Mountain Dew-flavored Cheetos are the nerdiest food ever invented

Illustration for article titled Mountain Dew-flavored Cheetos are the nerdiest food ever invented

Japan — because of course, Japan, obviously has combined Cheetos the snack food with Mountain Dew the beverage to create a lemon-lime snack food that will revolutionize the way gamers will eat junk food while pretending to be a half-elf paladin.


I kid because I love; seriously, if this insanity were somehow available in the States I would buy it, join a role-playing game session, bring it, and eat it, all on mere principle. It may taste like salty battery acid for all I care; I MUST HAVE IT, and I must eat it in the proximity of some kind of character sheet. The only way this thing could be better is if it came with a free 1d20 in every carton.

You can order them at for a mere $3.50 per bag. Sure, that seems a lot for a snack-size back of possibly radioactive puffed cornmeal, but can you really put a price on perfection?
