Taste test: This lime version of Watz had a much brighter orange color than the Cheese version — such a bright, fluorescent shade of reddish orange that it was quite striking (in a way that the ones pictured on the bag didn't convey). The pieces were corn-based cheese puffs but had crinkle-cut fry-like shapes.
We crunched in to find a brief cheese taste before the lime kicked in, transitioning quickly into a fairly hot lime flavor. It was certainly bold and pretty tasty, but it seemed like fake lime. The heat and zestiness seemed worthy of the Lime Tornado name, but why not use real lime? Did the tornado knock down all of the lime trees?
Smell test: Could not notice any lime (nor anything else).
