Costco French Cancan Popcorn Review

Flavorful salty, cheddar & green onion flavored vegan popcorn from Costco!

Costco French Cancan Cheddar & Green Onion Popcorn

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 te 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.

Taste

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 artifical 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 artifical cheese.

Convenience

This 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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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
