PLANO, Texas, June 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Chester Cheetah's boss is heading out of town for the season and while the boss is away, the Cheetah will play. Everyone's favorite spokes-cheetah has "borrowed" keys to the boss' fabulous beach house and has hidden them in two specially marked bags of Cheetos Mix-Ups Flamin' Hot & Cheezy, Cheetos Flamin' Hot Crunchy, Cheetos Puffs or Cheetos Crunchy for two lucky families to find. Once a key is found, all the finder needs to do is follow the enclosed instructions to return the key to the Cheetos brand, one of the flagship brands from PepsiCo's Frito-Lay division. With the winning keys, doors to the beach house will be unlocked so each lucky finder can begin their own flamin' hot vacation for five nights and six flamin' hot days in either San Diego, Calif.; Laguna Beach, Calif. or Destin, Fla.
