Giant Cheetos Flamin' Hot

Taste test: This new shape of Cheetos bag (about 3 inches high by 8 inches wide, with openings at the sides) brought the shape of the regular Giant Cheetos (the world's largest Cheetos) and combined it with the spices from Flamin' Hot Crunchy Cheetos.

In the process, they set a new record for the fewest Cheetos in a bag, as there were exactly five pieces, each shaped like a marshmallow and nearly as big. The seasoning covering the outside was very dark red, but the much paler Cheetos corn meal interior could be seen peeking through in some places. I didn't think the taste was all that impressive, as it was moderately hot and just not that flavorful. We've tried several hot cheese curls that were better than these. Indeed, the original Cheetos Crunchy Flamin' Hot version does a better job mixing cheese with heat than these did. The heat grew more impressive after I was done eating all 5 in a row, as there was a lingering hot aftertaste, but still pretty disappointing from a cheese point of view.
