Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Habanero Review

I came across this quote somewhere on the internet recently — and it really got me thinking:

No Matter how bad things get, there is always good in the world. Find it.

Very true. As much bullshit there is in the world, I found good at Walmart. Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Habanero chips! As most of you know by now, I absolutely looooove Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. My body has gotten so used to Flamin’ Hot Cheetos that my fingers are pretty much stained red for life. My butthole no longer burns when I take a shit after eating too many Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. I put Flamin’ Hot Cheetos in my cream cheese bagels. See? I live off of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and now here I am using my Flamin’ Hot Cheetos expertise to review these chips for you.

They look a bit different than the original.

I open the bag get excited even before trying them because I immediately notice differences. When compared to original Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, these are a little more orange in color and also smell slightly spicier and smokier. But who gives a shit color and smell…let’s dive into the taste.

Boy oh boy….these are HOT. These are GOOD! They taste very similar to original Flamin’ Hot Cheetos the first few seconds. You first taste the familiar spices of the original Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. There’s a unique smokey flavor to these Cheetos, as well as a sharp, fierce, spicy, bold cheddar flavor that you pick up on. Before you swallow and want to go back in for more, the heat strikes. The heat intensifies in your mouth as the time passes. The heat doesn’t just go away either — it lingers. I LOVE this. For those of you who may be more sensitive to spicy foods, this may be an issue.

No doubt, these are spicier than the original Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Heck, they may be even a tad bit spicier than the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Twice As Hot variety. The habanero element makes these Flamin’ Hot Cheetos a lot more flavorful than the original.

I am raving about these Cheetos, but remember, we all have different preferences when it comes to spicy foods. These are most definitely on the spicier side. Honestly, one of the spiciest chips out there right now. Have a glass of water next to you when trying these, but I promise you, you’ll really enjoy these if you are a fan of the original Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. This is heaven for me and you bet I am going back to Walmart stock up. Going back to that quote I mentioned up at the top…whenever things get bad, I will just stuff my face with these delicious Cheetos!

About the author


I steal my nieces’ Halloween candy and laugh about it, put whipped cream on vegetables, don’t trust food that isn’t in a package, and worship ice cream. Chips are my favorite snack and might just end up being my downfall. I would marry Flamin' Hot Cheetos if it was legal (and not weird). Born and raised near Detroit, I grew up eating delicious coney dogs, unique pizzas, and of course --- all the best snacks.
