Review: Double Cheese Cheez It Puff'd

Double Cheese Cheez It Puff'd features "puffy and airy, bite-sized squares baked with 100% real cheese inside and out."

A 5.75-oz bag cost me $2.50 on sale.

For whatever reason (possibly the picture on the bag), I thought that these would be like jumbo puffed up Cheez Its but they were maybe just slightly bigger than a regular Cheez It cracker in length and width but with much more depth due to the puffed up quality.

In terms of taste and texture, I couldn't really tell these apart from a Cheetos Puff other than the shape. It had the same crispy airy structure and the same cheesy cheddar flavor but might be just a touch less messy in terms of cheese dust. If it's not the same, I'd say Cheez It's Puff'd are 90 percent similar to Cheetos Puffs. I should note that Cheez It Puff'd are baked and not fried like Cheetos Puffs (I think but am not sure that Cheez It Puff'd go softer/stale a little faster over time).

When it comes down to it, Double Cheese Cheez It Puff'd turned out great. I like Cheetos Puffs so it's not a surprise that I liked these too. I don't know why the flavor is "Double Cheese" though. They didn't taste any cheesier than regular Cheez It crackers or Cheetos Puffs.
