Perfect Snack Combo.

***If you are a organic health nut who refuses to harm your body with saturated fat and MSG...well, I commend you. But please stop reading here. This post is not for you. It is for people who like to add a little junk-food to their diet here and there. For people who live on the edge.***

Ya know how people claim that "nothing is as good as the original"? Well, pretty ladies and handsome gents, I am here to prove you wrong.

If anyone has been bold enough to go out on a limb and try the new jalepeno cheetos, you will understand completely. I. am. addicted. It is not even funny. I can finish an entire bag within a few days and still crave more.

It is a completely unhealthy and ridiculous kick I'm on.

My thighs are NOT appreciative, though my taste buds dance with glee.



Yum. Husby refused to try them at first because he claimed, "I just like regular cheetos". I force fed them down his gullet (with love, of course) and now he likes them, too. Just not near as much as I do. He can eat a few and stop. I can stop, too. After a few.... bags.

As I was googling a picture of these bite sized salty delights, I saw that there are forums and websites devoted solely to the "addiction of cheddar jalepeno cheetos". That is taking it a little too far - wouldn't you say?

If you have had the "Flamin' Hot" cheetos and do not care for them, do not write me off just yet. They taste nothing like them. They are packed with much more flavor and deliciousness. And they will not burn your tongue out of your head.

They are perfect.



I am impulsive when I see these at the store. I throw them in my cart without even realizing it. I feel like a vampire overwhelmed by the smell of his favorite blood and I pounce on it without thinking first! (Too many Stephanie Myer books? Probably so.)

Okay, so I hope I have convinced you to try these. You will not be sorry.

My next example of something being "better than the original" is the sweet and simple, delightful chocolate bar known as the....



Peanut Butter Twix. Be still my heart. I know this has been out for a while, but I just can't get over the greatness of it. I prefer it over a regular Twix any old day.

If only they would create a Jalepeno Cheeto & PB Twix diet, my life would be complete.

Have you tried? Do you love? Am I off my rocker for devoting an entire post to chips and chocolate bars?

Probably....

But I can't help it. I'm in love, and it was time the world knew.

  3. I love, Love, LOVE Peanut Butter Twix! And Trick-or-Treating is coming soon! You know what that means, that means bags of PB Twix "for the kids" that never seem to make it to the treat bowl. Hey, I am just doing my part to keep the children of America healthy! What can I say... I am a giver... :D

  4. I feel the same way about Brachs Maple Nut Goodies. But the cheetos? I cannot handle the film they leave on your fingers...

  5. Okay.love.love.love cheetos. favorite "chip." honestly. saw these in the store and walked right by, for I do.not.like."flamin hot" ones. but, if you say "try" I will do just that. As far as the "Twix" don't even get me started!! and Peanut Butter! Well, let me just say, I LIVED on Peanut Butter during BOTH pregnancies!! So, I guess, I'm going to have to try these two together! All in the name of "science" right? Good!

  13. I have an unhealthy obsession with Twix as well....

  14. Peanut butter Twix? Dear god woman! You are not helping with my diet at all. :) I will have to recommend the Cheetos to Sean though. It sounds like something he would love.

  16. Admit it - you jointed that Jalepeno Cheetos Addicts group.

  17. I am not a fan of hot/spicy..are you sure the flamin hot won't burn my mouth!?! I am a little skeptical. ;) I loveee baked lays though.. I always have to have a bag in my house. They are the perfect salty goodness combination!

  21. Dang it! While reading your post I had to stop get up and grab some doritos (I have no more cheetos) and had to eat them to have strength to read the rest of your post. Man, it ruined my diet (which I ruin about three times a day). Anyway, I'll have to try those cheetos, mmm... maybe you'll get some freebies from the cheetos people since your advertizing for them! :)

  22. I'll give 'em a try.

    Have a good weekend.

  23. I love the Reese's Fast Break way more than the original peanut butter cups. I am with you on the Twix too. I won't be trying the Jalapeno Cheetos though because I am just not a fan of hot. My man is however so I may have to pick some up for him!

  24. Love spicy and absolutely love peanut butter and chocolate! So yummy! I would have said the same things, I can stop...after a few bags. I have very little food self control!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm the kind of person who thinks ketchup is too spicy so I probably wouldn't care for the cheetos, but I'm in love with PB Twix! Have you tried a Take5 bar yet? They are yum, I think you'd like 'em.

    ReplyDelete
  26. You are so stinkin funny.... I'd eat them in car....

  27. I will be buying those cheetoes for my boys-they all love them. Me? pass the kettle corn!!

  28. My husband loves that flavor of cheetos...they are good but I can stop. They are hot or tangy! I cannot stop with chili fritos...one after another! I don't buy them!

    Happy Friday!

  30. I'm ashamed to admit, but I haven't tried either one of those! I'll have to make a point to do so. Especially considering chocolate is my kryptonite...

  31. Yummy...now I want junk food, and I don't have any in the house. What's a pregnant girl to do? :)

  32. Oh my goodness, you're a girl after my own heart! I am a junk food junky and Twix are my favorite candy bars! I'll have to try the jalepeno cheetos!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love Cheetos...now I'll have to try the jalapeno flavor. I also love Twix. I think I'll have them both for dinner and tell everyone it's my new diet because I'll add a diet coke and that will surely cut the calories to nothing:-)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have never tried those cheetos, but just added them to my grocery list. I'm intrigued.

  35. Hello...

    I've tagged you on my blog! I would love to know 7 quirky things about you!

    If you'd like to play, head on over!!

  36. We will definitely have to try those Cheetos. I know Dennis will love them. I discovered the peanut butter Twix a long time ago. It was out years ago and then disappeared again. I think they are better than the original. Oh, by the way, I updated my blog finally on blogger. Check it out.

  37. Update: We tried the Cheetos. They were hot but I loved them. I just wish I had bought a Twix to wash them down!

    ReplyDelete
  38. You crack me up! I haven't had those cheetos, but I feel that I need to now ;)

    Sorry for not being by in a while.

  39. OMG I love those jalapeno cheetos! They are just the right amount of hotness.

    I've recently been addicted to the new cheez-its. I don't even like the normal cheez-its, but they are called duos. There are two different flavors in one box. I always get the zesty cheddar-white cheddar. You should definitely give them a try!
