A few days ago, I discovered Pop! Gourmet Popcorn at Starbucks. I always make my own coffee, but an event with a friend required a late morning run to the chain, beloved by the world. While in line, a perfectly pink bag with the words Almond Roca caught my eye. I grabbed two bags… the Almond Roca and the White Cheddar Jalapeño Popcorn.
To say the least, I’m impressed. The dessert popcorn is coated in the perfect layer of butter toffee. The crunch, not too hard, just right. There has been many times in the past where I have bought candied popcorn, the inedible hardness of the snack has caused me to be concerned that I was going to lose or break my teeth… but not with Pop!
The second flavor, White Cheddar Jalapeño, is definitely my favorite. The velvety, creamy nature to the popcorn is superb. One could taste the quality in every bite. Scattered through the wonderful popped snack you’ll find little surprises of jalapeño chips. The flavor has a kick. Don’t eat if you don’t like spice, try the Almond Roca Popcorn instead.
Last night I purchased the original Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce Popcorn. I have a feeling it is going to be my favorite. I have never before tasted such a delightful, high quality popcorn in my life… nothing compares. If you are a fan of popped corn, you haven’t truly tried the best until you’ve tried Pop!
