Taste test: I bought this bag not out of any particular craving for butter popcorn at the time, but because of an ongoing project called The George Lucas Diet. Seeing Yoda's face on the front meant that I could keep the diet going for one more day. The back of the bag had an X-wing fighter and two Star Wars trivia questions.
I opened the bag to find that the kernels had butterfly shapes and an off-white color (except where the hulls were) and were generally large. I crunched in to find a soft, somewhat crisp feel, with minimal crunch — and also a very minimal butter taste. Where's the butter?
To quote Jedi Master Yoda, "Do or do not [put a lot of butter in your popcorn]. There is no try."
