10 Cheesy Cheetos Facts That You Never Knew

10 Cheesy Cheetos Facts That You Never Knew


There are plenty of salty snacks that get
lost in the shuffle, but Cheetos are a Cheesy treat that has long been a favorite with snackers
around the world. You are likely familiar with both the puffy and crunchy varieties
of Cheetos, but there’s a lot more to learn. So let’s turn those fingers orange with 10
cheesy Cheetos facts that you never knew. Making Cheetos ’till the Cows Come Home Like most modern corporations, Frito-Lay,
the folks who make many of our favorite snacks like Doritos, Fritos and Cheetos, keep track
of a lot of information about their snacks. Of course they keep track of basic things
like sales figures, but many of these statistics they collect concern the logistics behind
the production of the snacks many of us enjoy. For instance, the company reports that it
uses as many as 11 million gallons of milk a year to produce this savory snack. This
massive amount of cows milk is enough to make about 10 million pounds of cheddar cheese.
But this particular supply of cheese isn’t destined for your local supermarket because
Frito-Lay has other plans for it. This tasty cheese is used to make the savory, cheesy
powder that gives Cheetos their distinctively sharp, cheese taste that has made this snack
so popular around the world. All of this Cheetos production puts a lot of pressure on the cows
because this amount of production would require 5,000 cows to each produce an average of 2,200
gallons of milk. The next time you find yourself licking the cheesy powder from your fingers
you might want to take a moment to acknowledge the essential contribution of those thousands
of cows that made your bag of Cheetos possible! The Cheetos Colorz Caper Anyone familiar with Cheetos snacks knows
that the powdery cheese coating turns your fingers orange. In the early 2000’s Frito-Lay
decided to try a new twist on this by developing a line of Cheetos that would turn your tongue,
not orange, but either blue or green. These specially made Cheetos were called Cheetos
Mystery Colorz. Customers responded with mixed feelings about these unique varieties. Some
snackers complained that tiny blue and green specs on these Mystery Colorz reminded them
too much of mold. Clearly, this was not the kind of reaction the makers of Cheetos were
hoping for when they dreamed these up. Snackers didn’t know whether their tongues would turn
blue or green and this element of surprise helped to boost curiosity about these products.
However, the novelty soon wore thin and these Mystery Colorz Cheetos were soon discontinued
with seemingly little opposition from customers who weren’t as enamored of their stained tongues
as Frito-Lay hoped. This idea likely failed because it was too gimmicky. Coloring people’s
tongues has nothing to do with flavor and Cheetos lovers crave distinct flavors – not
colors. This was one idea from Frito-Lay probably best left on the drawing board. A Career In Cheetos So you say you love Cheetos more than anything.
How does this sound for a dream job? The Frito-Lay production facilities spread around the world
struggle to keep the taste and quality of their products consistently good. One way
they do this is to assign employees to periodically taste the Cheetos coming off the assembly
lines. These fresh samples are compared to samples sent from Frito-Lay headquarters.
First the chemical composition of the fresh Cheetos are tested to make sure everything
is all right with the recipe. But then comes the fun part. A batch of Cheetos snacks must
be tasted about every four hours by a group of lucky employees who must really like Cheetos.
These particular employees are referred to as a quality control panel, but this really
just sounds like a group of lucky Cheetos lovers who get to binge on snacks several
times a day. Can there be too much of a good thing? Even if you truly love these cheesy
snacks, would actually having this kind of job ruin these snacks for you? It would probably
be worth a try to find out. Who wouldn’t want to get paid to eat one of their favorite snacks? It’s A Small Cheetos World The cheesy goodness of Cheetos snacks aren’t
just loved in America, they are loved around the world by those who crave a wide variety
of flavors. Frito-Lay can’t satisfy all this international demand just with production
facilities located in the U.S. In fact, the snack company has facilities spread around
the world in 22 different countries as diverse as Poland, Pakistan and Cyprus. Some of these
facilities produce Cheetos snacks you would be familiar with, but many of them make more
exotic flavors that appeal to specific local tastes. For example, snackers in Japan are
crazy about Cheetos covered with strawberry icing and another variety that tastes like
Pepsi Cola. These cola flavored Cheetos probably go well with a can of Pepsi. Apparently, Chinese
snackers prefer Cheetos that taste like steak and Eastern Europeans like peanut butter flavored
Cheetos. There is something about the peanut butter flavored Cheetos that just sounds wrong.
Cheetos lovers in Pakistan crave a variety called Ocean Safari. That title doesn’t
sound too appetizing, but who knows. There are probably plenty of Cheetos lovers around
the world who think the honey barbecue flavor is a strange flavor for this cheesy snack.
When you include all of these regional favorites, the Frito-Lay company produces a total of
50 different flavors of Cheetos to satisfy all of its international customers. Cheetos
may have started as an American snack, but its popularity has truly grown to world wide
proportions to satisfy a planet full of hungry snackers. Cleaning Up With Flamin’ Hot Cheetos This story deserves to be filed under American
Dream: fulfilled. Richard Montanez was working as a janitor, but he had bigger ideas in mind.
He loved to eat Cheetos, but they weren’t spicy enough for his tastes so he quietly
went to work to change this. After some research and experimentation, and more than a little
taste-testing, he came up with a hot and spicy version of his beloved Cheetos snacks. What
happened next is the stuff of feel good Hollywood movies. Mr. Montanez was able to convince
the snack company to give him a meeting with the CEO to discuss his snack invention. He
went to the fateful meeting well prepared with samples and marketing research and succeeded
in dazzling the Cheetos people with his new spicy flavor. Montanez was rewarded with an
impressive executive vice president position and we were rewarded with the delightful spiciness
of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. It is unclear whether Mr. Montanez came up with the catchy name
for his new product, but he certainly hit the bull’s eye with his hot take on a cheesy
classic. Flamin’ Hot Cheetos has become one of Frito-Lay’s most successful snacks, so
here’s to Mr. Montanez and his inspiring story. Maybe there are more people out there with
the next great Cheetos flavor idea waiting to make us all happy. Cheetos For Dinner How much do you love Cheetos? Do you love
this snack enough to scramble to make reservations for a pop-up restaurant based on Cheetos recipes?
In 2017, thousands of New Yorkers did exactly this so they could be one of the lucky ones
to get a taste of these cheesy-snack-infused dishes. Extra points if you guessed that the
name of the trendy restaurant was called The Spotted Cheetah after the Cheetos mascot himself,
Chester Cheetah. This New York eatery specialized in everything Cheetos including Cheetos meatballs,
mac & cheese with Cheetos, on top and even tacos with Cheetos inside. The menu also offered
a variety of salads and sandwiches with you guessed it – Cheetos! If you were lucky enough
to get a table, you had to bring a generous appetite and a big affection for all things
cheese and Cheetos. This pop-up restaurant had a good, if a very short, run of three
days, in New York City. This unique eatery certainly left fans of the cheesy snack wanting
more, but like all good things, it had to come to and end before its time. However,
like some of the discontinued flavors that were returned to the store shelves, perhaps
The Spotted Cheetah will be given another chance. This could happen in New York again
or perhaps another city hungry for the addictively cheesy taste of Cheetos. The Gorilla Cheetos You’ve probably heard about someone seeing
the face of Jesus in a home-made tortilla or in a bag of potato chips, but have you
heard the one about the Cheetos that looked like Harambe? Harambe was a 17-year-old western
lowland gorilla who made the news in 2016 when he was unfortunately killed at a Cincinnati
zoo when a kid fell into the gorilla enclosure. Harambe then made it back into the news when
a Cheetos lover reached into a bag of the Flamin’ Hot variety for another handful. The
man’s hand came out with a unique looking Cheeto. The young man immediately noticed
a resemblance to the recently deceased gorilla and recognized that there might be money to
be made with this unique piece of food. This particular Cheeto in question was put up for
auction on eBay with the following listing: “I opened up a bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and
as soon as I looked inside I came across this unique Cheetos that looks like Harambe the
gorilla,” The bidding started low at around $11.99, but soared as high as Ninety Nine
Thousand Dollars before being sold. It’s not clear what the new owner of the most expensive
Cheeto in history did with it. Do you think he ate it or is sitting somewhere under glass? Cheetos Strong In the early 1930’s the founder of the Frito
Company came up with a new way to make powdered cheese that would alter the course of snack
food history. Mr. C.E Doolin used a dairy preservative technique that had been studied
by the U.S. military to allow him to use real milk in foods with a decent shelf life. The
military had been developing ways to extend the shelf life of a wide variety of foods
to better support the nutritional needs, as well as the taste buds, of troops spending
extended periods out in the field. The troops usually didn’t have access to refrigeration
for extended periods of time so these new techniques promised to be game changers. The
U.S. military eventually perfected a process for dehydrating cheese to extend its shelf
life. Mr. Doolin adopted this technique in the production of his famous line of snacks.
This innovative technique allowed him to use real cheese in the recipe for his tasty snacks
that have become favorites around the world. Without this research, Mr. Doolin’s snacks
would have, like other snacks of the time, had to rely only on artificial cheese products
for flavoring. It’s hard to imagine Cheetos snacks becoming an international sensation
if they had to rely on artificial chemicals for their cheesy flavor. You might want to
salute the U.S. military for its contribution to snack history the next time you enjoy a
cheesy bag of Cheetos. Gone But Not Forgotten Most snackers are quite familiar with the
classic cheddar cheese flavor associated with Cheetos, but over the years there have been
a lot of other flavors introduced. Some of them have been very successful such as Flamin’
Hot Cheetos and others not so much. Perhaps one of the more successful discontinued flavors
was called Cheesy Pizza Puffs. The name is rather self explanatory and they were sold
from 2001 to 2005. Fans can always hope the flavor makes a return at some point. Some
snackers aren’t willing to rely on hope and have taken matters into their own hands and
launched social media campaigns to lobby for the return of their favorite discontinued
flavor. Fans of the X’s and O’s variety are waiting to see if their efforts to bring back
this particular variety will pay off for them. In the meantime have they resorted to playing
tic tac toe on their tablets? Regardless it seems that so far not enough Cheetos lovers
care about playing tic tac toe with these snacks, so this unique variety is most likely
destined to remain missing in action. Introduced in 2011, Cheetos Honey Barbecue Puffs found
a bit of a following with its robust sweet and tangy flavor. However, the small following
wasn’t enough and they were discontinued after a short run. A honey barbecue flavor sounds
like an odd choice for a cheese puff and this probably explains its short shelf life. This
one would probably worked better as a potato chip. Because some of the discontinued flavors
developed fairly strong followings, they are gone, but they are certainly not forgotten. Hungry for more? Just tap on that screen for
