POP! Gourmet Popcorn

Popcorn -- it's been around since the beginning of time. And even though it is timeless, it isn't the kind of thing I hear people say they are craving. But, after trying POP! Gourmet Popcorn, I can truly say that I am a convert. Now I'm craving popcorn and eating it too.

POP! makes a bunch of flavors of gourmet popcorn, three of which are vegan. I must say that the best one is the Fire Corn Jalapeno Popcorn. The look and feel of the brand is different because it represents a partnership between Greg B.A. Anders and POP! Greg was a fighter pilot who prepared his Fire Corn for the pilots as they gathered after their training flights to unwind and debrief. It's a spicy mix of fiery popcorn and real jalapeno slices that are slow-fired to a satisfying crisp. It is the only popcorn that I've ever felt is truly out of this world!

The other flavors are incredibly good too...especially the White Truffle Bliss. Made with just popcorn, olive oil, Spanish white truffle olive oil, and truffle salt, you get a light airy popcorn with just a perfect hint of truffle. It also comes in a "lite" version that is just 40 calories per serving.

Another delicious flavor is the Sunflower Oil & Sea Salt, another "lite" one that comes in a small single serving bag. It is a bit salty, but still has great flavor.

Best of all, their flavors are gluten-free, non-GMO, and devoid of trans fat. POP! gourmet is sold at gourmet stores across the country including Dean & Deluca in DC for $5.99 per bag. You can find store locations here. I'm just happy to have found yet another healthy, light snack.

Full Disclosure: Although the products were provided to me for free to review, that in no way influenced my veracious opinion.
