You other snackers know where it’s at, Yeah!
OK, that’s enough of that, Yeah!!
We know we’ve already used the above joke, but it is too good to pass on (seriously, who names their popcorn SexyPop?!?)
Apparently, that someone is Robert Ehrlich, creator of SexyPop, and of the wildly popular and iconic Pirate’s Booty and Veggie Booty. We guess we shouldn’t be surprised from someone who named their original snacks after a pirate’s butt!?
Still, the name of course begs the question, what exactly is SexyPop going for with their name? Is their popcorn somehow sexy in and of itself? Does anyone out there think popcorn is actually sexy?? At least with this flavor, we see the correlation with the cheeky Brazilian Coconut named flavor! If anyone out there has any opinions or thoughts on this, please share below.
SexyPop’s Brazilian Coconut Popcorn is notable, and certainly something we would not mind munching on again, if it were sitting out at a party where there was nothing else being offered. In other words, we wouldn’t ever search this popcorn out again. The coconut flavored / coconut oil popcorn seems to be a bit of a trend going on right now, and our personal favorite is still Lesser Evil’s Buddha Bowl. Similar to Lesser Evil, SexyPop’s popcorn exhibited that unmistakeable sweet, coconut flavor. We would have appreciated a lot more salt to offset the flavor. In the end, the popcorn felt a little one note. SexyPop’s butterfly style popcorn (as it is apparently called) is a lighter popcorn version than some of the other styles we have reviewed (what those are technically called, we have no clue…maybe some other insect?). Even though the popcorn was fresh and crispy, it really could have used a lot more salt, and a good splash of some butter or fat or something!
Was it sexy? No, not in any way that we can think of.
As always, these are our thoughts. Agree or disagree, make sure to let us know.
