1. He has very good taste in snacks.

2. Eating Hot Cheetos with chopsticks is very smart.

3. I guess Oscar Isaac is probably a genius.

4. Our kids would be hot…and also geniuses.

5. We will name all our children “Baybbi Cheeto Isaac.”

6. He’s one of very few guys who looks good clean-shaven, bearded and mustached.

7. I literally just learned that “mustached” is a real word.

8. I guess I’m a genius, too.

9. Who took this photo? 

10. A ghost? Probably a ghost.

11. He must have a cold in this photo because I spy Tylenol Cold.

12. Tylenol Cold + Hot Cheetos will get you over a cold fast, tbh.

13. Again: GENIUS.

14. But I don’t see any tissues around.

15. Oh god, I hope he doesn’t use his sleeves to blow his nose.

16. That’d be gross.

17. Also, he has Alka-Seltzer there.

18. Maybe he can’t eat too many Hot Cheetos.

19 .I want Hot Cheetos.

20. I want us to eat Hot Cheetos, together. But he can’t. Not too many. Not as many as I want.

21. That’s sad. I’m sad now.

22. Took another look at the photo. Ok, now I’m happy again.

23. Thank you, Oscar Isaac.

Cheetos Released The Official Name For The Cheesy Dust Left On Your Fingers And Some People Seriously Hate It

Cheetos Released The Official Name For The Cheesy Dust Left On Your Fingers And Some People Seriously Hate It

Frito-Lay has declared the cheesy residue left on your fingertips after eating Cheetos is called “cheetle.” Don Cheadle might be feeling some type of way right now. The press release has caused some confusion on social media with many Twitter users refusing to accept that this is the correct terminology and questioning its origins.  

To blow matters perhaps even more out of proportion, actor Ed Helms claims a comedian came up with the word “cheedle” in the 1980s. Some users even pointed out that the term was added to Urban Dictionary in 2005. 

Frito-Lay declares Cheetos dust “Cheetle” in official press release.

“We’ve seen the way Cheetos lovers don their red- and orange-dusted fingers like a badge of honor, and we’re always looking for ways to help them step up their snacking game,” Brandi Ray, senior director of marketing, Frito-Lay North America said in a press release. “The only way to truly take popcorn to the next level is to add the iconic Cheetle, the cheesy dust that will entice Cheetos fans to snack on this popcorn all year long.”

The move to bring Cheetle into the popular lexicon comes as Frito-Lay announces new Cheetos popcorn. The snack is popcorn with Cheetle as a topping in two flavors including Cheddar and Flamin’ Hot. 

“Snacking on Cheetos has become a special experience for many fans, including the experience of having the iconic cheese dust left on your fingers,” Rachel Ferdinando, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of Frito-Lay North America, told TODAY. “We (Frito-Lay executives) have long called that red and orange cheese dust ‘Cheetle,’ but it became clear from our fans the special interest they had, so we knew it was time to share our beloved name for this magic ingredient.”

Where did the term “Cheetle” come from? What is the truth? 

Ferdinando claims that Frito-Lay trademarked the term in 2005. An earlier form of the word was spelled “cheedle.” A 2005 entry in Urban Dictionary defines cheetle as, “the orange, powdery residue left on your fingers after eating Cheetos.” Perhaps, a Frito-Lay employee submitted it? 

“Frito-Lay officially trademarked ‘Cheetle’ in 2005, but the company hasn’t used (it) externally in much capacity until now and haven’t told consumers about it,” Ferdinando said. 

However, the Hangover actor Ed Helms believes the term was invented by Saturday Night Live alumni Rich Hall, who coined “cheedle” in his book sniglets

“An earlier form of Cheetle, spelled cheedle, was found to be one of the sniglets (fun coinages) of comedian Rich Hall in the 1980s, which he defined as ‘the residue left on one’s fingertips after consuming a bag of Cheetos.’ The first known proper use of Cheetle, as such, was found in a finger-painting online computer game as early as 2004 and 2005, after which the name was first popularly defined on Urban Dictionary,” according to Dictionary.com.

Many Twitter users did not know how to feel about Cheetle. 

As can only be expected there were many Don Cheadle jokes, but perhaps the best was the one that differentiated between Don Cheetle (the orange-tanned Donald Trump) and Don Cheadle (the Golden Globe-winning actor). 

Some on Twitter wanted to keep things simple.

Other users were just not feeling the name. Why call Cheetos dust “cheetle” when you can call it “Cheetos dust”?

“I love you Cheetos, but no. It’s Cheeto Dust, end of story. In no world am I ever gonna say I have Cheetle on my fingers, WTF,” one user wrote. 

Helms wasn’t the only one on social media upset that Rich Hall wasn’t getting his due credit. 

“So @Cheetos thinks they have come up with the perfect name of the dusty cheesy residue left on your fingers… Sorry, the name Cheetle was used by Rich Hall on NNTN as one of his @SnigletsOFC back in the ’80s,” another user wrote. 

The future is still unwritten, who knows if the term “cheetle” will ever catch on? Personally, I don’t converse about Cheetos enough for it to ever come up casually. Nevertheless, Frito-Lay’s branding effort clearly worked: we’re all talking about cheetle today.

This Hot Cheetos Thanksgiving Turkey From Reynold Is Causing A Lot Of Tension On Social Media

reynoldskitchen.com

Hot Cheetos have been the go-to snack for teenagers and young adults since they were released in 1992. These spicy corn-based snacks are worth every hot and painful mouthful. Have you ever eaten so many of these deliciously hot snacks that you questioned if you really even need a healthy stomach? If you’re a diehard fan of Hot Cheetos, this take on the classic Thanksgiving main course will make your mouth water. Reynolds Kitchens wants you to cover your turkey in a thick coating of ground-up Flamin’ Hot Cheetos this year, and we’re not sure how we feel about it.

Reynolds Kitchen wants you to spice up your Thanksgiving turkey… literally.

www.reynoldskitchen.com

“Kick up the flavor for your next Thanksgiving turkey with these popular chip flavored turkeys,” says Reynolds Kitchens at the top of their recipe, obscuring whether they mean that the chip-flavored turkeys are popular or whether they mean that the chips themselves are popular. How does somebody even come up with that? Who sits there eating their turkey dinner and thinks “You know what this really needs? A block of Cheddar and a family bag of hot Cheetos!”  But wait a sec, you have to admit it, it is an idea.

Would you try a Hot Cheetos turkey?

On Friday ABC-7 shared a recipe from Reynolds Kitchens, which is the recipe website of the Reynolds brand: “Hot Turkey in an Oven Bag” (which is a turkey covered in a thick coating of ground-up Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, or as they put it, “hot puffed cheese sticks,” and cooked in an oven bag. Of course, Twitter discussed it. “When I was growing up a turkey was baked in the Oven then u had regular cornbread dressing……now they covering the mf in hot Cheetos no fucking thank you!!!” tweeted one user.

People are begging people not to follow the recipe.

Nothing says ‘spice up the holidays’ quite like a cheese-stuffed, hot-cheetos-covered turkey. 

Few things defy Thanksgiving traditions like shoving a gigantic 2-pound block of cheese inside your turkey’s carcass and then coating all over it with crumbled Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Because why would you make a basic turkey when you can have a Flaming Hot Cheetos coated turkey, stuffed with cheese and potatoes?

The recipe video instructs us to start with a 15-pound turkey that gets brined in salty water and brown sugar. 

After more than a few generous dashes of tabasco, it marinates. Of course, after you cover the turkey with melted butter, the crushed Cheetos — the star — coat the turkey. Oh but before the Cheetos, of course, you stuff the turkey with an industrial sized block of cheese.

Another Flamin’ Hot Cheeto turkey recipe went viral in 2017 courtesy of Reynolds Kitchen, which also offered Cool Ranch and Funyuns variety.

But this highly shareable, highly doable recipe video went viral just this past weekend, why? People do not find it appetizing. But honestly, who knows? It could taste amazing. After  all, it has the key ingredient: Hot Cheetos. What’s not to feel thankful about?

From covering elotes to becoming works of art, Hot Cheetos are a trendy, viral snack.

Flamin’ Hot Cheetos have become ubiquitous from memes to works of art. In fact, searches for the snack have become an increasingly popular search on Google over the last few years, so it was just a matter of time until this idea surfaced.

As with all things, fans and consumers of Hot Cheetos have given the snack new and unexpected life.

Sure, Many people eat them as they are quite delicious and really enjoyable on a basic level. However, so many others have taken the snack and it into a culinary treasure, and it’s getting a little out of hand if you ask us: Hot Cheetos Bagel anyone? Or how about a Hot Cheetos covered Corndog, or corn on the cob.

So what do you think, would you try it? Or would you sooner chew up broken glass? Because we’re torn.
