Just the other day we reviewed some other butter flavored popcorn, and we don’t want to name any names, but Angie could definitely learn a thing or two about butter flavor from our buddy Ziggy, and you can quote us on that one!
Ziggy’s Buttery Bliss Kettle Corn rejuvenates, and reconfirms, our declaration that the year of 2013 is the Year of Great Popcorns here at Chip Review. We are only half way through the 2013 calendar year, and we have already tasted, and reviewed, so, so many amazingly delicious popcorn, and kettle corns!! We’ve enjoyed everything from terrific versions of classic flavors like white cheddar popcorn , or caramel & cheese Chicago Mix, to creative new takes like sweet & salty cheddar, or kettle corn with black licorice flavored hints of Anise.
It is safe to say that Ziggy’s Buttery Bliss Kettle Corn with Himalayan Sea Salt can also be added to that amazing popcorn line-up! First, and foremost, this is some powerfully buttery kettle corn. Rich, luscious and yet somehow, this kettle corn is somehow relatively low in fat at only 4 grams per serving…?!? For any of you out there who know packaged popcorn, know that having only 4 grams of fat is quite truly a feat…..wow!
Ziggy’s kernels were bright, yellow-hued, giant, fluffy, light, round and full. Their texture exuded a great toothsome, almost meaty consistency to them. The Himalayan sea salt – is front and center – salty, salty, salty and delicious. We are not familiar at all with Himalayan Sea Salt (and our guess is that neither are you?), but based on the little bit of research we did on it, as we munched through Ziggy’s Kettle Corn, we liked everything we read about. To try and describe the salt to you won’t do it justice, but we would describe it as adding an earthy mineral, rustic, slightly spicy, deep, rich depth to the popcorn.
While Ziggy’s Buttery Bliss may not be quite as good as his Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn, we still would not have any problems with devouring a whole bag faster than we…..yum!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
