Eureka Premium Popcorn - Sour Cream and Onion product reviews

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!

Live on the wild side a little, with this unique combination of two Kiwi classic flavours - Sour Cream & Onion + popcorn. Comes sealed in a resealable 70g tub.

Ingredients:
Corn, sugar, salt, vegetable oil, sour cream & onion seasoning.

Of all the popcorns in this range, this one was the favourite. For all of us (three friends plus me) it had exactly the right balance of salt and flavour, with just a hint of sweetness from the onions. It is rare that I ask a group to test a product and then find that they all have identical reactions, but this time round it was really true! They liked everything about it.

The only negative was the high price (and even then they conceded that it was fair enough since this was something you would have as a treat rather than as an everyday item) and the size of the package as they would have all liked a bigger helping. However, the package information states clearly that it is a single serve packet, so on balance that is acceptable too - we all got a decent sized handful.

Apart from that, all of us were very happy with the product. We had all been sceptical at first about how well the flavours would work with popcorn. After all, this is a flavour normally used with potato chips, but none of us would ever have thought of combining it with corn. It just did not seem right. So our first taste was cautious in case it tasted funny! Nothing could be further from the truth. The flavour blasted us with a fabulous mixture of slightly sweet and slightly sour, surprising us all by just how good it was.

The crunch aspect was pretty good too. Not as crisp as a potato chip, but not too soft either - just at that perfect space in between the two extremes. We all said we would buy this in preference to an equivalently flavoured potato chip any day. There was just no contest! One person said she thought the flakes would be quite nice with a dip, but the rest of us did not agree with her: we thought they were quite fine just on their own without any additives at all.

If I were hosting a party, this would be my snack of preference. It is tidy on a plate or in a bowl, it does not get stuck between your teeth in the same way that conventional popcorn does, it tastes really good, and if you drop it you don't end up with a floor covered in greasy crumbs. In short, it is the ideal accompaniment to drinks. It does not even need dips or plates of cheese to accompany it. I'm going to buy this again, and so are my three friends.

Popcorn is a "sweet" - everyone knows that. But it didn't used to be, or course. Originally, Popcorn wasn't drenched in icing sugar, or dipped in chocolate, or sprinkled with various sweet flavourings. It was popped in oil or butter, and eaten with salt. So I had to laugh when I told a friend about this flavour and their first reaction was "Ewwww! That's just WRONG!" Even after I explained that it's no different to similarly-flavoured chips - potato, rice or corn - because it's all starchy carbs when you look deep enough, they were dubious and refused to try a taste.

Their loss, all the more for me! Because I have to say, this was my all-time favourite of the four flavours. The softness of the popcorn meant my sensitive teeth didn't act up anywhere near as bad as they would have with chips, and this is certainly a flavour combo I have always enjoyed. Can't tell you why - normally I hate sour cream - but this is a flavour I adore... and this popcorn really nails it perfectly for me. It's got a bit of a sharper flavour profile than any similar chips I have come across, so some people may find it less appealing though.

Portion-wise - I had to knock it down a point because I am sorry to say, the 70g just wasn't enough. I could easily have made this my meals for the whole day. I would love to see this in a 150g bag, but the price feels a little steep for popcorn. Not as bad as you would find at the cinemas, of course - they are insanely pricey - but this is a treat, and an imported one at that, so the price isn't too unreasonable when you think about it.

Overall, this is a bit of a black horse snack - you think it's going to be rubbish, but for me it turned out to be the winner by a mile!
