Like I need a reminder that they're not considered "diet" food

The below mentioned product was purchased by me for my personal use. I am not being monetarily paid for this review. I will give my honest opinion and thoughts regarding said product anyway.

I love all things Cheese. We have a serious, long term relationship, Cheese and I. In fact, I have the same loving relationship with Cheese’s salty little adopted brother, Cheetos. So, you can imagine my delight when I was browsing the chips isle at the local supermarket and spotted this:

GIANT Cheetos

No one could ever accuse me of missing a chance to eat anything covered in Cheese. Especially not GIANT cheesy salty goodness covered Cheetos. I will admit it, I was excited to try the new GIANT Cheetos. I love all things Cheetos (well, except spicy hot burn your lips off and stain your fingers Cheetos. Those are kind of gross).

I brought my bag of GIANT cheesetastic goodness to work and mowed them all week long. Today, I was finishing off the bag and when I popped one of the final five GIANT Cheetos into my mouth, I had one of those gagging kind of what the hell did I just eat feelings. I looked into my bag because my GIANT Cheeto was wet. WET?!

My first thought was who has been drooling into my Cheetos bag? Upon closer inspection though (and by closer I mean dumping out the remaining four GIANT Cheetos onto a Kleenex on my desk and making a huge, crumby mess) I was greeted with what can only be described as gross. At least a tablespoon (YES, AN ENTIRE TABLESPOON) of clear looking oil. This oil had no smell or flavor. It was just pooled down there in the bottom of the bag, sopping up the extra Cheetos crumbs.

I’ll be honest. I grossed me out. My love of all things GIANT and cheesetastic is officially over now I’m afraid. I couldn’t bring myself to eat the remaining Cheetos. They were ruined for me.

My advice: They were good. They were Giant. They were Cheesetastic. However, they were also rolled in oil and dumped in a bag and that my friends, is gross.

Imagine my surprise when a Google search for "giant cheetos wet" turned up an actual blog. That fact alone kinda makes me sad. I just brought home my bag (I resisted the urge as long as I could), and there was greasy, "cheesy" spooge on the outside. Alarmed, my suspicions were confirmed when I opened the bag; the entire inside was wet and coated with oily orange globs. I sincerely hope that this was some quality failure, and not the way the product was intended to be. I am quite disappointed, as I've missed Planter's Cheez Balls since they disappeared and thought I might have found a suitable (and enormous) replacement. Alas, it was not to be. Anyway, thanks for blogging about your painful experience. It is comforting to know that at least I am not alone in my disgust.
