Cheadle, Alberta, Canada is the home of a new cheesy statue.
Cheetos revealed its 17-foot tall “Cheetle Hand Statue” on Oct. 4, part of the brand’s effort to popularize the word “Cheetle.” In a press release announcing the statue, Cheetos cited Dictionary.com’s definition of the term as “the brand name for the powdery residue that gets on your fingertips while eating the savory (sic) cheese snack, Cheetos.”
Cheetos released a video on its Twitter account back in 2020 informing lovers of the cheesy snack that the powder left on their hands after eating it was not “Cheetos dust, it’s called Cheetle.” The senior marketing director at PepsiCo Foods Canada said: “We’re excited to be celebrating Cheetle and Canadians’ cheesy, Cheetle-dusted fingertips on such a grand scale and in such a uniquely mischievous way.”
“Cheadle is proud to be home to the Cheetle Hand Statue. Where else could the Cheetos brand honor the iconic Cheetle, if not here,” said lkocal resident James Gosteli.
The statue will be available for anyone to view until Nov. 4. You can see it here, too!
