The moment I saw them sitting there in the gas station, I knew I had to have them. Cheesy snacks and me go hand in hand. Silly marketing gimmick to sell more of them makes them even better! Cheetos partnered with Shrek 2 on their latest product, Cheetos Twisted - "Shrek Green". Beautiful. I read "limited time" and say, "how much?" And if they were the same great taste, why not buy them? They seemed to have some little specks that turned green on contact with fluids, be it saliva or water. As the packaging says, Cheetos Twisted turned my tongue Shrek green "making these snacks the coolest your friends have ever seen." Oh that silly Chester Cheeto...what will he come up with next?
So is this snack coolest thing you"ve ever seen?

My daughter has been wanting these since she first saw them on television! Now that I have seen the results first hand, I will be buying her some on the way home!

christina, i guess they never claimed that they would win the ladies over. sadly.
oscar, are you trying to say that i have the same purchase habits as a child? (no need to answer, i think i already know that i do). they are pretty cool though. except if you"re still chewing or still have some in your mouth. then it just looks like a green mush.

The women must be falling at your feet as a result of this post.

Do you think there are enough perservatives in these Cheetos to last until St. Patty"s Day? I envision tremendous amounts of fun. Yes, I like to plan ahead.
Tien you should add a hot pics page to the right and post all your umm way hot pictures of yourself. Heh, call it "For the Ladies in the House" or "For Ladies Only." Go wild - arrrr.

i second christiona"s suggestion. Included in that gallery will be every picture of you eating you"ve ever posted. Oh, and that damn lion scarf one too.
Posted by: FlatGreg at May 14, 2004 10:56 AM
I love the lion scarf picture.
Posted by: corie at May 14, 2004 11:24 AM
yeah, um tien whatever happened to the picture you took of yourself licking the cupcake from the other night? So sad I didnt see that one up there...And then there"s always tien with pigtails. a classic.
Posted by: christina at May 14, 2004 11:39 AM
corie, of course the women are falling at my feet...don"t they always...?
christiona, it looks like the guaranteed fresh date on these is for sometime in july, so i think by next march they won"t be very fresh. they may still be edible though.
christina, i felt the cupcake photos were a bit obscene, but maybe i"ll break them out one day.
and as far as the photo gallery of stupid photos of me goes, i"ll take it under consideration.

If you eat regular and these special Cheetos, is it like an Irish pride celebration in your mouth?
Posted by: Jen at May 14, 2004 3:21 PM
Hmmm, "an Irish pride celebration in your mouth." This is the first time I have had an overwhelming desire to be both Irish and male, take it back, just Irish.
...Soon, I will have my dream job writing for Playboy. I always wanted to be the person who was handsomely paid to write the little Playboy bunny bios. I would make men horny across the nation with just my oh so eloquent writing style.
