Taste test: This version of the Munchies mix combined midsize knotted Rold Gold pretzels, Nacho Cheese Doritos, Harvest Cheddar Sun Chips and Crunchy Cheetos.

The folks at Frito-Lay played some games with the sizes here: The pretzels, despite being labeled "Tiny Twists" were larger than the ones labeled like that and usually used in mixes like this; the Doritos were way, way smaller than the regular Doritos; and the Sun Chips had narrower ripples and a smaller overall size than the ones in bags of Sun Chips. The combination of tastes was OK, but nothing great here. This mix of snacks was similar to those in the original Munchies (with no specific flavor in the name at the time) that we enjoyed a lot when we reviewed them over a decade ago, but I was much less impressed by this "Cheese Fix" bag. The crispness and cheesiness of the mix that just seemed so perfect way back then wasn't evident here. Pretty ordinary.

Smell test: Pretty good cheese smell. The Cheetos and pretzels seemed to dominate.

From the package: “New bigger size!”
