[Grocery Review] Cheetos Mighty Zingers: Ragin’ Cajun & Tangy Ranch


Purchased at: Kroger
Price: $2.39
Yield: About 10 servings

Throwing two different flavors into a single bag and calling it a day is certainly nothing new, as Doritos has been doing it forever with their Collisions line of chips. For Cheetos however, the idea of any flavor of snack crisp other than cheese or some variable of it seems ludicrous. That’s why New Cheetos Mighty Zingers caught my eye when they first came out some number of months ago. Sadly, they’ve been sitting in my locker at work ever since.

Luckily for you guys, I found them today (along with probably three other bags of chips, a box of cereal, some instant oatmeal, a bottle of honey, and a pair of women’s panties) and decided it was high time to give them a review. I really wish I could think of some clever joke to tell you right now, and throw a prominent “ZING!!!” onto the end of it, but unfortunately all I’ve got is a knock knock joke. Want to hear it? Read on, hungry reader.

Knock knock

I eat mop

EWWW!!! That’s gross! I can’t believe you eat your own poo!


Pretty good, huh?

Anyway, Cheetos Mighty Zingers are a unique product from Chester. They come in a few flavors, but I chose the Ragin’ Cajun and Tangy Ranch, because I was in the mood for something a little bit spicy. I tore open the bag and found that, much to my surprise, the long Cheetos shapes I’m used to have been replaced with smaller, curd-like ones. This makes sense, because it would be hard to pop a mouthful or traditional, elongated Cheetos into your mouth and get the full effect of the dual flavors.

Individually, the two flavors are hit and miss, with Ragin’ Cajun being the hit. It’s spicy and delicious. The Tangy Ranch flavor? Not so much. It tastes more like sour cream really, and is pretty weak overall. I couldn’t imagine eating an entire bag of Tangy Ranch Cheetos.

However, when you the two flavors at once their flavors melt together in your mouth with a perfectly harmonious cry of delight and love. The spicy and cool flavors conflict with each other to create an outstanding flavorgasm in your mouth, and as you swallow you feel the heat running down your throat, immediately cooled by the chilly ranch.

It really is quite impressive how delicious they are when combined. Sorry I used the word flavorgasm in my previous paragraph.

Does it Hit the Spot?

Oh yeah, baby. Chester hit the nail on the head with this one. The small, curd-like Cheetos work perfectly for getting a mouthful at a time, combining flavors to work together as they were designed to do. Doritos Collisions are much more difficult to properly enjoy, simply because it’s a bit of a struggle to fit a sufficient amount of chips into your mouth at once. I definitely recommend giving Mighty Zingers a shot, either this flavor or any other. I’m sure none of them are too bad after trying these delicious snacks.
