Hot Cheetos contain whey, whey protein concentrate, buttermilk, cheddar cheese- all of which are dairy products or derivatives. Even the bottom of the pack contains in bold print declaring that hot Cheetos contain milk ingredients. Whey is a derivative of milk, prepared by separating the watery part of curd. 

However, the good news is there are some really delicious vegan chips and snack puffs out there. Peta2 has released a list of Vegan Chips you can munch on till your heart fills <3
