Composed of Cheetos Flamin' Hot Flavored Snacks, Sunchips Baja Picante Flavored Multigrain Snacks, Doritos Salsa Flavored Tortilla Chips, and Rold Gold Classic Tiny Twists Pretzels. First we rated each component individually:
Flamin' Hot Cheetos- Strong tabasco flavor, nice kick in the beginning, with hot hot heat building afterwards
Baja Picante Sunchips- A little sweet with a tomato flavor, lots of Sunchip flavor, not hot
Salsa Doritos- Tastes like a basic Dorito flavor, but a little spicier and with tomato flavor
Pretzel- Essence of spice
Overall the mix was not so hot, the pieces tasted more like the original flavor with the exception of the Cheetos which are very spicy. When eaten like a mix, the other pieces counteract the spice of the Cheetos, but alone the Cheetos build strong cumulative heat. The Doritos and Sun Chips have a little spice but only the Cheetos have real heat. The pretzels have no additional spice flavor added.
Ratings on the Spice-O-Meter:
- Cheetos: 6.5
- Doritos: 3
- Sunchips: 2
- Pretzels: 1
Bottom Line: The Cheetos are HOT!
