Mordant is the French equivilant for Zesty.
Now , I too would assume Doritos , but as we never saw the chips, Zesty Mordant means "zesty zesty",and there are many brands of chips that have a Zesty version ,so, we can only assume.......................

EDIT:

Ok ,after visiting Doritos website , I see by the label that it must be Doritos!

That's it Saucy And Shit Machine Gun! I read earlier when you mentioned that "Mordant is the French equivilant for Zesty" that I'll bet that's what the joke is.  Ricky reads the bilingual label (Zesty in English and Mordant in French) and thinks the nachos are called Zesty Mordant.  Thing was I had never heard of that flavor before until I saw it in that link you provided.  It says right on the label of the Zesty Cheese flavor Zesty Mordant ha ha.

And to Shit Machine Gun for naming the flavor.  That's the kind that I eat, but I must have blocked out the Mordant part, it didn't ring a bell at all :)

Mordant = Zesty?

It is more of a meaning that this flavour it is strong or will bite or it has the ability to be bitting.

My wife calls them stinky Feet chips, because they stink so bad, but taste so good.  Not that she knows what stinky feet taste like, I hope.

Yeah , I explained the "bite" in my eplanation in the Season 5 episode 8 thread.
Zesty is of course a very loose translation mordant ,but good enough for some cheesie Doritos.  :lol:

What flavor is All Dressed exactly?  Never seen any chips with a name  like that down here in the states.

No All Dressed!?! All dressed is supposed to be all chip flavourings in one bag, but really it tastes to me mostly like BBQ and something else that I can't identify. Maybe one of the other hosers here can describe it better.

As for the 'Zesty Zesty' chips, I used to work in a grocery store & have seen my share of 'not so bright' people. The one lady I remember was asking me about chips (why? I don't remember), and she picked up a bag of 'Regular' chips ('Nature' in French), and asked me what flavour Regular Nature chips were; I'm pretty sure I was stunned & didn't say anything right away, but tried to explain the bi-lingualism of the bag. I'm pretty sure I've also heard people seriously refer to Jalapino chips by pronouncing the 'J'.
I had never noticed the Zesty flavour of Doritos before, so I wasn't sure if Ricky was just not realizing Mordant is Zesty in French, but it totally makes sense.g

Quote from above web site ^^^^^

Taste: These are some of the most flavorful Ruffles I've ever had. They've got all sorts of spices in them — ketchup, onion, garlic and more. Pretty good.

Aroma: Sort of ketchupy.

Melba has it right.  All flavours, ketchup, bbq, salt vinegar, plain, all blended together to get a sweet, bbqy flavour.  Impossible to describe.  Every brand of chips has a different tasting all dressed.  They are my favourite.  It's like getting a pizza or burger with everything on it as opposed to just ketchup or just pepperoni.

I've heard that the US doesn't have a lot of our canadian flavors of chips.  That's another thing to add to the canadian subtleties that the US may not understand.

Post by: Melba the Disco Queen on Jun 07, 2005, 02:45 PM
Thanks saucy! I guess BBQ & Ketchup are the most prevalent flavours for me.
Is that what everyone tastes? Do some flavours stand out more than others for some people? I know these are stupid questions, but I'm curious, if you had to describe the flavour of All Dressed, how would you?

I'm a sour cream 'n onion guy , so the all dressed is a bit too much for me. :lol:

Title: Useless Zesty Mordant Trivia.
Post by: Smokey McDoob on Sep 20, 2005, 09:44 PM
Zesty Mordant, aka Zesty Cheese Doritos, are my absolute favorite flavour of taco chips.  Love 'em, but they're addictive as shit, so I try not to buy 'em too often.

Anyway, this flavour is unique to Canada because Frito Lay inherited it when they bought Hostess.  (Way) back in the day, these little gems used to be called Hostess Taquitos, and Zesty Cheese was always the most popular flavour, so I guess Frito had to keep 'em.  There was another flavour, Chili or Taco or some shit that was awesome, but never made it into the Dorito family.

Hell, I'm gettin the munchies just writing about this.

Yeah i always figured that was the joke of the title. It was, after all, based on a line Ricky said in the episode and knowing Ricky's unique grasp of language, he would probably just assume the French translation was part of the name of the chips, hence why he'd call them "Zesty Mordant", just like this lady with her "Regular Nature" chips.

So I've now tried Zesty Mordant chips. They're very zesty to say the least! It took me a loooong time to finish the entire bag (not personal size bag, but the bigger type bag). I haven't seen the Ketchup Doritos around for a while, I really liked them, has anyone noticed them in stores recently? I'm worried that they weren't popular & have been discontinued or something.

I actually tried a bag last week myself!  The grocery store I shop at had Doritos on for $2.00 / bag [regular $2.75 / bag] and they were out of my fav - Cool Ranch - so I tried Zesty Mordant flavour.  They were a little more "zesty" than I thought they'd be but I still managed to chow down the entire bag before the movie ended  :oops:.

Yesh, a little heart-stopping snack from time to time, won't take us off of the planet so early,but I do feel stupid eatin "bad" food too often. Lay off of the fried snacks, baked is better.

I love the phrase 'Zesty Mordant'!  I can remember watching the episode and wondering what flavour it would be, assuming it was a Rickyism.  Now seeing this thread makes it even funnier. 

Does anyone else get phrases that roll off the tongue in such a way that you actually like saying them over and over?

Oh-Just me then.

The guy 2 cubicles over gets Zesty Mordant almost every afternoon.  I can smell them from my desk as soon as he opens the bag.  I usually mooch a couple :)

I bought a big bag of Zesty Mordant at lunch, and a bag of Cool Ranch 2/$5.
