Taste test: This bagged kettle corn attempts to duplicate the taste of the freshly popped kettle corn that you would get at the county fair.
It does that very well, coating the crunchy and fresh popcorn with a very tasty mixture of salt and sugar. It's very addictive. Usually I can't eat that much popcorn all at once, but with this stuff I couldn't help grabbing handful after handful until the bag (which says it contains 3.5 servings) was almost empty. It's not quite the same experience as fresh hot kettle corn, but it's definitely close.

Smell test: Popcorn smell, just slightly sweet.
From the package: “Now get the taste of summertime anytime!” ... “Guaranteed Fresh!” ... “Unique Sweet & Salty Flavor!” ... “Gluten Free! Cholesterol Free! Naturally Free of Trnas Fatty Acids!” ... “The Kettle Kork Story! Kettle Korn was first introduced in the early 1700's. German immigrant pioneers would end a day rendering lard from hogs by using the lard to pop corn in their large cast iron kettles. They would also add to the corn whatever confections they had on hand, such as molasses, honey and cane. The corn was then cooked over a wood fire and scooped out by hand. ... We still use large kettles to pop in, however the 'popper' has been streamlined for commercial use. We stir popping corn in large stainless steel kettles and every batch is hand crafted.”
