Taste test: These are OK cheese puffs.
There's a decent amount of cheese and a good flavor. The texture seems to be just a bit off — it's not soft in the way I would expect for a cheese puff. They're certainly not crunchy either, but rather, they're just on the edge of being soft and are foamy enough that don't melt in your mouth as one would expect from a good cheese puff, and instead you feel the foam-like consistency as you bite in.
Smell test: Very slight aroma, not really cheesy, hard to place, but not bad.
