Last night, my wife and I finally got around to watching the latest episode of House once the kids were in bed (roughly an hour after it aired thanks to our DVR). We were both hungry for a snack and ended up finishing off the bag of Popcorn Indiana Gourmet Sea Salt Popcorn we opened a couple days earlier.
Since we were still hungry, I decided to open one of the other samples the company recently sent me. This time around, it was their Aged White Cheddar Popcorn. And, I have to say it was pretty decent.
I recently tried this company’s white cheddar flavored “ChipIns,” a type of chip made out of popcorn. And, when I opened this bag, I was expecting the popcorn to have a taste that was similar to that. However, as it turns out, there was actually a difference; both when compared to the ChipIns and when compared to other brands of cheese flavored popcorn.
When I tried this, I was expected the fact the cheddar was aged to mean it would be very sharp. That was not the case. I think it actually would fall closer to the mild cheddar category. However, the aged flavor was still noticeable because I could taste the cheddar flavor even if I was eating just one piece of popcorn. I have tried plenty of other brands that I couldn’t say that about and would need to eat a handful of popcorn to taste the cheese.
In fact, I liked the cheese flavor so much; I ended up eating half the bag almost by myself; despite (as I said before) having the Sea Salt Popcorn before even opening up this variety. It’s a good thing I got distracted by something else (giving my wife time to close the bag) or I would have eaten the entire thing.
My only real complaint about this product is the cheese is a bit sticky and will coat your fingers very fast. And, unlike most brands, you can’t just lick this cheese off; I tried that and wound up in our kitchen washing my hands because there was such a thick layer of it.
Despite that, I do think this is another decent product from the Popcorn Indiana brand. I don’t know if I would choose this over home-popped popcorn with my own cheese blend. But, I would recommend it to anyone looking for something that offers convenience and a great taste.
