Taste test: These cheese curls were (ironically) barely curled at all, despite the picture on the bag showing the arc shape typical of cheese curls. The straight curls were thick and had a bright orange color overall, plus a handful of black spots on each piece.
I crunched in to find that these were some of the best cheese curls ever, with a top-notch texture and taste. There was a good crisp-yet-soft feel, as the whole (non-curved) curl sort of melted in the mouth after a couple of bites. But even better than that was the flavor, which was highly cheesy, tangy and spicy, with just the mildest heat. Once I had my first piece, it was a challenge to stop eating these!
Smell test: Very nice. Can definitely smell a bit of taco powder and maybe jalapeño, plus lots of cheese.
From the package: “Flavor Fiesta! Herr's® takes the classic cheese curl in a whole new direction-south of the border. Our Nacho Cheese Flavored Curls are blended with real cheese and crackling with zesty Mexican spice, for a nacho crunch that packs a macho punch.” ... “Live Life with Flavor!®”
