Chester Cheetah will always go to the movies with you—if you know where to look.
Regal Cinemas and Frito Lay announced the orange-finger inducing snack debuts Dec. 15.
“We’re excited to give moviegoers a chance to experience Cheetos in an unexpected and delicious new way through our first national theater partnership,” Sean Mathews, director of marketing at Frito-Lay North America, said in a press release. “Cheetos and popcorn are the ultimate movie snack combination, and Regal Cinemas is the perfect partner to launch Cheetos Popcorn nationally.”
The “dangerously cheesy” snack has previously been available at other venues across the country, but this announcement marks a nation-wide release.
“Cheetos Popcorn is our gift to Regal fans enjoying their favorite movie this holiday season,” said John Curry, senior vice-president of foodservice, Regal Cinemas. “We are thrilled to partner with an iconic brand like Cheetos to deliver blockbuster snack choices to moviegoers.”
Cheetos Popcorn features light, airy Regal popcorn paired with warm, cheesy Cheetos flavor and Crunchy Cheetos to create “the perfect cinema snack.”
The crunchy concession is available in 32 oz. cups at participating Regal Cinemas nationwide beginning Friday.
