School Bans Doritos Roulette Crisps After Pupil's Breathing Difficulties

16 July 2015

Doritos Roulette have been on sale in the UK for a few months now, and the idea behind them is that one in every handful of crisps has been coated in a special super hot 'fiery' coating.

Now these crisps have been banned by The George Pindar School in Scarborough after one pupil suffered breathing difficulties after eating them.

A letter was sent home to parents warning them the snack can cause ‘severe distress’ after the pupil, who suffers from asthma, was left struggling to breathe.

‘In relation to the cautionary note in our newsletter with regard to the Dorito Roulettes, it was placed in there after an incident with a student where they had experienced some difficulty breathing after eating one,’ a spokesperson for the school told The Metro.

They added: ‘The student had a pre-existing respiratory condition which clearly made them sensitive to the ‘hot’ element of the Doritos chip.’

Doritos have responded by explaining that there are warnings on the packet that they are very spicy, and also that they are not suitable for young children. However it has been reported that they have been banned in the US already, and the advertising campaign boasts that they will "bring you close to tears".
