Others may not relish in the this deliciously sweet and salty, ying-yang, combination the way we do; but that would just mean that those people are wrong (just kidding, or are we?).
Popcorn, Indiana gives us a very respectable version of the classic combination.
Their caramel kernels are pretty straight forward. Glazed with a sweet and crackle-y brown caramel coating that hits the sweet tooth just right.
The cheddar cheese kernels on the other hand are a bit unique. Substantially coated with a dull, orange-ish yellow powder that tastes of generic Cheetos (and we mean that in the most complimentary way possible). You know what we are talking about – cheese seasoning that is devoid of any real, fatty, rich cheese essence, and yet can deliver a delightfully, tangy and salty, cheddar cheese flavor that hits the spot. Quite enjoyable.
The kernels themselves are full bodied, with plenty of crispy, fleshy chew.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
