REVIEW: Cheetos – Avocado Cheese (Japan)

Rating: ©©©©-1/2 chips  (lip-smacking)

Cheetos - Avocado and CheeseWe sometimes wonder here at Chip Review if the Japanese 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’re betting that the same will be thought of these Avocado & Cheese flavored Cheetos here in our country!

Okay, we know what you are thinking “has Chip Review lost their minds?!? How could avocado cheese flavored Cheetos possibly be good??”  And, for many of you out there, these may in fact not taste very good.  But! There would be no denying that they are unique, and in a weird sorta way, we really dug them.

First of all, are avocados naturally sweet…?  No?  Are certain cheese?!?  We didn’t think so.  Which make us wonder where all of the sweetness is coming from because it is far and away the most predominant flavor on these Cheetos.  What the heck is that about?  Anyhoo, some of the tasters weren’t thrilled with the sweetness, but for those of us who did enjoy it, we really liked it.

Next came the salty-sort of funky-layer that may in fact be cheese, or at least some seasoning meant to represent a cheese flavor.  The seasoning also seems to encompass some sort of Worcestershire-Umami flavor layer.  Avocado? Who knows. There is a rich fatty smooth layer, but can’t quite say that we hit that vegetable layer.

At this point, some tasters began to declare these THE WORST CHEETOS EVER!

In other words, again, we repeat, these are not for everyone, but if you like your Cheetos flavored with sugar, Worcestershire, and tangy salt, well then, these may be for you!

Sorry everyone, hate us if you must (like the way some of our tasters hated these), but to some of us, these really are uniquely delicious!

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.

BIJOU-REVIEW: Cheetos – Just Salt (Japan)

Rating: ©©©©-1/4 chips  (lip-smacking)

Cheetos - SaltThat’s right we’ve got more of Japan’s unique (aka weird) crunchy snacks!

Wow, these are fun! And these are tasty!!

Simply extruded corn, that’s crunchy, salty, delicious!!

Have you ever tasted plain-salted puffcorn (if not, you should give it a try)??

And, we know that you have tasted Fritos, right?

Well, these are sort of taste like a delicious hybrid between those two!  Loads of corn flavor, front and center, while also delivering the classic Cheetos’ light and crispy texture.

Pure, simple, crunchy, salty, deliciously tasty!

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.

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.
