Strawberry. Cheetos.

A review from
I don't know the actual name of these, as the package was in Korean and did not have the sticker that foods imported to the USA are required to have (ingredients in English, etc.) These are genuine Cheetos brand snacks that are not cheez flavored, but strawberry... these are bright pink puffs. (Shaped like Chester Cheetah's paw.)Glossy with sugar, they taste no different from, say, Frankenberry or any other artificial strawberry snack.

oh my god, those sound delicious!

They're probably like Frank 'N' Berry but only snack food. A bit on the disturbing side, that's for certain.

And curses, I swear the reference to Frank 'N' Berry *wasn't* in the post when I made my comment. My bad. :(

I really really want to try these now. Wish I knew somebody in Korea to ship some to me.

So, does that mean when you eat them you get pink fingers, rather than orange? Or even better, a bright red hue, which will make mothers everywhere scream in horror when they mistakenly think their kid's are licking blood-covered fingers? Yummy! I'm sure it will only be a matter of time before the product hits shelves state-side.

Shouldn't they be called "Strawtos"?

off topic, but booo!!
you removed The Owls from your radioblog list.
boo, I say.

I replace all my songs on my radioblog every month or so. Don't worry, though, The Owls will be back someday.

I think a clever name would be berrytoes...

ewwwwwww! i remember about 15 years ago when I worked in a company (here in Toronto) that made the spices for Hostess (now Hostess Frito Lay) products. They came out with orange, apple and (i think) grape potato chips. They actually had them in the stores. I tried them. They were disgusting. I never saw them again.

Holy shit, I actually remember those. They were disgusting! I mean, grape chips? What the hell?

I made the scrunchy "eeeew" face as I read that.

Shouldn't they change their name to Strawtos and have some Strawtos obsessed cartoon animal on the bag? They sound gross but I totally have to try them.

I love the snack aisle at the asian market. Sometimes I dont even know what I am bringing home. The other day I had some banana flavored grass jelly. Some of my favorites: dried salted plums, aloe vera sweet gel, hot and sour mango, jack fruit chips, wasabi peas, wasabi salmon puffs, birds-nest drink, and a bright green bean paste filled, taro root jello-like pastry.

By Blogger asia, at 2:46 AM  

Those aren't even the scariest looking snack from that page.

By Blogger Gwenhwyfar, at 1:07 PM  

I think that I'm thinking they are gross because they will taste like Cheese AND Strawberries. But just strawberries, that could be alright.
