Flamin' Hot Cheetos is one of those snacks you're either going to love, or won't want anywhere near you. Like 'em or hate 'em, though, you can probably still agree that people tend to make some pretty... strange things with them.

Here are just some of the times where people have created culinary monstrosities using Flamin' Hot Cheetos. I think only the bravest of us all would be willing to try these.

Cheeto Kimchi Nachos.

That's a mouthful in more ways than one. Like... a lot is going on here, and I don't really know how to feel about it. Other than pure terror of course.

Flamin' Hot Cheetos... Eggnog?

I've heard of spice eggnog, but not spicy eggnog. Something about this seems horrifying. On the plus side, though, all the cream in there will probably keep the spice levels to a minimum.

I won't lie, the design of the cake is straight fire (pun totally intended). But... Flamin' Hot Cheetos is probably the last thing I'd want anywhere near my cake... or any dessert, for that matter. It just seems wrong for some reason.

That time Cheetos and KFC did this...

I know for a fact that there's a group of people out there who probably went crazy for this Cheetos chicken sandwich. I am not part of that group of people. They can keep their Hot Cheetos and fried chicken sandwiches.

This Flamin' Hot Cheetos hot dog.

There's a lot going on here, and all of it is absolutely frightening. The fact that they put jalapenos on top to make it a little extra spicy is kind of funny to me, though. Like, at this point, why not?

The Cheeto-rrito.

I have to admit, putting tortilla chips in a burrito isn't bad. It makes it a little crunchy, which is nice.

But Flamin' Hot Cheetos... yeah, I don't know how I'd feel about someone serving me something like this.

Hot chocolate, now with more heat.

Chocolate and Cheetos seem like polar opposites. The Flamin' Hot variety especially feels like something that shouldn't be anywhere near chocolate. And yet...

Well, there's something for everyone out there.

These Cheetos sandwich creations.

Okay, so that first PB&J isn't a Flamin' Hot creation, but I still shudder at the idea of putting any kind of Cheeto in your sandwich. The other images in this post are... equally as frightening.

Cheetos beer cheese.

Okay... this one has me a little curious. Like, I probably still wouldn't go out and try to make it. But maybe just this once, a Flamin' Hot Cheetos creation isn't as terrifying as it could be.

Flamin' Hot Cheetos bagel.

That's right, it's a thing. As if regular bagels weren't unhealthy enough, right?

Seriously, though, this looks like it could work. I need someone to go out and get one, and then tell me how it tastes.

Flamin' Hot Cheetos burgers? How about sliders instead?

Sure, a slider is just a tiny burger. But something about specifically making sliders with Flamin' Hot Cheetos seems really odd to me. The lengths people will go to make trendy food, I swear.

Cheetos is totally trolling us with this:

No, this isn't a real treat. But let's face it, somebody is probably going to make Flamin' Hot Cheetos sorbet at one point. That's how far we've strayed from the light.

This donut made with mac n' cheese and Cheetos.

This one had me in tears. This is it. This is as far as I can go down this horrifying Flamin' Hot Cheetos rabbit hole.

Not really. I still have a few more creations to cry over.

Whatever this is.

It looks like an incredibly stacked Flamin' Hot fried chicken sandwich.

I have two questions. First: How do you eat it? And second: Why would you want to?

Flamin' Hot taco shells because why not.

Visually, those red taco shells look stunning. But I can't imagine ever wanting to try eating a hard-shell taco made out of Cheetos, Flamin' Hot or otherwise.

Yogurtland... why this?

It's been a good couple years since Yogurtland unveiled this incredibly... adventurous combination, but I haven't forgotten. I do kind of wonder if it was any good, though.

Um... this.

I have no clue what's going on here. Flamin' Hot Cheetos, mac n' cheese balls... corn? And they're all smothered in even more cheese. Just looking at it is making my blood pressure rise, and not because it's making me mad.

Corn on a stick, featuring Flamin' Hot Cheetos, of course.

Because of course it's a thing. I've decided I'm not going to complain this time. I'm just going to accept it for what it is, and go cry in a corner or something.

Chocolate, marshmallows, graham crackers, and... Cheetos?

I never thought I'd ever see the words "Flamin' Hot Cheetos" and "s'mores" in the same sentence, but there really is a first for everything. I... I'm really trying not to lose my mind at this point.

And finally... la piece de resistance.

This is exactly what it looks like. It's exactly what it looks like and it's terrifying. I really don't want to say it, but I have to.

It's a Flamin' Hot Cheetos encrusted turkey.

Well, at least no one can complain that this turkey is bland.
