Discontinued Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Asteroids Are Making A Comeback

By Malia Wooten

We’re having a millennial moment!

Remember Asteroids? Delicious little red balls packed in a tall can which also assisted as a serving cup. If you’re old enough to recall, the beloved 2000s snack was a fan favorite for thousands of people across the nation during the craze of the Go Snacks line of “portable snacks”. A representative for Cheetos confirmed to The Daily Meal that “Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Asteroids are returning as the same product fans remember and love with fun new packaging.”

Chester Cheetah let news of the drop slip in a video posted on social media. While rapping he explains that he’s not too happy about all the buzz Spicy Hot Doritos commercials are creating.

If your mouth is watering right now, you may also be interested in the other upcoming products in the Flavors Shots line-up. Expect to see Doritos Fiery Habanero Triangles, Doritos Nacho Cheese Nuts, and Doritos Flamin’ Hot Nacho Nuts alongside this spicy comeback ball-shaped chips.
