Doritos - US - Promotional Cards and Discs (1997)

Image

Distributed by Doritos chips in the US as part of the Special Edition promotional campaign, these 3D motion discs and cards are great. Most show two images when held at a different angle. A brief description of each disk and card is shown below. I will make an effort to scan these as well, but cannot guarantee the quality of the images, as the 3D nature of these items makes them difficult to reproduce in a scan.

There were 6 cards which were found in larger sized chip bags. In addition to the six basic cards, it was possible to find two bonus cards. Bonus cards were packaged 1 in every 2000 bags.

Collectors who also own the 1997 Australian Tazo set for Australia will recognize some of the 3D discs from the US Doritos set as being nearly identical. In the US, the total number of discs available to collect was relatively small compared to the number of tazos in other countries, but all of our discs were 3D multi-motion discs and a great deal of fun.

Discs were found packaged in the smaller individual size bags of Doritos chips, while cards were found in the larger family sized bags of chips.
