Taste test: This is really good white cheddar popcorn with a teriffic and addictive cheddar taste. The taste is very similar to Smartfood, which sets the standard for its category in terms of taste. Cape Cod has done Smartfood one better by making a popcorn that leaves barely any cheese powder residue on your fingers, which is a definite plus (unless you actually enjoy sucking the cheese off your fingers once you've emptied the bag).
Aroma: Nice cheddar cheese aroma, with the cheddar aroma overpowering the popcorn aroma.
Manufacturer: Cape Cod Potato Chip Co.

From the package: "Cape Cod Popcorn is made from the highest quality, best tasting popping corn on the planet. We diligently research and test our popping corn from a variety of farms, just like we do for our potatoes, to ensure we receive the best kernels year round. We use only white popping corn which has a smaller hull (the hard triangular part at the end of the kernel), so that we are guaranteed maximum kernel explosion in the hopper. Popcorn has long been a part of New England history, and has been used for everythign from jewelry to breakfast cereal. It was even part of the first Thanksgiving in Plymouth (less than 40 miles from our factory on Cape Cod), when the brother of a the Wampanoag chief offered popcorn in a deerskin bag to the Pilgrims as a token of friendship. Continuing in that tradition, we hot-air pop our corn in a small popper to allow close supervision throughout the cooking process. Air popping creates a very tender, light popcorn with a pronounced corn flavor, the perfect setting for our premium white cheddar. Our cheddar was selected after a year long search of over 200 cheeses. This special topping is 100% cheddar containing only milk, salt, cheese culture and enzymes. There are absolutely no artificial colors, preservatives or fillers. Once the white cheddar cheese is applied the popcorn is complete, but before it's packaged we test a sample from every batch."
