We are going to delve into the facts and origins of the food and then will have a One Take Review by John. So, ladies and gentlemen welcome to the world of TASTE OF STATES
Today we look at a product that took a turn on the normal crisp that you get and gave it a completely different twist to what you would normally expect. Now for those who do not know what a Cheetos is let’s start there first. They are basically in basic terms a sort of Wotsit – a puffed cornmeal snack that is cheese flavoured and produced by the PepsiCo.
Back in 2015, the brand decided to take a completely different turn on the popular crisp to create something new and unique for the Easter holidays – by turning these popular snacks sweet. The product that was created after much research and understanding of the market was a cinammon sugar flavour. The team at Cheetos tested an array of different products to see what would work at that time of the year and after a lot of investigation and looking at consumer behaviour they created a flavour and a style that was new but also was aimed to keep the Cheetos Brand at bay – Cheetos Sweetos.
The crisp were available in a lot of the shops and were approx about $3.80 to buy. The were also a snack that had a lot of mixed reviews with one writer saying they were ‘probably the worst thing to come out of junk food that I’d buy again tomorrow’ – Maxim review.
So how good or bad are they? well John was on the case!
