Until we tasted Gourmet Popcorn we'd rather gone off popcorn per se. Watching (and listening to) movie-goers demolishing bucketfuls at the flicks every week is enough to put anyone off.
Gourmet to take-away
Thankfully Gourmet Popcorn bears zero resemblance to the stinky stuff sold at cinemas. Indeed comparing this deliciously flavoursome, award-winning popcorn to the mass-produced cardboard rustled about by annoying people in the back row is like comparing ambrosia with rotten potato peelings.
For starters Gourmet Popcorn is seasoned with exceedingly unpopcorny (yes, we made that word up) flavours, including both Bombay-Style Masala and Sour Cream & Chive.
Sour Cream and Chive
Having tested several tinloads we're happy to report that both editions are seriously tasty. You see because of its irregular shape, popcorn holds flavours extremely well, while the medium-sized kernels used here maintain a fabulously fluffy but tender texture. Addictive? This stuff is so unbelievably scoffable you'll be re-ordering before you've polished off your first tin.
If all you health freaks are licking your lips but watching your hips, worry not; popcorn is naturally high in fibre and low in calories. Better still, Gourmet Popcorn is made using a unique hot air process, making it even lighter and healthier.
Stylishly packaged in smart 3.75L gift tins, Gourmet Popcorn makes a novel pressie, and it's ideal for fans of home cinema. You can even match flavours to movies: Bombay-style Masala is perfect with Bollywood extravaganzas and Sour Cream & Chive goes great with oldies - well it's a bit of a classic, innit?
We usually wrap things up by encouraging customers to get ordering, but in this case - and to borrow a line from an all-time classic - frankly, we don't give a damn. We're quite happy to scoff the lot ourselves. Mmm...Masala.
