    His bereaved family will have to wait until the will is read later next month to find out who he left his Cool Ranch to.

    Spillin' some Dorito crumbs out on the curb for my homie...

    I love Doritos, the original Taco were my favorite, but now it's Spicy Sweet Chili. Munching some as we speak.

    I remember back in the mid 90's they put out a Colby Jack Doritos. I've seen it in the grocery stores for several months and then it disappeared.

    Two years ago I liked the Chesseburger Doritos and now its gone. But I was told the sales were down on that flavor.

    Wow: The man invented one of the most long-lived and best selling party-snacks/chips ever, has probably made enough money for the next 10 generations to be extremely wealthy, and died at 97?

    I'm gonna' roll the dice and say the man did alright for himself. :lol
