Overall, we do not have very much to say about Earl’s Party Time Cheese Puffs. The puffs are certainly on the smaller end of the spectrum, roughly 1/2 to a 1/3 the size of your standard industry cheese puff. Their texture, or should we say lack there of, is practically non-existent. These puffs are what we would describe as having a soft crunch. Fortunately the cheese puffs do still inhabit that always delicious cheese puff meltability. Simply pop into mouth, apply an ample amount of moisture, and watch as the puff slowly melts into a cheese pool on your tongue.
As far as the flavor goes, there is a good level of tanginess to the bright orange cheese powder, but really if we had to describe this flavor in a nutshell we would use one word: SALTY!! So, so, so salty!! We would even go so far as to say that it is difficult to eat too many of the cheese puffs due to their salt level, but really that wouldn’t be the truth, because it didn’t seem to stop us. It only seemed to require us to rehydrate a bit more often during the snacking process.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
