My wife, Janis, and I visited our lake house in East Texas last weekend, and while we were there, we went to the local Brookshire's grocery store to pick-up something for dinner. I heard Cheetos was launching a new product soon, and I had to see if it was on the shelf yet. I found it: Cheetos Mighty Zingers. The vibrant metallic packaging made the bags easy to spot, and I love the name "Mighty Zingers" because it captures both the mischievous nature of Chester and evokes the idea of a flavorful snack food.
I had to choose between the two flavors of Mighty Zingers -- Ragin' Cajun & Tangy Ranch and Sharp Cheddar & Salsa Picante. I picked Sharp Cheddar & Salsa Picante. When I got home and tasted the Mighty Zingers, I was surprised to find there are actually two different flavors of tiny, bite-size Cheetos in each bag (quite the opposite of Giant Cheetos, which debuted last year). Best of all, I think Mighty Zingers tastes delicious.
Both flavor combinations of Cheetos Mighty Zingers are available in large bags in supermarkets, and you can find single-serve bags at convenience stores.
Watch-out for a sample of Cheetos Mighty Zingers inside Frito-Lay's 22-count Flavor Mix multipack in March, and on May 9, there will be a coupon for Cheetos Mighty Zingers in your Sunday newspaper.
