Each spring since 2015, Frito-Lay has released Cheetos Sweetos, and every year people get pumped. Well, spring came twice this year.
For Spooky Season 2022, Cheetos released Cheetos Bag of Bones, which, much like Sweetos, are a cinnamon-sugar-coated version of Cheetos. We weren’t able to get our hands on Sweetos in April, but I grabbed a bag of these bony bois at my local CVS to see what all the fuss is about.

They’re sweet, they’re crunchy, they taste like cinnamon sugar. Thats the good news. What didn’t resonate with me was the phony butter flavor these seemed to have. I think it’s supposed to make them taste like cinnamon rolls, but, ultimately, it just made them taste like an old stick of margarine rolled in cinnamon sugar. Truth be told, I really wanted these to taste like Taco Bell Cinnamon Twists, but they’re a little heavier and just don’t taste as good. These scored a lot of points just because they’re so stupid cute. Look, you can make a whole little skeleton with hands for feet! Love it.
If you have a sweet tooth and want to play at being Dr. Franken-Cheeto with your own edible skeleton, go ahead and pick up a bag. Personally, I think I’d prefer a Ziplock full of Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
