Taste test: These snacks were basically short, stubby cheese puffs, far thicker than macaroni, not hollow like macaroni, and made from corn, not wheat — so really the only thing that they had in common with mac & cheese was the cheese.
They had a light, crisp feel and a good, somewhat sharp cheese flavor. The small size of the pieces made it easy to grab a bunch to munch. Pretty good.
Smell test: Good cheese smell, could pass for the kind usually used for mac & cheese.
From the package: “Premium puffed corn snacks” ... “TGI Fridays® Mac & Cheese flavored Party Bites deliver the cheesy flavor you crave in a light crunchy snack. Leave the mess behind, grab these and go party!” ... “Produced with genetic engineering”
