This was a review requested by one of our most dedicated readers - my daughter. Since I never got her that pony she wanted, I decided this was the next best thing.As you can see, it's more generic ALDI packaging although this time they didn't try to copy a national brand. They have 0 grams of trans fat, but I'm sure they make up for that with regular fat. Also, they're made with real cheese of some sort. I bought these at the end of March so the April 18th consumption deadline loomed on the horizon. I lost the receipt but I think these babies were around $.99. I'll update the price next time I hit up ALDI.
So the Cheese Puffs were AMAZING. I crushed that BEST BY date, powering through the entire bag in 3 days. I found them to be so delicious that I bought a bag of Cheetos (tm) to compare them and verify that it wasn't just cheese puffs in general that were amazing (although they are). I found the Clancy Cheese Puffs to be better in every single way. They were fluffy, slightly crunchy, cheesy and salty with great mouth appeal. There were no weird half baked/half fried ones in the bag and the cheese coating covered my fingers like any respectable cheese snack should.
As the Lady has stated previously, snacks are ALDI's sweet spot and these live up to that statement. I give these Clancy's Cheese Puffs an A+. A for being delicious and + for being inexpensive.
- Please disregard the Deep Space Nine playing on the TV in the background. I was in a bad place with a broken computer and inoperable phone. I think we can all agree that DS9 is the worst series of a terrible franchise.
