This past year has brought many new products to the Pepperidge Farms line: obsession-worthy Blueberry Swirl Bread, a variety of cake-inspired cookies, and even Goldfish Mac & Cheese, some with greater success than others.

Goldfish Puffs Mega Cheese
With a name like Goldfish Puffs Mega Cheese, it'd be disappointing if these were anything less than boldly flavored and sharp; thankfully, a generous coating of cheese powder made that a nonissue. While a few tasters found the cheese flavor a bit further from nature than they'd prefer, most would buy a bag, and enjoyed snacking on these salty, crunchy snacks.
