Loved them... I especially remember the circular "window" on the bag where you could see in. I loved those bags!

I miss the original cheese ones, they were awesome. I remember in the 90s they came out with the salsa and cream cheese ones and another flavor. They were so good. I do like the plain ones for dipping, but I crave the original cheese ones so much!!

nwojczak@gmail.com--- I echo your thoughts! I still think of these sharp nacho cheese flavored Tostitos all the time! They were SOOOOOOO much better than Doritos. If I could have one item from my childhood, this would be it !

I agree!!! I too think about the nacho cheese flovored Tostitos, often! They need to bring them back!!!!! and in the same yellow bag!

No one believes me that Tostitos nacho cheese chips ever existed, and in fact, that they were better than Doritos!

I e-mailed Frito-Lay a few months back and asked them to bring back that flavor. They have experimented with all the WEIRD Dorito's flavors (cheeseburger? seriously?), but nothing matched the flavor of Nacho Cheese Tostito's

I just called Frito lay and ask them to bring them back and how much my husband loved them the person i talked to(very nice and helpful lady) said she could not find nothing on a nacho cheese flavor that they ever made. another co worker that had been there longer helped her find them.please folks contact them and tell them BRING THEM BACK. I even included there # If you wish to contact them by phone during business hours, please call them toll free at 1-800-352-4477, Monday - Friday 9AM to 4:30 PM Central Standard Time

Another vote for the cheese flavored Tostitos. They ruled. You have to wonder - does FritoLay ever monitor sites like this and "RoadFood?" Spare us the crazy flavors of Doritos they're coming up with now, and bring back nacho cheese Tostitos and original taco flavored Doritos!

cream cheese salsa tostitos were my fav.. everyday after school id park myself in front of my television and eating those till i was blue in the face.. bring them back!

In the early 1980s, these use to come in single serve packages that were 35 cents. They were round instead of triangular like Dorito's. They came in a white bag with an Aztec design, and clear window. My favorite was the cheese flavor, which was milder than Dorito's Nacho Cheese.

They need to bring these back. They were amazingly good. Different than Doritos. They both had their place.

Nacho Cheese flavored Tostidos were the best!!! How come they discontinued this flavor?

I loved Nacho Cheese Tostitos. They were the best ever. I would love to have those again.

I smell conspiracy. Frito Lay doesnt want competition to there beloved doritos. I cry FOUL! ITS BEEN OVER 20 YRS SINCE THEY TOOK OUR NACHO CHEESE TOSTITOS (OR SO) REVOLT I SAY!!!!!REVOLT!!!

I get weird looks from my kids when I talk about wanting Cheese flavored Tostitos, and my kids are adults now. PLEASE BRING BACK THE CHEESE FLAVORED TOSTITOS-ROUNDS! =)
Raul - October 01, 2011 - Report this comment
The cheese flavored Tostitos were awesome crispy and since everything is being "throwback" (Pepsi, Mountain Dew), Frito Lay should "throwback" to cheese Tostitos Rounds. I've recently had Taco flavored Doritos, you can find them every now and then.
Damian - October 08, 2011 - Report this comment
Me and my 4 siblings talk about these (nacho cheese tostitos) all of the time. We all echo the same sentiment of not understanding why they stopped making them. Head and shoulders the best chips ever IMO. Glad to see there are others out there that remember and would love to see them make a return
Jaimee - October 30, 2011 - Report this comment
I LOVED these chips (cheese)....I would give anything for them to come back! PLEASE bring them back!
Sergio - January 16, 2012 - Report this comment
I found a similar taste in generic form. I live in Keller TX and found them at Albertsons. They are called Julio's Tortilla Chips. They are not round, but immediately reminded me of the original Tostitos. They are made in Del Rio TX - 877-616-2240

Does any one else think that the Yellow corn round tostitos tasted so much different and better in the early 80's then the yellow corn rounds they make today?? the bag was yellow and had the clearview in the middle with the aztec design. i hope they will bring back the original taste.

I have a theory that years ago Doritos paid Frito Lay to take them off the shelves and never speak of them again. It was the only direct competition and when left with the only one nacho cheese option in Doritos what choice do we have?

I miss the salsa and cream cheese ones so much :(

Why does all the good stuff disappear its not fair come on Frito lay bring them back. Just once...please
Anna - September 17, 2012 - Report this comment
Which flavor came out in the late 90's when the hint of lime ones did? I wanna say some kind of chile or cheese flavor, but they weren't spicy at all. Those were the BEST chips ever and no one remembers them!!!!
Deb - October 24, 2012 - Report this comment
Yes I wish they would bring back the nacho cheese tostitos. They were the best..Very flavorful.
Paula - November 15, 2012 - Report this comment
I remember like a cheese and salse flavor (maybe the cream cheese and salsa flavor) i know they were a white tortilla chip though. and they came out the same time the clear pepsi did! BRING THEM BACK!!!! ATLEAST once a year. ya know let us 80's babies enjoy something from the past since its been 20+ yrs and they STILL HAVENT made time travel machines :)

Does anyone remember a lime and chilli flavor? I remember them when I was really little. They tasted like the hint of lime one, but it was spicier.
Sylvia - January 06, 2013 - Report this comment
I remember tostitos chili lime chips , they were the best I would eat them in the morning. The only one I see now is the one with a hint of lime it's gross ,what happened to chili lime was it discontinued or what ?

Oh my God I finally found some people who remember! I loved the cheese flavored ones better than doritoes! I wish they would bring them back!

Yummmmmy! I can't remember the last time I tried them but it has been during adulthood for me. Like many other long ago snacks, I found a bag in the vending machine at my job, lol.

Bring back the salsa and cream cheese tostitos!!! I'm begging!! They were the best.
Deb - October 17, 2013 - Report this comment
Loved cheese Tostitos! They were definitely better than Doritos. However, the same company made both products, so it doesn't make sense that they stopped selling them because of Doritos. Either product would make them money, so why not give consumers a CHOICE?

I remember the cheese Tostitos in the yellow bag with Aztec design. I loved them so much! I thought I was the only one who remembered and want them back. I have not found anything that came close to being better. Please bring them back!!

I agree, BRING BACK THE NACHO CHEESE TOSTITOS.......They were my total favorite!Yes, I'm from the 80s too...... I'm calling that number to inquire...... Let's petition for them to bring'em back......
Victoria - February 11, 2014 - Report this comment
I agree with most of the people on here as well as the people I talk to on a regular bases and people I've just met, chit/chat. The consensus is as follows: We enjoyed the cheese Tostitos and would greatly appreciate if you could bring those back. Yes, they were much, much better than any of the Doritos brands. They were perfect! Please consider doing a throwback celebration to the 80’s and make them for a year. Your sales would be astronomical. We talk about them all the time because we LOVE them.

Nacho Cheese Tostitos Were My Favorite! Please, Please, Please Bring Them Back.

For some reason they were even great with salsa which seems to be a dead combo. Damn you Frito Lay!

Not sure if this is still around.. A cinnamon flavored chip by Tostitos? Something like that.. Anyway, I used to eat those a lot when I was younger, and yes, while Anyway, I've been looking around Google, nothing super definitive.. So I'm wondering if anyone's even seen them, or if they just don't make those anymore, or if I"m just going crazy.

HELL YEAH!!!! I found this site while reminiscing about one of my all time favorite snack foods, the Nacho Cheese Tostitos!!! They were SOOOOOO much better than Nacho Cheese Doritos, and they really need to bring them back. Hell, they made a Mountain Dew flavored Dorito, cant they just give us back our Nacho Cheese Tostitos (original recipe please, I don't care if it costs more, or if the ingredients offend someone, they were AWESOME!!!)? The weirdest thing ws that the wikipedia page for Tostidos doesn't even mention the Nacho Cheese flavor, which is sad. It's almost as if they don't want people to know about them. On a positive note, I've been able to find one of my old favorites, Taco flavored Doritos, and have been eating WAAAYYY too many of them lol! I might as well try to edit the Wiki page and add the Nacho Cheese flavor :)

Like all of you on here I remember Tostitos Nacho cheese. Really wish they'd bring them back. I hate doritos. Don't know why they won't bring them back.

Ohhhhhhh how I would LOVE to devour an entire bag of Nacho Cheese Tostitoes!!! They were the BEST!! I can't stand Doritoes!! Way to much cheesy flavor. Tostitos were my fav!! It would be fabulous if they brought them back if even just for a "limited" time!! Like a throw back!! UGH

OMG!!!! i was just talking about the nacho cheese Tostitos last week to people and they looked at me like i was nuts. They were sooo yummy. I have the same theory that they have an agreement to not compete with Doritos. That is sooo not fair. If it's the same company it makes no sense. I am definitely gonna call the number that someone posted. Everyone on here should call as well. Please!!!! LET'S BRING BACK OUR TOSTITOS!!!!!!
eddie - September 07, 2014 - Report this comment
Doritos do not hold a candle to salsa and cream cheese. Suck it up big D and bring back the good stuff. The only way i can eat Doritos anymore is if they're smothered by something. I would eat Tostitos salsa and cream cheese by the bag.

The cheese tostitos are the best chips I ever had. Doritos don't come close to this. Oh how I miss them.

I remember these chips from the early 1980's and they were the best..way better than Dorito's. Now if Frito-Lay can produce Wasabi-ginger or Cappuccino flavored potato chips why can't they bring back Tostito nacho cheese flavored chips?
