Taste test: This popcorn, much like the cheddar flavor of Cheetos Popcorn, seemed to signal a transition of non-cheese puff cheese products from the Chester's brand to the Cheetos brand, which also happens to have Chester Cheetah as its mascot.
Chester has for years offered a Flamin' Hot Popcorn, so the question here was, is this the same?
The puffs had a strong covering of an intense, dark red seasoning, a strong contrast to the white popcorn surfaces showing through in some crevices. We crunched in to find a nice crisp feel, with a lot of tasty, hot seasoning. It wasn't killer hot, but it was pretty hot and very flavorful. All in all, it was quite good, and didn't seem to be appreciably different from the Chester's-branded version.

Smell test: Nice cheese smell, but couldn't really smell the heat.
