I tried it on the kids when they got home from school and they both wolfed down a big bowl of it as their afternoon snack. Then my wife came home from yoga and she tore in the 2nd half of the bag and left about 20 kernels at the bottom of the bag for me to finish (you know how women are, they never like to finish off anything!) She just kept raving about how good it was as she piled the popcorn into her mouth.
If you are looking for popcorn that is super buttery, this is not it. It has a nice mild buttery flavor and lightly salted. Like the Olive Oil Popcorn, there is never an un-popped kernal at the bottom. Speaking of the Olive Oil Popcorn, it made our top 10 list of 2011 mainly on my wife’s insistence that it be put on there. What could be better than corn popped in Olive Oil and sprinkled with sea salt??? Well, here it is, popcorn with butter! Just look at the ingredients, Popcorn, Oil, Butter and Sea Salt! Yum! The only downside it isn’t fresh from the popper like a movie theater, so we can’t be perfect here.
If you can I would sneak some into the theater and save yourself a ton of money at $1.99 a bag and compare that to the $10 a bucket at your local cineplex and it’s very tempting to try and stuff it in your jacket!
I am going to rate this Trader Joe’s Movie Theater Popcorn 9 Bells!
