Taste test: This product sounded a bit confusing from its description, as it promised to be both kettle corn and butter popcorn, which are usually two separate concepts. Did they somehow create butter-flavored kettle corn? I had to find out.
I opened the bag to find large, round kernels that were generally white, with some light browning around most of the round portion, but nothing yellow like butter popcorn. I crunched in to find that it was quite tasty, with a nice butter flavor, plus it was crunchier than you typical butter popcorn. However, it didn't taste or feel like kettle corn, without any sugary sweetness or light sugary crunch. The Ingredients confirmed the lack of sugar (as well as butter, for that matter), so I don't know what made this kettle corn. It was pretty good, though.
Aroma: Great sweet buttery popcorn smell. Nice.
