What is more American than popcorn? How about Thanksgiving Stuffing flavored popcorn? Leave it to Trader Joe’s to mash up two completely different things into one product! Trader Joe’s has once again captivated our taste buds with their innovative Thanksgiving Stuffing Seasoned Popcorn, a delightful fusion of autumnal flavors and crunchy popcorn goodness. This unique snack artfully embodies the essence of Thanksgiving, making it a perfect treat for the holiday season and beyond.
Trader Joe’s has two very similar products. Trader Joe’s Thanksgiving Stuffing Seasoned Popcorn and Trader Joe’s Thanksgiving Stuffing Kettle Chips. The Kettle chips have been around a very long time, I want to say over 10 years coming out every Thanksgiving and they are quite popular around the holidays. People hoard them for the rest of the year because they like them. In my review of the Kettle chips, I liked them quite a bit and if you like that stuffing flavor (predominately sage and garlic) go get some of the chips.
But we are talking about the Thanksgiving Stuffing Seasoned Popcorn here. I love popcorn, it’s healthier for you than potato chips. There is much less fat associated with them. I do have to admit that the salty, fatty combination of potato chips is much more flavorful, but you know you can’t eat cheeseburgers every meal without paying the consequences. Same with potato chips!
The popcorn itself is light and airy, using butterfly-style kernels that provide the ideal canvas for the rich and aromatic seasoning blend. The careful selection of spices such as celery seed, thyme, parsley, black pepper, and sage, evokes the familiar and comforting taste of traditional stuffing. This masterful combination of herbs and spices results in a snack that is both familiar and exciting, transporting you to the heart of autumn with each bite.
What makes this popcorn truly special is its versatility. It’s not just a snack for nibbling in front of a movie or packing in a school lunch; it’s also a wonderful addition to any Thanksgiving hors d’oeuvre table. Its savory flavors complement a variety of dishes and can even inspire creative culinary endeavors. For instance, combining a bag of this popcorn with dried cranberries and candied pecans creates a homemade snack mix that’s both festive and indulgent, perfect for holiday gatherings.
The flavors on the popcorn are not as pronounced as the potato chips, which in my mind is a good thing. I really don’t like heavy handed flavors on my popcorn.
Trader Joe’s Thanksgiving Stuffing Seasoned Popcorn is not just a snack; it’s an experience. It’s a reminder of the warmth and joy of Thanksgiving, encapsulated in a delicious, easy-to-enjoy form. Whether you’re a fan of stuffing, a lover of popcorn, or just someone who appreciates the flavors of fall, this popcorn is sure to delight. It’s a testament to Trader Joe’s ability to turn simple concepts into extraordinary treats, making every bite a celebration of the season.
I am going to give this popcorn 8 out of 10 Bells!
