    The company that stocks the vending machines here obviously thinks everyone in the building is stoned. That's the only explanation I can think of. Has a sober person ever eaten a Cheeto?

    Jenn loves Cheetos.

    Maybe I should check to see how much of our Visine has been used up :think:

    I once ate some of the hot cheetos sober...they tasted like they came out of a car battery.

    Cheetos is an example of the ultimate marketing...

    my sis-in-law and 4yo niece were at a sandwich shop, she offered her daughter two choices of the far more healthier chips/snacks and my niece said, "I want that one." Pointing to the cheetos.

    She's never had cheetos, ever, so no clue what it tastes like. She picked it cuz of the bag.

    I think Apple Jacks is the ultimate marketing.

    Think about it... an entire product's very successful marketing campaign based entirely around the fact that the product is badly named. :clapping:

    the bright colors and animation-type character FTW.

    a few years ago when trick-or-treaters were coming around, i recall there was someone w/ a real young kid (probably ~1 y/o or so)....we had the big bucket of mixed treats and the toddler immediately went for the brightly colored starburst.

    I'll eat cheetos sober about once every 18 months. Now if there are funions in there I can see the point.

    I like Cheetos! I've never been stoned though...do they taste better then?

    I used to work in a Frito-Lay distribution center. Endless supply of Cheetos! Fritos too, but Fritos are too greasy.

    After my kid starts going to school and sleep-overs, it's going to a much harder challenge to raise my kid healthy.

    It was easy for my sis-in-law until that point.

    There are Funions in there. If I wasn't so lazy, I would go do an inventory. Then you would see my suffering.

    Did you see the Survivorman where he used the Frito to start/transport a fire? Half a chip burned like an oil wick for quite awhile. I haven't eaten one since.

    you speak the truth. it's amazing what crap the school cafeteria offers as lunch choices. restaurant kid menus are huge offenders too.

    I'll have to put mu vote in for the good ol' McDonalds.....
    Case in point: The food sucks, the service is even worse (you have to carry your food to the table and then dispose of the trash yourself-- as with all fast food joints) But they still manage to drive in thousands of consumers every few hours....There's nothing attractive about McD's aside from the visual recognition and marketing...

    I'm beginning to wonder about my counterparts in this thing called the human race:rant:

    The difference with Cheetos is wheter you're eating the puffed or crunchy hard ones..

    Cheetos makes out that the puffy ones are baked and therfore better for you.

    touche'...

    I am still astonished at the number of people that eat at Mc.D's....
    You can't tell me that the food is desirable.... I don't even care about the possible health issues about that food-- I just don't like to voluntarily assault my olfactory and gustatory sensors.....

    i've eaten those. got suckered by the i-wish-i-were-at-whole-foods brown colored bag, and the huge NATURAL banner across the top.

    Ehhh, I dunno..

    the regular fried crunchy ones dipped in mayonaise goes pretty good with bacon and peanut butter sammiches..

    They don't seem all that different than the old standby ones from the healthfood store:
