Is dill pickle flavored popcorn becoming a thing? This would mark the 4th pickle popcorn variation that we have tried in approximately the last year!?
This flavor, this popcorn, has to be better than the other new popcorn we tried from Old Dutch right? That’s right, Old Dutch’s cheddar bacon popcorn was pretty bad!
OK, so this stuff is better than Old Dutch’s Bacon Cheddar Popcorn, so that’s a plus. In fact, it is also way better than Trader Joe’s new-ish version of dill pickle popcorn – Popcorn in a Pickle. But, despite that, this is still only so-so popcorn.
Decent sour-vinegar level, and coverage of real dill weed. The flavor is there, and tastes pretty good, but the popcorn quality is not the best. The kernels were too meaty, and toothsome. No light and crispy crunch here. More like a heavy chew!
You know what? We’re beginning to think that the two just aren’t meant to be. Dill pickle and popcorn should call it quits, and go back to their old, time tested, partners. We’re talking about you – dill pickle & potato, and cheddar cheese & popcorn.
