Hot Cheeto Shortage in WA Leads to Discovery of 3 Yakima Hidden Gems
You might run into a road block if you are trying to buy any Hot Cheetos right now because there is a Hot Cheeto shortage in Washington and other parts of the country. Why are they in a shortage? Because of alleged "supply chain disruptions"; we are sure is going to be the standard answer. Supply Chain disruptions my buns! We've been dealing with supposed disruptions for the past 3 years. I don't buy it, pun not intended. This social media search for spicy food dishes with Hot Cheetos in them led to a group discovery of 3 Yakima hidden gems, yes, there are three places in town that you can go to get your savory peppery fix!
Washington has an obsession with Flaming Hot Cheetos and those spicy Takis corn chips. It's no hidden secret that kids love Takis and hot Cheetos and parents give in to buying them for their kids all the time.
You might not even been aware of this Hot Cheeto shortage in Washington if it weren't for social media or if you don't have young kids living in your home. I personally had no idea about this but saw someone in a private Facebook group mention that they were desperately searching for a restaurant open on Sundays that served Hot Cheetos dishes. I didn't even know that Hot Cheeto dishes was a thing, I am so behind the times. My daughter usually asks me to buy her a bag of Takis when I go grocery shopping but she has been visiting her grandma so it has been a while since she's asked me.
What tends to happen is that a child will start begging for hot Cheetos and then the parent will taste test it to see what all the fuss is about. The next thing you know, parents are secretly craving those strong tangy chips, too.
3.) Cosmic Wings Restaurant
1505 E Washington Ave
It might say Cosmic Wings on the website but when you look at the address you'll notice that it's the same place as Applebee's Grill + Bar in Union Gap! Ghost Kitchens are what they are calling it. Anyway, you can order Boneless Chicken Wings, Fried Cheetos Bites, and regular bone-in wings covered in Hot Cheetos crumbles. Yes, they are open on Sundays, too!
