Last night I tried my ummm...creation...while watching TV. The first bite had more kick than I expected and cleared my sinuses since I didn't know what to expect, having never had Flaming Hot Cheetos before. Then it felt like a steady background burn in your mouth and throat. I was trying to get acquainted with the strange umami flavor profile of Flaming Hot Cheetos with marshmallows, but then all of a sudden, I got this unexpected burst of really sweet fruitiness (of an unidentified fruit) and my brain was just really confused as to what was going on in my mouth. Then I realized I had gotten a bite with Swedish Fish, which I had forgot were in there as there weren't that many in the box so you couldn't really see them on the outside. With a sigh of relief and slightly more understanding, my brain then wondered, "...and why ARE
there Swedish Fish in there!?" I started cracking up at such thought, but in doing so, inhaled Flaming Hot Cheetos dust into the wrong pipe and started coughing too. While my body is trying to survive the taste test, my brain is again wondering, "Whyyyy do you do this to yourself??", which made me want to laugh even more. My friend thoughtfully paused the TV to ask me all startled, "OMG, are you okay??? Is it that bad?!
Wait, are you choking or laughing?" By now, there are streams of tears flooding from my eyes too, both from laughing and feeling Flaming Hot Cheetos in my airways. Laughing. Definitely laughing. I explained to her what happened and my friend asked the same million dollar question..."Why is there Swedish Fish in there?" l mean, I started with marrying Flaming Hot Cheetos to marshmallows. Does it really matter what I add to it afterwards? As if Swedish Fish was the only thing wrong with my decision making flowchart. In the end, I think I might have invented a snack even @helya
wouldn't stockpile. But the best part is it's done and...

YESSS! I'm going to be recognized as a Chef in the same light as @Mountain Mama
's more palatable muffins for this! Good luck to all participants! I look forward to being banned from all kitchens and grocery stores after this.
p.s. The Aussie in my FS didn't know what Swedish Fish were and thought I added some sort of pickled herring into the mix. Monsters.
