You can pick up these boxes at Walmart stores nationwide, and they’re also available for order online through Walmart.
Cheetos plans to roll them out to even more retailers in 2021. They’re available in a box or single cup format at a suggested retail price of 98 cents, putting it on par with longtime standards in boxed mac and cheese like Kraft when it comes to cost.
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.
Just a few months after their test of the hypeworthy collab went viral, KFC and Cheetos are officially bringing their fried chicken collab to the masses.

Starting July 1st, the Cheetos Sandwich will be coming to KFC restaurants for a limited time. Just like it was in the tests, this version will contain fried chicken, a pile of Cheetos, and a custom Cheetos sauce made by Frito-Lay.
This is different than just mashing up Cheetos you can get in stores and a KFC sandwich specifically because of that sauce, which adds a level of sharp, cheesy flavor to it.
KFC and Cheetos will also be collaborating on a pop-up in New York City that features other exclusive Cheetos items. The restaurant, which will appear on June 27th, will sell items like a KFC Mac and Cheetos Bowl, Cheetos Loaded Fries, and KFC Cheetos Hot Wings.
Those items will only be available for a four hour period, but the Cheetos sandwich will be available for all of July nationwide.
Cheetos, the cheesy snack with a cult following and fast fashion powerhouse, Forever 21, have linked up to release a seasonal collection of clothes that scream summertime hijinks. Stay on trend and on fuego with the fits with a capsule collection that celebrates the fun of Cheetos, minus the orange-dusted fingertips.
Launching today, June 6th, the limited-edition collection will consist of flamin’ hot gear the likes of graphic tees, shorts, swimsuits, crop tops, socks and slides. Comprised of women’s and men’s styles, the collection will be available online and at Forever21 stores nationwide and will retail from $5 to $30. Check out the pics below for a glimpse into what’s in store for Cheetos fans.
Our late night culinary fusions of fast food sandwiches and crunchy, cheesy Cheetos are becoming a reality we no longer have to hack for ourselves.

KFC’s newest item, the Cheetos Sandwich, takes that college food combo and elevates it to a point where you can’t just replicate it at your local corner store. In addition to cramming Cheetos and fried chicken into the same bun, they’ve also drenched the interior with a custom Cheetos sauce made by Frito-Lay.
It’s the nighttime guilty pleasure we’ve all either made or dreamed of creating ourselves. The only thing missing to take this sandwich beyond insanity? A Flamin’ Hot version.
The new Cheetos Sandwich is being tested for a limited time at participating locations in the following regions:
Last year, Cheetos hosted a pop-up restaurant in New York City where all of the items used some of their cheesy chips. After its viral success, they’ve decided to bring it back for another run, but this time, in Los Angeles.
The new Cheetos pop-up was helmed by street food legend Roy Choi, who’s developed an entire menu of creations based on his style of cooking. In total, there will be three appetizers, four entrees, and three desserts to choose from, with everything pricing between $11 and $32.
Below is a look at the entire menu Choi served up at “The Flamin’ Hot Spot,” the name given to his three-day Cheetos restaurant.
Flamin’ Hot Elotes
The buttered corn is covered with white cheddar and Flamin’ Hot cheese puffs in this Cheetos-packed take on the classic street food.
Flamin’ Hot Chipotle Ranch Wings
These are like buffalo wings with the ranch already on top, since they’re crusted in Flamin’ Hot Chipotle Ranch Cheetos. There’s still some on the side for dipping, though.
Cheetos Sweet n’ Spicy Chili Meatballs
A blend of sweet chili sauce and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos come together to create this fiery flavor combination.
Xxtra Flamin’ Hot Rice Bowl
This rice bowl packs more of a punch than the other dishes since it uses Xxtra Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. There’s some sour cream to help cool it down if it’s too much for you, though.
Hot Cheetos Burrito
This burrito comes in both meaty and vegetarian options. You can opt for short rib or avocado to go along with cheese, chili sour cream sauce, and Cheetos.
Flamin’ Hot Fries
Loaded fries get an upgrade in this dish, as the crispy spuds are swapped out for Flamin’ Hot Cheetos puffs.
Five Alarm Cheetos Steak
Served sizzling hot to the table, this steak comes with a side of charred jalapenos and rice topped with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
Cheetos Sweetos Hot Cakes
Classic pancakes are twisted up with the addition of caramel Cheetos Sweetos alongside whipped cream and chocolate for a breakfast spin on dessert.
Chester’s Cheetos Churros
Probably the most intriguing dish of the entire set, White Cheddar cheese puffs are paired with caramel and sweet whipped cream. I’m curious to see how the white cheddar flavor plays into dessert.
“Hot” Chocolate Shake
Choi’s take on a chocolate shake blends in Hot Cheetos and raspberries for a blend of sweet, spicy, and fruity. They’re garnished with a chocolate-coated spicy chip, an interesting flavor blend for sure.
Reservations were booked at a lightning speed this year, but Foodbeast was able to check all of the dishes out firsthand. You can see how all of the food tasted in the above episode of News Bites. If you want to make these dishes at home, you can order the ingredients and recipes to make the items yourself via AmazonFresh.
According to Variety, FOX Searchlight and producer DeVon Franklin will bring the film to life. It will center on how Montanez went from picking grapes to a Frito-Lay janitor to the head of their Hispanic marketing team. The current working title for the movie is “Flamin’ Hot,” after the iconic snack Montanez created that became one of Frito-Lay’s top-selling products.
There’s no specific timetable as to when the movie will come out, but there’s been at least one suggestion online for who should play the role of Richard Montanez.
