Snack #174- Cheetos XXTRA Flamin’ Hot Crunchy Cheese Flavored Snacks

Cheetos XXTRA Flamin’ Hot Crunchy Cheese Flavored Snacks

It’s been a while since we had a real, honest, spicy snack but I am pleased to report that these “twice as hot” Flamin’ Hot Cheetos are definitely hot!  The Hot Chicks rated the original Flamin’ Hot Cheetos a 6.5/10 and said there was ‘hot hot heat’ building with these and the Xxtra hot version only magnifies that feature.  The initial flavor is vinegary and standard Cheeto but it doesn’t take long for the tongue and throat burn to start and they are the kind of hot snack that makes you open your mouth and take deep breaths to cut through the heat.  And the heat lasts pretty long  The cheese flavor is pretty much completely overpowered by the heat and the main enjoyment from these is found more in the crunch and the heat than the flavor.  But that’s probably the point!

Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 8.5/10
Bottom Line: Hottest Cheetos on the market.
