It seems that nostalgia is not dead. I did a simple online search and all of a sudden find a zillion forums where people have expressed their love and fond memories of Sour Cream and Onion Doritos. One major problem though. Frito Lay discontinued them around 25 years ago! On one forum, someone wrote that when contacting Frito Lay, they flat out denied their existence. Yet clearly all the people on these forums remember these chips just like it was yesterday. Most comments about the chips are quite similar, as these folks keep saying that the Sour Cream and Onion flavored Doritos were their favorite. Heck, they were my favorite too! I wonder if the folks at Frito Lay ever visit these forums to find out what people think of their products. If the recipe/formula to Sour Cream and Onion Doritos still exists, then bringing back these wonderful chips would be most logical. After all, how could Frito lay argue with all these folks on deozens of forums? After doing a little research, I discovered that it seems the Sour Cream and Onion Doritos may have only been a regional product. They seem to have been sold primarily in the midwest ststes of the U.S. They came out around 1979. The TV commercials were quite memorable as well. Comedic actor Avery Schreiber was the official spokesperson of this product. His goofy antics certainly must have helped sell this flavor. Sadly though, within two or three years time, Sour Cream and Onion Doritos completely vanished. Nothing new with big companies, as they're always discontinuing products all the time. But according to these forums, it seems that this was Frito Lay's biggest goofup! There have been a couple of feeble attempts by Frito Lay to bring back this flavor including a flavor called Sonic Sour Cream. But the general consensus from true chip officionados have confirmed that this was quite inferior to the original. Others have expressed the opionion that even if they brought back Sour Cream and Onion Doritos, that they wouldn't taste the same due to different ingredients used today to make Doritos. Whether or not Frito Lay ever decides to ressurect the Sour Cream and Onion Doritos, one thing is clear and that is that dozens of people will never forget the impact this flavor had on their taste buds. Sure, it may sound silly but this very flavor inspired these folks to run to their local grocer to buy a big green bag of Sour Cream and Onion Doritos! Sadly, Avery Schreiber is now gone and so is this particular flavor but for those of us who remember, our memories will never die.

I do remember at a young age (I'm 41 now) they had sour cream and onion doritos they were the bomb! I would love to see these come back into existance, and yes frito lay they did exist. I remember when I took money out of my dads coin bank to buy these, I was addicted! I would love love for these to come back and have tried to find someone who sells them. I lived at the time in Hoopeston IL, I bought them at the A&P store and I believe at that time the bags were maybe a little more than 1.00 for a bag of them!

I remember those Doritos so well. I loved the green flecks of green onion on them. I could inhale a bag in one sitting. They were so addictive. I would ask my mom to get a bag every Thursday when she went to the grocer's. I would get in trouble in my fourth grade class for sneaking them out of my lunch bag before lunch time! It was definitely worth it!

I remember Sour Cream & Onion Doritos from when I was a kid in the late 70's, early 80's, I loved them, I bought them whenever I had a chance. It was Nacho cheese, then Taco flavor my next choices. If Frito/Lay's are denying they made Sour Cream & Onion Doritos, then the person who denied it doesn't know what they are talking about. Also it wasn't regional as what was thought, we had them in Connecticut also. If Frito/Lay's could bring back Nacho Cheese Cheetos that came out around the same time & brought it back in the 90's, they can do the same for Sour Cream & Onion Doritos.

I remember these when I was in elementary. It was a green bag that was a cellophane kind of material, it had a big green onion and a window where you could see the chips. I ask people all of the time if they remember these and they look dumbfounded all of the time. I thought maybe it was in my imagination until I saw this site. Too cool!

OMG,I'm so glad so many other people remember these! I have never been able to find one person who remembers them, thought maybe I was going crazy. I grew up in Mass, only about 25 miles outside of Boston, and we had them there. I wish they'd bring them back!

Oh my gosh! What a blast from the past. I am 42 now and I am from Austin, Texas from the west side of town. Those green bags of chips were only 25 cents at the Mini-Mart 1 block away from our house. I absolutely loved those chips and every now and then you would find a CLUMP of sour cream and onion down at the bottom of the bag. They had a very distinguishing taste and I wish to God companies would think long and hard before discontinuing every I like. You know? Like Lemon flavored jolly ranchers and banana and chocolate flavored BOMB POPS and oh let's not forget the WOW-WEE orange Harmonica sold at Halloween time. You could acutally blow it and it kept a tune and then chew on it with that ever so sweet taste til the taste left and wax became sooo hard. I tell ya....seems like the Good Ole' Days are in RETRO-LAND forever. Here's to YESTER-YEARS!! The 70's and the 80's. There will never be a decade like that one!

I remember riding in my Mom's car and passing a Frito-Lay delivery truck in the early 1980's. On the side of the truck were pictures of three flavors: Nacho Cheese, Corn & Sour Cream & Onion. I never saw them in the supermarket, but I never forgot that truck. Ever since then I've wanted to try this mysterious flavor. From reading the other postings it's nice to know that I wasn't seeing things. - Delaware -

I can't believe other people remember that favor. I just got off the phone with a Frito-Lay Rep about the new Quest product and I asked her about the sour cream and onion favor. She was not aware of that favor. I told her they should bring that favor back. I was born in the 70's in Mississippi and I remember the chips being in a green bag. They were my favorite.

From that YouTube commercial linked above, I see that the front of the bag says "Artificially Flavored" boldly on the face of the bag. Who knows, maybe the ingredients were found to cause cancer? Maybe the ingredients ended up on an FDA ban list for having addictive drugs :D ? Leslie. Are you sure you're thinking of the right chips? I don't remember ever seeing Sour Cream & Onion Dorritos, and I grew up in the '80s and '90s. I know of Pringles Sour Cream and Onion chips. Esther. I live in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas, and our local "Mini Mart" carries chocolate and bananna ice cream flavored "Bomb Sticks." I think they are what you refer to as "BOMB POPS."

Truley the best of all chips...I haven't had them since the late 80's....I found them selling in Hawaii on vacation in the late 80's early 90's and remember bringing back a couple of bags because they no longer sold them in southern california....another great flavor was the Taco flavor which is gone as well.....I hope that some Frito CEO with a cutting edge for change will bring back the old flavors at least for a trial run....I'm missing the flavor and those Green Bags!!

Thanks for confirming Sour Cream Doritos existed. I live in CT and would have been 7-9 years old when they were on the market back in the late 70's/early 80's. These were my favorite snack back then and I remeber buying the small green bags. This was 25 years ago, but I would say they closely resembled cool ranch in flavor. I have asked a number of people over the last 10 years and no one remebered them.

This is hilarious! I'm 40, and I thought I was the only weirdo that had imagined eating these as a kid!! I'm glad to see that they were in fact real (despite what the wise folks at Frito Lay might claim). I grew up in Silver Spring, MD and was addicted to buying these from a little store called Ertter's Market next to Montgomery Blair H.S. Wish they would bring them back. They were awesome. Spicy Nacho Cheese is a good consolation, though. :)

I actually went looking for these chips just now to find out the exact name of them. I was in highschool when I found them but according to people posting it seems like maybe they just did a regional release of them since I was in highschool in 2000. Our school store sold them and they had the same flavor described above. In fact, I believe the bag shown above is the picture from the bag released around 2000 as their newer bag design.

I have been telling friends about these for years. I MISS THEM SO MUCH! They WERE the ABSOLUTE BEST flavor. I have never understood why they had to get rid of them. Well, I also didn't understand them CHANGING the taco flavored ones! Remember the original ones from around the same time as the SC&O? They were SPECTACULAR and my SECOND favorite flavor. The flavor collisions Zesty taco and ranch something are close, so I have to console myself with those. I fully intend to contact Frito Lay and BEG ON BENDED KNEE for them to bring back the SC&O Doritos. Maybe if we all set a day to call them and make the request they will have so many at once they will be convinced? Anyone game?

I remember Sour Cream and Onion in the green bag. Use to get atleast 1 bag per week in the early 1980's. I also remember Taco flavored was good, and think that died out right around when Sour Cream and Onion came along. I tried the Taco at midnight flavor the other day, and it wasn't the same.

By the time I got home, they would almost be gone. Thanks for bringing back such wonderful memories. I've talked about these chips with my family and friends and it's great to see so many others have great memories as well.

I remember getting these out of a vending machine while vacationing at a "dude" ranch in Parksville, NY, back in the early 80s! We loved them so much, we kept buying them all weekend until the machine was empty. I called Frito Lay in 2000 or so to ask if they still made this variety and the woman I spoke with said the flavor had been discontinued in the mid-80s and the closest flavor now was "Taco," which I think has since been discontinued.

Wow! I can't believe so many people are still talking about the Sour Cream & Onion Doritos, after so many years (and 2 1/2 years on this thread!). I was just talking to my wife about them while eating some Cool Ranch. She doesn't remember the SC & O, but it's good that she knows it's not a figment of my imagination. I loved loved loved them...I do remember them coming out when I was in about the 1st grade, about 1979-1980. Around that same time they had the Taco flavored Dorito's (which I would liken to the Chili Cheese Fritos). Hey, didn't they also have a salsa flavor sometime about 15-20 years ago? I wouldn't give up all hope since Retro seems to be a good way for corporations to cash in on recyled ideas, but it's strange that they discontinued some well-loved flavors that obviously made an impression, and yet have stuck with the Cool Ranch for nearly 25 years.

OMG! I LOVED Sour Cream & Onion Doritos. When I was a little girl I remember my mom making a sandwich and we would stop by the store to get SC&O Doritos and then I would go ride ponies with a few of my friends. Great memories.. I'm so glad to know others remember this flavor and want it back too!

OMG! Every so often I think about the exhilariting flavor. This was my Saturday morning, early afternoon meal while watching cartoons. I was SO disappointed when they vanished! Some say that Cool Ranch is comparable --- I say ABSOLUTELY NO WAY! There was a kick of flavor in every bite. Your fingertips were covered with the powdery residue that you washed out in your mouth! They have so many trendy flavors, but Somebody start a petition and I'll be the FIRST to sign it to bring it back like it was.

Man when I was a youngster my Grandmother in San Diego CA. stayed by this store that sold Sourcream and onion Doritos...Best chips hands down they where 25 cents a bag and the bag was stuffed with them...They should bring them back in the summer months or around Super Bowl they would make a killing.....

I remember these chips. I bought a bag on a whim back in the 70s and I was in love with them. I am in NC and they sold these chips here. I used to beg my dad to buy the big 99 cent family bag. I was a kid but I could eat the whole bag. I wish Frito Lay would bring them back. I missed that big green bag of doritos especially with a Coke.

When I was growing up, Doritos Sour Cream & Onion was my favorite all time snack. I couldn't get enough of the Doritos. I grew up in Hawaii so I really don't think it was regional. Doritos or now Lay's should just be kind and at least release a limited edition.

I wonder if the fact Frito Lay dismissed they ever existed as one person here commented, if it is because there was a health danger ingredient in them & they don't want to get sued for past consumption & then took them off the market quickly & quietly. That is just a possible speculation though. OR, they have their own secret reasons why, or maybe they just didn't have the sales available to support continued distribution.

I have asked my husband as well as others if they remembered sour cream and onion doritos and they had no idea what I was talking about. I was telling my 13 year-old daughter how good they were and was trying to describe how good they taste. The ranch doritos are as close as they get, but nothing can compare. I used to buy them from a corner store on the way to school @ 56th & market in west philly while waiting for the 31 bus. Wow, what a thing to eat so early in the morning, but they sure were good!!! I surely would love to see them back in the stores again and that would be to stay!!!!

Instead of new flavors, why not at least do a test run in this new era? "Classic Sour Cream and Onion". I think they would sell real well now. Even General Mills listened when it came to the rye chips within Gardettos. Now you can buy em by the bag :)

I wrote to Frito Lay also and essentially got the same reply (word for word) as Sandy did. So, they clearly have a template response that's sent when they receive. I think the key difference here though, is that we're contacting them regarding a product from 25 years ago (!), thus, I think the loyalty (and memory) that people have towards this product should be noteworthy, meaning this is not just some random fad from the past several years! I think more people should write in and also specifically highlight how remarkable it is that we vividly remember one of their products from 25 years ago--I can't imagine this is a frequent occurrence for Frito Lay or, for that matter, any other food/snack company!!

Yeah, we had 'em here in Tacoma, WA. I remember them from '79 to early 80's. I'm almost 40. They were absolutely my favorite Dorito ever! I have been talking about them for years and no one ever remembers. Nice to hear that I'm not insane. I also remember the Sonic SC & O from the 90's - no, not the same. They were good but definitely not the obviously euphoria-inducing SC & O from the days of yore. The people at Frito Lay denying the existence are probably 18-25 and like so many of that generation, can't possibly imagine the world existing outside of themselves. Please no offense, I was also that age; it'll make sense soon. Please!!!! with the recent trends toward nostalgia on all sides, (i.e. Coke and Pepsi's "original recipe" sodas) lets open the vault, bring back the original recipe with the original ingredients. Heck, Doritos are $4 a bag anyway if you don't find them on sale. I'd pay $5 for those all day long. Give it a shot; market to the middle-aged, middle-income at the Costco's and Sam's Clubs. It'll get the word out and I'll buy a pallet myself. P.S. What would Jesus eat?

I was devastated when these doritos were discontinued. I'm so glad I (accidentally) found a place where people understand what I'm takling about.

I loved these Sour Cream and Onion Doritos as well. I used to get them every day for snack when I was in elementary school. I am 39 now, soon to be 40. They were my favorite then and still hold the spot to this day. All the little flecks of spice and onion were awesome. They tried to make cool ranch favor it somewhat but it still doesn't hold a candle to the original flavor of the sour cream and onion! Funny how it impacted many people this way. I never knew until I just googled them to see if they were sold anywhere. I used to eat them until I threw up, sadly enough, and then go eat more....hahaha..COME ON DORITOS>>>>>STEP UP AND BRING THEM BACK!!

I just told Frito Lay that I won't buy (and I don't) any other flavor of Doritos because none of them live up to Sour Cream and Onion. If all of us do this it might be worth it to them to start making Sour Cream and Onion Doritos again.

Definitely, the best tasting DORITOS!I remember eating them growing up and they were the bomb! I recently e- mailed FRITO-LAY and they told me that they were discontinued to make room for new flavors. I would definitely welcome them back with open arms. I tell my kids that they were better than COOL RANCH by a mile! Hope FRITO-LAY hears us loud and clear!

Loved them when I was a kid, picked up a bag of the new ones. Taste like cool ranch without much seasoning. Blah. I think the big push to rid the world of the evils of trans fats has something to do with it too. Pretty soon, the only thing that will be allowed to eat is gruel.

I bought a bag yesterday and I told myself to go back and buy a few. I went back to the same store today and they were ALL GONE!!! I was, so, so disappointed. The package says limited edition, so if I find them elsewhere, I'm gonna buy 10 bags. These were my favorite chips in the 80's and hands down the best Doritos EVER!!! Glad to see them back, even if it IS for a limited time (I just hope that they put them back permanently).

OMG..I am 42 years old and have wondered over the years why these chips were discontinued..they were absolutely my favorite..I think they are way better than cool ranch, I went to Walmart tonight and found a bag, I wondered if they were the same ones that were sold when I was a child, so I got online to find some info on the ones that were sold in the 70's..and stumbled onto this site, glad I am not the only one who is so happy to have a bag of these chips, brings back alot of childhood memories..and THEY ARE AMAMZING..YUMMY!!

OM Gosh, I cannot believe there is an actual Forum for Sour Cream and Onion Doritos. During my senior year in HS I would eat a bag everyday after school when I got of the bus with a 16oz Coke (in a glass bottle). This is amazing, I will be looking for them in my area.

Yeah, these were the best chip in the 80s, that somehow came and went in less than three months. I found a Superbowl display at a CVS Pharmacy in Los Angeles, which was near the checkout area, and they were 3-3/8oz bags (the big snack sized bag) for about $1.40 per bag, so I bought 10. Wow! They're just how I remember them - every chip is over-coated with the tasty powder. They appear to be limited, so grab some while you can. The expiration date on the bag is 2/8/12.

I remember these as a kid and Remember that the original sour cream and onion were a little light on the flavor and then were updated with a bolder sour cream and onion flavor and a few years later were discontinued . I wish the bolder flavored ones would come back.

OMG...YES YES YES....Those were my favorite too. I was just asking a few friends at work if they remember them and they dont. Everyday I would get off the school bus at our local convenience store and buy me a small bag and then one day they were gone. They were the best. I dont understand why they got rid of them. Orville reddinbocker use to make our cream and onion popcorn too. maybe it was something in the ingredients that were bad???

Yes they did exist and were the best doritos ever and no the cool ranch doesnt taste anything like them or any other flavor as a matter of fact because they were in their own catoragory in taste they were the best and i heard it was because of a lawsuit by another company as to why they were discontinued and claiming they never existed which is a clear bold faced lie because the green bag with the clear window did exist and was the best, frito lay theres gotta be a loop hole or someway to bring them back geeesh cmon they were truly the best chip ever made and your losing your mind by saying they werent a good seller

I called Frito Lay and they told me, too that The Sour & Onion "never existed!! I told them they are either ingnorant in the history of their product line or malicious deceptors and a manager, or someone, came on and told me I'd "better stop speading that gossip, or else!" I asked for his name and he got nervous and them hung up. I'll calling back ever week. Please, everyone do the same. This is a conspericy of the most corrupt.

I'm 44 today and have lived in the southeast all of my life. I often wondered about these magical chips and quick google search led me here. If Frito Lay denies the existence of these chips, then what else from my youth is a figment of my imagination? I vividly remember walking to my corner store in the early '80s and discovering this green bag of heaven. It seems like I made a daily journey to procure these culinary delights. Accompanied by a Mellow Yellow and a $100,000 bar, I was in completely content. One day out of the blue the green bags were missing. I was crushed. To Frito Lay I say, shame on you for discontinuing production and you owe a huge apology to my taste buds. Cool Ranch may be a close mimic to SCO Dorritos, but I my mind, they're not even comparable. I miss you green bag! You were a memorable part of my youth.

Sour Cream & Onion Doritos where my favorite snack food. In the late 70's early 80's every Friday after collecting money from my paper route I would by a big green bag for 99 cents and go home to watch TV. I actually think something happened involving a law suite with the flavor and someone possibly getting sick. Not sure but that's what I remember and could be the reason why Frito Lay is so mysterious about their existance. More research is needed!
