Most days cannot even begin to get started before a nice hot cup of coffee. But as soon as you’re done sippin’, your next thought is probably: “is it time for my afternoon snack of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos?” God was listening, and so He gave life to the next breakfast creation that will blow your mind:

No, not that kind! A real bagel perfected by legit bakers.

The Bagel Nook, located in New Jersey, who’s famous for creating crazy bagel recipes that include Oreos and Doritos, has spawned this latest breakfast craze.


But we’re not exactly sure who came up with his nutty but genius idea because we also found a Flamin’ Hot Cheetos bagel at the BreadHive in Upstate New York.


In 2014, a 10-year-old little girl gave the idea of a Hot Cheetos bagel when she was hanging out with the BreadHive bakers while eating our favorite snack.

“She was supervising, and asking questions, and eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos,” BreadHive’s Allison Ewing told the Buffalo News. “She said, ‘You should put these on a bagel.'”

This crazy treat is all thanks to this little kid? Amazing.


So… How will you have your Flamin’ Hot Cheetos bagel? Con huevos y bacon or without?

Cheetos Made Their Official Couture Debut At New York Fashion Week And It’ll Make You So Thirsty

Cheetos Made Their Official Couture Debut At New York Fashion Week And It’ll Make You So Thirsty

New York Fashion Week is coming in hot! On Thursday Cheetos’ held their first-ever runway show inspired by the iconic snack Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Rapper Saweetie performed on the Haus of Flamin’ Haute runway. Flamin’ Hot Cheetos have become something of a cultural phenomenon after being cited as the snack food darling of the Latinx and hip hop community. 

The collection incorporates the branded iconography with of-the-moment street style. The Haus of Flamin’ Haute guests sipped on Flamin’ Hot Sunrise cocktails, sushi rolls sprinkled with Cheetos, and a beauty bar with Cheeto manicures. 

Consider throwing on a Cheetos T-shirt to honor your Latinx heritage. Flamin’ Hot Cheetos were invented by Mexican American Richard Montañez, a former custodial worker at a Frito-Lay plant. He created the unique flavor combination decades ago, and his story will be told in the Eva Longoria directed-biopic Flamin Hot. 

A song of Icy and Fire. 

“Being a childhood fan of the whole brand — Flamin’ Hots, puffs, regular Cheetos, all of them — it was just super exciting to be asked to do this,” said Saweetie told the Hollywood Reporter. “Pulling up today and seeing Cheetos’ vision come to life was amazing. Also, I was looking forward to seeing the clothes and showing off my own dope look.”

Saweetie rose to fame by posting short raps on her Instagram account in 2016, where she now has 3.5 million followers. The 26-year-old’s singles “Icy Grl,” and “My Type,” have gone viral, eventually making it into Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart. She released her debut album High Maintenance in 2018. 

“My first fashion week, which was not too long ago, I was sneaking into events and shows,” she said. “Now, I’m being asked to perform, which is really exciting. This is the first fashion week where I feel like I’ve finally got the hang of things and tonight is the perfect way to kick it off.”  

A Flamin’ Hot evening.

Cheetos’ Haus of Flamin’ Haute wasn’t just a runway show, so much as it was an installation and celebration of the snack food. Renowned costume designer Ami Goodheart and her collaborators chose to elevate the theme. The highlights included a punchy, crimson red tulle gown by J. Bolin, an orange jumpsuit from Nava Rose, and a Goodheart-designed headpiece made of Cheetos wrappers combined with a Cheeto-lined cape. 

Orange is the new black.

While the Haus of Flamin’ Haute may not be accessible to all, fans of the brand should know Cheetos and Forever 21 have recently launched a collection together.  The collaboration features branded leggings, cropped tops, bodycon dresses, socks, and bicycle shorts.

A word from Chester Cheetah.

It is no surprise that the brand is strong, considering Flamin’ Hots have been referenced in hip hop culture for years now. In 2012, Y.N.RichKids, a children’s rap crew, released the viral hit “Hot Cheetos & Takis.” Last year, Cardi clowned her husband Offset on Instagram for putting Flamin’ Hot Cheetos in his turkey sandwich. Yung Miami from City Girls detailed her snacking habits to Hot New Hip Hop, which included Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, sugar straws, and gummies. 

Cheetos is perfectly aware of their place in hip hop history. This winter Chester Cheetah dropped a Doritos diss track. “Next time you try to take what I got. Remember I’m flamin’ hot, and you’re flamin’ not,” Chester Cheetah raps. I didn’t know the chip game had so many beefs. I am perched for the drama!

How a Latinx saved Frito-Lay. 

Mexican-American Richard Montañez began working at a Frito-Lay plant in Rancho Cucamonga. It was the late ’80s and he was making $4 an hour as a custodian. At 18 years old he was unable to read and write. Following the advice of his grandfather, Montañez took pride in his job, however, overlooked it would be, he wanted to be the best. 

“Every time someone walked into a room, it would smell fresh,” he told The Hustle. “I realized there’s no such thing as ‘just a janitor’ when you believe you’re going to be the best.”

Ambitious and hardworking, Montañez made himself seen through his work. After a decade, he began shadowing superiors. While watching a salesman restock inventory, he had an epiphany: company sales were down, but there were no products made for Latinxs. 

I saw our products on the shelves and they were all plain: Lay’s, Fritos, Ruffles,” he recalls. “And right next to these chips happened to be a shelf of Mexican spices… nothing spicy or hot.”

Eventually, Montañez, through a combination of naivety and fearlessness, snagged a meeting with the CEO. They were sold on his new flavor. Today he is Vice President of multicultural sales for PespiCo America (the company that owns Frito-Lay). Latinxs don’t have fairy tales, we have hard work and our wits.

We Can Tell You What Your Abuela Makes You For Breakfast Based On Her Zodiac Sign

Abuelas are universally loved by all Latinos lucky enough to grow up with them. Virtually all of them make the most delicious food we’ve ever tasted. They all kiss you on the cheek and call you gordita as you walk in the door, and if you try and reject your second helping of food, they call you flaquita and give you more. Of course, our abuelas offer so much more than just food. They likely left their generations-long home country to give their descendants a different start in life. They’re trailblazers and all so unique.

Pero, like, when it comes to desayuno, one thing is certain: they will cook up a feast. Here’s how the stars have influenced their breakfast of choice. See if we guessed right.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

@LCHurtado / Twitter

There’s no recipe for this one. It’s just a straight mixto de cositas leftover and somehow, your Abuela makes it work. It’s the talent of the Aries to go with the flow and make casamiento out of nothing (air).

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

@ccsham_34 / Twitter

Mama, you’re having whatever it is your abuelita has had for breakfast every day for the last half century. Taurus’ abuelas are all about security and comfort, and they make that feeling contagious with Huevos Rancheros. 

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

@thechef414 / Instagram

We bet your abuela is either a genius in the kitchen or just plain wrong. Gemini’s are known for being on the pulse of trends and creative. Your abuela probably thinks she invented the Jibarito. 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

@solopacolombianos / Instagram

Cancers are super nostalgic and probably have the deepest emotional connection to food out of any of the other signs in the zodiac. Your abuela makes you what her abuela made her for breakfast, and she tells you that every single time. ❤️The answer to this depends on your abuela’s nationality, but we’re going to guess some kind of yucca (or plantain) with frijoles and leftover pegao. Maybe an egg if you’re lucky.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

@fer_sefit / Instagram

Leos make for very fun, generous abuelas. We bet your abuela actually asks you what you want for breakfast, and will actually make you pancakes if you ask. Claro, she’s using Bisquick [beez-kwhick], and adding diced mangos, but you love her for it.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

@heartmyplate808 / Instagram

Our reliable Virgo abuelas love a neat egg-in-the-hole. Is there any other name for it? It’s the best way to use stale bread while making a super satisfying breakfast cada vez.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

@orlandoneurocoach / Instagram

Resourceful Nana’s are going to make you the most simple and pure breakfasts of all time: Huevo con Arroz Blanca. It’s the cheapest meal to make using anoche’s leftover rice and a runny egg, and it satisfies

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

@lowcarberista / Instagram

Scorpio abuelas are so meta, they would make their nenas an egg-in-the-hole jamón style. At the very least, she’s making these for her grandsons because they’re growing boys. Us granddaughters might be stuck with the buttery bread version and it’s patriachy’s loss.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

@dominicanfts2.0 / Instagram

Sagittarius abuelas are a rarity because the sign breeds folks who are here for a good time, not a long time. Your abuela has stories and she’s going to tell you every single one of them as she mashes together some mangú.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

@kiwilimon / Instagram

Capricorn abuelas want to adore you with a masterpiece of thrifty ingredients made rico with love and care. Molletes: it’s what’s for breakfast. 🤤

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

@LauraNeuzeth / Twitter

Your Aquarius abuela is in her most evolved state when she feels she’s tapped into the world around her. She might be trying to make substitute classic mantequilla with a non-dairy butter, or try out soyrizo. We’re not mad about it.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

@thiagomonrroy / Twitter

Honey, there’s no telling what your Pisces abuela is going to do this morning. She might just skip breakfast to go tend to her garden, or meet with her new social club. You’re taking her out para desayunar. 😂
