Taste test: With white cheddar popcorn having the most momentum in the cheese-flavored popcorn arena these days, I was surprised to find myself craving the orange-cheese popcorn while on a recent trip to Washington, D.C.
I found this bag of Herr's Cheese Popcorn, and was surprised that we hadn't reviewed it yet. I remember as a kid loving the orange-cheese popcorn, although it was from a different brand. I eagerly bought the bag, hoping to re-kindle the memories I had as a youngster devouring the bag of popped corn.
No such luck here. The popcorn itself was OK fresh and crunchy but the cheese powder on the popcorn was not to my liking. It was almost too strong a taste, and it certainly didn't remind me of the cheese popcorn I ate as a kid. I'll stick with the white cheddar popcorn for the time-being.
Smell test: Smells like popcorn, nothing too cheesy to the smell.
From the package: “Herr's Popcorn! So great tasting! So fluffy! It's the way they're made. Our kernels are hot-air popped and then flavored with pure vegetable oils, and to be sure that you get only fresh, great tasting popcorn, we sift out any unpopped kernels. Also, we don't add any preservatives because they're not needed. We make our popcorn with the same pride that we've been putting into our products for half a century. So no matter which great tasting Herr's Popcorn you choose Original, Cheese, Light, Hot Cheese, White Cheddar, or Caramel I know you'll enjoy it. In fact, you have my guarantee Jim Herr.”
