BIJOU-REVIEW: Cheetos – Cinnamon, Banana & Minions (Japan)

Rating: ©©©-1/2 chips  (notable)

Cheetos - Minions BananaWe sometimes wonder here at Chip Review if the Japan population looks at our snack flavors – our Doritos Cool Ranch, our Cheetos Flamin’ Hot, and our Pringles Sour Cream & Onion – and thinks to themselves, wow, now those are those some REALLY WEIRD flavors!?

Well, we think that it is more than fair to say that the same can be said for Japan’s unique snacks!  We mean come’on, with this latest one we’re talking about Cinnamon Banana Minion Cheetos here!!!

Truth be told, we do not have very much to say about these.  They are, for lack of a better description, weird but surprisingly okay.  If you are looking for a thorough examination of them, make sure to check out The Impulsive Buy’s review, it’s a great read.

As for our thoughts, just imagine light yellow colored Crunchy Cheetos that have been slightly dusted with cinnamon, and even more slightly dusted with a fake banana flavor (we are unsure of whether or not we could taste any minion in there).  We here wished that there was a dash of salt somewhere in there to cut the too reminiscent of eating cereal sweetness, but unfortunately there was not.

We could eat these, but we won’t ever be ordering them from Japan again.  Stay tuned for two more unique Japanese Cheetos flavors soon.

Well, there you have it.  Anyone else out there tried them yet?  Thoughts?  As always we would love to hear what you think.  Agree or disagree.  Let us know.

Chips purchased from market_tokyo on ebay.
