I rarely buy junk food, but after an American friend of mine recommended me BBQ Cheetos, eating BBQ Cheetos has become habitual.

Because BBQ Cheetos have a distinct, savory taste and are absolutely delicious, I highly recommend them! Every time I buy them, I can't stop eating them until they're gone. It's a cheap addiction!

I poured a small portion of the Cheetos from the bag into a glass bowl. There are many more left in the bag.

Note that there are a few different sizes of BBQ Cheetos for sale and all are priced differently.

I have seen BBQ Cheetos sold in 3 different sizes: 75g (2.65oz), 98g (3.46oz), and 135g (4.76oz).

At some supermarkets in Japan, they cost between 74 and 99 yen, including 8% tax.

The friend who recommended me BBQ Cheetos ordered them from a website called Napa Japan. Five bags were about $20 USD, including shipping. They look to be more expensive now. Sometimes other websites, such as Japan Haul and OMGJapan have them for sale, but they are all sold out currently.

He told me that some Asian grocery stores sell BBQ Cheetos in the US, but there are the Korean version. It is too sweet and different taste from Japanese BBQ Cheetos.
