Ok, who enjoys eating popcorn and chomping on the little pieces at the bottom of the bowl or bag? They aren’t the hard kernels that never popped. Instead they are the half popped pieces of popcorn kernels that aren’t as fluffy as the fully popped kernels but have the nice CRUNCH and munch to satisfy that need.
Welp I just described this new healthy snack that has burst on the market. It’s called HALFPOPS and they offer half-popped popcorn that are fully delicious. I was a little skeptical when I was contacted but decided to try it because well – it IS a form of popcorn so curiosity got the best of me.
When my box arrived I RUSHED to pull it open because I wanted to see what it looked like. I received 4 flavors in my box:
I immediately went for the Chipotle Barbeque flavor because it is totally VEGAN. I’m not vegan but I wanted to see what a vegan wholesome snack whose name implies spicy tasted like. It did not disappoint.
Before I get into how delicious these HALFPOPS are let me share a little more information about them. These HALFPOPS are a lot of good and do not have a lot of bad stuff at all. GMO corn is widespread in our food supply but HALFPOPS only uses non-GMO kernels. There kernels are also gluten-free, nut-free, corn syrup free, trans fat free, artificial flavors free, hydrogenated oils free, preservative free and negativity FREE…OH YEAH! That’s my kind of snack.
Alright, so here’s how it went down when I tried the Chipotle Barbeque. It was a late night, after work and I brought the bag upstairs to eat. Each bag has 2 servings and the bag was pretty heavy.
As you can see, they aren’t quite unpopped kernels but they are clearly not fully popped popcorn but you can definitely see the seasoning. I was hyped about digging in. I threw these bad boys in my mouth and started eating and I was in heaven. The flavor was delicious and the crunch was perfect. You don’t need potato or corn chips eating these. This satisfies all of those cravings.
I immediately realized after eating a few more handfuls that I was starting to feel full, so I closed up the bag and put the remainder aside for another day. I woke up the next day and would you believe my stomach still felt full. I went to work out at the gym and had the energy to get through all of the moves.
I was thinking about the remaining Chipotle Barbeque half-popped kernels all the next day throughout the day and readily polished off the rest of the bag the next night. It was delicious!
