Smartfood specializes in popcorn, and other corn based products. We have tried a few of these corn products, and for the most part we are impressed with Smartfood.
The newest addition to the Smartfood family is Spicy Jalapeño Ranch Popcorn. The very large, and very green, bags are certainly hard to miss on the grocery store snack aisle shelves.
That unmissable large green bag contained plump, and toothsome white popcorn kernels. The full bodied popcorn, exuded a light and crispy crunch.
The popcorn is heavily seasoned with a creamy white powder containing plenty of green specks.
The seasoning was very nice at first. Popcorn coated in a salty, garlicky, creamy ranch dusting, that included just enough spicy vegetal jalapeño notes to let you know that it was there.
But, after crunching a handful of handfuls we felt like this particular seasoning was a bit much for popcorn to handle. A bit overwhelming. Like we were just eating crunchy seasoning on it’s own. The popcorn was unable to shine through.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
Popcorn discovered at Jewel Osco; Clarendon Hills, Illinois
