Poofy Puffs Spicy Cheese

Taste test: These cheese puffs had gnarly shapes, generally shaped like the letter C, but with many twists and bumps, with the color ranging from yellow to reddish orange depending on how much seasoning was applied to any given area.

I crunched in to find no crunch at all — these were chewy, an unusual texture for cheese puffs, basically stale. The seasoning was tangy and hot, particularly in the aftertaste, a pretty good mix of hot sauce and cheese, but the texture really detracted from the experience. Since the bag described the snack as "deliciously crunchy," I don't think this was intentional. But I bought two bags, over a month apart, in two different states, and they both had that same chewy feel.

Smell test: Mildly hot spicy smell.

From the package: “A delightfully crisp, airy corn snack bursting with savory cheese flavor” ... “We love cheese. You love cheese. Like a little heat too? Then this super cheesy treat is for you. We've turned this snack up a notch by taking our deliciously crunchy puffed corn and adding a heap of cheese flavor with a hint of smoke. The result: A zesty, cheesy snack with just the right amount of heat!”
