A Deeper Look at
Similar to crunchy Cheetos but smaller and thinner. The coating doesn’t stick to my fingers as much and there’s a standard level of crunch.
They do have a bumpy texture (not like a smooth Pepero stick) that helps the seasoning stick. Plus it give them a cool cute shape!
One small feedback point – the material of the bag makes it difficult to reseal or fold unless to have tape or a chip clip (or eat it all in one sitting… which is possible on an empty stomach haha).
How Do These Healthy Cheetos Alternatives Taste?
- 🧀 Classic cheese – for the fans of the classic, bold cheddar taste (think mac n cheese, cheddar slices, Ritz crackers)
- 🔥 Fiery hot – for those who like a kick with a slight tangy hint of vinegar. Not as spicy as Flammin Hot seasoning which worked for my low spice threshold
- 🔆 Masala – for those who enjoy bold flavors. The Masala seasoning is strong and hits you right away. Not overkill but definitely alerting and different than the standard cheese snack.
- 🌭 Chili Cheese – for those who prefer the mesquite, bbq taste but this one is more mild than Lays or Ruffles bbq. The cheese didn’t stand out to me and this flavor was probably the most subtle of the four.
Where to Purchase
