EL PASO, Texas (KFOX14/CBS4) — The Chihuahuas are turning up the heat.
The team partnered with PepsiCo and Frito-Lay, to bring a night of CHEETOS FLAMIN’ HOT fun to Southwest University Park when the Chihuahuas take on the Salt Lake Bees.
The night includes an autographed jersey auction, an appearance from CHESTER CHEETAH, concessions items featuring CHEETOS FLAMIN’ HOT Cheese Flavored Snacks, a Fireworks Spectacular choreographed to hot & spicy music, and free samples of CHEETOS Popcorn (Cheddar, FLAMIN’ HOT, and Cheddar Jalapeño) upon exit, while supplies last.
The jersey features an orange and yellow bodice with a red flamed stripe across the chest and the Chihuahuas word mark in yellow, all made to look like the CHEETOS Crunchy FLAMIN’ HOT Cheese Flavored Snacks bag.
The sleeves are black and feature the CHEETOS orange “Cheetle” dust prints on the left sleeve.
