Cheetos Brand Launches New Cheetos Mix-Ups Snack Mix - A Fun, First-of-its Kind Combination Of Unique Cheetos Flavors And Shapes All In One Bag

PLANO, Texas, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Chester Cheetah, the Cheetos brand spokescat, today unveiled the long-anticipated solution to an age-old dilemma that has rocked generations – choosing between puffed or crunchy, tangy or smooth, mellow or hot – with the launch of Cheetos Mix-Ups snack mix. As the first-ever shareable mix of four cheesy Cheetos snack flavors in unique shapes and wild colors all in one bag, Cheetos Mix-Ups snack mix stands as the latest in ground-breaking, earth-shattering snack innovations from the most playful snack brand in the world, and a leading brand from PepsiCo's Frito-Lay division.

In celebration of this momentous product launch, Chester has joined the world of Twitter for the first time as @ChesterCheetah. As an ode to the most shareable Cheetos snack yet, Chester is asking fans to gather around the kitchen table and share what they think of this newest creation via Twitter. Fan opinions are welcomed, but expect some playful banter with Chester in return.

  • Cheetos Crunchy Cheddar Flavored Snacks
  • Cheetos Puffs Double Cheddar Flavored Snacks

"Now with Cheetos Mix-Ups snack mix, there's no shortage of delicious cheesy flavors and textures to choose from all in one fun, shareable bag for the whole family. The fun doesn't stop there.
