The popular cheese snack that leaves orange dust on your fingers every time you stick your hand into the bag includes artificial flavors and colorants.

They’re also incredibly addictive.

Food scientist Steven Witherly told The New York Times in 2013 that the cheese puff’s ability to quickly dissolve in your mouth was part of the problem. “It’s called vanishing caloric density.
