Cheetos Crunchy Salsa con Queso

Note: This is a Presumptive Ephemeral Nom.

New Cheetos really get me excited when they catch my eye, mainly because Cheetos is one of the most conservative brands when it comes to varying their products.  It's been years since Cheetos Crunchy Cheddar Jalapeno was released and, before that, I can only think of the Cheetos Crunchy Flamin' Hot which came about years and years before.

Salsa con Queso? Ay dios!  And the packaging is quite attractive, too.  I suppose Cheetos is continuing their southwestern flavor motif.  I'm not complaining, but I'm hesitant.

Unfortunately, these aren't very memorable.  The classic cheese flavoring is present in full force, but added alongside is a run-of-the-mill salsa seasoning, the kind you'd find on the popular Salsitas chips, but less flavorful.  I would describe the flavor of said seasoning as mostly tomato and a bit of onion with an acidic kick that adds a touch of sourness.  This sourness is not welcome here, and it simply doesn't pair well with Cheetos Crunchy's classic flavor.  If this "southwestern cheese" flavor idea had been more like Doritos Jacked Enchilada Supreme, I would have been warmer with my welcome.

Cheetos Crunchy Salsa con Queso: - Passable
Original Cheetos Crunchy Cheese: - Great
