Today we’re talking popcorn! Popcorn is something I regularly enjoy I like to think of it as a “slightly healthy snack” depending on how much butter or chemicals it has. I’ve previously reviewed the Costco Cretors Chicago Mix Popcorn as well as the Costco BOOM CHICKA POP Sea Salt and Kettle Corn Popcorn and recently when I was at Costco I found this low-calorie, gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan French Cancan Popcorn and picked it up to try and review.

This can be found beside all the other chips at Costco and the item number is 1415929.

This is cheddar & green onion flavored popcorn. As soon as I opened the bag of French Cancan Sean, my husband commented on how smelly it is. He’s not one for smelly/fake cheese smells and this is quite aromatic! At first bite, I decided I really liked the popcorn but the more I ate of it, the more I decided I wasn’t much of a fan.

I found it way too salty and also really artificial-tasting. Each piece is covered in fake cheesy, salty goodness but this just didn’t do it for my tastebuds, too much salty artificial flavor. I also didn’t taste any green onion flavor, just the salt and artificial cheese.

Some information about the popcorn


I paid $5.99 Canadian for the bag of popcorn.

This is a massive bag of popcorn and unfortunately it’s not resealable, which isn’t very convenient (unless you can finish off the bag in a few days). When bags aren’t resealable, I just use an elastic band or clothing pin.

This is perfect as a side with your lunch, as an afternoon snack or snack before/after dinner or you can enjoy it while watching a movie! The best before date on the bag of French Cancan from Costco is about from the date I purchased it.

My mom actually really enjoyed this popcorn so I gave her the rest of my bag. I know a lot of people who do enjoy it so for only $5.99 Canadian you may want to pick this up to see what you think of it for yourself! Especially if you’re following a gluten-free or vegan diet.

  1. Best damn popcorn I have ever tasted!! Sampled 3 of 4 flavours available and bought all three!
    I sure hope Costco makes this an everyday item. Two thumbs up!!

  2. More salty than flavour and I barely tasted the onion. The more I tried it the less I liked it. Lots of broken crumbs at the bottom. I won’t be buying it again.

  3. I bought all of my family a bag of french cancun popcorn in lots of different flavours, it was a big hit, especially the jalapeno and the movie butter. Wish Costco would bring it back as we only saw it at Christmas.

  4. Everyone including gf friends and family loved the French cancan cheddar green onion and we’re very disappointed it’s not in Costco now

  5. Maybe I had a dud bag, but upon opening it and having it right away, we felt that the texture seemed stale .. think 1-2 day old popcorn.

  6. I purchased a bag of cheddar and green onion at Costco on May 11, 2021 first time I seen it there and it looked really good and since I watch my sodium intake there was less sodium in this so I thought why not let’s give it a try something I can enjoy with less salt.
    When I got home I open up the bag and I started eating it but boy oh boy did it ever taste salty and with only 65 g of sodium per cup this tasted way more saltier.
    I think I will give it away. How can something that taste so salty have less sodium in it did they miss print the nutrition factor wrong. And also they should be resealable popcorn bags. I will try the other brands when I do find them. Thank you

  7. I purchased this and ended up throwing most of it in the garbage. The flavor was flat, I couldn’t taste any cheese or onion it was so blah. I have tried just about all the flavors the kettle sweet and salty is the best. I see they have a salted caramel one out now that I would like to try.

  8. I totally agree with you, Natalie. At first I thought it was good but the more I ate, the less I liked it. People were raving about it online so I expected it to be amazing.
