    Do you consider Cheetos chips???? If not, what are they? I am having a debate with a friend of mine, just thought I would see what all you thought.

    I'd say no. But I guess there is no real definition. I would say a cheeto is puffed corn. I would say a chip needs to be flat and have a "chipped" off of something appearance, hence the name "chip".

    I'd say no also. I call them corn curls.

    Cheetos are an extruded, cut, and fried product unlike chips which are sliced and fried.
    Now if you throw Pringles into the mix (which are extruded, sliced, and fried) Cheetos would be in their category.

    This is hilarious. So, if they aren't a chip, what are they? They aren't a cracker.

    They're closely related to the Cheesy Poof, ask Cartman what they are.

    They're in the "Crinkly-Bags-That-You-Can't-Open-Quietly" Aisle.

    I guess I've always just called them Cheetos.

    I know Dictionary.com isn't the most accurate always, but I liked this one for chip:

    8.something dried up or without flavor.

    Here is the more relevant one:

    2.a very thin slice or small piece of food, candy, etc.:

    Per wikipedia:

    Cheetos are a crunchy, cheese-flavored cornmeal snack made by Frito-Lay.

    Yes, but IMO they are flavored tortilla chips.
