Mountain Dew-Flavored Cheetos, For Times When Eating & Drinking Separately Is Hard



I know I’m not the only one who, at some point, has tripped and knocked soda onto my nacho plate. I had hoped I was one of many who promptly realized that the resultant mess shouldn’t really be eaten, unless maybe you’re a starving kid in some starving country (I know the normal practice is to say “China” or “Africa” right here, but why be needlessly country-ist, or continent-ist?).

Anyway, I will say I’m disappointed that Japan did this first. We’re the country that invented the bacon cheeseburger pizza and the Philly cheesesteak eggroll, indicating our excellence at combining items we’re too lazy to eat separately. I think the key here, though, is Japan being first in video games – this is a combo food for the distracted eater who simply needs carbs and caffeine in familiar fake flavors while destroying virtual threats, and needs them YESTERDAY.

Yes, there were Pepsi-flavored Cheetos before. I consider those the test run. Doin’ the Dew should always be the endgame.
