Fried Cheese Crusted with Doritos is Coming to a 7-Eleven Near You

(TODAY) -- While our cups runneth over with salty, cheesy, fatty drunk food, there is indeed something new to crave and then hate ourselves over the next morning: Doritos Loaded – fried cheese patties with a Doritos Nacho Cheese flavored crust.

The guilty pleasure snack is rolling out at 7-Eleven nationally July 2, after it was offered in a few test markets. It’s 7-Eleven's move toward becoming a food destination, capitalizing on the popularity of Doritos Locos Tacos. “Our research indicated that the warm cheese center was highly motiving from a guest purchase intent,” a spokesperson for 7-Eleven told TODAY.com. Warm cheese center… mmmm…we’re feeling motivated already.

Shaw adds that “the warm melted cheese center of Doritos Loaded is made from a proprietary blend of American, cheddar and Romano cheeses, and seasonings.”

So is it worth a try? We got a sneak preview, and in two words, OH YEAH!

The triangular patties are served piping hot, so take it slow before you burn your mouth on the first bite. The Doritos crust is salty, crunchy and intensely cheesy in that chemical-y Doritos way. It has a blast of flavor and is the perfect snack after a night of partying. It's not refined and is terribly unhealthy, but wow is it tasty. It’s worth the walk of shame you’ll be doing out of 7-Eleven – and conveniently, it’s portable, so you don’t have to do that walk alone.

    (KCEN) – While the homeless veteran count is dropping nationwide, Killeen and Temple are seeing a spike in the number of homeless veterans – and it's not just individual veterans. “We're seeing more homeless families, and we've seen an increase in that over the last few months because of the downsizing of the military,” Paula Wood said. “It's very sad to look a family in the eye and say do you have a friend or family member you can stay with because it's going to take a month to get you re-ho...More >>

    (NBC) -- A federal judge Friday threw out new Texas abortion restrictions that would have effectively closed more than a dozen clinics in the state. U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel sided with clinics that sued over one of the most disputed measures of a sweeping anti-abortion bill signed by Republican Gov. Rick Perry in 2013. The ruling stops new restrictions that would have left just seven abortion facilities open in Texas by Sept. 1; there are currently 19 providers in Texas, according to th...More >>
