Step aside scratch-off lottery tickets. A bag of Cheetos might be a better bet for some quick cash. For one thing, there are plenty of wealthy idiots out there that are willing to spend tens of thousands of dollars on Cheetos that are shaped like things. Now, The Cheetos Museum is doling out thousands of dollars for the interesting shapes you find in bags of Flamin’ Hot or Cheesy Cheetos. [click to continue…]
Cheetos’ new Flamin’ Hot Chipotle Ranch flavor was supposed to hit store shelves in July based on information gleaned at the Sweets and Snacks Expo in Chicago this past May, but it appears that the plan has changed. Bags are appearing everywhere from 7-11 to Target, so there’s a good chance that it’s out there right now, waiting for you. [click to continue…]
I’m getting heartburn just looking at this.
The Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Pizza is the brainchild of California’s Ameci Pizza Kitchen, and it is not only topped with Cheetos, but also features crushed Cheetos baked into the cheese. Check out more pics and videos from Instagram below if you can handle it. We understand if it’s a bit much for a Monday morning after you gorged yourself at a Christmas party. [click to continue…]
Taco Bell unleashed another chip brand collaboration in the form of Cheetos Quesadillas, then inexplicably offered them exclusively in the Philippines, and only for a limited time. Fortunately, we have a recipe the rest of the world can use:
Step 1: Put Cheetos in a quesadilla.
For those of you who are in the Philippines, Taco Bell reports that the quesadillas can be had at Taco Bell Gateway, TriNoma, Alabang Town Center and Cyberpark Tower. There’s no word on how long they will be available, but as the social posts below illustrate, people are sharing their thoughts on its taste, which is apparently magnificent. [click to continue…]
Or is he eating them right?
Yes, this is a picture of Oscar Isaac eating Cheetos with chopsticks. He’s also doing it with a mustache – which feels right in this scenario.
Hilarious, but it gets better…

Armed with a donut mold and a dream of deliciousness, The Vulgar Chef recently pushed the cheese envelope by creating Cheetos Crusted Mac n’ Cheese Doughnuts.
The process began by cooking the mac & cheese and then pouring it into the mold. The mold was then placed in the freezer and allowed to cool for several hours. Next, the “donuts” are dunked into an egg wash and coated with crushed Cheetos before being fried for about a minute at a low temperature.
There doesn’t seem to be any word about the flavor, but if they taste as good as they look, they will be a threat to diets everywhere.
Frito-Lay recently posted this creepily realistic image of Chester Cheetah to announce the upcoming release of “Sweetos” – the latest addition to their Cheetos line of products. As the name implies, Sweetos will dispense with the signature cheese taste and instead provide the flavor of cinnamon and sugar in familiar puff form.
The move, which marks the brand’s first foray into sweetness territory in their 67 year history, is all part of an effort to appeal to consumers who want a sweet taste without resorting to overly sugary products, and it appears that additional flavors will be added to the line in the future. The company has also paid attention to those who are accustomed to the mounds of cheese dust that make up the Cheetos experience, and have promised “a similar playful experience when eating Sweetos”.
The product will hit shelves in late February, with 7 ounce bag of the cinnamon flavor setting you back $3.49.

Kids have the craziest ideas when it comes to food. The Buffalo News reports that a ten-year-old girl was hanging around the BreadHive bakery and eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, and she suggested putting the Cheetos on top of bagels. BreadHive’s Allison Ewing figured it was worth trying so they crushed a bag of the Cheetos, dipped bagels in them, and voila! Flamin’ Hot Cheetos bagels. I’d definitely try one.
I hope someone runs with the idea of junk food on bagels because I think Doritos bagels could be delicious.

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!
