Taste test: These semi-popped corn kernels are, in the opinion of this veteran snack food taster, bad.
They taste burnt, and they're hard and crunchy, which popcorn just should not be. But here's the weird thing: When they were put in the office chip bowl for all to try, a few people agreed that Pop Nots are just a bad idea, but even more people thought they were great. It turns out that lots of people do think that the semi-popped kernels are the best part of any bowl of popcorn. I can't imagine why, but that's what the majority seems to be saying. The white cheddar flavor is quite cheddary — nearly cheddary enough to make up for the fact that it's coating crunchy, sort of burnt popcorn.

Smell test: Smells like burnt popcorn.
From the package: “Who doesn't dig through the popcorn just to get down to those crunchy, little, half-popped pieces near the bottom of the bowl? You know, the ones that have so much more “real corn” flavor than regular popcorn. We like them so much, we figured out a way to half-pop every piece and soften up the kernel so you can enjoy the great corn flavor you love in every bite of Popnots! How do we do it? Simple, first we kerpop® the rascals® and then we poppernot® the diggers® until they're just right. Enjoy!”
