Chip Fingers Keep Cheetos Dust off Your Fingertips

 |  |  |  |  April 11, 2021

If there’s one thing you can count on when you eat Cheetos, it’s that you’ll have orange cheese dust all over your fingers and anything they touch. So what’s a neat freak to do when it’s snack time? Chip Fingers to the rescue!

You know those silly fingerless gloves that were all the rage thanks to Madonna back in the 1980s? Well, Chip Fingers are basically what they did with all of the fingertips they cut off those gloves. Except these are made out of food-grade silicone instead of non-food-grade black lace. They come in a set of three, so you can grip your Cheetos without worry about your fingers turning orange. They work equally well with Doritos, BBQ potato chips, and other messy snack foods. You can grab a set for about 15 bucks on Amazon (affiliate link).

Also, did you know that Cheetos aren’t even orange because of the cheese? Nope. They get their trademark orange hue thanks to a petroleum-derived artificial color called FD&C Yellow 6, aka Sunset Yellow FCF. I learned that from a college research paper, I kid you not.
