Pop Gormet Popcorn (Review)

 
On a recent trip to Marshalls with my 16 year old I found the most amazing treat.  There it was among the cell phone and mp3 accessories I found POP Gourmet Popcorn.  There as I waited on the line to check out along with the specialty chocolates and coffees I found a snack that makes my mouth water just thinking about it right now.  I had heard of this brand before but was never able to find it in any of the stores where I usually shop.

I had seen the company a few years back featured on Oprah a few years back.  She absolutely loved the white truffle bliss popcorn.

We picked up a few bags of Chicago Style and White Truffle Bliss.  For anyone who doesn't know what Chicago style popcorn is, it's a mixture of caramel corn and cheddar corn. It is absolutely amazing.  The popcorn simply melts in your mouth.  The flavors are true to what the taste is supposed be.  There is about four cups of popcorn in every bag so if you want to portion it out for a delightful snack this is perfect.  Now white truffle bliss, if you've never tasted truffle oil before this could be a hit or miss for some people.  Both the smell and taste will surprise you.  It's an acquired taste to say the least, but like Oprah I love it.  It is the most delicious savory popcorn I have ever tasted.  It's tossed in both white  truffle oil and white truffle sea salt.  The smell was so aromatic that I could never sneak and eat it as I usually do with my snacks(because my children are always lurking).  The taste is just divine.  My two year old would literally sniff and look all over the kitchen for the bags of white truffle bliss.  Now like her I'm always looking for POP Gourmet Popcorn white truffle bliss whenever I' m out.

POP Gourmet Popcorn is a Washington State based company.  The popcorn is all natural and is made from quality ingredients.  It's also gluten free, although it is made in a facility that processes nuts, soy, gluten and dairy.  So there is a slight allergen factor.

POP Gourmet Popcorn comes in a variety of flavors.  There are the classic flavors Gourmet Cheddar, Chicago Style, and Premium Caramel.  There are the savory flavors the Cascade Mix, Rogue Blue, and White Truffle Bliss. And of course the sweet flavors Chocolate Salted Caramel, Ultra Premium Caramel and Maui Waui.

The popcorn comes in resealable bags and retails for about 3 bucks.  You can find POP popcorn at Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Hudson News, Alaska Airlines, Safeco Field, Value Drugs and Lazy Acres Markets.  Or you can purchase it online here .
