An old 90s snack favourite is back: Doritos has launched a new Doritos 3D Crunch chip range across Australia in three bold flavours.

The three-dimensional treat will be available in Extreme Cheese, Spicy Salsa, and Sweet Chilli as it debuts on Aussie shelves from Tuesday, April 26th onwards. A 130g bag of Doritos 3D Crunch will set you back $3.75, while a 70g will be going for $2.64.

Coles, Woolworths, and other independent retailers will be selling the snack, although Sweet Chilli will only be available in Woolies.

The return of the chip range has been a long time coming. The 3D chip has been the most requested Doritos innovation to come back to the country, with customers repeatedly asking on social media for its return over the past two decades.

The new and improved Doritos 3D Crunch is back and supposedly better than ever. The puffed-up versions of the classic triangle-shaped corn chip offer a lighter, airier and crispier version of Doritos, providing the ultimate crunching experience for taking the bold flavours to another dimension.

“We’re super excited to bring this much-loved chip back with a bold bang,” Doritos marketing manager Katherine Twomey shared. “Instead of bringing back the original, we’ve evolved the product to reflect the snacking trends of a new generation. We’re thrilled to introduce a new version and give this much-loved snack its very own glow up.”

What other gone-but-not-forgotten snacks should return next? Aussies got very involved last year when someone asked “What discontinued foods do you miss?” in the Australia subreddit.

The most popular suggestion was – no surprise really – the old school Milo bar. “Not the ones with the little crispy milo balls mixed with a fake Boost bar, the OG one that was hard compacted Milo surrounded by chocolate,” said someone else wholeheartedly.
