Flamin' Hot Cheetos Popcorn. Is It Any Good?
A popular Cheetos flavor gets the popcorn treatment
Popular snack brand Cheetos recently released popcorn and they did so in two flavors. Cheddar and Flamin' Hot, two of the brands most popular flavors.
I tested the Cheddar and decided it was time to try out the Flamin' Hot. I do really like Flamin' Hot Cheetos normally because of that vinegary flavor you get along with the heat, so I was really interested to see if they had captured that in the popcorn.
The first thing that I noticed, and I noticed it immediately, is the color. They got that Flamin' Hot color down.
The second thing I noticed is that I didn't get an overwhelming Cheeto smell, similar to the Cheddar, I thought it smelled like the popcorn tins you get during the holidays. On the flavor side I found myself missing the general Cheetoness of it. There is spice and hotness, but it's not as much as you get with the Cheeto version. Though it does build up and it can get hot after a while.
You do get red-orange fingers like you would with Cheetos, but beware if you're already at your max and want to lick them, they will be hot!
Overall I think this is pretty good as popcorn and if you're a lover of the Flamin' Hot Cheetos, then I would definitely recommend giving them a try.
