I love Cheetos. I’ve waxed poetic about them time and time and time again. It is, without a doubt, my all time favorite snack food. When I started seeing the commercials for the new GIANT Cheetos, I went on a search for them that envied my current search for Pepsi Throwback. Well, at least I found the GIANT Cheetos. Although, to be honest I should probably reserve the all-caps version of GIANT for when I find the GIANT Cheeto that Gizmodo was gifted with. Or does that quantify GIANT-ASS CHEETO? And is it weird that I still want to make way through that block of styrofoam-like corn substance?
Until that time, I’ll have to make do with silver dollar sized Cheetos instead. Guess what? They taste like Cheetos. Well, to be fair, they taste more like Cheetos Cheese Puffs, with just a little more initial biting needed.
What makes them worth purchasing? Well at 59 cents, they’re only 80 calories. Sure 50% of those calories come from fat, but for a Cheetos-holic like myself, that’s still better than going through an entire bag of Cheetos in one sitting. After the orange dust has settled, you still get your fix without the post-cheese guilt. Unless you buy two or three or possibly four of these packages because you feel the 5 Cheetos they provide you is merely a tease for a bigger bag. I’m happy to say I was not one of those people…this time.
I can’t say the GIANT-ASS CHEETO and it’s cheesy brethren will be so lucky if I find them.
