Kim Kardashian on why she had to switch from regular Cheetos to the white cheddar variety

Kim Kardashian admitted on Friday that she had to switch from regular Cheetos to the white cheddar variety to cut down on orange messes in her pristine white home.  

The 41-year-old reality star famously — or infamously, depending on one’s taste — decorated her entire $60 million Calabasas mansion in minimalist white decor and furniture.

That spotless, colorless aesthetic even extends to her kitchen and pantry — which is why, she said on Live with Kelly and Ryan this morning, she had to swap regular Cheetos for white cheddar ones.

Wait, you have white in your kitchen. Don't you guys throw food like we do?' Kelly asked her. 'We could never have white anything in our house'

Kim spoke to Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest remotely from her own home, and the hosts were quick to comment on her environment — with Ryan calling it ‘very zen’ and Kelly calling it a ‘creamy dream.’

“Thank you,’ Kim replied. ‘This is my kitchen. I’m in my kitchen praying that my kids just don’t run in and ruin this. They’re all just locked in the other room.’

‘Thank God for white cheddar Cheetos instead of the orange Cheetos. I had to switch,’ Kim answered. 

It’s unclear how serious Kim was being about the switch to white cheddar, since her she and her children have been photographed with regular orange Cheetos.

In 2019, Khloe shared a photo of her own daughter, True, alongside Kim's daughter Chicago, While True ate from a bag of Veggie Straws, Chicago munched from a bag of Cheetos puffs

In 2019, her sister Khloe shared a photo of her own daughter, True, alongside Kim’s daughter Chicago, While True ate from a bag of Veggie Straws, Chicago munched from a bag of Cheetos puffs.

‘Chi: I heard my mama say “vacation calories don’t count. True: Don’t tell me twice Chi,’ Khloe wrote at the time — sparking some backlash from critics who accused her of pushing diet culture on toddlers.

Kim may have switched since then, though recent photos of her pantry shared on her her sister Kourtney’s site, Poosh, do show one potentially messy snack: BBQ potato chips.

The rest of the snacks, however, to appear to be free of dyes that could stain.   

The pantry — which has two massive refrigerators and a freezer — has endless snack options, with each one immaculately stored in its own jar or bin.

Poosh had first shared photos of Kim’s pantry last year, explaining that she and Kanye ‘designed the walk-in food storage area to fit their home’s wabi-sabi aesthetic.’ 

‘Everything is at a reachable level so the kids can easily go in and grab their favorite snacks,’ the site said.

‘All the cups, plates, and bowls are custom ceramic. Even the glass jars (which are from The Container Store) have custom lids to blend in nicely with the lighter wood throughout the house. 

‘The snacks, sprinkles, and tea essentials are all perfectly lined up so everything is visible and the family can quickly see what’s available without wasting time digging through an unorganized pantry.’

But the ‘very minimalistic’ pantry was recently updated with some help from Mary Astadourian of A Detailed Life.

Across from the refridgerators is the longest wall, which now has two fully-stocked - but uncluttered - shelves

The top shelf is mostly full of clear glass jars, which have been filled with snacks like rice cakes, BBQ chips, pretzel sticks, Pretzel Crisps, Veggie Straws, Goldfish crackers, Pop Corners, plantain chips, chocolate cookies, sandwich cookies, Wheat Thins, and marshmallows

On the lower shelf are small, open wooden bins, which are filled with snacks in individual packaging — all lined up like one might see them in a store.

Among the snacks are Kettle brand potato chips, Pirate’s Booty, more Goldfish crackers, Takis, 100 calorie Newman’s Own popcorn, Happy Baby Puffs, Happy Baby Greek Yogis, Quaker Oatmeal, raisins, apple sauce, and fruit snacks.

There is also an ice cream section, with several glass jars filled with cones and different sprinkles.

Previous images of the pantry showed a soft-serve ice cream machine. 

It’s also possible to just see inside the fridges, where there are several large bottles of Pedialyte and cartons of oat milk, almond milk, and dairy milk.

‘Kim mentioned when there’s clutter, they aren’t able to get as much done, which is why they wanted a minimal and well-organized pantry where there’s a place for everything,’ the Poosh article reads.

‘It’s so necessary to be extra organized when having four kids who all have different dietary needs, dairy sensitivities, and different likes and dislikes,’ said Kim.

‘Also, we have friends and family over all the time and need to be aware of different sensitivities, allergies, and diets, such as gluten-free or nut allergies, so it’s important to have things organized at all times. We also switched everything in our house from plastic to glass.’

Incredibly enough, the pantry is hardly her only food storage.

Kim also previously gave a look inside a separate walk-in fridge, which was stocked with bins overflowing with fruits and vegetables like bell peppers, carrots, strawberries, and grapes.

There were also drinks, condiments, a lot of cheese, bread, and what looked like leftovers. 

‘Having an industrial fridge is a game-changer!’ Kim said at the time. ‘It’s a restaurant-size kitchen, with lots of appliances and pots and pans, so we can fully cook at all times and always be prepared for our family and guests.’

Kim also gave a fridge tour on social media in 2020.

‘OK since the inside of my fridge is so baffling and I saw all these news reports, I’m gonna give you guys a tour of my fridge,’ she said.

Elsewhere in the clip, Kim revealed that she stocks her fridges with a variety of traditional and plant-based milks, with her shelves featuring oat milk, lactose free, organic pasteurized, almond, and probiotic milk. 

Explaining the need for so many different types, she said: ‘All my kids use a different kid of milk, you guys,’ while showing the fridge that was featured in the earlier Instagram story snap, then revealed that ‘fresh water and juices’ were stocked in a separate area.  

Kim then filmed herself walking into the main part of the kitchen, ‘where it all happens,’ she said, passing one of her staff members, Marina, on the way before opening the massive walk-in fridge.

Swinging the camera around, she squealed: ‘And you guys I have a walk-in refrigerator! Where we keep all of our fresh organic produce. We are building on the property all organic trees to grow our own vegetables and do all our own stuff’.

Kim, who turned to a vegan diet in 2019, went on to show off ‘all of our meals, you guys know I’m all plant-based now, so all of our stuff is in here.’

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star admitted that her fridge did look bare, but only because of its size, before she went on to give fans a glimpse at the vegan tacos in the pantry that she had prepped for dinner that night.
