Earlier this week, an image surfaced on Reddit of a sample station for a new flavor of PepsiCo, Inc..'s PEP Mountain Dew: Doritos. Or, as show in the picture, “Dewitos.”
A Mountain Dew spokesperson told TIME that the product is being tested at some colleges and universities.
Mountain Dew is known for trying out bold flavors, including Code Red, Solar Flare and Voltage. Once the image started going viral, Twitter lit up with comments and questions about the prospective new flavor.
A few people seemed to think the idea was very American:
Doritos. Flavored. Mountain. Dew. America! America! America! http://t.co/KxWdtKZuYU— Alex Wagner (@alexwagner) November 10, 2014
Most appeared to not like the flavor combo:

And many made jokes about it:
Doritos flavored Mountain Dew is perfect for everyone who loves Doritos but can't eat because they've lost their teeth from Mountain Dew.— Susan Burke (@ThatSusanBurke) November 11, 2014
Honestly, I thought there'd be Mountain Dew flavored Doritos first.— geoff tate (@geofftate96) November 11, 2014
Doritos-flavored Mountain Dew is joke-proof because you can't come up with anything funnier than the fact that it exists.— Davey Pretension (@thepretension) November 11, 2014
Doritos better be working on a mountain dew flavored chip. Then we can get this over with and move on.— Mike (@Dj_mTp) November 10, 2014
