Taste test: These spiral-shaped cheese puffs were fairly dense but crisp and a had a good cheese taste with a mild crunch.
The cheese powder coverage was uneven, but the powder was a very bright orange. The deal with them is that when you eat them, your tongue turns either green (indicating you're a jedi, such as Yoda) or dark (indicating you're a sith, such as Darth Vader). It wasn't clear from the bag whether all the puffs in the bag were supposed to turn the same color, or whether it was a puff-by-puff decision. All the ones I bothered to check turned a dullish green, nowhere near as bright as the Chester Cheetah tongue pictured on the back of the bag. Since most people don't ordinarily eat in front of a mirror, and since it's unpleasant to look at other people's tongues, the whole exercise seemed kind of pointless.
