Normal "butterfly" popcorn pops out into a wildly-shaped mess, with bits of husk that get stuck between your teeth. Not Eureka Premium Popcorn! We use a special variety called "mushroom" popcorn that forms large, roughly spherical balls of tastiness!
Popped and sprinkled with sea salt, this is the classic flavour. Comes sealed in a resealable 70g tub.
Corn, sugar, salt, vegetable oil
I've been a fan of popcorn for as long as I can remember, but for most of that time, it has only had 1 flavour - salty butter. I refuse to pay $18.00 for a tub at the cinemas, so have always made my own. Popped in hot butter, sprinkled with salt. It's really only been in the last 12 months or so that I have encountered these new "fancy" flavours, so something as simple and classic as this flavour was actually quite interesting for me.
It's simple, it's basic, yet it was a wonderful new flavour for me. It wasn't oily, it wasn't too salty, it had a slight sweetness... and one certainly couldn't fault the portion size - unlike every bag of crisps in existence, these tubs are packed FULL, right to the foil seal... as the linked photo shows. Literally, not even room for one single kernel more to fit in.
I was planning all sorts of wonderful food experiments for this... but alas, I fell victim to the flavour, and a desire to "quality check" just one more pop to see if the flavour was as uniform as the last one. Naturally, watching a classic TV show in the background, I fell into autopilot mode, and next thing I know I was groping around the bottom of an empty tub seeking just one last morsel. Instead I find something genuinely surprising - a bag of silica gel to absorb any moisture in the tub, and a "refreshment chip" - a plastic-like square that a bit of research informs me is made from natural plant extracts and reduces odours and acts a non-invasive preservative by preventing mould growth. Brilliant!
Overall, this is a really simple but tasty popcorn. Not 100% sold on the price tag though, but then I am also loathe to pay "going rates" for something I could, in theory, make for myself... even if my best efforts don't taste quite as good as these do! Think I may have to buy a few (dozen) more tubs to see if I can work out the secret recipe... #munch
