Cheetos Korean Hot Pepper

Buy Cheetos on Amazon


Taste test: This version of Cheetos brought a whole new shape to the brand, as the pieces were shaped like 5-pointed throwing stars, with a light orange color and some bits of darker red seasoning.

I crunched in to find a good crispness and mid-level crunch, somewhere between the crunchy and puffed versions of Cheetos. There was a mild heat and good tangy taste when I first crunched in, but when I ate more and more pieces, the heat kept building to a good mid-level burn that lingered for quite a while. There was no cheese mixed with the hot pepper, as far as I could tell.

Smell test: Kind of strange, but there was also a hint of hot peppers.
