Like others, I was a little disappointed to find that the "kick" of the popper came from the spices added to the cream cheese, and the jalapeno itself tasted like a regular cooked green pepper would -- a little bland. So, it was basically like tasting softened regular green pepper with a spiced-up, cheesy, cream cheese filling coated in fried, slightly bland bread crumbs. (I blanched the jalapenos for 30 seconds before filling them). Next time, I would add even more spice to the cream cheese to increase the flabour. All in all, while these were good, they took a long time to prep, with tons of dishes to wash afterward, and panic about accidentally having a jalapeno seed fly into an eye. For the result, I just don't think it was worth it. I might make these again if I'm really desperate for a party snack, in a few years.
