Taste test: First off, these are less orangey than Cheetos.
They're not as crunchy, and the cheese definitely tastes different. The cheddar tastes like Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. These also leave much more residue on your fingers than Cheetos.
Smell test: Weaker smell of cheese. One of us said it smells like a dirty sock, but another disagreed. He says it's just the cheese.
