Review of Skinny Pop Sweet & Salty Popcorn

Review of Skinny Pop Sweet & Salty Popcorn

Now I have to confess to being a popcorn addict. It is often a safe dairy free treat for me to enjoy. On a recent trip to the co-op several packets of Skinny Pop popcorn caught my attention. I first discovered this brand of popcorn on a trip to America and thoroughly enjoyed it. So I was a little excited to see a sweet & salty flavour and just had to grab a packet to try.

Review of Skinny Pop Sweet & Salty Popcorn

I loved the simple design of the packaging in black and white with the vibrant pink theme intermingled with this. It is clearly labelled as being gluten free. Onto the ingredients list popped corn, sugar, sunflower oil and sea salt are listed. There are no allergens highlighted in the ingredients list and there is no may contain warning.
Review of Skinny Pop Sweet & Salty Popcorn

On opening the packet I was greeted by an aroma that I associate with plain popcorn with a faint hint of salt noted. I did my usual close sniff up test and the subtle undertones of saltines intensified slightly with a hint of sweetness intermingled with this. On looking closely inside the bag the popcorn looked like regular plain popcorn intermingled with a few pieces of popcorn which had a sugar coating. The texture of the popcorn was just right. I experienced a combination of textures, the softness of the salty popcorn followed by an intermittent slight crunchiness from the sweet popcorn. On biting into the popcorn I immediately got a the flavour that I experience when eating plain popcorn with a slight saltines noted. This was sporadically intermingled by the taste of sugar from the pieces of sweet popcorn, the strength of which was spot on.  I personally liked that this  was predominantly a savoury popcorn with just a hint of sweetness noted.

So would I recommend this flavour of popcorn? Yes I would. I liked everything about this popcorn from its vibrant pink packaging, through to its aroma flavour and textures. So if you follow a dairy free, and or gluten free diet why not give this popcorn a try as a treat. So thank you Skinny Pop Popcorn for producing a nice popcorn that I can enjoy.

      Hi, Yes the packaging is very girlie, I’m more of a savoury person so the balance of sweetness was just right for me.

    That sounds light and delicious! I was worried when I heard about it that it would be flavorless. I have quite a few gluten-intolerant friends so I’m always looking for fun snacks to have out at Wine night and I think this might be a great new addition! Thanks for linking to #FabFridayPost
