Taste test: This version of Crunchy Cheetos had a much less bright color of orange, and there were also some bits of green scattered over the surfaces of the curls. The illustration on the bag depicted Chester Cheetah tossing a tomato, a lime and a jalapeno into a bowl of queso sauce, so I was expecting some strong flavor and heat.
When I crunched into my first few curls, I was underwhelmed by the taste, as there was a good flavor, but not a hot or strong one. Lucky for Chester, I kept eating, and the flavor intensity and heat did grow to a respectable level. Still not super-hot or anything, but enough heat to enhance the taste. Pretty good.

Smell test: Nice slightly spicy cheese smell. Reminds me of a Chinese restaurant for some reason.
