As I mentioned in my review of the Trader Joe’s Movie Theater Popcorn I am a popcorn nut and so are my kids. I really love the Olive Oil popcorn and I thought the Movie Theater popcorn was almost as good as you get at the movie theater except it’s not as hot or salty. I can do without the salt, but I really like warm popcorn. That’s not always a possibility and when you want popcorn right now! They also make a popcorn you stick in the microwave, which my kids love but it’s got too much fake butter and salt on it. The Organic popping corn that you make yourself is mediocre and I will do a full review on it soon.
I saw this in the “new” section today and ran over jumping up and down screaming! Actually, I just grabbed a bag and stuck it in my cart quietly… but I really like these adult popcorns I’ve been seeing the past couple of years. The first I had was popcorn with truffle salt and that is super great. I’ve heard of people putting herbs and stuff on their popcorn but hadn’t tried any. I like the way that Trader’s takes something normal like popcorn and then transforms it into an adult product!
So, here we are… popcorn with “herbs and spices” what might they be? They tell you right on the back, it’s dried dill, celery seeds and onion powder which sounds a bit like Poultry Seasoning. First the popcorn is popped perfectly and then lightly salted and lightly sprinkled with the herbs and spices. The flavorings aren’t overpowering but very subtle and I really love it. I sat down and ate half the bag! I would be proud to serve this at the next dinner party as an appetizer without a problem!
I’m not sure the Movie Theater popcorn or the Olive Oil popcorn is still around and I was kind of surprised that this wasn’t in the latest Fearless Flyer. I’m sure it will be in the next one. Next thing you know they will be coming out with a Speculoos covered popcorn or something goofy like that. I don’t think this will be around more than a few months so eat up while you can and learn to make your own version of adult popcorn!
I’m going to rate this Trader Joe’s Popcorn with Herbs and Spices 8 Bells!
