We are all familiar with the occasional school fundraiser. Either the local kid stops by the Chip Review headquarters and asks us to buy a wreath, or a candle, to help pay for his trip to Mount Rushmore, or a coworker brings their kid’s fundraiser pamphlet into the office and simply plunks it on your desk to avoid the awkwardness of them asking you to buy some of their kid’s crappy treats to help their school afford the new football field.
Well, as you have probably guessed it, we scored this popcorn through a local fundraiser, and believe it or not, it was almost worth its over-inflated fundraiser price!
Now, we are fairly certain that this is no Non-GMO popcorn (NNGMO). As the popcorn itself is HUGE!
As for the Texas Cheddar Habanero seasoning, well that is definitely the star of the show.
Ultra cheesy! A tangy and salty cheddar cheese powder liberally coated every single kernel.
Poppin Popcorn was not joking about the habanero aspect, as this stuff did in fact bring the heat on the tail end. We couldn’t actually taste any habanero, but we could feel it.
Most tasters agreed that this stuff was lip-smacking, and overall it tasted like an extra spicy cheddar buffalo seasoning – which paired very well with popcorn.
So, the next time your co-worker approaches you with their kid’s fundraiser packet let this be known that inside those pages there may in fact be a hidden gem that is practically worth the price!
