Trader Joe’s Is Now Selling A Healthier Version Of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos


Cheetos are a millennials go-to snack (you know, when we run out of avocado toast). In fact, last year, there even was an entire pop up restaurant dedicated solely to Cheetos. However, it is pretty common knowledge that Cheetos aren’t the healthiest, so of course, peeps were excited when Trader Joe’s dropped Spicy Cheese Crunchies that taste almost as good, but are also healthier.

Instagram user @suzjojo first spotted the Spicy Cheese Crunchies and according to comments posted on the picture, they sound like a treat. One user commented ” [they’re] similar to Flamin’ Hot Cheetos but not quite as hot. Still plenty spicy though. No MSG or any other artificial preservatives or colors, of course.” Another added that they’re spiced with paprika and turmeric for coloring instead of red dye, too. And similar to the non-spicy crunchies, the spicy flavor has plenty more natural seasonings inside like garlic powder, onion powder, and citric acid to add a punch.

With one serving size rounding out to a nice 130 calories, we’re pretty sure that Spicy Cheese Crunchies are gonna fly off the shelves!
