“Let the poppin’ begin with Popcorn Shed”
Popcorn. A treat well associated with a cinema trip or a movie night with friends. Not anymore. Popping up all over Instagram, popcorn is becoming the fast go-to snack. Popcorn Shed has created their own versions of the ever so popular snack. Creating their own special version in different flavours to make the taste buds come alive.
Who are they?
Taken from their website: “We are rewriting the rules of snacks, in the UK and beyond!
Say goodbye to boring, tasteless popcorns. Our gourmet popcorns taste better than the competition, is beautifully branded and our pack formats are both unique and eye-catching.
Popcorn Shed is the UK’s first super-premium gourmet popcorn brand. We incorporate TEXTURE into our product through chunks of nuts, chocolate and dried fruit, in order to maximise the taste of our popcorns and enhance ‘mouth feel’. Our popcorn is the first UK brand to be packaged in beautiful’shed’ cartons, each with its own unique personality and theme. Our shed cartons make fantastic use of colour and have great shelf presence.”
The first thing that caught my eye of popcorn shed was how their products are packaged. Completely different from anything that’s out on the market. The bold colours to showcase each different flavour, be it in a bag or in it’s shed version of packaging. I really love the shed packaging as it’s super quirky and so different. It links in so well with their brand name. They gifted 6 varieties of flavours which also came in the form of the shed packaging as well as the bags.
Another thing I noticed when opening and tasting the popcorn was that each piece was a fairly uniform ’round’ shape and there were hardly any bits of hull to get stuck in your teeth. Normally in a bag, each piece is an irregular shape. The reasoning behind this is Popcorn Shed popcorn is a different shape to ‘normal’ because it is made with Mushroom Popcorn Kernels. Whereas, the popcorn you get in the cinema is normally made with Butterfly Popcorn Kernels.
All their products are made using all natural, high-quality ingredients, carefully sourced, lovingly crafted and free of any unhealthy preservatives or additives. All of their popcorn is suitable for vegetarians and completely gluten-free.
After trying most of the flavours (as I wasn’t too keen on the idea of a berry flavour). My ultimate favourite flavour had to be the “Choc ‘n’ Pop” A double whammy of chocolate with a caramel base. Perfect for a chocoholic like myself. It was just an intense chocolate taste which really was something else. I’ve tried chocolate flavoured popcorn before but nothing had tasted like these ones. Running very close to the chocolate flavoured was the Pecan Pie flavoured. Nutty, buttery, smooth caramel with golden roasted pecans giving you a textural sensation and nutty crunch.
I can’t recommend Popcorn Shed enough. If you’re a lover of popcorn like myself or you know someone who loves popcorn then this would be the perfect gift for them.
