Trader Joe’s Just Made Its Own Flamin’ Hot Cheetos & They’re Healthier, Too

Trending Now


Snack fans–: run, don’t walk to your favorite neighborhood market and grab the Trader Joe’s version of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. The original fan favorite—Trader Joe’s Baked Cheese Crunchies—has gone spicy and we can’t wait to get our hands on them.

The new gluten-free Spicy Cheese Crunchies are baked to crispy perfection and coated in “magical spicy cheese dust” that’s made with real cheese and spices. No artificial colors or flavors here!

The hot and spicy new snacks are made from cornmeal and are perfect for enjoying a la carte, or on top of your fave salad. (Hey, we don’t judge here.) One serving is only 130 calories and has just 6 grams of fat, making the Trader Joe’s version a lil’ more “healthy” than some of its competitors. (Sorry, Chester Cheetah.)

As always, you can snag a bag from your Trader Joe’s for quite a steal–– a6.5-ounce bag is only $1.99! That’s magical spicy cheese dust-covered finger-licking good!
