Review: Cheetos - White Cheddar Snowflakes

Frito Lay's Cheetos White Cheddar Snowflakes are puffed corn snacks that come in four different shapes and are flavored with white cheddar seasoning. They're a limited-time offering from the brand for the holiday season.

 A 7 oz. bag cost me $2.50 on sale.

White Cheddar Snowflakes are very similar to Cheetos Puffs in terms of texture, and are airy with just a little crunch. Due to the different shapes and the additional nooks and crannies, some of the snowflakes have a little more crunch than others, which I personally prefer (Team Crunchy Cheetos!). They're also narrower in width than Cheetos Puffs, although much wider.

To go along with the winter theme, the white cheddar seasoning looks a little bit like snow on top of the snowflake puffs and is a nice touch. But my favorite thing about these is by far the flavor of the white cheddar seasoning. It's different from the standard Cheetos cheddar flavor; it's a little richer, deeper flavor. Not quite sharp but still has that familiar Cheetos flavor. I am quite a fan.

Overall, I enjoyed Cheetos White Cheddar Snowflakes more for the flavor than the novelty shape. I like the depth to the white cheddar seasoning, although it might be too strong for some. But there's still a lot of familiar for those who are a fan of Cheetos Puffs.
