As you probably know, cheese is a beloved snack for many people, but it’s usually paired with crackers or bread. Granny Goose saw a gap in the market and decided to launch its own line of cheese snacks: Granny Goose Hot Cheetos.
Granny Goose makes two different products: regular cheese Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and ones with Jalapeño Jack flavoring. They come in 1oz bags which are the perfect size to grab on your way out the door or while watching TV when you don’t want to get up. You can eat them individually or use them to make your own snack mix.
The packaging is actually quite attractive. The paper is a soft blue that’s easy on the eyes, and the logo is simple yet eye-catching. The product itself is great as well—it’s easy to open and doesn’t stick together as some other brands do.
For those who don’t know, hot cheese snacks are basically just puffs of cheese-flavored cornmeal made with cheddar cheese and jalapenos. They’re also seasoned with red pepper and garlic flavorings, giving them a nice kick without being overpowering.
I’m a big fan of hot Cheetos, so I was excited to try Granny Goose’s new offering. While it’s not as hot as other Granny Goose products, the flavor is still there, along with just the right amount of heat. The cheese flavor is remarkably similar to that of regular Cheetos and adds a nice dimension to the other spices used. The bag is small but there are plenty of nibbles in it, and the corn chip-like texture makes it easy to eat more than you might want. Overall, this is a great snack that will satisfy your cravings without burning your mouth or making you feel too guilty afterward.
With Granny Goose Hot Cheetos or Granny Goose Blazin ‘Hot Cheese Nibbles, you can have any of the lychee Thain Iced Tea, Golden Eagle energy drink, Everfresh Pina Colada Juice, Vulcan mind Prove drink, etc. And enjoy the snack with your friends or family.
Granny Goose Hot Cheetos – Blazin’ Hot Cheese Nibbles
Granny Goose Hot Cheetos – Blazin’ Hot Cheese Nibbles have a good mix of texture as well. They’re crunchy with a little bit of bite. They have a firm outer shell, but inside they’re soft and have a nice chew. As an added bonus, the snacks are relatively low in salt (about 200mg per serving) which puts them slightly below some of their other brands like Granny Goose Tortilla Chips (300mg per serving) and Granny Goose Corn Chips (400mg per serving).
This snack isn’t too salty and it isn’t too spicy. It hits the spot for my cheesy cravings without having to worry about unhealthy ingredients or hidden preservatives.
Ingredients for Granny Goose Hot Cheetos
Granny Goose has its own variety of hot cheese snacks. The flavor is “Blazin’ Hot Cheese Nibbles” which are covered in a tangy and zesty coating of cheese powder. The flavor itself is not too salty, nor bland with spices. However, some bags may have too much or too little in comparison to the others. It isn’t that much of an issue since it does taste good and you can still taste the freshness of the cheese.
Its ingredients include modified corn starch, salt, cheddar cheese (milk/milk solids, cheese culture, salt, and enzymes), malt dextrin, citric acid, and natural flavor (malt dextrin). It doesn’t contain any Tran’s fats or cholesterol. The serving size is 1 oz. and there is about 200mg of sodium which is not bad compared to other top brands. In addition to that, it has 4 grams of protein per serving which makes it a good snack for watching TV or movies.
The packaging itself is simple and shows a very modern look with the design in the red color background and white font on top with the product name at the center.

Gorilla Cheese vs Granny Goose
Gorilla Cheese is one of the best-known brands of cheese-flavored snacks on the market today. The product was first introduced in 2012, and its unique packaging and delicious taste quickly made it a fan favorite.
Since then, Gorilla Cheese has come out with several other flavors, including Granny Goose Hot Cheetos, which I am reviewing today.
My first thought after trying this product was that it is certainly one of the spiciest cheese snacks that I have ever tried. It left my mouth tingling for several minutes after eating it, and I found myself reaching for more water. However, once I got past the heat, I was able to taste the subtle flavor of authentic cheddar cheese melting in my mouth. It is certainly a great snack to eat while watching your favorite show like Battlebots (I’m not sure why I brought that up).
The heat level of this product varies from bag to bag. Some bags are incredibly spicy, while others are only slightly warm. The cheese flavor can also vary from bag to bag depending on whether it is too salty or not enough. At 200 mg of sodium per serving, however, this product is certainly a safer choice than some other brands available today. However, finally, I’ll say that Granny Goose’s Granny Goose Hot Cheetos – Blazin’ Hot Cheese Nibbles is much better than Gorilla Cheese.
