Review: Limited Edition Snickerdoodle Drizzle PopCorners Minis & What “Healthy” Cereal Do You Eat?
JFG Nation, crowdsourcing a question: I need a new “healthy” cereal to eat. I know most cereals, even “healthy” cereals are probably NOT that healthy, but after a steady stream of Mini Wheats and Grape Nuts over the years, I need something new. What do you like, if you ever buy “healthy” cereals?
Suggest anything, old or new, in the comments below. All Bran? Cascadian Farms? Some sort of Kashi cereal? Simple big ass Wheats? I’m open to all ideas. Tell me, please.
Today’s junk food: Limited Edition Snickerdoodle Drizzle PopCorners Minis!!
Limited Edition Snickerdoodle Drizzle PopCorners Minis were bought the same time I got the Double-Up Fudge version. When it comes to Chocolate vs. Cinnamon, I have to admit – I tend to be more of a Cinnamon guy. I know I might be speaking blasphemy right now.
When i opened the bag of Limited Edition Snickerdoodle Drizzle PopCorners Minis, I could instantly smell cinnamon and butter. It was the best. It was like smelling fresh Snickerdoodle cookies, but I also smelled popcorn – the mixture of sweet and corn actually reminded me a lot of smelling a box of sweet cereal. Not quite Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but something along those lines.
I popped a few of these small Limited Edition Snickerdoodle Drizzle PopCorners Minis into my mouth, crunched, and OMG these were good. Like, really good. I immediately ranked these above the Double-Up Fudge.
First, the generally sweet corn flavor of the PopCorner chip reminded me a LOT of Kellogg’s Corn Pops. Sweet, bright, and texture-wise light and crunchy. REALLY good. Add on top of that a generous dose of cinnamon, and then a nice sweet icing for that pop of sugar, and these tasted EXACTLY like I’d expect them too – like you merged popcorn with a Snickerdoodle cookies and drizzled frosting all over it. While I tend to like real Snickerdoodle cookies to be as simple as possible – clean dough, cinnamon, sugar, that’s it – the more exaggerated flavor profile worked here. The extra drizzle helped push the flavor profile out of just “Sweet Popcorn” range.
BUY. BUY BUY. NOW.
