Cheetos Crunchy Buffalo flavor is available in stores just in time for the big game
Chicken wings have some competition on your football watch party snack spread.
Cheetos Crunchy Buffalo is the newest permanent addition to the chip brand’s lineup. The snack, which is now available in stores, combines the cheesiness of the classic chip with the tanginess and slight heat of Buffalo sauce.
A bowl of the Cheetos are meant to pay homage to chicken wings, combining the flavor of the bar food staple and the texture of a typical crunchy Cheetos. But the brand does not plan on replacing Buffalo chicken wings.
Frito-Lay senior vice president of marketing Tina Mahal said in a release, “While we know there's no beating out Buffalo wings as a favorite game day staple, Cheetos Crunchy Buffalo proves that being second-best can taste just as good."
The Cheetos Crunchy Buffalo flavor is available in grocery stores nationwide in 8.5 oz. bags.
Doritos is also adding new chip flavors in time for the Super Bowl.
Doritos launched four new Dinamita flavors earlier this month. Doritos Dinamita Flamin’ Hot Queso, Hot Honey Mustard, Smoky Chile Queso and Tangy Fiery Lime join the original Chile Limón flavor.
The rolled chips are the subject of the Doritos Super Bowl commercial this year, PEOPLE exclusively revealed on Jan. 10. Wednesday star Jenna Ortega is on the hunt to find Doritos new Dinamita rolled chips in the snack brand's Super Bowl commercial, which will air during the game on Feb. 11. PEOPLE got the exclusive first look at the 15-second teaser.
In the teaser, Ortega, 21, taps into her scream queen-talents. She walks down a grocery store aisle, looking around until she spots something that makes her eyes widen in fear.
“Oh no,” she says, looking fearfully at something out of the camera’s frame. “No!”
The camera swings around, showing an empty shelf where Doritos Dinamita should be.
“No, no, no, no, no, no, no,” she continues, her eyebrows furrowed and her hands stressfully grabbing her hair. Ortega grimaces and whispers, “This is not good,” while the date for Super Bowl LVIII pops up on the screen.
