Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn – Movie Lovers Buttered Popcorn

Rating: ©©1/2 chips (tolerable)

Oogie's Gourmet Popcorn - Movie Theater Buttered Popcorn

Comments:

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.

Chip Review of the day…..

Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn – Sun-Dried Tomato & Parmesan

Rating: ©©-1/4 chips  (tolerable)

Oogie's Gourmet Popcorn - Sun-Dried Tomato & Parmesan

Comments:

And, so it is, that every great streak must come to an end…  It was an amazingly delicious popcorn run, but just when Chip Review thought that we may not ever taste another bad popcorn for as long as we all shall review, Oogie’s pops up, and delivers a rather mediocre gourmet popcorn for us to not enjoy….

Regardless of Oogie’s less-than-desirable Sun-Dried Tomato & Parmesan popcorn, we still feel like, 2013 is the Year of Great Popcorn.  We may only be half way through the 2013 calendar year, but we have already tasted, and reviewed, so many amazingly delicious popcorns.  Unfortunately, this popcorn is simply OK.  We don’t really have too much to complain about, but there is even less to be impressed with.

Oogie’s seasoning is definitely Parmesan cheese forward, followed by just the slightest dusting of sweet sun-dried tomato.  The flavor combination is all right in and of itself, but we don’t necessarily love it when combined with popcorn.  Especially, when that popcorn feels dry and dense in our mouths, forcing us to double check the expiration date.  Luckily, we were in the clear, but compared to the recent quality of popcorn we have tasted, this one simply does not compare.

As always we would love to hear what you think.  Agree or disagree.  Let us know.
