Giant Cheetos — They're Here
Each piece in this bag of Cheetos was quite large, as you would expect from the Giant Cheetos name, with a tube-like shape, kind of like a marshmallow, though somewhat irregular, with rounded-off ends. Each tube was about an inch and a half in diameter and about an inch and a half long. The bag said that snackers probably can't get one entire piece into their mouths at once, but I had just minimal trouble trouble doing so. (Maybe that makes me a bigmouth.) Once I got it in there, it was definitely a lot of Cheeto. There was a pretty good cheese taste, plus a lot of corn puff taste from the vast cheeseless interior. The crunch level was somewhere between the level of Cheetos Puffs and Cheetos Crunchy. Eating a piece all at once was a bit of a challenge, so for some of the puffs, I went with the gnawing method. Cheese levels varied from one piece to the next, but the ones with a lot of cheese were pretty good. Our tasters were quite impressed by the size of the Giant Cheetos, and they liked the taste and texture. So even with quite a bit of food in a single Cheeto, they kept coming back to the bag for more.

A picture of an individual Cheeto is needed. They seem to be shaped like extremely large tater tots, which is disappointing. But maybe they did that on purpose, precisely so they would NOT resemble the, ew, wormlike, ew, shape of the familiar.
Things always go awry when regular-sized potato poopies and corn curlies are made in a huge version. It seems like there's something not quite right about them; they lack the comforting properties of the originals, like maybe it's kind of an uncanny valley effect or something.
