Taste test: This popcorn had an off-white color generally, with lots of super-tiny bits of seasoning scattered very thinly across the surfaces. We were expecting a buttered popcorn, or at least one flavored to taste like it, based on the "Theater Style" name, as this is generally the convention in the popcorn industry.
We crunched in to find a nice taste, but it was only very, very subtly butter-like. Instead, it was lightly seasoned, apparently with things other than butter, and it still tasted quite good. However, if you were to buy this hoping for it to taste like when you went to the multiplex and asked for lots and lots of butter from the butter-on-tap machine, it could be very far from what you hoped to get.
Smell test: Fairly strong smell, not like regular popcorn or butter, could be the chia seeds.
