Hi all, I've been looking around to buy some unflavored cheeto style corn snacks but have yet to find them for sale. Is anyone aware of a source to buy this sort of snack from?

Are you talking about a cheeto-shaped cornmeal snack with no cheese?  Try Tings: http://www.amazon.com/Tings-Crunchy-Corn-Sticks-6-Ounce/product-reviews/B000CONMAO?pageNumber=2 
 
If shape is not important, Corn Puffs (butter flavored) made by Pretzels, Inc. might be what you are looking for: http://www.pretzels-inc.com/pretzelsinc.htm
 
There are also other butter-flavored imitation popcorn brands besides the Corn Puffs, usually available in discount stores like Big Lots, Deals, Dollar Tree, Dollar General and Family Dollar, sometimes made in a "popcorn" shape and sometimes in a ball shape

Thanks for the fast reply! Yes I am indeed seeking cheese free corn based snacks,  it's funny that you mentioned Tings because I just recently bought them at Vons since they almost taste like cheeseless cheetos :) I tried putting some of my custom seasonings on them but found that they already had a relatively strong nutritional yeast taste and a decent amount of sodium already added. I'll definitely look through those stores you mentioned for those products but would still like to find plain corn based snacks if they exist. 

Once again thanks for your informative post!

Kix cereal used to be a good choice, but I have found that sometime over the decades, they have changed the formula to make it a bit sweeter (and it seems to have a thin coating that I don't remember, either).
 
You can also by plain puffed corn cereal  in health food stores or the "healthy" section of the supermarket (Arrowhead Mills makes one).

The generic store brand Kix still works tho.

If you take the cheese out of Cheeto's, all you have left are Toe's??????
