Oh no, now you‘ve got me craving again - there have been several discussions about this on EF over the years, but you don‘t find it with a search for either Cheetos, Cheezies or Wotsits as good ones were somehow embedded into other threads or PMs.

I‘ve had no withdrawal symptoms since a full year, when looking for a dealer when my daughter moved out of home. But now I‘ll have to go back to ordering in bulk from Amazon.de because of you. This habit costs a fortune in Switzerland though. Otherwise you just have to take an extra suitcase to Canada, UK, US etc. (done that too)

Re: Cheetossssssssss

This made me wonder about some other popular snacks.

So I googled a bit and found ninelife.ch .. Seems to have loads of snacks.

BUT : Look at the prices.. WTF is that all about??

Cheetos for example 75eur

346 Eur for a packet of hot dogs

Some kind of joke site??

Tried this one, it works. Not the quickest processing, but within their promised delivery time frame.

These guys are quicker, but they sell European Cheetos, which many claim to taste differently. Not pretending to be a snack connoisseur myself, since all puffed corn products have a taste and texture of a USPS parcel filler for me.

Ubuy ships directly from US, but it takes up to 2 weeks

Just pop over to Thraki in Schlieren ZH and you will find Cheetos + many Greek snacks - judging by the nickname I think you'll enjoy.

Re: Cheetossssssssss

They don't seem to be listed on the website but I am pretty sure I have seen them in the Nyon American market:

https://www.americanmarket.ch/

Might be worth contacting them if they can ship to you in Zug.

Though a couple of years ago, I also saw them at the American shop in Nyon.

Re: Cheetossssssssss

Loeb here in Bern sells Doritos ... that is my version of Cheetos, especially nacho cheese. Unfortunately my guts simply can't handle that kind of food anymore ...

Re: Cheetossssssssss

If you want to scratch the itch without breaking the bank (sadly, also without orange fingers), these are available in every French supermarket and are a pretty good substitute:

The last Cheetos stick, bruh

Now, from the looks of it, Candy24 looks to have the biggest collection (although many unavailable atm), claiming also to be made in USA. Price is black market rate of course...

@ZuriRollt: Still doing the suitcase smuggling method, although they tend to get broken into little pieces. Hard trade-off.
@Don Molina: Cheers!
@ennui: as aforementioned, address? Passcode?
@Susie-Q: same, but taking 30' earlier a lansoprazole works

Really, Amazon.de has the best selection - but they are incredibly expensive

Re: Cheetossssssssss

Up until the beginning of the pandemic, there was a site by the name of Junkfood.ch (or something) that had a huge selection of Cheetos and other snacks as well as pancake and brownie mixes, etc. with really good prices. I use to order my brown sugar from there as well. But for some reason they closed down their site a year ago. (Does anyone know why?). It looks like they were based in Lucens, Switzerland.

Anyways... After doing a quick Google search for "Cheetos kaufen Schweiz," I found Cheetos on this site:

https://www.myamericanmarket.com/us/...hoCtCAQAvD_BwE

I've ordered from myamericanmarket.com before, and they're legit. I can't remember how long it took for the order to arrive, but apparently they're based in Toulouse, France.

Did the Customs (Zoll) charge you anything or give you any trouble?
