Taste test: When we spotted this bag of popcorn at our local supermarket, the first thing that came to mind was Michael Jackson, but upon examining the bag, there didn't seem to be any connection to the late musician. (We do wonder whether his lawyers might be in touch at some point.)
We opened the bag to find kernels of various shapes and sizes with a fairly even level of light orange seasoning. We crunched in to find a mushy feel to go along with a good spicy Buffalo wing sauce flavor. We ate more kernels and found that the texture was consistent — they were all about equally mushy. The heat was impressive and the taste very good, but the lack of any crispness was a major negative on the whole experience, spoiling an otherwise tasty, hot flavor.

Smell test: Strong hot sauce smell. Made the mouth water. Nice.
