Taste test: These cheese curls — one of more than 350 kinds of cheese puffs we've reviewed — were major winner. They were shaped kind of like Crunchy Cheetos, but they were crisper, with slightly softer crunch, and instead of just cheese, these had a hot flavoring as well. The heat took a couple of Cheezles to kick in, but it was a tasty, fairly strong heat once it did.
They just tasted great, and for some reason, they were extremely addictive, so there's a good chance that you'll end up popping one Cheezlet after another into your mouth and (if you're like me) end up eating the whole bag. Best of all, this small bag of Cheezlets, packed full with tons of these delicious thingies, cost just a quarter!
Smell test: Smells like the cheese in those little lunch packs of cheese and crackers.
From the package: Ingredients include Cheddar Cheese, Spice Extract and Maltodextrin
