This Gourmet Popcorn Company Has Its Kernels Wrapped In Different Flavors

To be honest there really hasn’t been much innovation in microwave popcorn in decades. That’s why when I found out about Opopop having kernels wrapped in different flavors, I was intrigued. Because this sort of change and added novelty to microwave popcorn could really shake up that market.

Claiming to be the first of its kind, Opopop has Flavor Wrapped Popcorn Kernels that release delicious flavors once popped. And right now they’re offering a full Opopop popcorn kit that includes the following flavors:

  • Cinnalicious
  • Maui Heat
  • Fancy Butter
  • Vanilla Cake Pop
  • Chedapeno
  • Salted Umami

In addition, the kit also comes with an extra Fancy Butter sachet to test the optimal time on your microwave to ensure no burnt popcorn and a custom BPA-free microwave popper that doubles as a collapsable serving bowl.

This Opopop Discovery Kit is pretty much a starter pack to their innovative popcorn and can be purchased for $40 here.

Ruffles’ Newest Flavor Is Flamin’ Hot BBQ

Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum is the face of Ruffles’ brand new flavor, Flamin’ Hot BBQ. After linking with Lakers champion and superstar, Anthony Davis, last year on a tasty Lime & Jalapeno flavor, the chip house that ridges made is dipping into the NBA talent pool again with their continued partnership with the league.

This is the first time that any Frito-Lays snack has combined with the immensely popular Flamin’ Hot variety, proving to be quite the unique offering right out the gate. For Tatum to put his true stamp on this new Ruffles flavor, he tapped into his St. Louis roots, a city known for its bbq and spicy food. The result is a snack that’s like some baby back ribs slathered in some spicy bbq sauce, all in chip form.

Ruffles Flamin’ Hot BBQ is now available now at most retailers nationwide for $4.29 (8 oz. multi-serve) and $1.99 (2.5 oz. single-serve).

Cheez-It Launches New Cheesy Loaded Popcorn Snacks

Snack aisle popcorn definitely has its convenience. If I’m invested in something on TV, there’s a pretty slim chance I’ll want to wait for my popcorn to finish in the microwave. However, the only caveat is if I’m not making microwave popcorn, my snack bag needs to be pre-loaded with some kind of flavor outside of just plain salt.

Cheez-It has just released a new Loaded Popcorn line that packs just as much, if not more, cheese as its cracker predecessor.

The two flavors released are Cheez-It Loaded Cheddar Popcorn and Cheez-It Loaded White Cheddar Popcorn.

Arguably the best part of any cheese dusted popcorn is the layer of cheese crust that develops on your fingers once you’re halfway through the bag. Delicious.

Cheez-It Loaded Popcorn has been gradually rolling out to store snack aisles nationwide through February. The snack bags will be available for a limited time.

The complex flavors of Everything But The Bagel Seasoning is quickly gaining popularity, especially after Trader Joe’s released their EBTB seasoning in early 2017 for customers to throw on anything and everything. 

One snack, I’ll admit, I enjoyed adding the medley of spices to were potato chips. Luckily, Trader Joe’s latest snack item takes away that middle step and serving up Everything But The Bagel Seasoned Kettle Cooked Potato Chips. 

The new snack boasts crunchy kettle-cooked chips fried in small batches and seasoned with the popular Trader Joe’s Blend. This includes salt, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper. 

You’ll be able to find the new bag of chips at Trader Joe’s locations nationwide in their snack section. It also can’t hurt to grab a bottle of EBTB Seasoning Blend while you’re there to enhance these chips even further.
