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.”


Cheetos’ new Flamin’ Hot Pepper Puffs are the hottest product that Frito-Lay has ever released in the US

@Cheetos flamin hot pepper puffs. I posted about these coming out back in March I believe and they finally started hitting shelves! They state that they are the hottest ever! Which I’m pretty sure they mean by the hottest Cheetos not the hottest chips ever lol. These were send to me by @thejunkgoat who was the first to find them so thank you, cause they still haven’t made it to my area. SWIPE to see the little pepper puff! These are actually shaped like a pepper and you can actually tell lol, they are SO cute ? they have the same texture as the flamin hot puffs but definitely ARE hotter. I eat spicy food and cover my food in hot sauce daily, and these are definitely the hottest Cheetos. Even hotter then the extra hot which I don’t find that hot lol. These definitely made my acid reflux burn right away lmao. So they’re doing their job ? these are so damn cute! Not @Cheetos can you please bring back the twist puffs! I used to eat those all the time before I even moved to the US and I miss them ?they also have been found @walmart . . .

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.”

It’s Review Time! ??? Everyone’s favorite cheetah Chester is back with his iconic company @cheetos and this time their here to set our taste buds on fire, in a good way of course! I present, Cheetos Flamin Hot Pepper Puffs! • • Now I am a fan of the Flamin’ Hot Cheeto Puffs so when I spotted these at my local @walmart I knew they would be DELICIOUS! A bag was only 3$ with tax and this isn’t a family size, but not a small bag either its a perfect size for the price, you’re def getting your moneys worth! Now the artwork on this bag is awesome; it has Chester eating a Pepper Puff thats literally on fire! Above him is the outline of a pepper with the Flamin Hot Pepper Puff logo inside of it and what’s really cute, is the holes of the P’s in Pepper are little peppers, how cute! And on the left side of the bag there’s a sign letting us know that these new Pepper Puffs are indeed THE HOTTEST EVER! Now the smell is nothing new and has the same Hot Cheeto smell that you get with every version of Flamin’ Hot that @cheetos puts out! Now for the look of the puff itself, it’s actually in the shape of a pepper, now thats a cool touch! Now the taste is extremely similar to the Regular Flamin’ Hot as well as the Exxxtra Flamin’ Hot and same as well in the intensity of heat that comes with eating these! But I must admit these do have a lasting effect with the heat that I noticed normal Flamin’ Hot Cheetos do not, so have some water or milk nearby! Overall these are an awesome new and refreshing addition to an already perfect lineup of chips! 8.5/10 ?

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!
