    Add a sweet cupcake containing Flamin' Hot Cheetos to that "it's back!" list, a noshy item that will surely be one of the more unusual additions to your spring-themed roster.

    For the talked-about Sprinkles Cupcake offering is making a limited-time return to all shops under the Sprinkles umbrella, just as spring officially kicks off.

    And we do mean "limited-time return," too. Things can famously be on the shorter side in the spring — think of a quick rainshower or a here-today-gone-tomorrow wildflower — and this spicy-sweet treat will be short-lived, too.

    Enough with the numbers, time perimeters, and such: This is what comprises this quirky confection. Think vanilla cake, think a hefty dusting of Flamin' Hot Cheetos, and think frosting that rocks, wait for it, a "creamy" white cheddar vibe.

    Lots of dessert devotees like some heat in the happy mix, and this photo-worthy delectable brings it.

    And, truly, Flamin' Hot Cheeto continues its reign as one of the snack aisle's most sought-after munchables, popping up not just in the usual bags but atop and in all sorts of fancy foodstuffs.

    Including, yes, a superstar of a Sprinkles Cupcake. Get it now, if you're gonna.
