Taste test: These cheese puffs from El Salvador were thick and very gently curved, with an intense orange-red color, far more powerful-looking than the light orange ones pictured on the bag.
We crunched in to find a soft feel and light crunch, a bit of a styrofoam-like feel, with a whole lot of tasty cheese initially, transitioning into a hot kick in the aftertaste. Loaded with flavor, very nice, but not quite perfect on the texture side.
Smell test: Strong cheese smell, a bit zesty.
From the package: “Extruded corn snacks covered with cheese and chili” ... “100% natural cheese”
