Taste test: These snacks had a dull orange color with a smattering of dark seasoning bits, on the same rectangular, rippled chips with a pattern of holes as the White Cheddar and Hot Cheddar Grooves varieties.
I crunched in to find a very strong crunch, quite a contrast to standard Cheez-Its, with a taste that was much less taco-like than I expected after smelling the bag. The taste was quite good, but it was hard to place the taco at all when eating the crackers normally. When I licked the surface, I could notice some sour cream and a hint of taco powder. But many snacks have simulated the taste of a taco with better success.

Smell test: Strong taco powder smell.
From the package: “Newest Edition” ... “Bold flavor big crunch!” ... “Naturally & Artificially Flavored” ... “Craving a cheesy, crunchy taco with all the toppings… right at your fingertips? Yeah, we thought so. The 100% real cheese fiesta has an epic burst of flavor that unleashes the tasty taco takeover you can't resist — but crunchy corn shell, seasoned ground beef and milk-watering sharp cheddar cheese, lettuce and onion … loaded in each and every bite.”
