Are you a fan of Cheetos and wish you could have scored reservations to dine at The Spotted Cheetah in NYC? If so, don’t be too disappointed. Yes, Grubstreet reported that New York’s Cheetos Pop-Up restaurant currently has a 1,000-person wait list which shows that it’s definitely popular… However, we have plenty of reasons to tell you why you’re better off not eating the Spicy Cheetos Nachos, the Cheetos Sweetos Crusted Cheesecake or any other menu item served at the Cheetos pop-up restaurant.
We live in a world where, unfortunately, we need to question what’s in our food. Cheetos is no exception. All of the Cheetos products contain a plethora of controversial ingredients, like artificial coloring, yellow 6, which is responsible for staining your fingers bright orange. These harmful ingredients are not good for your body or your family’s, and that’s why at FoodFacts we believe it is so important you to be aware of exactly what’s in the foods you’re eating every day.
Below, we’ve listed several Cheetos products and the controversial ingredients each one contains. This information is taken from our FoodFacts app, which can show you each product’s complete list of the ingredients as well as its nutritional information. Our app also shows the food score we’ve given to each product (ranging from an A to an F), which is determined by those two factors. Unsurprisingly, all of these Cheetos products below received the lowest score in our grading system, an F, because they contain so many harmful ingredients. Take a look!

Be Aware Of What’s Really In All Of The Foods You & Your Family Are Eating
FoodFacts was created after our founder, Stan Rak, was with his grandson one afternoon and noticed that his grandon’s fingers were stained with orange after he ate a puffed cheese snack. From there, he questioned what was in the snacks and foods his family was eating every day and wanted to investigate. After doing extensive research, Stan decided to make it his mission to inform consumers about what is really in the foods we are all eating and as a result, FoodFacts was born!
So whether it’s Cheetos or any other kind of food product, we encourage you to use our FoodFacts app as a tool to help you make informed decisions about what’s in different food products and if you should eat them. We want to help you you understand how foods filled with harmful ingredients can negatively affect your body, and how foods with wholesome ingredients can positively affect your body. When you realize what’s in the foods you’re eating, you can make healthy changes to you and your family’s diet and be on your way to living a happier life.Read more
