Mike and Ike Buttered Popcorn

Mike and Ike Buttered Popcorn

Taste test: This version of Mike and Ike had the usual shapes, with a pale yellow color.

Having had some Jelly Belly beans that were supposed to taste like buttered popcorn — and did — I expected this candy to at least meet that standard. It did not. At times, the flavor seemed to very vaguely resemble butter or popcorn, but it was far from a dead-on match, and if I weren't looking for the buttered popcorn taste, I might not have noticed even those vague resemblances. Disappointing.

Smell test: Kind of smells like a movie theater. But not that strongly of buttered popcorn.

From the package: “Chewy Buttered Popcorn Flavored Candies” ... “Featured flavor!” ... “Naturally & artificially flavored” ... “Mike and Ike® Buttered Popcorn flavored chewy candies were first introduced in 2004. These candies are now back by popular demand! These delicious candies are just as enjoyable as the real thing! Grab a handful and enjoy!” ... “Partially produced with genetic engineering”
