Taste test: These triangular chips had a light yellow color and the same wiggly surfaces as the the other PopCorners varieties.
I crunched in and ate the first chip to find a soft crunch and a gradual transition in taste from lightly sweetened corn on the first bite to a taste more like the original sea salt flavor of PopCorners by the time I was done with it. This same continuum of flavors was repeated with each subsequent chip. The initial taste didn't strictly remind me of eating kettle corn, as that's a special combination of subtle sweetness and saltiness, combined with a fresh-from-the-kettle texture, but it was remotely like it, if you stop to think about it. So these were pretty good, a nice extension of the PopCorners line into a sweet version.
Smell test: Not much, just a slight tortilla chips smell. Not like kettle corn.
From the package: “All natural” ... “Gluten free” ... “The new shape of popcorn™” ... “PopCorners are the delicious new snack with the snap of a chip and the same wholesome goodness as popcorn. They're air popped with real corn and all natural ingredients so you can snack smart. Enjoy them alone or with your favorite dips.”
