As a mother – I despise cheetos. Not because I think they’re slowly killing my kids – which its possible they are. But I can’t stand how much orange dye is used in the process. They are crazy messy. Even eating just one will stain your fingers to the point of conviction.
Adults have a hard time eating them without looking ridiculous. Forget about kids – they look like ragamuffins by the time they finish the bag. Yet it seems as though every variety pack ever sold has cheetos. (unless you go the sun chips route which is a good alternative.) It comes with 7 flavors and cheetos always makes its way in there.
Why?! Are there that many closet cheetos lovers out there? Are they cheap to make because they’re made of chemicals so they throw it in the box to offset the price? As I watched Cannon eat his lunch I wondered these questions. In our house, they’re always the last ones chosen. Which is why Cannon ends up with them on occasion. And then after he “washes” his face and hands I find orange stained hand towels in the bathroom and the kitchen and smears across the front of his shirt. I’m going to start anonymously dropping off little bags of cheetos to all the people who have crossed me. That will show them.
