BIJOU-REVIEW: Better Made – Jalapeño Cheddar Cheese Puffs

Rating: ©©©-3/4 chips  (notable)

Better Made Jalapeno Cheddar Cheese PuffsBetter Made’s cheese puffs must have been putting some major OT in at the crunchy snack weight room, because these puffs have some BODY to them!

These are some large and heavy puffs!!  With a really strong crunch.

A little more dense than normal.  Plus, they don’t exactly have the same melt-ability as most, or all, of the greatest cheese puffs out there do.

The extra orange, delightfully salty, cheddar cheese aspect is flavorful, but lacking that rich and tangy cheese essence.

The jalapeño chili heat and flavor is certainly there.  In fact, after a while you may just feel the spicy pain.

So, if you are looking for some spicy cheese puffs, you could certainly do far worse than Better Made’s version, but you could also do better.

As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think.  Agree or disagree, let us know.
