The calling of fast food may be “super size” … but there’s a trend in food to miniaturize, as well. The Little Kernel line of mini popcorn is one such example. I received three flavors to test out — butter, truffle sea salt and white cheddar — and here’s what I thought about them.
NOTE: I received a free sample of this product for review, however I am under no obligation to write about it positively or otherwise.
What I Liked about Little Kernel Mini Popcorn
Overall, I found the texture of the smaller popcorn to be quite pleasant. Texture is a part of your overall experience of taste, and the size of these mini popcorns added an interesting solidity to my experience. Traditionally sized popcorn often is more fluffy, whereas this was more kernel-y.
As for the individual flavors, my favorite was truffle sea salt. It had an intriguing earthy flavor that I have never had with popcorn before.
What I Didn’t Like About Little Kernel Mini Popcorn
The flavors were very subtle. The butter mini popcorn tasted like plain popcorn. I couldn’t really perceive much cheesy-ness in the white cheddar flavor. And although the truffle sea salt has that nice earthy quality, it was still very lite. I would have appreciated a more bold flavor.
Overall Comments on Little Kernel Mini Popcorn
I found this product pleasant enough to eat, but lacking in boldness of flavor. I think it would be fun to serve at a party, just for the novelty of it all.
Who Is Little Kernel Mini Popcorn Suitable for?
People who like popcorn in general might or might not like this product. I enjoyed it, but my husband, who also gave it a taste, did not like the texture. I recommend giving it a try to see for yourself.
