Star Wars: Darth Vader & Yoda Cheetos

(Filed under: Business)

Star Wars Cheetos: Darth Vader Dark and Yoda GreenWhy am I even surprised any more? I just stumbled across another frightening Star Wars product tie in, this time it's Frito-Lay's Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith Cheetos. You just can't make this stuff up:

New this year, and for a limited time only, Frito-Lay is launching Star Wars-inspired Twisted Cheetos snacks that temporarily change the color of your tongue. Star Wars fans who bite into the ordinary looking Cheetos cheese flavored snacks will be surprised to discover that they are crunching on either "Darth Vader Dark" or "Yoda Green" colored Cheetos snacks. While Star Wars fans' mouths will mysteriously turn either black or green, fans from both sides of the Force will get the same dangerously cheesy taste.

The Darth Cheetah on the package is a hoot. At least he looks better than the M&M. How many more classic brand characters will get to dress up as Darth Vader? You could be next.
