What do you get when you take an already unhealthy snack and blast it with a blizzard of spicy seasoning?

Flamin' Hot Cheetos.

It's easy to munch down a 1-ounce bag of these things without batting an eye, and they somehow manage to cram 160 calories, 250 mg of sodium and 11 grams of fat into that single ounce.

With no valuable nutrients to speak of, these are exactly the kind of snacks that leads to mindless munching.

Of course, standard Cheetos aren't much better.
