Taste test: These cheese curls had the standard crunchy curl shapes, with a nice orange color that was muted compared to many fluorescent competitors, plus a smattering of dark spots on the surfaces.
I crunched in to find an excellent light, crisp crunch and was surprised by a taste that seemed all barbecue, no cheese. It was really tasty, with a sweetness mixed in with some nice spices at first, followed by some smokiness and a very subtle burn. Very good!
Smell test: Mild sweet BBQ smell.
