doritos fire starter

Can you really start a fire in the woods using store-bought snacks like Doritos? Apparently you can.


You can kindle a fire using just about anything, but when you’re in the middle of nowhere and don’t have a lot of fire-starting supplies, a user at social news site Reddit notes that Doritos make an excellent fire starting material.

Of course, just about any chip will do (and you’ll still need a match or something to spark your fire). User JimothyBilliam says “Cheetos work even better,” survivalist_guy says “So do Fritos,” and user imsabbel offers an explanation for why chips work so well:

All kind of chips work for that. Works as well as birch bark for starting a fire in a hurry.
If you think about it, it’s basically pure hydrocarbons (which burn) soaked in fat (which burns).

So while you may not always have vaseline and cotton balls around, chances are pretty good that you do have some form of tasty, oily, fire-friendly chips that should as kindling work in a pinch.
