Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn – Movie Lovers Buttered Popcorn
Rating: ©©–1/2 chips (tolerable)
Did someone say date night? Movie theater here we come. But, why go to the Cineplex, and spend tons of dough, when you can enjoy all of the pleasures of digging into that same buttery tub of freshly popped popcorn from the comfort of your own living room?!? Well, if that is what you are expecting, or hoping for, when you reached for your store bought, pre-packaged, Oogie’s Buttered Popcorn, then we are sorry, but you are definitely in for a letdown.
That is not to say that Oogie’s Movie Lovers Buttered Popcorn is bad necessarily, it’s just not really comparable to true movie theater popcorn. We’re sorry to have to be the ones to tell you, but we have not tasted any powdered snack seasoning that really imitates real butter flavor, and it is not really practical to think that real melted butter can be used (sorry Angie). What we would equate this popcorn to would be cooled down, butter flavored, microwave popcorn – that we did not have to microwave. Anyone who has ever tasted a bag of butter flavored microwave popcorn knows what we are talking about. That glowing yellow, extremely (lip stinging) salty, slightly butter flavor resembling, powdered seasoning, that coats each and every kernel, along with your fingers and sides of the bag. The seasoning itself is actually rather tasty, especially when you do not expect it to deliver any real, rich, fatty, delicious, butter flavor.
Similar to Oogie’s other popcorns we’ve reviewed, these popcorn kernels were on the smaller side, and definitely had a bit of that chewy, toothsome, staleness going on to them. So, if you are really in the mood for some real buttered movie theater popcorn, or looking for a really great pre-packaged version of buttered popcorn (like Ziggy’s), then we would tell you to skip Oogie’s Movie Lovers popcorn. However, if you are just looking to get your fix of fake butter powdered popcorn, akin to microwave popcorn without the necessity of needing electricity or a microwave, then this popcorn could surely do the trick.
As always we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree. Let us know.
