Review of co-op loved by us sweet popcorn

Now I have to confess to being a popcorn addict. It is often a safe dairy free treat for me to enjoy. I have had a bit of a sweet tooth lately. Whilst queueing at my local co-op I saw their loved by us sweet popcorn. So I grabbed a packet on the of chance that I could have it. This may sound bonkers but I knew that my other half would eat it if it was not safe for me.
I loved the pink packaging of this popcorn with the popcorn looking like they were popping out of top of a box. On the front of the packaging it is clearly labelled as being suitable for vegans. On the ingredients list to the popcorn popped maize, sugar and sunflower oil are listed. There are no allergens highlighted in the ingredients list and there is no may contain warning.
On opening the bag I was greeted by a slightly artificially sweet aroma. I did my usual close sniff up test and this didn’t change. On closer inspection inside the bag the popcorn looked like random pieces of the popcorn had a coating of sugar. On biting into the popcorn I immediately got a subtle taste of sugar the strength of this was spot on. It gave the popcorn a pleasant taste which wasn’t too sweet as not all the popcorn had a sweet coating. I personally think that if all of the popcorn had been coated it would have been to sickly. The texture of the popcorn was just right. I experienced a combination of textures, on the sugary pieces it was slightly hard and crunchy followed by the softness of the popcorn. This was intermingled with the slightly crunchy then soft texture that I expect to get from popcorn. This popcorn was a great to treat to eat whilst enjoying a film at home.
So would I recommend this flavour of popcorn? Gosh yes I would. It may not be the healthiest popcorn I have had, but who cares it was nice to have a sweet treat to enjoy. I liked everything about this popcorn from its girlie pink packaging, through to its flavour and textures. So if you follow a dairy free or vegan diet why not give this popcorn a try as a sweet treat. So thank you co-op for producing a nice popcorn I can enjoy as a treat.

      Yes I’m normally a savoury person but this made a nice change. Oh and the fact it is often difficult to find dairy free sweet popcorn.

    These sound good. Have you ever tried the Propercorn brand? They do a brill vegan sweet and salty flavour. They’re my favourite!
