Review of Proper Corn Smooth Peanut & Almond Popcorn

Now I have to confess to being a big fan of popcorn. It can often be a sweet treat for me to enjoy as most tends to be dairy free. They have started to stock several new treats at the gym that I can enjoy with a nice cup of tea. One of the recent additions being Proper Corn popcorn. My friend asked if I fancied some popcorn with my cup of tea of course how could I refuse. I didn’t know what flavour to choose so she opted for the peanut & almond one. To be fair I was just excited that she could pick any packet and I could have it, happy days.

I liked the packaging of this popcorn from the colouring through to the cascading popcorn at the top and the peanut jumping out of its shell. On the back of the packaging it is clearly labelled as being gluten and wheat free and suitable for vegans. The allergens highlighted in the ingredients list are almonds and peanuts.

On opening the bag I was greeted by a subtle aroma of peanut with an undertone of almond. I did my usual close sniff up test and this didn’t change. On closer inspection inside the bag the popcorn was nicely eveningly coated with its flavourings. On biting into the popcorn I immediately got the same subtle flavours hitting my taste buds. The peanut was definitely the predominant flavour which was then followed by the almond. The flavours worked really well together and their subtleness was spot on. As for the texture of this popcorn it was slightly crunchy and then light an airy. Just what I want a nice popcorn to be like. This packet of popcorn hit the spot nicely and I was pleasantly full until my tea later that evening.

So would I recommend this flavour of popcorn, definitely. It is nice to have a new flavour to try. In fact I would go as far to say it is the nicest flavour popcorn I have tried and I have tried a fair few. Everything about this particular popcorn was spot on from its flavours through to its textures. To top it of it is also low in calories. So if you follow a dairy free, gluten free, wheat free or vegan diet than I recommend that you give this popcorn a try. Thank you to Proper Corn for producing a new flavour of popcorn that I can enjoy.

  1. Did you find at the end you had peanut buttery fingers? I really enjoyed this flavour too. I’m so pleased popcorn has become more than just salty or sweet!
