Over two years ago we tasted Ziggy’s Kettle Corn for the first time here at Chip Review. To call the experience deliciously amazing would be an understatement. While Ziggy’s Buttery Bliss Kettle Corn was a lip-smacking rendition of the classic combination, it was Ziggy’s two other flavors (Sweet & Salty and Happenin’ Jalapeno) that really knocked our socks off! In fact, just this past year we finally put together our Top 5 Popcorn list, and of course Ziggy made the cut!
And just recently, Ziggy released 4 all-new flavors!!
This is some tasty delicious popcorn!
The sweet and salty kettle corn interplay still remains the most pronounced aspect of this popcorn, but there is most definitely an underlying buffalo wing-ish essence to the whole combo.
The seasoning doesn’t necessarily taste extremely like real buffalo wing flavors. We really didn’t get any of that aromatically pungent buffalo wing vinegar nasal burn. Ziggy’s Buffalo seasoning relies more on the acidic-sour touch, which seemed to work because we couldn’t stop eating this stuff!
Great combination of tangy, sweet, salty, zippy, spicy, zingy, sour-y, and did we mention spicy-spicy-spicy?!? Seriously, lots of heat – WHOA!! The Cayenne took a little bit of time, maybe 30-45 seconds, to resonate and get going but then BAM! POW! Wowsers!!
Kickin’ Buffalo Wing is probably our most favorite flavor combination of Ziggy’s after his fantastic Happenin’ Jalapeno, which in our books most likely cannot be topped. We love the fresh vegetal jalapeno chile heat, mingling with the sweet & salty – delicious!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
