We crunched in to find a nice hot cheese seasoning, very tasty and fairly hot (though a bit less hot than the hot popcorn produced by the same engine company). It was a different taste than either the Vitner's or Cheetos ones, also quite good. Most of the pieces were nicely crisp, but some had a bit of a stale feel. When we shared these around, snackers raved about the flavor, and those familiar with Flamin' Hot Cheetos said that these were better.
Smell test: Zesty cheese smell, but not particularly hot.
From the package: “Get ready to feel the heat of Engine Co. 51. While others fight to extinguish the blaze, we crank it up a notch. Packed with the same intensity as those who rush into burning buildings, our Hot Curls are sure to spark a fire with smoke eaters everywhere. Topped with a hearty helping of our delicious signature 4 Alarm seasoning your taste buds will be screaming for water from the very first bite.”
