Review: Dot's Homestyle Snacks Baked Cheese Curls

These crunchy cheese curls stood out for their high price, costing a big premium over similar volumes of Cheetos and other competing products, so we bought a bag to find out whether the extra cost brings a better product. ...

Review: Harvest Snaps Popper Duos Green Pea Crisps Yellow & White Cheddar
