The Popcorn Shed

Popcorn is such a timeless and well-rounded snack - a cinema classic, but also a great lunchbox addition or afternoon snack if you're "being good" and don't want to reach for the chocolate or crisps. I love most food, and when The Popcorn Shed got in touch to ask if I would show off their gourmet (ooooh) popcorn, there was no way that opportunity was getting turned down. They're a brand I've seen around but never tried before, so I thought I'd share my thoughts on their posh popcorn and whether it's better than Butterkist.

You can purchase Popcorn Shed popcorn in little boxes that look like sheds (cute) or in big glass jars with a gift tag that you can just keep on refilling; a shed will set you back £3.50 for 80g which is a little bit pricey, but hey it's gourmet. And it is delicious. It comes in seven different flavours: Pop 'n' Choc, Say Cheese, Butterly Nuts, Salted Caramel (my fave), Sweet Cheesus, Berry-licious and Pecan Pie - so there's pretty much something for everyone. All of the Popcorn Shed flavours are gluten free aaaand suitable for veggies.

As I mentioned, my favourite flavour is Salted Caramel - it's got chocolate on it, but not too much, and it's not sickly at all. I found with The Popcorn Shed I didn't get those hard bits of un-popped corn at the bottom which are irritating at best and a choking hazard at worst, so that's a bonus. I didn't find myself enjoying the two cheese varieties, especially Sweet Cheesus which is a brilliant concept (cheese and caramel) just not for me at all - if you're someone who's into mixing sweet and savoury in such an outrageous way, though, you'll most likely love it.

So, The Popcorn Shed looks cute and tastes boss - it's a bit more expensive than your average popcorn but for birthday trips to the cinema or an anniversary night in with your favourite film on, I'd highly recommend. You can also get wee snack packs to *really* jazz up your picnics and packed lunches. Click here to find out more about The Popcorn Shed (and thanks for sending me loads of popcorn, guys).
