Taste test: This popcorn has a bright reddish orange flavoring that makes it look hot before you even bite in (and one of our tasters was scared away by the color and didn't even try any).
Turns our that it's very, very flavorful but not hot at first, and then you get a moderately hot aftertaste. I'm impressed by how much intense cheese flavor Grippo's packed onto this popcorn. I'm also impressed by the fact that Grippo's put a clear window on this bag to let you see the color some other chip companies have been known to use tinted windows on their bags to distort the actual color of their snacks. This is good stuff.

Smell test: Maybe like popcorn with paprika, but not really a hot smell.
