Sorry, Chester Cheetah — this Cheetos-encrusted bagel makes me want to hurl

If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, then literally no one should eat this Flamin' Hot Cheetos bagel.

I can't imagine a worse start to the day than a mouthful of radioactive red Cheetos dust. Flamin' Hot Cheetos are high in fat and sodium (and let's be real, no one's sticking to the suggested serving size of 1 ounce) and are loaded with artificial colors and MSG for good measure. There were even reports last year of kids being sent to the ER with gastritis after eating them, and they're now banned in many schools. Yum?

I mean, when it comes to loving all things cheesy and crunchy, I get it. This is coming from a girl who would have mainlined Doritos nacho cheese powder a few years ago if given the chance. But after coming down with incurable heartburn (yay, adulthood!), I cut this type of food from my diet. I can understand indulging every once in a while, but do we really need to crush up the nastiest, most unhealthy of convenience store junk foods and sprinkle them willy-nilly on every meal?

Well, the internet apparently thinks so. Here are five more Flamin' Hot Cheetos-flavored foods no one should want... and yet so, so many people do.

1. Flamin' Hot Cheetos cheeseburger

Because a regular cheeseburger isn't bad enough...

2. Flamin' Hot Cheetos Rice Krispies Treats

I'm a fan of sweet and salty desserts, but these Rice Krispies Treats might be taking this a little (way too) far.

3. Flamin' Hot sushi roll

At once predictable (people will put anything into mac & cheese) and alarming.

5. And last but not least, literally the saddest meal of all time

Please let me make lunch for you next time.

Am I overreacting? Or is eating Cheetos for breakfast taking things too far?
