If ever there was a food mash-up worthy of a gamer it’s Mountain Dew flavored Cheetos. You won’t be surprised to know they’re being sold in Japan, but this is one that you can actually get shipped to the US and elsewhere through some specialty retailers. They’re not a true Cheeto since there’s no cheese, but more of a lemon-lime flavored corn snack. They sound both disgusting and amazing. I may have to buy a package.

Cream stew is apparently a thing in Japan. It’s usually made with blocks of “mix” (basically the stock and ingredients compressed into cubes) and the results are supposedly pretty tasty.
Frito-Lay Japan is looking to get into the whole cream stew-craze with their newest Cheetos snack. Uh… yeah. Good thinking on that one, Frito-Lay.
According to the company, these new Cheetos combine the sweetness of corn with the classic rich flavor of cream stew. Which doesn’t sound half bad really.
The new snack is set to be released on December 2nd of this year, and will be sold until next March. If you’re a cream stew fan that lives in Japan, it might be a good idea to start stockpiling the stuff!
Love Cheetos? Then you’ll dig these socks. They look so delicious… er, I mean very cool!

Those wacky Japanese foodies have come up with yet another flavor combination that makes me want to book a flight for Japan. This time it’s Pepsi-flavored Cheetos. Just think how convenient it would be to get your Pepsi fix and your junk food fix in one bite!
According to The Impulsive Buy, the Cheetos had the aroma of flat soda and cinnamon donuts with an acidic, citrusy taste that overpowered the cola flavor. So not quite a home run but, apparently, the Cheetos actually fizz a bit like actual soda. That’s what we call attention to detail.

96.5 Brisbane was looking for a way to make Cheeto consumption easier, so they decided to modify an industrial air blower so they would be blown directly at the eater’s face. Was their goal achieved? …Hell no. But the attempt did make for a pretty funny video.
Check it out after the jump.
