Taste test: These are shaped differently from the regular Cheetos Puffs, as the puffs are both narrower and less curvy, and they're a pale yellow in color.
When I first bit in, the texture seemed slightly stryofoamy and the taste not that as cheesy as I've come to expect from Cheetos, but as I ate more of them, the level of cheese taste did seem to increase to an acceptable level. I still wouldn't label these as Dangerously Cheesy, but they're pretty good. I have had some other "natural" cheese puffs, such as Barbara's, that had a lot more cheese flavor.

Smell test: Very nice cheddar aroma, more like real cheese than the usual fluorescent orange cheese puffs.
