Taste test: The name confusion on Frito-Lay products continues with this one, as we've seen something called Cheetos Popcorn before, but it was not the same thing as this — it was freshly popped cheddar popcorn mixed with Crunchy Cheetos, sold at the ballpark. We've also seen Chester Cheetah's face on bags of popcorn before, but it was labeled as Chester's Popcorn, with no mention of Cheetos anywhere on the bag. This seemed to be the practice (until now) for things that weren't Cheetos but had enough cheese to satisfy the notorious cheesaholic Chester.
So what was this? It was very good cheddar popcorn, quite possibly identical to Chester's Popcorn, but bearing not just the Cheetos logo, but also an enormous version of Chester's face (joyously eating cheese popcorn) on the bag. The cheese coating was somewhat uneven but generally strong and bright orange. The popcorn was crisp and had a really nice, strong cheddar flavor.
