Beanitos White bean Mac n cheese crunch: These corn-alternative snacks have an irregular crunchy texture with a similar size to puffed Cheetos. The Mac n Cheese flavor is just a marketing spin on cheddar (more on an actual cheese puff whose flavor resembles boxed Mac and cheese in a forthcoming review). They have a slightly less neutral taste than regular corn puffs, with an aftertaste that resembles wheat snacks. Not bad, but not particularly memorable. 3.0/5.0

Annie’s Organic white cheddar bunny tail puffs: I haven’t purchased boxed mac and cheese since I graduated from school, but I’m not ashamed to admit that this cheap and quick staple was a regular in my pantry all throughout college and grad school. I generally preferred the white cheddar kind, like the white cheddar shells from Trader Joe’s and the Yummy Cheese flavor from Annie’s. Recently, I found that Annie’s is actually owned by General Mills, which gave me some pause when considering whether to purchased this snack. But given how muc... (read more) 4.0/5.0

Fuller Foods Seriously Cheesy Puffs Sriracha flavored baked cheese puffs: Hand crafted artisanal cheese puffs made in Portland, Oregon. Sounds like a Portlandia sketch, but true story. The cheese puffs are thinner and longer than typical cheese puffs, like 1.5x the volume of a Cheetos puff. Sriracha flavored puffs have a dark red orange coating. Spicy flavor builds up quickly. Lacks the familiar sweetness of Sriracha, and tastes less like the Asian hot sauce and more like a stronger western one. Texture is very good - crispy yet airy, but flavor is quite frankly s...

Barbara's jalapeno cheese puffs: Crunchy corn "puffs" that are a little spicy and just a little funky (they contain a bit of blue cheese). I'm generally not a fan of blue cheese, but it works well here. Very addicting, with a robust cheddar flavor. A unique spin on a classic snack. 4.0/5.0

Trader Joe's reduced fat cheese puffs: Usually when a brand had a reduced fat version of a snack, there is a full-fat option too. Not so with this bag of Trader Joe's cheese puffs, as far as I know. Less cheese coating than an alternative like Cheetos, but a decent amount of flavor. A solid but messy snack. 3.0/5.0

Bearito's Cheddar Puffs: Baked cheddar corn puffs made with non-GMO verified ingredients. The cheddar coating is somewhat unevenly distributed; when I first opened the bag, the top was not very seasoned, but in the middle of the bag, the puffs were more thoroughly covered with cheese powder. The cheddar flavor is tangy and a little bit funky, like a health food cheese flavor (as opposed to a junk food one). Somewhat reminiscent of powdered cheddar cheese you might have with boxed mac and cheese. The texture of the p... (read more) 3.0/5.0
