Cheetos Chili Pepper in Okinawa

Taste test: These Cheetos-shaped snacks had a light orange color with some darker orange spots, and they had a very tasty hot and sweet pepper flavor that was quite a bit different than any other snacks we've tried.

Many of our tasters thought the taste was actually pretty good, but not everybody liked these. There didn't seem to be any cheese that we could taste, and there was no cheese listed on the ingredients either, but the similarity in shape to cheese-containing Cheetos apparently was enough for Frito-Lay to apply the Cheetos label. (We were unable to reach Chester Cheetah for comment.)

Smell test: Very tangy spicy smell, reminded me of Thai food.
