Kernel Season's Caramel Popcorn Seasoning Review

Kernel Season's Popcorn SeasoningDirector Sydney Pollack said, "Well, I was born and raised in the Midwest, in Indiana specifically, and my childhood was full of weekend movies, you know, the Saturday and Sunday popcorn movies." I'm also from the Midwest, and maybe that's one of the reasons I love popcorn so much! I often have popcorn every day, whether it's a mid-afternoon mini bag of butter flavor or a big bag of post-dinner kettle corn. One of the best things about popcorn is that you can dress it up in so many different ways - it can be topped with a spray of buttery topping, with a sprinkling of cinnamon and Splenda, or with a even spoonful of Parmesan cheese (don't believe me, just try it).

I came across Kernel Season's Popcorn Seasoning shakers at the grocery store when they were on sale at 2 for $5.00. The idea of these seasonings is quite appealing - a handy shaker of popcorn topping in an assortment of different flavors (White Cheddar, Butter, Nacho Cheddar, Parmesan and Garlic, Ranch, Sour Cream and Onion, Salt, Caramel, Kettle Corn, Jalapeno, Cajun, Barbecue, Apple Cinnamon, and Chocolate Marshmallow). With such an assortment, it was hard to decide what to try, but I decided on Caramel.

I popped a bag of plain popcorn as soon as I got home, eager to try my new seasoning. It added a slightly sweet but not overwhelming - I liked it. The taste was a nice change of pace from butter and salt flavored popcorn. Each 1/4 tsp serving provides 5 calories from 1 gram of sugar - so depending on how much you're eating, the sugar grams can start to add up.

Kernel Season's Butter Popcorn Seasoning Review

Kernel Season's Butter Popcorn SeasoningPopcorn is a fun, easy to make and filling snack. However, many of the microwave popcorn have buttery flavors that make them calorie laden. While some people have found a healthy favorite (mine is Orville Redenbacher Smart Pop), many of the healthier varieties are bland and simply uninteresting. Hence, when I spotted Kernel Season's Butter Popcorn Seasoning, I decided to give it a try.

First and foremost, trying to get the shaker lid and paper seal off of the bottle takes a knife and some major muscle. Thankfully, you only have to do that once; then, all you have to do is twist and shake.

I put that aside and watched the light yellow powder grace a bowl of fresh-from-the-microwave popcorn. If you do not mix your popcorn, then you will be able to taste the buttery/salty flavor that the seasoning provides. The buttery flavoring is very natural tasting (and contains no MSG). However, the minute that you dig your hand into the bowl and mix the kernels around, the seasoning falls to the bottom of the bowl. So you probably need to spray with a low calorie cooking oil spray first.
