Tea Suggestion:

This would make a tasty treat to accompany any tea – hot or cold – but since it’s summer, this tasted exceptional with a tall glass of iced tea.   I’d recommend something lightly sweet (this Kettle Corn has such an enjoyable sweetness on its own, you don’t want to interfere with that!) and fruit-flavored, so I chose this Sea Breeze Green Tea from 52Teas.  The tea has a delicate sweetness and a pleasant tartness that offered additional contrast to the salty and sweet flavor of the Kettle Corn.  A delicious pair.

What I Think:

In a word:  YUMMY!

This Kettle Corn is perfect.  It is light and crunchy and sweet and salty … everything I want from Kettle Corn.  The only thing that could make this even better is if I were at the fair or a carnival and I was eating it warm.  But since I’m not at a fair or carnival, this is the next best thing!

My photo is terrible (I’m no photographer) but I wanted to show what the package I received looked like.

The kernels are popped up big and fluffy, and they seem to melt in my mouth.  Each fluffy kernel has been coated with a crispy sweet coating that is lighter in flavor and texture than the typical caramel.  I like that the sugar coating isn’t grainy, it’s been melted and covers each morsel of popcorn with just the right amount of sweetness and saltiness to offer a tantalizing contrast of flavors that keeps me happily eating.

And what also impresses me is that all of the kernels are big and fluffy.  I don’t have a bunch of unpopped or even half-popped kernels in this bag, and the soft, fluffy popcorn is such a nice textural contrast to the crackly crispness of the sweet coating.

This tasty kettle corn doesn’t taste too oily, but there is a light buttery note to this.  It also doesn’t feel too oily, nor does it feel sticky.  It is one of those snacks that you can enjoy anytime, anywhere without worry that it will render your hand too messy.  It’s one of those tasty snacks that can not only satiate the hunger but also satisfy those cravings for something sweet AND something salty.

My Final Thoughts:

I feel I want to finish this review with the same word I started it with:  YUMMY!  This was really a delicious treat.  It’s a good thing I had my daughter here to help me eat some of this – because I probably would have polished off the 4 ounce bag in one sitting.  And her assessment of this popcorn is the same as mine:  YUMMY!
