Giant Cheetos

giantcheetos.jpgAn easy (lazy) way to expand a product line is to make a new product that is either smaller or larger than the original. For example, Mini Oreos or Big Cheez-Its. Cheetos has taken this approach with new Giant Cheetos. They’re pretty big all right – about the size of a marshmallow. If your mouth is as big as mine, you can pop the whole thing in your mouth and get a mouthful of cheesy crunchiness. I advise against doing this, however, as it’s a lot of Cheeto to chew and your jaw may get sore. No kidding. My jaw ached after eating just a few of them this way. They are a lot more manageable when bitten in half, but still require a lot of chewing. So, the downside of Giant Cheetos is that you may develop temporomandibular joint disorder. The upside is that you get a lot of great Cheetos flavor quickly. If you love Cheetos as much as I do, I recommend that you try Giant Cheetos and decide for yourself if the great flavor is worth the effort it takes to eat them.

It's a rip off. With smaller ones you would get more cheese flavor. That's what i want.

The crunchy Cheetos are 500 times better. These are all air and stick to your teeth. They are even worse than the puffs. Even though Jim is the best Phoood reviewer ever, I politely disagree. Don't waste your money!
