I adore popcorn and Popped! Republic is the best popcorn that I’ve ever had. Every flavor is delicious and tasted crafted, not produced. This popcorn is truly gourmet as evidenced by the rich, full tastes and quality of the product. I really enjoyed all the flavors, but I personally though the standouts are White House White Cheddar, Mount Vernon Maple Glaze and Blitzer’s Blazin’ Buffalo. The White House Cheddar has a perfect amount of cheesy bite. The Mount Vernon Maple Glaze is perfectly sweet and the flavor from the Vermont maple sugar takes you to a happy place of pancakes and the holidays. I love Wolf Blitzer and I’m so happy to report that Blitzer’s Blazin’ Buffalo has a wonderful kick of heat! I love spicy food and this popcorn, truly packs as punch! But I haven’t talked about the America’s Favorite, which all movie theaters need to serve, you’ll never be happy with movie house popcorn again. The K Street Kettle Korn is perfectly balanced with salty and sweet and feasting on the dark chocolate drizzled version is really something else!
Eating Popped! Republic’s popcorn truly inspires the reaction of “EAT ALL THE POPCORN,” in me! To say it’s delicious, creative and well crafted almost doesn’t seem like enough of a compliment!
If anyone is looking for Christmas gift ideas for me you can take the above paragraphs as a wish list!
Kari Liked: All the Popcorn! But if I had to pick ultimate favorites it would be the Blitzer’s Blazin’ Buffalo and Mount Vernon Maple.
Since I was a little child one of my favorite Christmas gifts has always been a tin of popcorn. When Kari introduced me to Kettle Corn a few years back at Dollywood, it blew my mind. My appreciation of popcorn and what can be done to it are ever evolving. That being said, I can’t ever imagine finding a more interesting and innovative approach to popcorn than is found at Popped! Republic.
We had the joy of trying several of their flavors and combinations, all of which were amazing. Even some of the flavor combinations that you wouldn’t think would work, do. America’s Favorite finds a way to be exciting, even though it’s movie theater style popcorn. The Obama Mix contains both Capitol Caramel and Congressional Cheddar in a mashup that makes make my six-year-old self giddy. Moreover, the flavors are rich and deep. The caramel is so creamy and dark. The cheddar tastes like a bite right from a block of cheese. I am forever spoiled for the big cheap tins you see in stores this time of year.
The other biggest standout for me is the Blitzer’s Blazing Buffalo, which was so true to its flavor it’s startling. It’s so hot to eat, but you get more than a heat. You get all the notes you expect with buffalo wings.
I loved everything else we tried too. The K Street Kettle Korn is amazing, especially when drizzled with dark chocolate. The Mount Vernon Maple glaze is subtle and delicious, and a perfect partner for the White House White Cheddar.
I know what I want for Christmas this year! A big tin of Popped! Republic. It definitely makes a great gift, and the have packages starting from $10.
RJ Liked: I liked everything, but my favorites are the Obama Mix, and the Blitzer’s Blazing Buffalo.
