While we may have declared 2013 the year of amazingly delicious popcorns, bringing us everything from terrific versions of classic flavors such as white cheddar popcorn , or caramel & cheese Chicago Mix, to creative new combinations like sweet & salty cheddar, or kettle corn with black licorice flavored hints of Anise; 2014 is off to a really great start as well!!
365’s Applewood Smoked White Cheddar Popcorn is some very interesting stuff! Instantly enveloping our mouths with rich and potent, smoke saturated white cheddar cheese popcorn! However, we must warn all of you that if you cannot handle your smoke, or you (for some odd reason) do not like smoky flavored snacks, then this popcorn is probably not for you. On the other hand, many of us here at Chip Review are more often than not, huge fans of smoky everything!
The flavor combination of applewood smoke and white cheddar cheese is a new one for us. The potently funky and salty white cheddar cheese interplays quite well against the smoke; and the flavors definitely compliment the crispy, medium sized popcorn kernels.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
