PopCorners Chips Review
4 flavors of Pop Corners


It’s not too common to come across an addicting yet guilt-free snack to munch on non-stop. PopCorners Chips are definitely one of those snacks for me. I’m not one to swear by labels but when there are healthier alternatives that taste amazing I give myself an extra pat on the back. Baby steps amiright? 

How are PopCorners Chips different?

Nutrition Stuff

Direct quote from their website for those interested: “Never fried. Verified non-GMO. Kosher. Certified gluten-free. No artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. 120 calories/serving. 0 grams of trans fat. No nuts. No dairy. Vegan.”

Sounds good to me!

Nutrition info

Size/Quantity

I love the variety of the bag sizes which range from individual to big family packs (that I’ve finished on my own but that’s a story for another time). 

You can find the standard 7 oz sizes in most grocery stores but if you want a bigger bang for your buck: Costco has a box of 28 1 oz bags or the huge 20 oz family size. 

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find all flavor varieties in one location. Their website or Amazon is probably your best bet. 

The amount of chips in each bag is satisfying, but these are addicting so 1 oz bags may not be a match for your cravings.

Scent

Nothing out of the ordinary. Each flavor has a savory and light corn chip scent.

Texture

Lots of crunch with a hint of puff. Definitely not grainy like a tortilla chip. The puffed texture gives a fun contrast and makes it slightly denser than chips (in a good way).

Taste 

I love sweet and salty combos so naturally, I gravitated toward the Kettle Corn and Sweet Chili flavors. There’s a flavor for everyone and the seasoning for each one I’ve tried has not been too salty or overwhelming. Can you already tell how much I love these?!

Flavors

I’ll briefly touch on each flavor I’ve tried. Still need to get my hands on Jalapeno Cheddar and Cinema Style Butter. Has anyone tried these? Thoughts?!

Kettle Corn PopCorners Chips: a perfectly harmonious blend of sweet and salty. Often times kettle corn isn’t done right and just isn’t sweet enough for me, but this ratio is perfect!

Kettle Corn Flavor

Sea Salt PopCorners Chips: not too salty and makes a safe, neutral choice. Would be great for dips and creative recipes.

Sea Salt flavor

White Cheddar PopCorners Chips: Reminds me of white cheddar rice cakes and very typical powdered cheese flavor

White cheddar flavor

Spicy Queso PopCorners Chips: Bit of an extra kick compared to white cheddar with a hint of…beans?

Spicy Queso flavor

Sweet Chili PopCorners Chips: Similar to Kettle Corn in terms of retaining a sweet and salty combo but with an added kick of spice

Which flavor is calling out your name?!

I haven’t personally tried these other two products but thought I’d mention them in case you wanna keep your eyes on the lookout! If you’re interested in other healthy chip alternatives check out this review.
