Cheetos Twisted Puffs were introduced in the United States in 2003 and as “Cheetos Puffs Twists” in Canada. (Canada sure is backwards, AM I RIGHT)
They consist of a spiraled, or twisted, if you will, puff of corn based product. “Made with REAL CHEESE” is prominently displayed on the front of the bag, as well as “0 GRAMS OF TRANS FAT” - if there is anyone out there who cares about this when buying Cheetos, let me know.
CHEETOS WORLD CHEETOS RATINGS:
CRUNCH FACTOR: 3
This variety is more focused on the puff aspect rather than the crunch, but it is still somewhat present.
CHEESINESS (On scale of 1 being “Pure Corn” and 10 being “Dangerously Cheesy”) : 5
This is perhaps my biggest gripe with this product, the artificial cheese flavored dust definitely LACKING. big time. In my head, at the Cheetos factory, the Twisted Puffs are laying flat on a conveyor belt, are then sent through a cheese dusting machine, get flipped, sprayed again, and 10 are dumped into a bag. There are portions of the puff that do not get covered in cheese, and I experienced full bites full of pure corn. Perhaps the twisted shape is too difficult to coat in cheese flavor, or maybe I purchased a fluke, under-cheesed bag? You decide.
BAG ART: 2
This bag art is pretty bland. Chester is seen lunging toward a wall of five individual Twisted Puffs floating midair, and is about to grasp one of them in his 4-pronged paw pad glove. The five Twisted Puffs on the front of the bag is a warning and a notice - because these shapes are so large, it seems like you only get a few handfuls of them in an entire bag! They could have been done much more with this bag art- but I’m thinking the mere idea of a Cheetos “Twisted Puff” is so radical, the fat cat executives had to pull in the reigns of the creative team to balance things out.
COOL-FACTOR: 9 (10 if double-helix were made possible)
The Twisted Puffs are so large that I think anyone holding these in their hands, or trying to eat them, is really cool. It’s a cool snack and I feel cool when I eat these. I wish this product could be made larger so consumers could combine 2 of the puffs together to form a double helix type of shape. Who wouldn’t want to eat cheesy DNA puffs? 9!
Cheetos Crunchy (1948-present) is probably what comes to mind when you think of “Cheetos” - these are the original, and perhaps the best, Cheetos product. The first thing I noticed when I opened up my $0.99 Hunger Buster bag was the color. I remember Crunchy Cheetos being much more of a neon orange color - and these have more of a cheddar-like appearance.
CHEETOS WORLD CHEETOS RATINGS:
CRUNCH FACTOR: 10
If you told me there was a crunchier corn-based artificial cheese-flavored product out there, I’d call you a liar.
CHEESINESS (On scale of 1 being “Pure Corn” and 10 being “Dangerously Cheesy”) : 9.
This product is borderline dangerous. There is artificial cheese flavor packed in every bite, and is thickly caked in every nook and cranny of each piece.
BAG ART: 3
Chester Cheetah is on a skateboard, feverishly skating and lunging toward a large cloud of over-sized Crunchy Cheetos - mouth gaping and ready to snack. Although I like this aspect, I am giving it a 3 as it depicts unsafe practices that could harm children. Chester, you are wearing sunglasses while skating and only wearing knee-pads and elbow-pads? Where is your helmet and where are your wrist guards? REAL “COOL” EXAMPLE FOR CHILDREN - SIKE!
If I see someone eating Crunchy Cheetos, I immediately assume they are really cool and know what’s up, in terms of snacking. This is the “classic” Cheeto and that deserves some serious respect. However, I am only giving this an 8 because the artificial cheese will clump on your fingers and you will then have to worry about how to remove it on the sly in a social setting.
