Perhaps, you're the kind of person who thinks all food ultimately ends up in the same place, so there's little point in separating your dinner and your dessert.

In that case, we have some great news for you. PepsiCo is now testing the monstrous mashup of Doritos-flavored Mountain Dew, fittingly dubbed Dewitos.
MMORPG gamers of the world, rejoice.
In case you were wondering if PepsiCo's test kitchens had been momentarily invaded by the kind of hormonally motivated pregnant women who find themselves desperately craving maple fudge and horseradish at dawn, PepsiCo confirmed that its flavor scientists are constantly working on new ways to do the Dew.
"We are always testing out new flavors of Mountain Dew, and giving our fans a voice in helping decide on the next new product has always been important to us," PepsiCo's reps said in a statement to Quartz. "We opened up the DEW flavor vault, and gave students a chance to try this Doritos-inspired flavor as part of a small program at colleges and universities."
A Reddit user named joes_nipples was the first person to reveal Dewitos to the world, writing that PepsiCo had offered several different varieties of Mountain Dew in the course of a product-testing event. "I think the flavors were lemon ginger, mango habanero (also weird), and rainbow sherbet, which tasted like medicine," the user wrote.

Of the Dewitos itself, which was served at room temperature, the user said: "It honestly wasn't that disgusting. It tasted like orange, with a Doritos aftertaste. It tasted like straight Doritos afterwards, though. Weirdest thing I've ever drunken." The user added that the flavor was "like if you shoved a handful of Doritos in your mouth and chugged some Dew at the same time."
"Someone at the Mountain Dew design department was getting really high," joes_nipples added. (Mashable)
