Taste test: This box contained a foil bag holding the cheese straws.
The pieces were sort of remotely fry-shaped, but most were short and squat with a rough and crumbly texture, not really a very appealing appearance. The actual snacks did not look like the picture on the package, which showed regularly spaced wiggles on the outside of the straws. They were shorter pieces in reality, with no wiggles. When we ate them, there was a decent cheese taste at first, and then a strong aftertaste, sort of like the Cheez-Its taste, but considerably more intense in this case. Some of our tasters liked the hit of cheese, but others thought it was gross.

Smell test: Strong cheese smell.
From the package: “Some years ago a Southern gentleman, Turner Holmes Cunningham, won the hand of Geraldine of Oaks, North Dakota, and whisked her off to his mini-plantation. Geraldine bore three sturdy sons and one daughter, Catherine. ... Geraldine knew the power of her cheese straws. People have been known to bargain with the devil to get their lips around just one.”
