Franklin's Gourmet Popcorn
I'm not a massive fan of popcorn but I'm not one to turn down the chance to try something new. It's not that I don't like it, I just rarely have it unless I'm watching a movie. Plus I've never really made popcorn right at home in a microwave and rarely attempted the stove top version.
Franklin's Gourmet Popcorn seemed like a pretty interesting concert. It's all organic, it came with oil and seasoning and the portions seemed really well. It looked perfect for 2 people to enjoy without having to make another batch.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the massive box ( I received a case of 24) was how the seasoning and oil looked. It didn't look very appealing. I was immediately turned off by it and vowed to just give it a try but not commit to using it every time. When I put all the ingredients on my pot the kernels started to pop right away and within minutes it was all done and overflowing. The amount of popcorn that was made was pretty insane! It was enough for four people to enjoy. When I dumped it onto several bowls I noticed that not very many kernels were left unpopped. An issue I always had when using the microwave kind!
I was a bit leery about what the taste would be like because of the consistency and look of the oil and seasoning but was pleasantly surprised that it didn't really have a taste. I actually added salt because it was pretty bland. I liked this because it means that I can avoid using those weird extras and I'm not losing out of any flavor that I might've accidentally fallen for!
Another thing I liked it that my apt didn't smell like popcorn. I'm becoming really sensitive to strong, lingering odors and the fact that these popped and rose quickly meant there was no risk of accidentally burning any.
