Cheetos Gets It Poppin’ in 2020 by Releasing Popcorn

If you grew up in the 2010’s, where Hot Cheetos were breakfast at school and there was always that one kid that sold them out of their backpack, there’s a good chance you’ve eaten popcorn and thought “This would be amazing with that stuff they put on Hot Cheetos.” 

Just know that: a) you’re not alone in your hedonistic tendencies and b) this actually exists now. Starting this month, stores nationwide will be carrying bags of Cheetos Popcorn.

And, if you’re one of those people who likes regular Cheetos more— who am I to judge your lackluster chip preferences? — Cheetos Popcorn will be available in both regular and hot.

Each variant can be purchased in big bags (7oz for regular and 6.5oz for hot) at $3.99 as well as small, 2oz bags for $1.89.

Cheetos, unfortunately for my stomach, continues to know my weakness: putting hot Cheetle, the official name for “the stuff they put on Cheetos,” on any chip. I might have to stop by and pick up some from 7-Eleven on my way home from the office today and relive my after school, Cheetle-covered memories.

Cheetos Popcorn Is Coming To Regal Cinemas For Its First-Ever National Launch

A couple of years ago, Frito-Lay began testing Cheetos popcorn as a new snack option for movie theaters. Nowadays, the cheesy snacks are getting tossed on top of just about anything, to which they’re taking advantage.

Frito-Lay’s Cheetos popcorn is now officially coming to all Regal Cinemas nationwide. The new popcorn features both Cheetos and popcorn flavored like the iconic snack, and will be available in 32-ounce buckets, according to a press release.

While the popcorn has been spotted at various spots in the past, Regal’s partnership with Frito-Lay makes it the first national movie theater group to have the novel item. Regal Cinemas owns Regal, Edwards, and United Artists (UA)-branded theaters, so you can expect to find the cheesy popcorn and chips there once it launches.

Speaking of launch dates, Frito-Lay got theirs in just under the wire for this Cheetos popcorn. It will debut nationally on December 15th, just in time for the premiere of the hyped blockbuster Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
