Kelly's stance on Doritos divided her guests and audience

"It's weird, but I don't like the chip. I don't like how the chip tastes, but I love the cheese, I don't know," to which Melissa responded by imitating her motion of licking each chip and separating it.

Kelly took it to an even further extreme, explaining: "I literally have a separate bag [for the chips]," which had her guests and audience members doubling down with laughter.

Her guests had mixed opinions on her take

Many others simply responded with laughing emojis, and a few specified that they repeated Kelly's specific tactic with ranch-flavored Doritos, creating a club of sorts.
