Cheddar Jalapeno Cheetos

Holy sweet hell.  Human evolution and the science of man have finally created the perfect snack food.  All other companies can stop.  There is no need to continue.  When we die, we will be greeted in whatever afterlife you believe in with a comfortable robe, therapeutic slippers and a self-refilling bowl of the new Cheddar Jalapeno Cheetos.

I love Cheetos.  I make no excuses for the fact that if you leave a bag of them in front of me, it’s the equivalent of saying goodbye to them.  You won’t see them again.  You can visit their dust.  It’ll be on my fingers.  As I’ve previously written, I’m also addicted to Jalapeno flavored potato chips.  Bringing the two of these flavors together is just cruel, unusual, and delicious.

Originally weary of such an idea, I picked up the chips a couple weeks ago.  I’m no fan of the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos (or Hot Fries, or any other artificially flavored “hot” chip), so this seemed like another bad idea.  But when I bit into the first few nuggety crunch sticks, I was completely won over.  Unlike the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, the Cheetos flavor is still distinctly there.  There is only a mild Jalapeno flavor that blends so very well with the cheddar that it should be illegal.

I don’t know if these are a limited edition, or a permanent addition to the Cheetos’ brand, but I can only hope that these will find themselves sitting comfortably in the snack food aisle with their cheesy brethren for years to come.

    i interviewed for a job at a windfarm in northern montana and at the end of the interview they asked me if i had any questions. i said “do you have any jalapeno cheetos, cause i really love jalapeno cheetos”. i got the job.

    These are so good that we have to buy two bags just so that I can actually get some. I knew I was in trouble when my husband tried them and said they were good. The next day, the whole bag was gone before I even had a chance to have one. We now have “his” and “hers” bags. I polished off my bag for breakfast this morning. Doesn’t get better than that!

    I love these!! and I too, HATE the flaming hot cheetos because there is not taste, just hotness. But I will have to start a protest if these are limited edition. It is sad, but true. They are my favoirte snack, and only 1 store in my neighborhood carries them.

    • TwobitMe says:

      I think we can safely say these are part of the permanent collection. They’ve been at my local Walgreens for over a year now, which is more than I can say for all the other limited editions that I’ve seen come and go.

    I’m also from Toledo Ohio and they are only at my works vending machine wich I clean out as well. I’m trying to run into the lady who stocks the vending Machine I’m gonna have her bring me a case of them.

  9. Timothy says:

    Yeah, they’re that good. Nobody’s gonna’ top ethan’s summation of “if there was a way to fuck a cheeto”, so forget about it and just go “get some”!

  10. linsey85 says:

    In agreement with all of you. These things are TOTALLY AMAZING. I’ve never liked “spicy” or “hot” snack foods before, so I was reluctant to try them. But, my friend convinced me, and I am so glad I did. I am completely addicted and not ashamed to say so.

    I, too, cannot find a large bag here in Oklahoma; only the medium sized. (Which, I can easily polish off quicker than I’d like to admit.)

    I sincerely hope that they’ll be around for a long time…and in a bigger bag!

  11. Phil says:

    I found a medium size bag at Wal-Mart today in Fleming Island, FL (32003) near Orange Park.

    These things are AMAZING!!

    I hope they go into full production!


  12. juan ramirez says:

  13. terry says:

    I finally found some of these in a big bag, previously I have only seen them in gas stations in a small bag. I bought 3 of them. Anyone in Tampa, FL craving them, they sell them at Sweet Bay on Gunn Hwy and Casey Road near Plantation

  14. ethan says:

    and when i finish a bag i dont crumple up the bag (its disrespectfull to the cheetos, and bob your a dumb ass they ARE better than sliced bread. and nicole how old are you, im 16

  15. ethan says:

    if there was a way to fuck a cheeto, i would

  16. ethan says:

    i love them i washed out a bag and put it in my room because it had the bigest F’n cheeto i ever seen.

  17. nicole says:

    Alright, so here’s the deal with these little morsels of gloriousness. I am a big health nut, but I am a huge sucker for Cheddar Jalapeño Cheetos. I’ve never really been one for hording snack food, but holy cow these things might be as good as sliced bread. There is just something about them that is purely lacking in other snacks (maybe they’re infused with crack, who knows?) I just hope they find their way to the bulk section of my local grocery store soon…actually on second thought…that could be bad, very bad (LOL).

  19. Ben says:

    These are absolutly the best snack food I have ever had! I have always loved Cheetos especially the Paws and the Checkerboards, but these babies are hands down the best so far. The only bad thing is that I have only been able to find them in the vending machine at my work. Every time that I go to a grocery store I check to see if they are there only to be let down. I am hoping that someday soon I will be able to find these on the shelves, but until then there is always the vending machine….which I just cleaned out 🙂

  20. stephanie says:

    I too love these new cheetos, but in my area(central Florida) they seem to have disappeared after only a few short weeks and contacting Frito Lay elicits no response.

  21. Brett says:

    You read my mind. (I am devouring a bag right now!) I feel the exact same way about these little pieces of Heaven. I have gone so far as to sneak these (unsuspectingly) into the grocery cart my wife guards with her budget savvy eyes.
