We certainly would not consider ourselves pessimists here at Chip Review, but upon opening G.H.’s bag of popcorn to the left, we would also certainly call this bag more than half empty with popcorn, or should we say not nearly half full.
In G.H. Cretors’ defense , we’re sure that there is some sort of logistical transport reasoning behind their bag-to-popcorn-to-air ratio, but quite frankly we found this bag’s fill level pretty disappointing.
Luckily the bag was filled with some pretty tasty popcorn!
Large white fluffy popcorn kernels, coated in a savory, slightly funky, white cheddar cheese powder.
Despite the mention of two types of spicy ingredients – both generic “chile pepper”, in addition to jalapeño – we really didn’t get very much chile flavor, or heat from the popcorn.
The white cheddar cheese seasoning did a fairly good job of making up for the lack of heat. A rich, and creamy, and tangy white cheese powder that sufficiently coated the popcorn.
Is this the greatest popcorn? No. Is it more than adequately eatable? Yes.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
Popcorn discovered at Whole Foods; Elmhurst, Illinois
