Taste test: This version of Cheez-Its had a color much different from the original ones, with various shades of beige rather than orange, while retaining the original shape. Most of the pieces had a light smattering of fine green and red seasoning bits.
I crunched in to find the usual light crunch and a good flavor, with tomato and onion fairly noticeable along with white cheddar, but the promised jalapeño seemed to be absent. There wasn't any heat, nor jalapeño flavor, so it was more like a garden vegetable flavor than a zesty or spicy one. (Don't confuse these with Cheez-It Zingz Queso Fundido, which took on a different shape, plus really had the promised jalapeño kick.)

Smell test: A bit zesty, noticeably different from regular Cheez-Its.
From the package: “White Cheddar Cheese, Onion, Tomato and Jalapeño Pepper Flavors” ... “Munch on our newest cheesy, thin & crispy snack/Prueba nuestro nuevo, delgadito y crujiente snack de queso” ... “Nuevo”
