A Flamin' Hot Cheetos Popcorn Taste Test Comparison

It's time for another Cheetos Popcorn Taste Test. Earlier this year we compared the regular Cheetos Popcorn to Crunchy Cheetos. This time we're firing things up a bit and trying out the Flamin' Hot version, along side both Cheetos Flamin' Hot Puffs and Cheetos Flamin' Hot Crunchy. It's going to be a hot one today!

The color of the day is definitely Flamin' Hot Red.

Everything has the same dark red hue, though maybe the popcorn is a little less so.

And I have no doubts at the end of this, we'll have Cheetos-dust covered fingers.

You know how the kids are usually the ones asking when we're going to do a taste test. These have been sitting on a shelf in our room for a few weeks, and Theresa has been asking when are we going to be doing this taste test. She's a fan of the spicy. Alright Theresa, you've waited long enough. Let's dig into them!

Taking our lesson from spicy taste tests of the past, we made sure to have cups of milk ready to go for the kids. Alli was all set for this taste test. Ian was not interested in this one, but we said he's got to at least try them again. He doesn't look too enthusiastic.

And he's still not too thrilled about it.

But wait! A sudden realization has occurred. Someone's taste buds might be changing!

And he's going in for a second bite! Wow!!! That was very shocking to me!

Theresa thinks these are all tasty. The popcorn is good, but in the battle of Flamin' Hot, Theresa likes the Crunchy Cheetos best.

Chi joined us a short time later and had to try the popcorn.

And Richard wasn't too far behind.

I had to get a video of this. Ian's no longer a spice wimp!

Amazing! I certainly was not expecting to take this kind of picture today. Thumbs up from everybody!

The grandparents were impressed that everyone was still participating.

Our fingers are now covered with Cheetos dust, some more than others. Alli, you can put that finger down.
Alli - But it's the only one that has dust on it.
Today was a great taste test!


  1. Surprise, surprise!!...Ian fooled me...I was thinking "oh, oh" when I read the blog title...looks like he's starting to develop a "spicy" palette! Popcorn looks interesting, but Crunchies over Puffs for me (something about that texture makes it taste better to me) The young kid inside Theresa shines through when a Cheetos Flamin' Hot Crunchy is sighted :-) Fun taste test! EOM

    1. Right! I was shocked! When we were snacking a couple days later, he even asked for the Flamin' Cheetos Puffs again! I'm glad he stuck it out and tried new things!
