Around mid-January, I received an email with a header: We want to send you
r our Popcorn. I was so tempted to say ‘What are you waiting for?’. However, I am not used to the idea of a product review and have never really done it before.
Long story short, a box of popcorn with six different flavours arrived at my office and the fun started!
Obviously the first one to go was the Original Planet Popcorn as you want to know how ‘the original’ is supposed to taste. The popcorns were a bit bigger than your usual cinema popcorn and they were very round (like a planet !). The Corn Soup popcorns had a well-balanced flavours. However, I find the name ‘corn soup popcorn’ has a bit more corn than it’s supposed to…maybe some fancy name like ‘salt and sugar popcorn’ suits better 🙂
The next two flavours were more on the spicy side. Basil Chicken and Kimchi. It was actually pretty spicy when compared to your normal snacks. My partner is a huge fan of spicy food and quite a hater of snacks. However, she enjoyed the Kimchi popcorn so much that she actually could not wait Planet Popcorn to officially open in Australia!
Then we have the ‘dessert’ type popcorn: Double Chocolate – Premium limited edition put it in the fridge to get the best taste – and Coffee.
These two were more in the sweet side of the spectrum. Double chocolate is supposedly the premium limited edition variant. However, I am not really a big fan of chocolate, so I’m not sure whether I should talk about Double Chocolate.
My Personal Favourite: Corn Soup! I think the Corn Soup flavour from Planet Popcorn has the right combination of sweet and salt.
