REVIEW: World Market Presents – Truffle Butter (a frighteningly delicious movie theater popcorn)

Rating: ©©© chips  (notable)

World Market - Truffle Butter PopcornWe have to hand it to World Market, they sure know how to market for the holidays, and with some pretty witty packaging!

Upon opening World Market’s clear bag of popcorn (yes clear, we said witty packaging, not quality), the truffle and butter aromas were terrifyingly upfront, and undeniable.  Even scarier (demonstrated by the Bride of Frankenstein’s face expression) was just how frighteningly fake both the butter and truffle flavors were!  Seriously!!  Almost sickeningly so…

And yet, the popcorn is very eatable, sort of addicting, and hard to stop munching on.  Weird, rich and sweet butter cream mingles with an earthy, and pungent aroma.  The popcorn is certainly not lacking in flavor like other truffle flavor snacks we have tried, but then again, it doesn’t taste as authentic as some either.

Also worth noting is the inclusion of MUSHROOM JUICE CONCENTRATE among the ingredients.  What else can we say?!?  We’ll just leave this review with that!
