Thanks, Missy Elliot, for the lyrical inspiration. Seems that second line by no means was gibberish…duh. So apparent now, not a lot again then.

And thanks, Dealer Joe’s Hatch Chile Cheddar Seasoned Popcorn, in addition to my beautiful bride, for the true life inspiration to place that line to make use of. Time to work it, flip it and reverse it.


Effectively, for under $1.99 a bag for this new popcorn sensation sweeping TJ’s cabinets throughout the nation, I figured it would be price to purchase two of ’em on our newest journey. You realize, for science. Could not wait to get again dwelling and provides it a strive, and after we lastly did, I opened the bag atop, in probably the most conventional of the way, took a hand sized scoop, dumped it into my mouth, and began ready for that hatch chile cheddar seasoning to scrub over my existence and take me to a spot I did not know existed.

And waited..and waited..and waited…and waited…okay, I am impatient, this is a contemporary batch o’ hatch…and waited some extra…and somewhat extra…ugh.

The problem with the hatch cheddar is not the flavour itself. Oh no, it is good – a pleasant teeny chew of white cheddar, and a terrific little savory, mildly spicy kick from the hatch chiles which grows somewhat with every chew. it is fantastic taste, topnotch. However it’s the depth itself. It is…refined? Subtler than refined? I do not know. I used to be not too long ago reminded how potently flavored the TJ’s pickle popcorn is, with its unmistakable chew. If that is one finish of the spectrum, these things is on the entire different finish. It is…milder than delicate. Weaker than weak. Wimpier than wimpy. Possibly I am simply an excessive amount of of a hatch chile man, however I would love if the flavour have been stored the identical however intensified by an element of a minimum of 4 or 5. It is good I need to style extra of it.

Enter the second popcorn bag, rap lyrics, and my spouse.

Second bag, opened a number of days after the primary to make certain, she stated to open from the underside. That method if all the flavour mud kinda settled down there, we could possibly be hit with a extra intense taste expertise upfront. Duh. So apparent but genius on the identical time. Who says we at all times needed to open the bag on the prime? What am I, a sheep? No method! My home, my guidelines, as okayed by my spouse! Let’s do it!

Yeah…not a lot totally different that method both. The hatch and cheddar combine was a bit beefier, however not by that a lot. Sigh.

It is too dangerous, actually. All the things else is fairly nice – good sized kernels, completely munchy with ample fluff, not too greasy or messy. The entire expertise simply must be “extra hatchier” within the eloquent phrases of my spouse. I’ve learn some people on the social websites when making an attempt this popcorn added a few of their very own seasoning to liven it up a bit, so it isn’t simply us.

Sigh. The hatch chile cheddar popcorn may have been an all time traditional, however as an alternative is relegated to the “possibly rebuy/possibly not” class. The shortage of realized potential is basically holding it again, and for some cause this kinda hurts however I am unable to give it rather more than like a 2. It is unhappy, however a minimum of my spouse joins me within the grief by giving it a charitable 3.
