Taste test: This bag was filled just about halfway with large round kernels that were about an even mix between fluorescent orange cheddar popcorn and light brown caramel corn. Everything we saw was individual kernels, with nothing stuck together. The cheddar ones on their own had a nice crispness and very soft feel, with lots of tasty cheddar cheese spread evenly over the surfaces and evenly from one piece to the next. The caramel corn had a generous coating of caramel over the whole surfaces, fairly evenly applied, with crisp feel when bitten into the shell and a very soft feel inside, and really nice sweet caramel taste.
What could be better than either of those two kinds of popcorn? Well, eating them together was even better, with a great balance of cheesy and sweet. The combination was great! We shared the bag with a large group of snackers, and people loved the taste, as they grabbed handfuls until the bag was empty.
Some kinds of Chicago popcorn include a third variety, butter popcorn, but this one worked just great with only the two kinds.

Smell test: Kind of weird, doesn't really smell like caramel or cheddar, but I guess that's what a mix those two tastes like.
From the package: “Old Fashioned Caramel Popcorn mixed up with Cheddar Cheese Popcorn to create the perfect mix of salty and sweet” ... “Now you don't have to go to Chicago to get the tasty treat of popcorn the Chicago way”
