A petty officer stationed at Pearl Harbor opens a pack of Chee-tos, only to discover…
Chee-tos Development Manager Kevin Cogan’s job is to ponder such mysteries. He believes that some of the cheddar seasoning in the company’s machines built up and plopped out in big blob. That sneaked past inspectors.

The folks in Algona, Iowa — a one-movie-theater town with 5,970 residents — can hardly wait to get their hands on the giant Chee-to. They plan to shellac it, lay it on plush velvet and put it under Plexiglas.
