Costco POPCORNERS Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn

I tried POPCORNERS from Costco for the first time this past weekend and I’m reviewing them today!


Taste

If you like salty & sweet, crunchy snacks. You’ll love these. I warn you, they are highly addictive! In terms of taste, they’re like a hybrid between popcorn and a corn chip. You can definitely distinctively taste the corn flavor and they’re quite crunchy and crisp. Picture taking a bunch of popcorn and compressing it down into a thick chip. There’s both salty and sweet flavors in this snack, in my opinion there’s slightly more sweet than salty due to the sugar added as well as the sweetness contributed by the natural corn flavor. If you’ve had kettle corn before and didn’t enjoy it, I’ll be honest, you probably won’t enjoy this snack.

Costco POPCORNERS Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn

Cost

This is a pretty large bag! The 567 gram bag cost $5.89 Canadian not on sale. That’s really reasonable for such a large bag of a delicious snack item. Some small bags of regular chips cost that much at a grocery store so I feel like the Costco POPCORNERS price is very reasonable.

Convenience

The Costco POPCORNERS come in a re-sealable bag with a best before date about three months from the date I purchased them. They make a convenient snack for a summer BBQ or a movie night at home.

Costco POPCORNERS Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn Nutrition

Nutrition

These aren’t the healthiest snack choice but definitely are better for you than a ton of other snack options! They're NON GMO and "never fried". About 30 chips is 210 calories, seven grams of fat, 200mg of sodium, five grams of sugar and three grams of protein. 30 chips is a lot and I was shocked at the low amount of sugar. Seven grams of fat is also far less fat than a lot of other crackers or chips. The ingredients list is also super short without any questionable added ingredients.

I’m really enjoying my bag of Costco POPCORNERS and wouldn’t hesitate to purchase them again for a work potluck or barbecue.
