10. Cheetos Korean BBQ

Those in the know may be surprised that Cheetos Korean BBQ made it on to our list. Why? Well, a few online forums have bashed this flavor, saying it was revolting! What we say to those eaters is “hey – maybe the Cheetos Korean BBQ is not for you – it does not mean they are all that bad!” The Cheetos Korean BBQ are actually great because they are so different. They are kind of sweet and tangy while still having some spice flavor. They really won’t be what you are accustomed to, but maybe that is okay!? Maybe we need a little flare, a little shock and awe, a little bit of Cheetos adventure in our lives! We give the Cheetos Korean BBQ a thumbs up because of its weirdness. You will have to try them and see which side of the line you fall on; are these a yay or a nay for you? Also, you will have to establish what they taste like. What flavor profiles do you get on these Cheetos? Do they actually taste like Korean BBQ or more like soy sauce? Give it a go and let the world know. No harm in trying, right?

9. Cheetos Crunchy Wild White Cheddar

The Cheddar flavor on the Cheetos Crunchy Wild White Cheddar is perfect. You will be licking your fingers and wishing you could take the cheddar flavoring from the bag and put it on everything! What is really great about these Cheetos is that they are not super duper different. They are not quite regular Crunchy Cheetos and they are not super spicy or ranch-like. They have found a spot for themselves that is close to original and yet not very different. The Cheetos Crunchy Wild White Cheddar are a fan favorite for a reason and we could not not put them on our list. It is a given that they would be here because they are just so good. If we personified these Cheetos they would be friendly, constant, and silent. They wouldn’t get a lot of recognition but you wouldn’t go anywhere without them. They are like the BFF you never realize you have because they are such a huge part your life. Or like a next-door neighbor who is so awesome they will shovel the snow off your driveway if you aren’t home or lend you an egg if you are baking. Well, that is what these Cheetos are like. They are so wonderful. Check them out and take a moment to recognize all the unassuming constants you could not live without.

Dieters appreciate the 100 Calorie Mini Bites because they are proportioned to perfection and easy to grab and go. So when you are on the run and you need a little snack to replenish your taste buds give these diet Cheetos a try. You may feel a little naughty, like, “Woah, I am having Cheetos!

If you haven’t had these yet you really need to. They are a great dessert snack! Especially if you love any kind of chips or bagged treat for that reason but want something sweet instead of the traditional salty flavors. And let’s be real, Sweetos is a great name for a sugary Cheeto counterpart! Now some reviews suggest these Cheetos don’t have enough flavor. You be the judge of that.

6. Giant Cheetos

Doesn’t everyone say bigger is better? Bigger is awesome? You’ve probably had bite-sized mini Cheetos but have you ever seen any this size? The Giant Cheetos certainly are impressive, both in size and in flavor. They are like Puffs but bigger and more circular. Eating one piece in one bite may even prove to be a bit of an ordeal. Why you ask? Well, because they are flipping big that is why! They are big enough for us all to contemplate; will this thing fit in my mouth? And with huge Cheetos comes a lot of food. The Giant Cheetos are filling! You can eat a bag and be good to go. We highly recommend bringing these on road trips so you won’t need to stop again and again for snacks. Giant Cheetos really deserve some praise. So go get a bag, skip dinner, you won’t need a full meal, you have a bag of Giant Cheetos!

5. Cheetos Stars Summertime Ranch

Oh. My. Gosh! These Cheetos are shaped like STARS! Stars!!! How fun and exciting! Whether you are stargazing on summer evenings or not you are still able to have some stellar stars in your life thanks to the Cheetos Stars Summertime Ranch. They have a light crunch and actually taste more ranch than cheese. That being said they rule. The ranch flavor is just right. These Cheetos are different enough to make you feel like you are consuming a totally different product. Yet they have a familiar essence that is just right. Cheetos Stars Summertime Ranch really do make you feel like you are on a summer vacation and we can attribute that to the name of the snack and frankly the shape of the snack. The star shape really does make these Cheetos standout. They are flatter making them more chip like than other Cheetos, so there is a nice distribution of flavor on the tongue. And, as an added bonus, they are gluten free and have no sugar added! That is pretty dope!

4. Cheetos Mighty Zingers Ragin’ Cajun & Tangy Ranch Dragon Edition

These Cheetos are in fact pretty darn hot! They will amaze your taste buds and even though you may start sweating when you eat these you know it will be worth it. These are so hot that you will literally blow fire out of your mouth like a dragon. Like Kalisi’s dragons from Game of Thrones. Then, you will grow green scales and fly around and live perched on top of a castle or in a cave or something.

All you need is a bag of Cheetos Mighty Zingers Ragin’ Cajun & Tangy Dragon Edition to get your fire raging!

3. Cheetos Paws

Cheetos Paws are obviously shaped like paws and that is pretty cute, right? They come in different varieties and flavors and they have a crunch that is just right. Kind of like what Goldilocks eventually finds in her searches… something that is juuuuust right. Because the paws have holes in them they are way less filling than some of the other Cheetos variations out there. Most of us could easily eat a bag and be like, wait, that’s it? Cheetos Paws go by in a flash. So eating a whole bag may not be just right for you. The crunch may be spot on but the quantity may lack. So, knowing this we suggest you buy two bags just in case. You want to be sure you hit your Goldilocks satisfaction rate! Goldilocks never settled and neither should you! Go in looking for perfection and you shall find it!

1. Cheetos Puffs

For most of us having a bag of Cheetos Puffs is like traveling in time. Suddenly you are at a best friend’s seventh birthday. Obviously you can’t help yourself from dipping your little fingers into the big bowl of Cheetos Puffs. Or maybe it is your kid’s party and you are eating the Puffs by the handful from the bag and not refilling the bowls for the kids. More for yourself, eh? Whatever the memory is, and there certain is a memory, Cheetos Puffs will bring you back to a good old time in your life. That is why they are so great. They are synonymous with joy and laughter and freedom. When you eat even just one Puff you go through some kind of sense-memory orgasm, no? If none of this is ringing true to you then maybe you were not alive for the 90’s and early 2000’s or maybe you just never got invited the birthday parties… how sad. It is never too late to create new Cheetos Puffs memories. Go on and buy a few bags and you will see how dangerously cheesy and magnificent they really are.
