Taste test: This popcorn had a light covering of orange seasoning, with some bits of green scattered here and there.
I grabbed a handful and crunched right in to find that an intense jalapeno heat evident starting with the very first kernel. And each kernel was tasty enough that I ate a whole bunch in rapid succession, with the heat increasing as I ate more and more. The heat and jalapeno flavor were more prominent than the cheddar, and the mix of tastes was excellent. There was plenty of hot aftertaste too, and even after trying to cool it down with a beverage, the heat came right back and lingered for a long while. A great hot popcorn from Herr's!
Smell test: Very tangy, but not quite hot.
From the package: “It's air-popped. It's cheese flavored. Then it's lightly spiced with a hint of jalapeño heat. Herr's® Jalapeño Cheese Popcorn. Because some like it not too hot. I hope you enjoy eating it as much as we enjoyed making it. — Ed Herr, President”
