They’re no stranger to the snacking world, but the Cheetos brand is launching a new treat in a category you’ve never found them in before.

New Cheetos Pretzels kicks a traditional wheat pretzel up a notch by adding Cheetos dust in two flavors: Cheetos Pretzels Cheddar and Cheetos Pretzels Flamin’ Hot.

The pretzels are hitting stores nationwide now in celebration of National Pretzel Month in October. They’re priced at $2.49 for a 3-ounce bag and $5.69 for a 10-ounce bag.

While this is the first pretzel from Cheetos, this is far from the first time the brand has done some “cheetle-fying” — as they call it — of other foods.

There’s been everything from Cheetos popcorn to Cheetos Mac ‘N Cheese, which is still available in stores in three flavors. Made with “Chester’s Top-Secret Seasoning” and corkscrew pasta noodles inspired by his tail, flavors include Bold & Cheesy, Flamin’ Hot and Cheesy Jalapeño.

Some restaurants have even used Cheetos in their meals. Applebee’s once offered Cheetos wings and cheese bites and KFC had Cheetos chicken sandwiches on the menu in 2019.
