Taste test: These cheese puffs were fairly thick and had a lot of bright orange seasoning, plus a heavy smattering of large, dark green bits. The pieces were remarkably consistent in shape, as most of the pieces had the curvature of parentheses (easily reversible as open or close parentheses by flipping them over).
I crunched in to find a nice crisp crunch and a tasty mix of cheddar and jalapeno, with no real heat initially. After a very short delay, a mild heat did arrive, providing a mild kick in the mouth, but it wasn't very hot and didn't linger for long. Still, pretty good.
Aroma: Strong jalapeño smell, but not noticeably hot.
