Shockingly, Marble Slab Creamery isn’t the first ice cream parlor to make a Flamin’ Hot Cheetos flavor.
In 2018, in Fountain Valley, California, Drill’d Ice Cream debuted a specialty ice cream dish called the Hot as Hell — which has proved popular enough that it’s still on the menu today.

Priced at $8.50, the ice cream comes in a cup or a cone.

“People are very wary of it at first, but the adventurers who come along, because nobody really eats ice cream themselves, usually have it,” he added.
“Someone tries and becomes addicted. It’s confusing on the palate, but it’s so good you can’t really stop,” he said.
