Finally got to try the XXtra Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.

Yep, the regular Flamin’ Hot has been rendered pointless and obsolete. XXtra is perfect. It actually has the right amount of kick for something that advertises itself as “hot.”
XXtra's are great, but I can't find them in a 9 oz bag, only in the smaller bags, which is a bummer

Same. These are perfect and left my mouth tingling just enough.

I love spicy anything, but that’s a lot of garbage you’re eating :/

Also, is there some genetic differences in people? I’m almost 40 and can count on one hand the times spicy food has ‘burned twice’ and one of those was the shitty Indian that food-poisoned me.

Okay, laugh if you wa nt, but I went at a big bag of these last night with a nice beverage and, now, in the morning, I'm trying to recover on the toilet and I'm experiencing the worst pain ever. o

this is the worst pain I've had in months.

Just found these at CVS
Wasn't too big of a fan of those, they have an odd taste the flavors don't work well together at least in my opinion.

It's been hard to find the XXtra flamin hot cheetos on the east coast, when I lived in WA I could find them wherever I went.

XXtra’s that I’ve found haven’t been in the chip aisle, but instead in a smaller size and near the front of stores, near registers

Where do y’all find Xtra Hot? Has it always been around?
All over! Liquor stores, CVS, Wal Mart, grocery stores where ever!

I straight up hate ranch but I wanted to try these cos I like Chipotle. I hated em. Ranch flavor is too strong

Sorry for the bump, but I was thinking of this thread after having tried both Chester's Fries and Flamin' Hot Limón for the first time.

The former... I did not like, and were quite spicy for my taste buds. Besides, these fries do nothing for me, just like with TGI Friday's. Sorry.

The latter is so good, though. I'm glad I only had a small bag because I'd have gone for more.

I tried the Extra Hot Chili & Lime Pringles. They're alright.

Honestly, Pringles have never quite done it for me, anyway. The only one I really liked (Multigrain Sour Cream & Onion) was discontinued. The other acceptable choice after that (Loud Margherita Pizza) has become hard to find. Meh.

In the end I think the XXtra Flamin' Hot Cheetos are going to take the win.

Just a random remark since this topic caught my eye but I bought a big mixed variety pack of different types of spicy chips/snacks. I've grown a fondness for them lately so I figured it would be a good way to try a few different ones out.

Oddly enough the one I liked the most was the least spicy one, it was the little thing of Cheddar & Jalapeno Cheetos. I don't really even normally care for Cheetos, never buy 'em, but I really liked those.

they have the Mix called “Spicy Party” that has two spicy kinds of Doritos



ive seen that still in stores
Hmmm. Checked with wifey and she said it was like two years ago we bought those. Lol, husbands and our memories. I’ll double check though. We live in south TX. They were pretty good. The pretzels always fill like fillers though.

does anyone in this thread still have the enamel intact on their teeth? I can only ever eat a single bag of takis fuego like a couple times a year because they give me awful toothaches.

Cheetos Flamin' Hot from México. Eating them right now. The 150 g (5.25 oz) bag is around $1.50 USD. I don't know how hard are these to get in your city, but if you want to try them let me know and I can ship them to you in one my trips to the USA (at least twice per month).

They taste a little bit different than the USA ones.

Flamin' Hot is too hot for me sadly, despite wanting to love them.

My favorite Cheetos were the Salsa Con Queso Cheetos, but the bastards discontinued them. They were the best thing I ever ate.

I was picking a bag of these up off the shelf this weekend and my wife warned that my snack stockpile is getting too large as is. I have a case of Herr’s Red Hot and a flat of Planters CheezBalls. But I WILL get a bag of these before Halloween.

I still had two Paqui one chip challenge chips and thought about eating them despite a best by date of April 2018. Apparently theyre going for a bunch of money on eBay right now. Like $60+.

So conflicted.
