Could this be the next big mashup to take the country by storm?
Doritos lover and 7-Eleven patron Kevin Cobb stumbled upon an usual combination at a D.C.-area 7-Eleven: mozzarella sticks coated with Doritos flavoring.
“You think they’re naturally crunchy, but they weren’t at all. They tasted like nacho cheese Doritos filled with queso,” he told ABC News. “But the consistency was kind of like a regular cheese stick, except filled with nacho cheese. I definitely got my cheese fix for the day.”
He took to Twitter about his discovery--what a 7-Eleven employee called Doritos Loaded --in a series of excited tweets.

A 7-Eleven representative told Yahoo! that Doritos Loaded is “a product that is in test," and that it was “too soon to really talk about it." An employee at the store location said she knows of two other 7-Eleven stores in Washington, D.C. selling the cheesy snack.
If the success of the Doritos Locos Tacos is any indication, these new bites could be a hit with Doritos lovers everywhere.
