These snacks were the best. hey were like combos but a potato chip shell instead of pretzel with dip in the middle. from what i heard combos sued them for patent infringment or something. which sucks because they were sooo tasty!!!! Miss them!

I miss Doolies, they were the best snack, much better than Combos! (don't know if this is true, found on another site:) Cornquistos was discontinued in 1992. Also had a Potato shell filled with Dip called Doolies. All the same company - Masterfoods. They still make Combos.

I loved Doolies. I have been trying to figure out what happened to them...they where great.

I have always wondered what happened to Doolies. Doolies when I was in Jr. High I'd always buy them at the pool for a snack. I'm glad to see there are others that miss them, too. Combo's are no comparison - bring back Doolies.

Yes, Doolies were the BEST!!! Combos can't even begin to compare with Doolies. Doolies should've sued them!!

OMG!!!!!! thanks google and yinz for remembering the name of these!!!!! i too miss them and wish like hell they were still around, i bet that if combos made these, they'd totally outsell combos, 5-1, cuz i'd be buying them like 10 at a time. i too loved sucking out the innards and chomping on the salty outer potato shell, mmmmmm!!!! wish i had me a big ol bag of the right now

I work for Mars and fondly remember Doolies. Back then they were made by a division of ours called Snackmaster. I still have a Doolies green apron at home from a trade promotion. I'll try and send you a picture to post.

I really enjoyed Doolies because it was like a chip filled with dip. I used to eat almost a whole bag of those popular snacks at a time! I had not seen this product since the late 1980s.

The best ever!! I remember the old commercial- "Doo-lies--- crunchy and smooth all at once!"

It is really a SAD SAD thing that Doolies is done now, it is now 2011 and they still are not back, doubt that they ever will. I agree Combos are not as tasty as Doolies and I doubt that they ever will be as good. Doolies rocks!!! Bring them back!!!

Ok, I emailed Combos website too, But we need More people to do this not just me and Tim.

There are somethings you never forget. If someone ever were to ask me today what the best snack chip is today, I would have to say combos. But combos still can't even come close to my all time favorite, doolies. What's wrong with having both?
robin - April 07, 2011 - Report this comment
I have been trying to remember the name for years. Wish they would bring them back
Brian - May 21, 2011 - Report this comment
Ah yes the small green metalic bag,the chip with dip, flavor inside and out.I recall only 2 flavors though SC&O and cheddar, just the name was tough to remember. Another great snack lost to corporate greed.

I have searched years to find Doolies on line. Best snack ever. An addiction. Found in Richmon, VA in early 80's. Then they disappeared. Unbelievable! Somebody figure out the recipe and start making them to sell. I'll order a case.

Remember going to our small town's only grocery store with friends and buying them out of these. They were phenomenal!! Wish they'd bring them back. I think there were some that were nacho cheese flavored and they were awesome!!

I loved those Sour cream & onion Doolies! I used to enjoy those as a 15 year old boy! Where the stinkin' hell have they gone since then. Now I'm 41 and mad they took my favorite food away those bad thieves!

I loved these as a kid! My husband and I have been trying to remember the name! Thank you! It's been driving us crazy. Now, if only we could bring them back.
E - January 08, 2013 - Report this comment
There was a snack just like a combo. But it was filled with a nacho cheese, and the outside was more like a cracker that kind of tasted like a potato chip. Almost like a chedder fries type fo cracker. I cant remember the name of them? I dont think it was doolies, they were sooooo freaking good, I would eat a bag at a time!!
triryche3 - April 03, 2013 - Report this comment
I've been craving these for years! When I discovered them that would be all I'd ask my Mom for as a snack. She'd get her a bag too :) of course she'd have to share with our cat, as he loved them too, at least the sc&o filling which he'd lick till the chip was soggy. I agree with you other commenter's BRING THEM BACK!!
barron - April 14, 2013 - Report this comment
IF those were to make a comeback they would no doubt outsell most of the leading chip brands. They were the best. Loved em as a kid.

Thank God someone remembered the name of these snacks. None of my friends believed me that they existed, but I don't see how they could have forgotten such delicious-ness!!

I think they were spelled Dooleys. It says on the internet that Combos sued them in the 80's but I can't find any real evidence about that
Jason Paul Combs - March 28, 2014 - Report this comment
I remember Dooleys well. It was 1985 and Dairy Queen introduced the blizzard and Pizza Hut introduced the priazzo, but my favorite food snack was dooleys. after the bag was empty you could see large amounts of grease and just knew your heart was going to pay the price later on in life...but it was worth it. mmmmmm
aj - June 27, 2014 - Report this comment
My family used to eat a whole bag of these Dooleys every Sunday. We couldn't wait to get to my grandma's place after church on Sunday so we could eat the greatest snack ever. Combos are a cheap second place option compared to the Dooley. Wish they would bring this back!
Debbie - July 24, 2014 - Report this comment
I was obsessed with these growing up. I loved them so much that my family used to wrap bags of them up for my birthday. Nobody ever knew what I was talking about until now. Combos will now be getting a hate letter from me and a request for them.

Who will ever forget those wonderful Doolies snacks a potato chip filled with sour cream and onion dip. I had those last in the mid 1980s. Please bring them back!!!!!

I loved these snacks but I remember their name being cornquistos. I ate them several times daily in 80's. corn filled nacho cheese snacks the were awesome and I miss them. I also would still buy them if they made them again. sooo sad they r gone

I don't remember ever munching on Doolies, but they sound amazing! Combos suck now, almost no filling and mostly all pretzel or cracker shell. Bring back Doolies in 2017!!!

Doolies were so good. I remember watching 80's twilight zone episodes and wrecking a whole bag myself. I was 9.

I also have searched on and off for years for these snacks. Dooleys were my absolute favore during the late 80's. Sour cream and onion could not be beat. Are we sure that Dooley were made by the same company that makes combos? Is it materfoods? I would think if they brought them back they would do very well.

Can someone upload a photo? Someone said they still had a coupon, maybe there's a photo on the coupon? I can't find a photo anywhere.

This is the site! I've dreaming about doolies and anytime I go back down memory lane NOBODY HAS NO INCLINATION ABOUT DOOLIES! There where three brands, nacho , cheddar and sour cream and onion. I use to smash 4 to 5 a week. I'm a Pringles freak and back then then came in the twin packages okay those who remember. I knew those had more quantity but, the taste of doolies you could eat it three ways. Suck the cream out then just let shell melt on down in your mouth. Or let the shell as a whole melt in your mouth. Or break it in half and lick both sides of the cream out. However you ate it it was fun food and they came with this combo bull**** to compete and they bought doolies out. No one wants to eat a pretzel all the time unless it's the soft pretzel from six flags or silver dollar city with the hot cheese. Ummm. However I'm glad to see I'm not alone thinking about these forgotten chips that ruled. I wonder how many people can remember TREMORS at six flags? Get at me.

I had been trying for ages to remember what this delicious snack of my adolescence was called and then found this thread - thank you all! I have such fond memories of devouring these while having late night movie marathons as a kid, but could never remember the name of them. Anyway, after finding the name I also found this gem - a Dooley's TV commercial from the 80's on YouTube (I submitted it as a link above), but here it is again for your enjoyment. I must warn you that it will make crave them and wish them back into existence even more though...

I’ve been googling doolie’s at least once a year for the past 10 years and I could never find one single thing about them. Not even on wiki. I started to think I was getting the name wrong. Back in the day the only place I could find these in Virginia was People’s drug store. The filling inside was the same as the sour cream and onion crackers from Lance. Delicious.

I wrote to them in the 1996 ish year....Mars foods and pretty much BEGGED them to either bring them back or give me the recipe. They pretty much said "thanks. no"

Looking for Doolies and found you! I was craving them but couldn't remember what they were called. I cannot believe they never brought them back! I used to buy them all the time when I was bagging groceries for the local grocery store that's of course no longer there. Sad. The 80s were the best!
