WASHINGTON (SBG) – Here's a combination you never saw coming.

Snack food brand Cheetos is rolling out the orange carpet for its newest creation, a line of mac 'n' cheese. These products will soon be available in three varieties -- Bold & Cheesy, Flamin' Hot and Cheesy Jalapeño -- and in both single box form and cup form.

According to the press release, they're all made with "authentic Cheetos cheesiness using Chester's Top-Secret Seasoning" and the corkscrew noodles are inspired by the mascot's curly cheetah tail.

"We've seen incredible culinary creativity from our Cheetos fans through the years, taking our product and using as an actual ingredient in recipes — whether at restaurants, or now more than ever, at home," said Rachel Ferdinando, SVP, CMO Frito-Lay North America. "Cheetos Mac 'n Cheese borrows that culinary inspiration to provide a mischievous mashup of an ordinary fan favorite.”

Fans can find the mac 'n cheese on Walmart shelves and online starting Aug. 8. It will be available at nationwide retailers sometime in 2021.
