Flamin' Hots are banned

flaminhotI assume you are a fan of Cheetos such as myself.  I mean the crunchy kind, not the puffy kind.  The puffy ones are lame, the crunchy are awesome.

I've been searching for some time for the Flamin' Hot variety.  Reidsville's Lowes grocery certainly doesn't stock them.  Lowes doesn't even carry the Jalapeno Cheddar Cheetos.  All you can find at Lowes is the regular crunchy Cheetos.

You can read about Flamin' Hot Cheetos all over the web.  They got a name for themselves when they were banned by several school districts around the country.  It seems little kids are addicted to them and teachers are upset.  Flamin' Hots make the kids fingers greasy and stained.  The stains end up on the school's fine classroom furniture.  Nothing upsets a teacher like orange stains on a desk.

I can report Flamin' Hots are indeed hot.  I'm don't know why kids are addicted to them.  But I do  know why Lowes doesn't stock's because they've all been shipped to Walmart.  You can't swing a dead cat without hitting a bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetos  at Walmart.

At this point I should mention Walmart grocery is killing Lowes grocery.  The folks who work at Lowes are saying some major changes are coming soon.  Lower prices at Lowes are part of the upcoming plan.  Right now Walmart's prices are about two-thirds of Lowes prices.  Walmart's gocery is crawling with customers while Lowes is definitely in a slump.  My wife is even considering becoming a Walmart grocery shopper, although she refuses to buy meat at Walmart.

Buy your Cheetos at Walmart, but buy your meat elsewhere.
