Review: Flamin’ Hot Chipotle Ranch Cheetos & Open Lines Thursday / I’m Off On A Jet Plane

JFG Nation, I’m off on a jet plane to California. Follow my IG for pics of In N Out, tacos, and sunshine.

Otherwise, the floor is yours. I haven’t answered comments in a while, but I’ll answer things you post below as best I can. Wanna talk about the Keystone pipeline? About Lebron stepping out of bounds? About the Comey testimony? About the best pizza in America?

What say you, JFG Nation? Comment below.

Today’s junk food: Flamin’ Hot Chipotle Ranch Cheetos!!

I love the entire Flamin’ Hot line of Frito-Lay’s.  Flamin’ Hot Cheetos are the JFGal’s favorite. Add Chipotle Ranch? Hmm hmm HMMMMMMMM.


WHY OR WHY NOT? The first impression I got when I ate these was “Huh, these are SALTY.” Because these are pretty salty – more salty than normal Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. But in the end, they tasted like Flamin’ Hot Cheetos without the lime tang but dipped in ranch dressing. A bit of smokiness punctuated the chipotle aspect of the flavor. GOOD burn but muddled by the tingling left by the saltiness of the Cheeto.

Overall these are BOLD – spicy, salty, creamy, and powerful. I liked these. They taste exactly how you think they would.


PURCHASED AT: Wegmans, Germantown, MD.


COST? $2.99.

    Have DC been crazy with the politics climate lately with the heated debates?

    Will you be in NYC for the Summer Food Show? Any tips for the newbies like me going for the 1st time. Which booths were your favorite.

      DC always crazy with politics.

      I’ll make some portion of SFFS but not sure when.

      First timers at SFFS – don’t eat everything you see in first four hours. Pacing is key.

    Hope see you there!

    Thanks for the help. It will be tempting with that 1st four hours. Also one another question: is it true that the booths give out lots of items at the end of the show run? Heard it is true.

    Hate to break it to you but it’s been overcast here the past couple of days. Tomorrow should be sunny though!

    Also, you #cheatday on a lot of your IG posts, how many cheat days do you have man!?!?!?!

    You’re answering questions in this post? I’ll take it!

    I wondered if you’ve ever tried Kasugai’s Muscat Gummy and would consider reviewing it. I’m mainly curious on how you would describe the taste and smell because I like how you describe the junk food you review as detailed as possible.

    If you stop by a 99 Ranch you can buy them there.

    Here’s what the candy looks like:

      @ann – never tried it but will have to check it out. Muscat gummy? Whoa. Maybe that have it on the east coast, will have to look. No 99 Ranchs there

    Congratulations on the upcoming new addition to ur family!! Call it JFBABY. When it due? Wish u the luck.

  6. Ann says:

    If you do get your hands on the muscat gummy I recommend trying them refrigerated!
    Very refreshing especially on a hot summer day or as an after dinner candy.

    I meant since you’ll be in California there’s probably a high chance that you’ll be near a 99 Ranch. And now I know that the east coast does not have 99 Ranch. Wonder what the gigantic Asian supermarket equivalent is on the east coast?

    Man, that Comey testimony…Is it weird that, politics aside, I’m finding the whole thing as fascinating as an HBO drama?

  8. Maria says:

    Does anyone know if they sell these hot Cheetos in Lancaster or palmda

  9. Quiana says:

    These chips are the best

  10. Quiana says:

    Are y’all going to keep selling them?
