Cheetos au naturel
kedemel wrote in metaquotes

merle_ rants about the new Cheetos:

Gaack. I have just tasted Cheetos Natural. I almost threw up.

Think about Cheetos. What comes to mind? Three things pop into my head:

  • bright glow-in-the-dark orange, so intense it can repel insects

  • absolutely no natural ingredients: the foil-lined wrapper is closer to nature than the contents

  • infinite shelf and table life: set one of these suckers down and even rain will try to evade it
So what does the "Natural" version promise?
  • no artificial colours

  • no artificial ingredients

  • no preservatives

What? These are not "Cheetos". I do not know what they are, but the same company cannot be making them. It is like going into the Apple store, buying a Mac, coming home, opening the box, and finding a kangaroo inside. It's just wrong. "Yes, ma'am, we do make computers, but we also make kangaroos, two-litre bottles, lichen, hope, and credit cards."

Original post is seen here. And yes, it's been quoted with permission. xD


-chokes on her ice tea-

Cheetos are not natural. Natural Cheetos are carrots.
Well, they probably taste better than whatever FritoLay is selling.

Never had them, but after her post, I am scared to try.

"It is like going into the Apple store, buying a Mac, coming home, opening the box, and finding a kangaroo inside."

That's why I limit myself to Microsoft only when it comes to purchasing marsupials.

*hahaha* Sugah gliders.

i LOLd at the apple store bit. XD

Well, I've never been to an Apple store. But I have a //e and an LC-II (I maxed the ram in the LC-II even...) And I have /two/ mac/apple userpics. This is one...

can.not.stop.giggling.

:D

Is it bad of me that when I first read the quote, I read it as "Cheerios"? *wry*

And got to thinking: "Cheerios in bright glow-in-the-dark orange"?! This I gotta see!

C.

Oh God, the last parageraph made me laugh so hard I'm crying a little.

"parageraph" - giraffe in a wheelchair?

"... but we also make kangaroos, two-litre bottles, lichen, hope, and credit cards"

Beautiful :)

Awww, they kinda look like white poops!

I admit it, I'm curious, but I don't like the "puff" kind of Cheetos, only the crunchy. So it's likely not something I'd buy for myself.

best 'random item(ish)s' list ever.

Cheetos are also excellent firestarters, by the way.

This was discovered first hand, I might add, over many a long night of sitting around a campfire, dropping acid, zilching, and making hand fart noises.

...And I found this out from Sophmore science while trying to calculate Delta H of a cheeto. *is geeky*

*dies* That last paragraph is the best simile EVER.

Ja ja! I love her to death XD

...Cheetos Natural are my favourite snack food.

They're tasty and nummy!

Ironically, I hate real Cheetos.

Never had the Natural Cheetos, I shall have to try them now :D

I discovered that freshly grated uncooked carrot is exactly the same color as Cheetos. I was mildly afraid of carrots for about a week.

*laughs* Carrots are evil.
