Popcorn Indiana Gourmet Kettlecorn (Original) Review

Popcorn Indiana Gourmet Kettlecorn PopcornPopcorn, Indiana Gourmet Kettlecorn prompted a plethora of thoughts to run through my mind as I stood in the aisle staring at the bright red bag sitting upon the shelf. The intriguing packaging states that this sweet and salty snack food is authentic (whatever that is supposed to mean), all-natural (that's good), packed fresh daily (... aren't all products that come from a busy plant that's open every day?), provides 16g of whole grains per serving (love that), is produced in Popcorn, Indiana (that's cute) and contains no trans fat (I would hope not). After all this thinking, and noticing that there was a two for one sale was going on, I picked up two bags and hoped for the best.

The popcorn is about the same shape and size as what you will find in your average bag of microwave popcorn. What sets this corn apart is the subtle sugary coating - the coating is subtle, but the sweetness ... not so much. Some of the pieces have little clusters of sugar, while others have no coating at all; but, for the most part, the coating is only a sheer covering that gives the kernels a glossy caramel color. If you are in the mood for a sweet, crunchy snack, Popcorn Indiana Gourmet Kettlecorn might be just the thing for you. I say "might" because the sweetness can be a bit overwhelming at times.

Each 2 cup serving provides 130 calories from 5 grams of total fat (8% of the daily value), no saturated fat, 130 mg of sodium (5% of the DV), 2 grams of fiber (8% of the DV), 6 grams of sugars and 1 gram of protein. The only ingredients adorning this popcorn are sugar, canola oil and sea salt.

I purchased two 4 ounce bags of Popcorn Indiana Gourmet Kettlecorn Popcorn at CVS for $2.50 (buy one, get one free). If I find them on sale again (I do not see this brand too often), I will grab a bag for the pantry, however, I will let them find me, not the other way around. I would opt more often for Orville Redenbacher's Smart Pop Kettle Korn instead. On another note, there are some flavors that sound extremely intriguing, such as Sweet & Tangy BBQ and Buffalo Cheddar. Have you ever tried Popcorn Indiana products?
