Taste test: These snacks looked a lot like Crunchy Cheetos, with similar irregular shapes and a mix of yellow and orange that wasn't quite as bright as Cheetos.
We crunched in to find a strong crunch and a taste that was noticeably different than any other crunchy cheese curls we've tried. There was some mild heat, but the taste wasn't really close to Flamin' Hot Cheetos or any of its competitors — it was kind of a mix of toasted cheese and chili pepper that was quite good. I had these with a glass of lemonade, and I kept having to pour more of the curls onto my plate because I couldn't stop eating them.`
Smell test: Smells like chili cheese fries.
Online store: Buy cheese puffs on Amazon
