Taste test: The snacks in this bag looked a lot like Crunchy Cheetos, with the same types of wiggly-shaped sticks and a light orange color (not as bright as Cheetos) with some darker orange spots.
We crunched in to find a very good crispness and light crunch, but almost immediately after that, we were stuck by a sharp kick of heat. We didn't expect any heat, so it was kind of startling, and it was really pretty hot. This was supposed to be a chicken-flavored snack, and there did seem to be something resembling a chicken soup type of taste below all of those hot peppers, but we had to think about chicken to even notice, as the heat was way more dominant. A very nice taste, especially if you like hot stuff. We shared these with quite a few folks as they enjoyed some beers, and there with many thumbs-ups, with just a few detractors.
