Taste test: This bag of popcorn contained a variety of colors and shapes, as the level of caramel appeared to vary greatly from one kernel to the next, and the shapes included both roundish kernels and butterfly shapes.
The colors varied so much that a small minority of kernels appeared to be almost like plain popcorn, while the other ones had a caramel taste intensity that varied in proportion to their darkness. The concept of caramel kettle corn was a pretty cool one, as the texture was a lot like regular sugar-and-salt kettle corn, while the taste was definitely caramel and salt. The sugar level was generally high in comparison to most kettle corns, while the salt level was fairly low. There was also some buttery flavor in the caramel, which was really nice. Excellent, our snackers were quite impressed.

Smell test: Mild caramel smell, slightly burnt.
From the package: “Lightly covered in roasty-golden caramel just a pinch of sea salt, Angie's Salted Caramel will spoil you for all other caramel kettle corns. (Sorry.) Light and crunchy, never smothered, it's a perfect match for your daily sweet tooth.” ... “We're a husband-wife duo who likes to make popcorn. And not just any popcorn. Popcorn that creates delicious out of nothing but all-natural, everyday ingredients.”
