Taste Test: Cheetos Mighty Zingers

Move over, Doritos Late Night Tacos at Midnight. I've found something better than you, and it's a bag of Cheetos Mighty Zingers. Everyone has a weak spot for certain foods, and one of mine is Cheetos. When I walk by the snack aisle at the store, I literally have to turn away so I don't make eye contact with the Flamin' Hot Cheetos, otherwise they'll come home with me. Unfortunately, I couldn't exercise the same self-control when we received a shipment of Mighty Zingers. Just how amazing were they? Keep reading to find out.

If you have a predilection for all things mini, Frito-Lay is calling these flavor-packed chips, which launched at the beginning of this month, "the tiniest Cheetos snacks ever made." Thus far, the new line offers two selections, Ragin' Cajun & Tangy Ranch and Sharp Cheddar & Salsa Picante, both filled with a duo of miniature Cheetos nuggets in two complementary flavors.

Sharp Cheddar & Salsa Picante: The favorite of the tasters. Alone, the sharp cheddar was very similar to a standard Cheeto, while the salsa picante had an earthy, red pepper quality to it.


Ragin' Cajun & Tangy Ranch: Although most preferred the other flavor, PartySugar and I couldn't get enough of this one's spicy ranch notes. The Ragin' Cajun bites were reminiscent of a Flamin' Hot Cheeto, only slightly sweeter.

Mighty Zingers are designed to be eaten by the handful so snackers can get a mix of both flavors, and come with a perforated tab for pouring into snack bowls — or directly into your mouth. While they're not as easy to eat because of their smaller size, it's exciting to get a different taste with each bite. These addictive pebbles would be great paired with cold beer at a sporting event, or even better, as a snack after drinking into the wee hours of the morning. Have you tried them? Which flavor did you prefer?

Oh, I will try any Cheeto once. Flamin' Hot and I are great friends so I will try these little guy and see if they will become a junk food guilty pleasure for me.

lately when i crave crunch i've been making a batch of kale chips. sure they sound scary until you try them and then once you have they are super addictive. the best part is that you don't feel guilty if you eat the whole tray - its kale after all! here's a quick and easy recipe: let me know what you think and don't forget the sea salt!

I'm more of a fan of the cheese puffs than the hard crunchy variety. .......that being said, I've never turned down any type of Cheeto, so I'm sure I'd try these too. :)
