Cheetos are "one of the most marvelously constructed foods on the planet, in terms of pure pleasure," argued food scientist Steven Witherly in a recent New York Times article on addictive junk food.

The two bags will be available in stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $3.49 (8.75 ounces) and $1.49 (3.75 ounces) respectively.
