My 4 year old has been going through a phase where he loves the minions. He saw the Minions movie and collected the toys from McDonalds.
Everywhere we look here in Australia there is minions merchandise, so it's hard not to get caught up in the fever.
So when I saw these Cheetos online, my interest was piqued enough to buy a pack. Cheetos usually come in cheese or other savory flavours. I wondered how banana would taste.
Opening the bag I could see light yellow Cheetos with brown specks. An aroma like a cinnamon candle wafted out. Then I read the top of the bag and it said it is "cinnamon scented banana flavour".
The Cheetos taste buttery at first and then sweet. Then there is a big hit of cinnamon and a very vague taste of banana. Even though this is 'banana flavour', the banana has really been overlooked. This should be called 'cinnamon donut' as it tastes more like that, and the smell reminds me of a car air freshener or a cheap scented candle.
My 4 year old was underwhelmed and told me he didn't want anymore after having only two Cheetos. I had three for this review, my husband had one piece and said he didn't like it. Now we have a mostly full bag going to waste...
A shame really, as it could have been really good. But I guess they better just stick to savory flavours and leave the sweets to a candy maker.
Too marks for trying though.... :)
