Taste test: These spiral-shaped potato snacks had a light beige color on their surfaces, brightened up by a light coating of reddish barbecue seasoning. Each piece was about half an inch wide and an inch and a half long.
We crunched in to find a light crunch with average crispness, with a mild barbecue taste to somewhat spice up a fairly plain potato flavor. There was just a slight, slight barbecue heat in the initial aftertaste. Nothing bad here or anything, but these were really quite ordinary — boring texture and boring flavor. We expected a lot more from Chester Cheetah. Good enough to eat in a pinch, but not one we'd go out of our way to shop for.
Smell test: Sweet barbecue sauce smell, but mild.
From the package: “The poppable snack that's a hit anytime! Take your taste buds for a sweet & smoky spin with BBQ flavored Spirals snacks”
