Taste test: This popcorn came in very small pieces, maybe a tad bigger than the ones in Pipcorn, but still quite small as popcorn goes. They still looked like popcorn, just smaller, and the pink salt didn't add any pinkness to the appearance.
We crunched in to find a good crisp feel and a very nice taste, just lightly salted, but with lots of good corn taste. The small pieces did make the kernels a bit awkward to hold, and if you grab a handful, you get quite a lot of kernels.

Smell test: Smells like lightly burnt popcorn.
From the package: “Popcorn is popcorn, right? That assumption also assumes corn is corn, and that couldn't be further from the truth. Take the heirloom variety corn used in this heirloom popcorn with avocado oil and pink salt. It's been passed down for generations through Amish and Mennonite farmers in the Eastern U.S., and planted by a small number of American farmers. It's more challenging to grow than mainstream corn varieties, with significantly smaller crops of significantly smaller ears of corn. Even the kernels themselves are smaller, which, intriguingly, makes them perfect for popping!”
