Taste test: These Cheetos from Taiwan looked a lot like the standard American "Dangerously Cheesy" Crunchy Cheetos, with irregular shapes, a wide range of sizes and an uneven coating of bright orange powder on the otherwise yellow surfaces. The amount of orange was a little less than I'm used to, but still, it was a bright orange look overall.
I crunched in to find a good helping of cheese and a middling crispness, definitely less crisp than I'm used to from Cheetos. Chester Cheetah seemed to be celebrating something on the front of the bag, and from the way he was holding up two Cheetos, I'm figuring he was celebrating the fact that these were Double Cheese. The taste was good and reasonably cheesy, but the question is, double what? It was probably double the cheese of something, but it seemed like a little less cheese than you usually get from Cheetos. Still, good.
