Wait, There's a Name for Cheetos Dust?

Did you know that the Cheetos powder that sticks to your fingertips has a name? That regret-inducing dust is called Cheetle. And Dictionary.com actually traced the entire history of the word. "Cheedle" was coined by comedian Rich Hall in the '80s, becoming "Cheetle" by the mid-2000s. And somewhere along the way, the Cheetos brand embraced the word. Because they've using it in tweets since at least 2015. The brand is playing up the term because their new popcorn is covered in the stuff. So when you grab a bag of that new popcorn, make sure you have something to wipe the cheetle off your hands.
