Taste test: These cheese curls had a dark orange color, not quite as red, bright or fiery as some hot curls, but still different from the usual fluorescent orange.
We crunched in to find that there was a good kick of chili pepper heat along with some cheese. It was a good taste, but not a flavor standout. Maybe it was that there was less cheese than other kinds, or maybe it was the kind of cheese, but this mix of flavors just didn't do anything special for me. (I actually enjoyed the hot aftertaste more than the initial taste.) As for texture, it was (literally!) a mixed bag, as some of the pieces were nicely crisp, while other felt a bit stale — about an even split.
Smell test: Not much cheese nor chili that I could notice.
From the package: “No artificial or synthetic flavors” ... “0g trans fat per serving” ... “Made with real cheese”
