The craze for fancy gin or gin flavoured food has been around for a few months now: the market at Christmas was oversaturated with various concoctions – most of which sounded ghastly and were all expensive
The bubble appears to have burst on that market and things are starting to be sold off cheaply well before their best before date. Which I how I ended up trying gin and tonic flavoured popcorn
I did put it back in the shelf once before deciding it was something I’d never try at anywhere near full price and clearly the shops were not planning to continue selling it
However I do wish that I hadn’t bought it as it so gross it ended up going in the bin!
Popcorn seems to be very popular right now, it is probably something to do with the fact it can be marketed as a low calorie snack food. Either way in the last few months there have been a number of crisp-style multipacks of popcorn made available.
The Propercorn stuff is the best (link to previous article) but the Tyrrells Proper Popcorn range deserve a notable mention for having a decent Sweet and Salty flavour.
I should also mention their very strong Mature Cheddar flavour that I could still taste even after half a pack of gum. I think it may have been nice-ish at the time but two hours later I hated it.

It’s Tuesday so should be a film post – however popcorn counts as you eat with a movie.
Propercorn prides itself on being “popcorn done properly”… which seems to mean small portions, funky sounding flavours and high prices.
There happened to be an introductory offer which was good enough to tempt me into buying the ‘Sweet Coconut and Vanilla’ flavour and the ‘ Fiery Worcester Sauce & Sun-Dried Tomato’ flavour.
The sweet flavour was very nice, although it was slightly odd having a mild salt taste under the sweet!
The fiery flavour really was fiery! I use chilli in stir fries and have been known to crave crispy chilli beef from the local Chinese but I did find this popcorn a little too strong to eat without a glass of milk handy!
