This sort of stuff is just not our thing. We have of course tried various different chocolate flavored snacks over the years, one of which was actually chocolate coated such as these, but when it comes down to it, we are not sweets people! There is a specific reason why we review chips and pretzels and popcorn. We love salt! We can enjoy a combination of the sweet and salty, but when there is no salt present, or at least none distinguishable, we simply have a difficult time of reviewing them objectively. Such is the case here…!
All that being said, if chocolate, in this case especially dark chocolate, is right up your alley, or suits your fancy, or gets your motor going, then we’re pretty sure that you would love this stuff! Because, even we could see past the existence of any salt, and recognize the quality of product that we were tasting. In fact, some of us here at Chip Review may have even loved it!
There’s just something about the combination of some fantastically light and crispy popcorn kernels, coated with a sweet thin kiss of caramel, enveloped in a rich, creamy, slightly sweet and bitter layer of some of the best dark chocolate we have ever tasted. The combination just works! And despite our own personal reservations regarding the lack of salt, we just can’t deny or argue with how well balanced and tasty this stuff is!
Although we may not be buying this stuff for ourselves in the future, we’ll stick with Cobs Cheddar Cheese Popcorn, we do know plenty of people who would absolutely enjoy receiving a bag of this stuff from us as a gift!
As always, these are our thoughts. Agree or disagree, make sure to let us know.
