Taste test: Weak.
Teasing rather than satisfying. Hints of Jalapeno, not enough to satisfy a pepper belly. Cheddar and Blue cheese fighting for dominance in a laid back, almost comatose sort of way.
Smell test: Almost cheesy.
From the package: “100% delicious, All Natural, No Preservatives” ... “Made with Jalapeno Peppers, Natural Blue Cheese & Real Aged Cheddar Cheese.” ... “Wholesome and especially delicious, Barbara’s Jalapeno Cheese Puffs are a gourmet delight. Our carefully selected blend of natural cheddar and blue cheese will melt in your mouth. Your taste buds will love the rich, full flavor of garlic, onions, and jalapeno peppers. Once you taste Barbara’s Jalapeno Cheese Puffs, no ordinary snack will ever satisfy you again.” (Note: No ordinary snack has ever satisfied us. This is another ordinary snack that hasn’t satisfied us.)
