Taste test: After bring quite disappointed with the taste cheddar flavor of Cheez-It Crunch'd, we were cautiously optimistic that this spicy version would be better. Other than the different flavor and a slightly darker color, these seemed to be the same in just about every way — which is also to say, different from what you probably think of as Cheez-Its in most ways. They were not crackers at all, but square cheese puffs made from wheat and corn, with a small hole in the middle of each piece.

We crunched in to find the same good texture as the cheddar ones, along with a vastly superior flavor. The bag showed a bottle of Tabasco Milder Jalapeño flavor hot sauce, and that tasty sauce brought these puffs some very nice flavor. The taste was moderately hot and quite zesty, a nice strong flavor. We shared these with lots of hungry snackers, and they ate their way through the bag as they heaped praise on the taste and texture.
