Mac n’ Cheetos is Back! The Grocery Freezer Aisle Just Got Dangerously Cheesy!

 
Oct 04, 2017

PLANO, Texas (October 4, 2017) –Cheetos, one of the marquee brands from PepsiCo's Frito-Lay division, has announced the nationwide availability of the fan-favorite snack Mac n’ Cheetos. The snack that created fan frenzies with previous limited-time releases is now available in freezer aisles at major retailers across the country.

Mac n’ Cheetos offers fans the mouthwatering combination of dangerously cheesy Cheetos flavor on the outside and creamy mac n’ cheese on the inside – two great tastes rolled into one incredible snack. Ready after just minutes in a conventional or toaster oven, snack fans can cook and enjoy the delicious goodness of Mac n' Cheetos anytime.

“We are excited to give the devoted fans of Mac n’ Cheetos the opportunity to enjoy Mac n’ Cheetos alongside the Cheetos classics sold at national retailers,” said Asif Hirji, senior director of marketing innovation, Frito-Lay North America. “With the release of Mac n’ Cheetos for at-home consumption, fans now have the ability to up their snacking game with this crowd-pleasing favorite.”

To celebrate the debut of Mac n’ Cheetos in your neighborhood grocer, Cheetos is calling all super fans to make a #DeliciousDedication to their Mac n’ Cheetos snack. Cheetos is teaming up with hilariously mischievous brand fan Trey Kennedy to rally Mac n’ Cheetos’ biggest devotees to make grandiose dedications to their Mac n’ Cheetos for the chance to win the ultimate prize: a year’s supply of Mac n’ Cheetos. Fans can enter by sharing a video declaring their love for Mac n’ Cheetos on either Twitter or Instagram, tagging @ChesterCheetah and/or @cheetos with #DeliciousDedication and #sweepstakes. The ways fans can show their love is endless - for example, they can give a shout out to their halftime Mac n’ Cheetos snack after their team’s big come-from-behind win or they can dedicate their favorite song to their Mac n’ Cheetos before taking a bite.

Mac n’ Cheetos comes in two flavor-packed varieties: Mac n’ Cheetos Creamy Cheddar Mac & Cheese and Mac n' Cheetos Flamin' Hot Mac & Cheese Snacks, and is available in the freezer aisle at major grocery retailers nationwide (MSRP: $4.98 for a 14.4 oz. box).
