Taste test: These cheese curls had the same irregular shapes and sizes as Crunchy Cheetos, but with a somewhat pale yellow color and many tiny bits of green scattered over their surfaces.
The feel was very crisp, level of cheese was fairly low, and the jalapeno heat was fairly mild, but our tasters generally liked these anyway. It was easy to taste the underlying toasted corn underneath the tame flavoring. If you want lots of cheese, these probably won't satisfy you, but this particular mix of tastes was enough for our tasters to eat their way through the bag pretty quickly.
Smell test: Very mild but nice bell pepper sort of smell.
