I thought everybody knew about this. I knew about it for over a month.

I was at the YOTF exhibit in San Diego last month, and they gave out pre-release bags of Cheesy Poofs there (some of which ended up selling for over 10 bucks on eBay). People got trampled over when they were just tossing bags into the crowd. They were good...I mean, okay for what they are, but they tasted an awful lot like some cheese puff snack I had quite a while back; the same kind you can buy in stores already. I mean, they're made by Frito-Lay and they're only making a limited run of 1,500,000 bags. I didn't think they were going to create a special product formula for it. What you're paying for is the packaging, pretty much.

But I'm not saying they weren't good.

We knew it was this month, just not which day of the month.

Dammit, I realized I messed the quote up in the thread title slightly. Will, can you delete the word "some" from the thread title?

Lianne - "You want some cheesy poofs, too?"
Fatass - "Yeah, I want cheesy poofs."

I'll bet the actual snack is just those Cheetos Puffs; the ones where you're paying for cheese-flavored packing peanuts. It's a Frito-Lay product.

You could do it yourself, I believe, but I'll fix it and all the replies.

Yeah, I've been thinking that too. I prefer the crunchy ones to the puffs though. They've always looked like cheeze balls on the show though, so I thought we'd be getting those instead. :/

Thanks, Will; much better.

That's right, Cheesy Poofs are in ball form. So they should have these in 'em:

By the way, Googling for images of "cheetos balls" returns this gem:

That Cheeto needs to lay off the HGH.

um... Yes? They're just gonna essentially be puffed Cheetos.

Does anybody still make cheezballs anymore? Well other than Utz. I just want a nice 16oz can/bag rather than a 55 gallon jug.

Back when the show was new, I remember seeing boxes of Cheesy Poofs in places like Spencer Gifts and such, but I heard they tasted terrible, not at all like the Cheetos.

Anyone else remember seeing that?

Here's hoping they get it right this time.

I remember them, and bought four boxes. I still have the boxes. :) I scanned the back panels in because they had the four boys there, and spliced the scans together.
This is the result

And yes, I ate the giant cheese puffs that were in there. They weren't Cheetos, that's for sure.
