Taste test: These snacks had the same basic irregular shapes as Crunchy Cheetos, with a non-particularly-bright orange color and some specks of green. They're not the first crunchy cheese curl to try this flavor combination, as Cheetos sells the same flavor.
I crunched in and found that they were fairly tasty, with a good mix of cheddar and jalapeno, a good crispness and crunch, plus some moderate heat. The heat was noticeable but far from overwhelming, and though the burn grew a little and lingered for a long time in the aftertaste, it still wasn't a run-for-water type of heat. Pretty good, and better than the Cheetos version.
Smell test: Very nice jalapeno cheddar smell. Zesty and intense.
From the package: “Friday's® Jalapeño Cheddar Crunchy Cheddar Bites pack the perfect punch for any spicy snacker. The perfect blend of jalapeño spice and cheddar cheese is sure to make your taste buds scream for more. We dare you to try them today!”
