Taste test: This is similar in concept to Crunchy Cheetos, but the taste and texture are kind of different.
The taste is sort of like your typical cheese curl, but there are some strange (and not good) flavors mixed in too. The curls are crunchy, but in a different way than Cheetos. The cheese powder on the outside is sort of clumped together, but so it leave some larger particles of cheese residue on your fingers. Overall, kind of edible but not that good.
Smell test: Kind of a strange smell, not good. Our tasters variously described as feet or cat food.
