I’m always up for trying new flavors of treats, especially popcorn. I think popcorn is one of the best snacks around. Buying premade gourmet popcorn means you don’t have to prepare your tasty snack either. All you have to do is pick out a flavor, purchase it, and you’ve got a snack you can take virtually anywhere. If you are interested in some of the different types of gourmet popcorn being offered on today’s market, then take a look at the following 7 yummy popcorn flavors to try. These are my top 7 that I’d love to taste!
7. Bacon and Cheese
Popcorn doesn’t have strong flavor of its own, so why not toss in something completely different into the mix; cheese and bacon. It sounds like a great snack to me. I don’t always feel like eating something sweet, so this flavor of popcorn would do the trick.
My husband will eat barbecue sauce on just about anything. I’m sure he’d be willing to try barbecue flavored popcorn too. This flavoring is baked on. It’s not as if someone opened a back of popcorn and poured a bottle of fresh sauce all over it. That would be a huge mushy mess! I’d give this one a try. It could be a fun popcorn flavor to put on the table while the guys are doing their ‘male bonding’ thing and watching the game.
5. Caramel with Pecans
Now this is my type of popcorn; caramel AND pecans! I like these two flavors in my ice cream, so why not on my popcorn? This reminds me of the stuff my mom would buy when I was a little kid. It comes in a box, but I can’t remember the name of it. The combination of the pecans and caramel on the popcorn made this treat extra sweet, so I couldn’t eat too much without feeling nauseous.
So far I have yet to find anything strawberry flavored that I didn’t like; pancakes, milk, ice cream, bubble gum and just about everything else I’ve tried so far. The things flavored like strawberry are usually a beautiful hue of pink as well. Such a fun color!
3. Peanut Butter and Jelly
I liked the combination of brown and purple chunks of popcorn and I love peanut butter, so I’m sure it would taste good too. At least with pb and j flavored popcorn you wouldn’t have to worry about too much jelly being added and running down your hand as you tried to eat it. I remember the days of oozing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches when I was little. “Go easy on the jelly” doesn’t mean much to a kid making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
2. Apple Pie
I wonder if this kind of popcorn would be better warm. I know apple pie is always better when it’s warm and has a blob of vanilla ice cream nestled right next to it.
Now this is a flavor of popcorn that I wouldn’t mind seeing in those tins at Christmas. Talk about yummy! As long as it’s good chocolate and not that cheap waxy variety, I’m sure chocolate popcorn would be quite the treat.
I’d love to try as many of the gourmet popcorn flavors as I possibly could. Out of the 7 yummy popcorn flavors to try, I’ve only come across a few of them in person, but didn’t have the chance to try any of them. Have you tasted any of the flavors listed above?
