Baked Cheetos Crunchy

bakedcheetos.jpgHistorically, the flavor of baked snack foods has been far behind that of their fried counterparts. However, I am noticing that the gap is closing. Baked Cheetos stand up very well to regular Cheetos. Although they have 50% of the fat and 20% fewer calories compared to regular Cheetos Crunchy, they have nearly all the flavor and crunch. Sure, you can taste a difference, but it's really not that significant. Baked Cheetos have a nice cheese flavor and a satisfying crunch, without any odd taste that you sometimes get from a baked snack food. Like regular Cheetos, I have trouble restraining myself from eating a whole bag of Baked Cheetos. They are so good, in fact, that I doubt I'll ever go back to regular Cheetos. It's just not worth the extra fat and calories.

Phoood rating: Outstanding!

I love Baked Cheetos. I haven't gone back to regular Cheetos. I wish they could do Puffs baked but that would kind of be impossible. A girl can dream.

All the baked lineup is excellent and the cheetos did not disappoint!!! I agree that it would be awesome if they could somehow do baked puffs especially the flamin hot puffs which I must say are the best cheetos ever!!!

these cheetos are really not any different for the original

and for some reason the puffs that come in the 99cent bags are too crunchy.

the big bags have the puffs that dissolve in your mouth, those are the best puffs.these cheetos are really not any different for the original

the cheesy ones are good.... sadly all they sell at my school are baked and the baked hot cheetos are the worst.... there is a huge difference too much for me to settle for baked

I love these Cheetos! You can hardly tell the difference. As long as its still got that good cheesy flavor, these will never disappoint

The only problem is that, though healthier, you still wanna kill half a bag cuz they're so darn good. And you still end up packing on a shipload of calories.

IMO, the baked cheetos are just as good as the regular. Equally addictive!
