Taste test: These snacks looked like cheese puffs, except smaller, with sort of a bright beige color.
We crunched in to find that they delivered on the promised peanut taste, as they had a mild crunch and tasted like peanut butter. It wasn't quite as intense as, say, dipping a cheese curl into peanut butter (good luck doing that without breaking the curl!) but there was a surprisingly strong peanut butter taste, and the taste kept getting stronger as I ate more and more Flips, which was had to avoid doing. Most of our tasters liked these, but it wasn't unanimous as one self-professed peanut lover said she didn't love these (which ran contrary to a claim on the bag).
