Trader Joe's Popcorn with Herbs and Spices

The popcorn in this bag looks like it fell on the floor—all covered in little flecks of dark matter and hair-like strands of oregano and other herbstuffs. It also tastes like it fell on the floor—that is, if your floor happens to be covered in delicious salt, spices and tasty flavorful plant matter.

It’s your usual popcorn with a slight kick. Similar to other TJ’s popcorn products or products like SmartfoodIt is light and tastes great. It is not lacking in flavor but easy to eat the buttery, oily texture that can be found in many national brands and movie theatre popcorns. It is lightly salted and stays crunchy even after it has been pre-popped.

It is not an a Hot spiciness, it’s a flavorful spiciness. You’ll need hot sauce to make your 5-alarm fire. It tastes of pepper, basil, oregano, dill and maybe a touch of onion. Although there appears to be no oregano, Sonia and my taste buds felt that there was.

Sonia believes it’s delicious. She claims she could eat the whole bag all by herself. Given the bag’s “liteness”, it would be possible to eat the entire bag in one sitting. I believe I could also manage to eat a whole bag by myself. This is a refreshing, spicy take on a traditional salty treat.
