The Best Flavoured Popcorns

Popcorn is no longer just for the movies. Nowadays the snack has developed into a culinary delight that people can be seen munching at parties with a glass of wine, or at their Christmas do, along with the canapes. When you mention popcorn however, most people think of the kind you microwave; or even worse, the stale, artificially-buttered type from the cinema. But have a look at the varieties we have listed below, and next time you are invited out for a soiree, take some posh popcorn with you. Your chums will thank you for it!

Lord Poppington’s Chili and Lime – £11.40 (pack of 12)

Popcorn is a wholegrain product and is also high in fibre. Fibre slows down digestion, making you feel fuller for longer. Gorgeous combination of fiery chili and citrus cooling limes. Ingredients include Popped Corn, Rapeseed Oil, Flavouring. From www.amazon.com

Patsy’s (Hammonds) Chicago Style Caramel & Cheese Gourmet Popcorn – £3.49

Sounds weird but it really works! A mix of caramel and cheddar cheese flavour popcorn made by Patsy’s (Hammond’s candy company) in the USA. Fluffy clouds of hybrid popcorn cooked in copper kettles to capture just the right flavour. Has to be tried! From www.americansweets.co.uk

Joe & Seph’s Gourmet Mince Pie Popcorn – £5.99

This high quality popcorn really does taste like a deliciously fruity, brandy-infused mince pie with a hint of almond. It’s so Christmassy you can almost hear St Cliff every time you pop a kernel in your gob. This phenomenally moreish popcorn is the result of years of research and development (it says here). Air-popped as opposed to the standard (and unhealthy) oil method, it’s unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. From www.firebox.com

American Gary Poppins Aged Cheddar Popcorn – £3.49

This one’s the star at any party. Rich cheddar cheese – more cheddar cheese flavor than any you’ve ever tasted. Great all by itself, it’s perfection when mixed with caramel or kettle or natural. This is the one they all come back for. From www.americansweets.co.uk

Tyrrells Proper Popcorn Sticky Toffee Pudding – £5.90 (pack of 10)

All the lip-smacking brilliance of England’s best-loved pud, without the indignity of having to loosen your belt afterwards. And if you like these, look out for their other Proper Popcorn flavours: Sea Salted, Mature Cheddar Cheese, Sour Cream & Jalapeño chilli, and Sweet & Salty. www.amazon.com

Peter Popple Popcorn Salt n Vinegar – £6.90 (pack of 10)

Peter Popple’s Popcorn is a popaliciously healthy snack for kids and all the family! Made with natural ingredients and flavours, our corn is air popped so doesn’t use lots of greasy oils to cook!

Bacon Popcorn – £5.99

Brought to you by the culinary mavericks/nutters behind Baconnaise, Bacon Pop is a microwavable taste sensation. Developed to cure (geddit?) bacony cravings, it knocks regular popcorn out of the pen in terms of taste and gissanotherability. Think Frazzles multiplied by a million. To pilfer a well worn tagline, once you pop you just can’t stop. Mmm…smoky popcorn! From www.firebox.com
