Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Pepper Puffs Are The Hottest Flavor They’ve Ever Made

If you’re a lover of spicy snacks, then the scorching summer heat is not an excuse to ditch your favorite fiery treats. So, allow us to inform you that the new Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Pepper Puffs are officially out in stores now. Apparently, the brand is boldly marketing it as the “hottest ever product in the Frito-Lay portfolio in the United States.” Do you think you can handle the heat?

Cheetos’ Flamin’ Hot line is easily every spicy food lover’s go-to snack. So, whenever rumors about a new variant surface, expect that people will highly anticipate its official release in stores. Clearly, such was the case for this new sizzling, hot flavor. Apparently, people were already talking about it even way before it was in stores.

Snack sleuth @snacksfromaround was among the first to spill the beans about the new Flamin’ Hot variant back in February. According to her source, the snack was expected to come out in March. However, people haven’t spotted it on the shelves until just recently. The heads-up came from Instagram user @thejunkgoat who found the much-awaited treat at Schucks, a supermarket chain in the Midwest.

As with any other Cheetos snacks, this new Flamin’ Hot variant is also made with real cheese. What’s even more interesting is it features small, thick puffs in the shape of a pepper. Now that’s a pretty cool touch! Fair warning, though: these teeny bites are loaded with heat! Well, you know what they say, “small but terrible.”

Luckily, these spicy cheese-flavored snacks have also made their way into major retailers like Walmart and Circle K. So, you shouldn’t have a hard time snagging a pack or two. But before you do, be sure to check out online reviews first so you’ll know what you’re getting into. Apparently, many of them are claiming that this new flavor is way hotter than the XXTRA Flamin’ Hot variant.

According to @snacksfromaround, they were enough to make her “acid reflux burn right away.” Meanwhile, @i_need_a_snack_ recommended to “have some water or milk nearby,” as these snacks really do have a lasting effect! @snackgator also claimed that these pepper puffs “do not disappoint.”

We don’t know about you, but that’s definitely good news for us! So, if you think you can handle the heat, then head over to your local Walmart or Circle K to secure a pack, and let your taste buds decide!
