The metaverse is becoming an increasingly popular space for brands to connect with their customers in new and exciting ways. One such brand that has taken the plunge is Doritos, who have recently built a virtual plot of land in the Decentraland metaverse platform. In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at what Doritos has created in the metaverse and what it means for the brand.
For those unfamiliar with Decentraland, it is a virtual world built on blockchain technology where users can create, experience, and monetize content and applications. Decentraland's metaverse is made up of individual plots of virtual land that users can purchase and develop as they see fit. Doritos has acquired a virtual plot of land in Decentraland, which they have dubbed "Doritos Triangle Studios."
The Doritos Triangle Studios Experience is a virtual amusement park that features various games and attractions based on the popular snack food. You had to climb the top of the Doritos Triangle, to reach the triangle and unlock the various wearable that day. As you can see in the video I was able to accomplish this all three days and get their very unique wearables.

Firstly, let's talk about what digital fashion is. In the metaverse, fashion is not limited to physical clothing but instead can be any kind of wearable digital asset that can be displayed on a user's avatar. Digital fashion items can be anything from hats and jewelry to full outfits and costumes, and they are often bought and sold as NFTs (non-fungible tokens) on various blockchain platforms.
Doritos recognized the potential of digital fashion in the metaverse and decided to offer unique wearables to visitors of their virtual plot of land. The brand gave away a new digital fashion item every day of their three-day event, which visitors could claim by visiting their virtual booth and interacting with a vending machine.
The digital fashion items given away by Doritos were not your run-of-the-mill hats or accessories. Each wearable was unique and featured designs inspired by different flavors of Doritos, such as the "Fiery Habanero Headdress" and the "Cool Ranch Cape." The designs were creative, colorful, and definitely eye-catching, making them a hot commodity for visitors to the event.
The wearables given away by Doritos were also NFTs, meaning that they are unique, verifiable, and can be traded on blockchain platforms. This adds a level of exclusivity to the items, as they cannot be duplicated or replicated.
The response to Doritos' digital fashion giveaway was overwhelmingly positive, with many visitors praising the brand for their creativity and attention to detail. The unique designs of the wearables and the fact that they were NFTs made them highly desirable for collectors and fashion enthusiasts in the metaverse.
The virtual land is designed to be an immersive experience for visitors, featuring flashy graphics, exciting music, and interactive elements. The rides and attractions are all based on the different flavors of Doritos, such as Nacho Cheese, Spicy Nacho, and of course, Cool Ranch.
Visitors to the Doritos Cool Ranch Experience can also participate in various challenges and games that are centered around the brand's products. I was able to make some cool beats on the beatmaker, as well as listen to some Live Music in their virtual concert hall. We also had to run around their entire virtual plot of land to find mysterious objects that were really welly designed in 3D!
So, what does Doritos hope to achieve with their foray into the metaverse? According to the brand, their virtual plot of land in Decentraland is an opportunity to engage with their customers in a new and innovative way. The immersive experience of the Doritos Cool Ranch Experience is designed to create a memorable connection between the brand and its fans.
Additionally, Doritos is exploring the possibility of monetizing their virtual plot of land through in-game advertising and sponsorships. As Decentraland continues to grow and attract more users, brands like Doritos may find that the metaverse is a lucrative space for advertising and marketing.
In conclusion, the Doritos Cool Ranch Experience is a bold move for the snack food brand, and it will be interesting to see how it develops over time. As more brands enter the metaverse, it is clear that this virtual world is becoming an important space for marketing and advertising. If you're a fan of Doritos or simply curious about the metaverse, be sure to check out the brand's virtual plot of land in Decentraland.
