Today I was heading home with Mira and we stopped by 7-Eleven for a snack. We were in the savory aisle when we spied this.
Yes, look closer...
Turn Thy Tounge Shrek Green!
This was impossible to resist so we picked up a couple bags and headed home. Food that changes the color of your body simply must be tested.
Taking a look, they look like normal Cheetos with the unnatural orange color and crumple shaped. Upon close examination, there is no hint of green.
Zoe snapped one in half and we saw a normal Cheetos color with no greeness.
So, into the mouth went the Cheetos.
Sure enough, Zoe's tongue was green after just 4-5 Cheetos.
I ate a half dozen and smushed them around my mouth. Again, the green tongue was in evidence. The Green Shrek Cheetos do turn thy tongue green!
We couldn't stop at this and had to get Piper the dog involved. We gave her a small bowl of Cheetos. She looked up at me as if to say, "This is a trap, right?"
Of course it was a trap, as I wrestled with the dog, braving her fangs, to get a photo of her green tongue. The Cheetos worked on the dog as well!
Zoe figured out that it was water activating the hidden green dye. Here you can see a couple of Cheetos floating in water with the green dye leaking out.
Well done Cheetos! The girls and I love them.Posted by michael at June 04, 2007 08:54 PM
