Taste test: These snacks looked like Crunchy Cheetos, but with a dull light orange color in most areas and some darker orange in the crevices.
We crunched in to find a nice crisp crunch and quite an intense kick of spices. The spicy/salty/slightly sweet combination made it very tempting to eat one piece after another in quick succession, but upon doing that, the spices that built up in the mouth were quite intense, almost hot enough to require a cold beverage. It was also hot enough that the cold beverage (in this case, cranberry grape juice) cooled down the heat only temporarily, as the heat soon returned back for an aftertaste that continued to linger. Crunchy, tasty, hot and good.
