Taste test: These cheese puffs were fairly thin and had a fairly light yellow color (but a bit brighter than the ones pictured on the front of the bag) with most pieces almost straight or just gently curved.
We crunched in to find a fairly dense feel, with still a reasonable lightness and good crispness. The initial taste was more corn puff than cheese, but the Gouda hit strong just shortly afterward. It definitely was a different cheese tasted than your standard fluorescent orange cheese puffs, and it was quite tasty.
Smell test: Strong cheese smell, and really like smoked Gouda.
From the package: “Our Artisan Baked Cheese Puffs are all natural and deliciously different. They're just as crunchy and cheesy as the ones you grew up with but the Adult flavor comes from cheeses that have grown up with you. They are healthier due to their reduced fat content and they have no trans fats.”
