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.
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
