Did you ever just sit and stare into the Cheetos selection at the store and wish that there was just a ginormous version available?
I personally never have but someone out there did because Chester Cheetah has granted their wish. I know there is probably a Brittany Spear joke in there but that is too cheap a shot even for me.
So how giant is giant you ask?
That is a picture for scale. It is shaped like a neon orange marshmallow. And unlike marshmallow it is not smooshy and sweet. It is super cheese flavored. It's as if they took the amount of cheese flavor in a regular cheetos and upped it to 11. Actually it reminded me of an old school Planters Cheese Ball more then a Cheeto. By that I mean it's saltier then a normal Cheeto and the cheese flavor is a little more fake, but it's so good in that 'it's bad but it's good' way that you don't care.
The texture is both harder then a regular Cheeto or even a Cheeto Cheese Puff and at the same time the core is almost powdery. I have a small mouth and the downside for me is that they were just too big (stepping away from the double entndre). It was dense enough that biting into it scraped my gums and eating it whole wasn't much easier because it filled my whole mouth almost to the point it was uncomfortable (must refrain...) and for once that was kind of a bad thing (almost made it)
I liked the ides of the Giant Cheeto, I love the extra "cheese" I just don't like the texture as much.
