I think everyone is a fan of a good old fashioned movie night. Whether it’s a trip to the cinema or snuggling up in your duvet in your fave pyjamas on a cold winter evening, movie nights are an essential for me. So, of course, when Popcorn Shed got in touch to talk about their gourmet popcorn, I was sold immediately!
What Is Popcorn Shed?
I had not heard of Popcorn Shed before, and was pleasantly surprised when my goodies arrived. The packaging really is stand-out; it’s bright and colourful, it reflects the brand personality so well and the larger packets are of course, shaped like a shed! Personally, I love when brands aren’t afraid to do something different and stand out from the crowd, so before I’d even tasted the product, I was a little bit in love with Popcorn Shed.
Pop ‘N’ Choc
How can you go wrong with chocolate covered popcorn? Pop ‘N’ Choc uses Belgian chocolate and has just the right balance of sweet and bitter to compliment the popcorn. I found this flavour to be extremely moreish which means it’s easy to get through the whole lot in one sitting so I’ll definitely be picking more up in the future.
Another Popcorn Shed flavour that I was very curious about. Caramel and cheese. I wasn’t too sure what to make of Sweet Cheesus initially as it smells very cheesy, but actually the taste is quite subtle. You get the caramel sweetness first, followed by a mild cheese aftertaste. It’s not what you would expect and I can imagine it gets a bit of getting used to!
Next up is Butterly Nuts – mixing the classic peanut butter spread with popcorn. This tastes like it should have been around for years. It feels like a classic flavour combination and works so well together. It’s quite a strong peanut flavour but again, it’s doesn’t knock your socks off. Another very moreish flavour that won’t last long in this house!
We all know that dark chocolate and raspberry is a winning flavour combination, but Popcorn Shed have dared to take it that one step further. Berry-licious has a subtle raspberry tang to it, with the dark chocolate definitely being the overriding flavour. It’s not too bitter or too tart, with just the right balance of both flavours. In my Mum’s words, this is an ingenious flavour combination. Definitely a hit!
Another classic flavour combination, and probably the most normal we’ve tasted is Salted Caramel. The caramel is really sweet, but without being sickly or sticky to touch. The salt adds a good balance, and again, isn’t overpowering. The flavours are balanced so well as we’ve seen in most of the other products too. A firm favourite for the well-known and loved classic.
Overall, I think it’s clear that Popcorn Shed really do deliver some stunning (if a little strange) flavours. One thing I will say is that all of the flavours are so well balanced with the popcorn – not one flavour makes you question whether it belong on popcorn or not, even the cheese! I adore the packaging, the brand message, the flavours… Popcorn Shed are my newest addition to movie night for sure.
