An Ode To Baked Cheetos

Well, this isn't so much an ode as it is really just generic literature about the greatness of Baked Cheetos. I just thought this post would come across as something of a literary masterpiece by saying it's "An Ode To...". When you hear something called an ode, it just sounds better than "Why I Love Baked Cheetos." I guess by explaining all this, it has really taken whatever advantage the real title has given me, but I digress.

On a whim and a recommendation from a friend, I bought a bag and well, let's just say the taste is pretty much there, but has half the fat. The back of the bag says it has 5 grams of fat per serving instead of the regular amount of 10 grams. Whatever I guess since it tastes the same. Of course, knowing me, if the healthy version of something has half as many grams of fat as the normal version, that really just means I can eat twice as much and that's just what I did last night. I finally cracked open the bag and trust me it wasn't pretty, but it sure was good and I've got the orange fingers to prove it.

If you haven't heard of or seen this delicious snack, take a look here. I'm not sure who had the time to do this web site (maybe the snackfood industry), but it gives recaps of tons of snack food items. Apparently there are baked versions of several Frito-Lay chips. I'm excited to try the Baked Cooler Ranch Dorritos. I'm not a huge snackfood person, but like many of us, I go through phases where I just can't get enough of one snack or another.

For example, during my 4-hour drive home, sometimes I'll get a need for a small bag of Dispy Doodles. I haven't really seen them down in the mid-atlantic area all that much, but they sure are good. Like the review suggests, they taste like Fritos, but don't really taste as salty so your mouth can handle the taste over and over again, in other words, you can easily finish an entire bag without much trouble.

One of the greatest snacks is a bag of Chedder Chex Mix. It really might just be the best snackfood out there right now. There are several snacks in the top 10, but none deserve a post all to itself as much as Chedder Chex Mix. Well, that's not really true, but I gotta run so I'll write about it another time.

For the rest of my blog that is full of rants, raves, and attempts at humor, its current address is:

on the baked cheetos subject, i would suggest getting the flaming hot, crunchy baked cheetos bag. then put about 5-6 in a full a plastic water battle, shake and let stand for an hour or so. then take a whiff and see if you like them anymore... ugg. i cant get the burning out of my nostril - but its really something you should try.
