Feel free to disagree, but you'll be wrong.

Is there any snack food in the world better than cheese puffs?

So, to settle the great debate once and for all, we embarked on a very scientific journey to discover which cheese puff reigns supreme. To be clear about our process, we simply ranked cheese puffs based on our own personal preferences. So feel free to disagree, but you'll be wrong.
