What are Cheetos?
Cheetos is a brand of cheese puff snack that popped up in America way back in 1948. The brand’s first product, which was actually invented in Texas, was simply called Crunchy Cheetos. Since then, the world has been introduced to dozens of new Cheetos flavours. We love ’em.
Can you buy Cheetos in the UK?
Yes, you can. You may have spotted a couple of bags in your local supermarket, corner shop or newsagents. But generally, you get a far better selection of flavours if you decide to order online.
Are Cheetos gluten free?
Apparently so. The GFB website states:
“Cheetos are gluten-free (at least in the US) and Frito Lay lists them on their list of US gluten-free products. Because they are not certified gluten-free, we cannot assign them a 10/10 confidence score”.
In other words, it’s best to check the back of the packet if you’re unsure.
Which websites sell Cheetos?
You may spot a bag of Cheetos at your local supermarket, but if you want access to a wider variety of flavours, you might as well head online. We’ve spotted a range of online retailers that have good stock of the more obscure Cheetos flavours.
