Taste test: Nearly eight years after reviewing a throwback edition of Crunchy Cheetos, there's finally a corresponding Puffs version. I don't think the bag was completely authentic (there are some modern labeling requirement to be met), but in addition to the old Chee-tos logo, the bag had the early version of Chester Cheetah and the pre-1997 Frito-Lay logo. And the words "Dangerously Cheesy" were nowhere to be found!
The puffs looked just like the ones in the current-day bag, thick with long, arcing shapes and a good helping of fluorescent orange powder. I crunched in to find a fairly dense feel and soft crunch, with lots of very tasty cheese that also got all over my hands and face.

Smell test: Nice cheese smell, but not very strong.
From the package: “Made with real cheese” ... “Cheese That Goes Crunch™” ... “Cheetos® is throwing it back to the bag that gave us cheesy smiles, cheesy memories and even cheesier fingers.” .... “8 servings per container” ... “Serving size About 13 pieces (28g)” ... “Limited Edition!”
