Frito-Lay's Cheetos popcorn is now officially coming to all Regal Cinemas nationwide. The new popcorn features both Cheetos and popcorn flavored like the iconic snack, and will be available in 32-ounce buckets, according to a press release.

While the popcorn has been spotted at various spots in the past, Regal's partnership with Frito-Lay makes it the first national movie theater group to have the novel item. Regal Cinemas owns Regal, Edwards, and United Artists (UA)-branded theaters, so you can expect to find the cheesy popcorn and chips there once it launches.

Speaking of launch dates, Frito-Lay got theirs in just under the wire for this Cheetos popcorn. It will debut nationally on December 15th, just in time for the premiere of the hyped blockbuster Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
