World of Snacks was created to sample international treats from across the globe. Our first hope was to have snacks from our childhoods spent overseas readily available. The second purposes was to explore cultures through junk food in an effort to connect with current friends (and new friends) all around the world. The third purpose, to get a hold of the crazy snacks offered in Japan! No other country's snacks have us intrigued more so than Japan and we know we are not alone. Today Yahoo featured an article on the new Pepsi Flavored Cheetos. This sparked a furry of contacts to our company saying we must have the Pepsi Flavored Cheetos. Well, they are on the way to our Florida snack headquarters and we hope to have our review of the Pepsi Cheetos posted soon. Until then, let's take a look at the BBQ Cheetos from Japan.
The BBQ Cheetos from Japan are literally the best tasting chips that we have found anywhere in the world- so far
Although we have sampled many snacks from Japan recently we still have not picked up the language. So we are assuming these are BBQ Cheetos from Japan but are not 100% certain. The shinny gold package has a picture of what appears to be a BBQ pork chop or ribs, bell peppers, and corn on the cob. The only English printed reads Chester Cheetah next to his image and the Frito Lay brand in the corner with a strange slogan that says "Pop Your Time". Being we are ecstatic to even posses the BBQ Cheetos in the US we are going to rip this bag open and start our international snack review.
Generally we start our write ups with small observations and then build up to the review but this time we will start with a bang. The BBQ Cheetos from Japan are literally the best tasting chips that we have found anywhere in the world- so far. They are amazing! The package lead us to believe we'd be tasting a whole meal, and guess what? We did! Frito Lay has packed so many flavors on to one small Cheeto. It's zesty and sweet with a char-grilled flavor. If eaten slowly and deliberately each flavor can be tasted individually but combined it's truly an experience. We had three taste testers present tonight and we almost fought over the bag.
Will World of Snacks offer the BBQ Cheetos from Japan for sale in the US? Absolutely! We intend to get as many unique flavors of Cheetos that we can get our hands on. Although this is our first unique foreign Cheetos sample we know there will be many more to come in the near future.
