Anyone tried the new Cheetos KD?

Saw the Hot Deals thread and thought why not? Either it's my lack of culinary sense or these don't justify the $2 per box price. I tried the middle one; Flamin' Spice or something. Tastes like they just added a bunch of Cayenne or Parpirka along with the regular Cheddar Cheese powder. Got through a few bites and "meh". I'm not impressed.

Don't waste your money.

Tried the bold and cheesy version. Tasted exactly like a Cheeto (not a big fan). And the bright orange colour was a little disconcerting. Won't be buying again.

It was ok but for the money it wasn't anything special.

Can get KD on sale for under $1 all the time.

Is there something wrong with your camera or is that really the colour? Face With Tears Of Joy

FreshCo has these at regular price for $1.78.

I tried the jalapeño one so far and I will be buying it again.

I'm guessing the colour is accurate. The bold and cheesy version is bright orange, like, almost fluorescent orange!

I was at FreshCo this morning; the price is $1.99 currently, the same as Walmart.

They have some killer deals on frozen meals though. Stouffer's sandwhiches like Cheese Steak and other assortments are $1.44. Also Pilsbury Pizza Pocket / Hot pockets are also the same $1.44 for 4.

Many were grabbed by yours truly. Great for snacks and lazy days.

I guess each store sets their own price the one in Mississauga I was at was $1.78 I just assumed it was universal pricing.

I saw in our local grocery store for $3.99, at that price i just shook my head no and onto the next aisle. Somehow the thought of Cheetos flavoured mac and cheese just isn't appealing, the pictures even moreso. /No wonder the price seems to be dropping like crazy. Sounds like someone's late night dream never lived up to the light of day and it will soon be a collectable for the prepper food storage locker.

Loblaws is still asking for $3.99. Why? I don't know. Even Metro brought the price down to $2. I'm not sure about Sobey's though. I have not been to that store in a while.
(Sobey's & FreshCo are the same company, so I can only guess Sobey's lowered their price also?)

I don't recall seeing Cheetos Mac N Cheese @ No Frills though, so I have no idea what they might charge.

Beating FreshCo's $1.69 price would be a good "WOWZA" for Basics. lol

Just ordered off Amazon for 1.97. Good price for us lazy people. Reviews aren't great but it's just something we all have to try.

I impulse bought these last week when I did groceries. I bought the flaming hot, and one other flavour. They were 2/$4. I'm guessing they'll be in the cupboard for a while before I get brave enough to try one.

One of the casualities of not being able to drive to the US to buy Ameristuff. There's two flavours of cheetos down there I quite like:

1) Flaming XXX hot Cheetos. It's a super megahot version of flaming hot cheetos

2) Flaming Hot Ranch (Cool Ranch) Cheetos I love those ones.

Picked up the Poutine and Jalapeno (not pictured). Still unopened and won't be for a while. Impulse buy. I prefer corkscrew pasta anyway.
