How Were Cheese Puffs Made?

Cheetos Puffs Cheese Flavored Snacks, believe it or not, are the result of an accidental creation. Back in Wisconsin in 1935, a feed factory was trying to clean their corn grinder machinery by putting moist corn into the grinder. To the surprise of the workers at the factory, the moist corn was ground into airy, puffy blobs of corn. And so was invented the first rendition of corn puffs.

However, when Cheetos were invented in 1948, they added their own flair to the corn puff with their classic, cheesy seasoning. Thus the cheese puff became popularized in the form of Cheetos Puffs. But the puffs were not introduced by Cheetos right away. Cheetos Puffs were not introduced until 1971, when they were called Cheetos Puffies. Since 1971, Cheetos Puffs have been a household go-to for a fluffy, cheesy snack. And then in 1999, Cheetos Puffs gained some spice in a new variety called Flamin' Hot Cheetos Puffs.

Was Chester Cheetah Always The Mascot?

Interestingly enough, Chester has not always been the Cheetos mascot. In 1971, Cheetos introduced the Cheetos Mouse as the brand's mascot. The Mouse lasted as the brand's mascot until the late 70s. Not until the mid 80s did Cheetos introduce Chester, the charming cheetah that is now a recognizable face for the brand all around the world. Starring in commercials, toy lines, video games and even featuring his own Twitter account, Chester the Cheetah has become a household favorite.

Made With Real Cheese

Cheetos Puffs Cheese Flavored Snacks are, in fact, made with real cheese. The puffs are seasoned with a delicious, cheesy seasoning made from real cheddar cheese. Also, Cheetos Puffs come in a conveniently large bag that makes them perfect for sharing with your family and friends.
