Far too subtle, practically unrecognizable or indistinguishable, white truffle flavor! But, maybe it’s difficult to capture and accurately deliver the deliciously aromatic flavors of truffle onto popcorn? Nope, we’ve tasted and reviewed a handful of truffle flavored snacks (predominantly popcorn), and most of them have actually been lip-smacking!
We are so surprised with the verdict on this one. We have tried other Pop! Gourmet Popcorn and they have been stellar! So, how this one turned out so bad we don’t really understand! The pungent truffle aroma is present, and wafts into the air upon opening the bag but as soon as we tossed a handful of popcorn into our mouths everything delicious about popcorn and truffle disappears! The popcorn is bogged down with too much oil, with a sort of stale, lack-luster, soft crunch! No actual truffle flavor, and really no flavor of any kind – not even salt. We’re really starting to wonder if we were eating popcorn that had far exceeded its expiration date?! And to be truthfully honest, we don’t know for sure! We may have been. If that is the case, we should probably give this popcorn another shot, but until then this is our stance on Pop! Gourmet Popcorn White Truffle Bliss!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
