2021 is already full of fun food surprises! Though Tangy Pickle Doritos were officially released in the United States this past summer, the sour chips, which quickly developed a devoted fanbase, were very hard to find and could seemingly only be located at a handful of smaller chains such as Dollar General and Circle K.

However, thanks to the success of its debut, the savory snack has now been spotted at several major retailers across the country. The brand confirmed to Food Network that Tangy Pickle Doritos are currently available in select locations through the beginning of 2021 in two sizes. The 2.75-ounce bags have a suggested retail price of $1.89, while the 9.75-ounce bags have a suggested retail price of $4.29.

According to the @frontpagefoodfinds Instagram account, the chips, which have a dill and vinegar-like flavor, can now be found at larger supermarkets such as Wawa and Stop & Shop.

“This time around they seem to be popping up all over the place!” the caption stated. “I found the smaller bags (2 3/4 oz) at Wawa and the larger bags (9 3/4 oz) at Stop & Shop. I also spotted the larger bags at Dollar General last night.”

Though it’s not exactly clear where else the Tangy Pickle Doritos might be available, they’re pretty easy to spot on supermarket shelves. Per the picture that was part of the @frontpagefoodfinds Instagram post, the chips come in a vibrant green bag with a hue that resembles that of a pickle. Additionally, the “i” in pickle has been replaced by a pink lightning bolt.

Prior to their American release, pickle-flavored Doritos were available in Canada and a handful of other countries, though they were called Intense Pickle Doritos instead.

News of Tangy Pickle Doritos’ increased availability comes just days after Frito-Lay, the makers of the popular chips, released an updated take on ’90s darling Doritos 3D. Dubbed Doritos 3D Crunch, the revamped snack boasts the same iconic three-dimensional shape as Doritos 3D and comes in Chili Cheese Nacho and Spicy Ranch varieties.

2021 is shaping up to be a great year for snack lovers!
