Alberta has its fair share of weird landmarks but the latest addition to one small town goes out to all the snackers out there.
TikTok is already loving the brand-new landmark that popped up in the province, and it's dedicated to the cheesiest of all snack foods, Cheetos.
The monument has popped up in Cheadle, Alberta — a small community just outside of Calgary — and the spot was chosen for a very specific reason related to Cheeto dust.

According to Cheetos, the official name for the neon orange powdery residue left on your hands after eating a bag of Cheetos can actually be found in the dictionary and it's called "cheetle."
So where better to place a huge 17-foot landmark dedicated to Cheetos and cheetle than a town with a very similar name? (Cheetle, Cheadle, get it?)

The massive monument features a hand statue holding an enormous Cheeto, complete with the quintessential, bright orange cheetle-dusted fingertips.
Sadly, the Cheetos statue isn't going to be around forever, and all you Cheetos super fans only have until November 4 to see the landmark IRL.
So, to pay homage to Cheetos and cheetle, you can find the hand at 400 Railway Ave. in Cheadle, AB.

Since the statue popped up, TikTokers have been sharing their reactions to the super-sized snack and it looks like it's a hit.

So many people have commented on TikTok saying they are desperate to visit the big Cheeto.
"As soon as I get a day off, I’m going to find that Cheeto," one person commented on the TikTok video.
"OMG this is only 1.5 hours away... I need to go on a road trip," another added.
The Cheetos statue is just another in a long list of strange food items to be memorialized in Alberta.
In the province, you can already find the world's largest perogy, a really big sausage and even a huge smiling pinto bean in a hat for some reason.
Why not make the giant Cheeto a stop on a massive food-based statue road trip around Alberta?
