“The New Shape of
Popcorn Whole Grain”
What exactly was the old shape of Whole Grain?
Maybe to answer that question, we must first understand what whole grain represents in this case. According to the ingredients list on the back of PopCorner’s bag, the whole grains in this instance are none other then the infamous sorghum grain? That’s right, sorghum; and we’re not talking about what you get from eating too much beef jerky. According to Wikipedia: sorghum “is a genus of numerous species of grasses, one of which is raised for grain and many of which are used as fodder plants, either cultivated or as part of pasture. The plants are cultivated in warmer climates worldwide.” As far as we know, these are officially the first line of chips that we have ever tasted made from a species of grass….
The rustic whole grain chips consist of a unique monotone mixture of colors, that somehow includes hues of light greys and steely blues in certain spots. Their mouth feel is light and crispy, without being very hard or dense. They work pretty well as crunchy flavor delivering devices.
Luckily for us, the Memphis BBQ seasoning compliments the popped whole grain chips rather nicely. The chips are evenly coated with a slightly sweet and tangy seasoning blend that is properly salty, but has no smoky notes what so ever. We are not quite sure what defines Memphis BBQ (anyone?), but all we know is that it is a tasty blend, and we can say straight off that we are fans.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
