I know, I too was skeptical. You really shouldn't mess with Cheetos. It was a gamble when I bought them. But they're SO GOOD! Seriously, I can hardly tell a difference. My kids didn't even notice. And they're less than half the fat of regular Cheetos. Really, this is my favorite new find! Try them, and tell me what you think. You're still going to have bright orange all over your fingers, either way.
