I remember back in the day when there was not any packaged popped popcorn for sale in the grocery store in my town. Now there are so many choices, and we will be reviewing them all, one at a time.
Boom Chick Pop Kettle Corn is a delicious mix of sweet and salty and all the ingredients are natural which is the biggest bonus and we would buy it again. It is light, fluffy and very tasty with just the right amount of sugar and salt. The packaging is easy to read and very pleasing to the eyes.
I have been eating kettle corn for over 40 years so I have a lot of kettle corn experiences to share with you and I am not afraid to tell you my honest opinion.

How Was the Packaging for Boom Chicka Pop?
The bag is a soft pastel of purple with pink and purple fonts and it stands out well. I am usually not a fan of pink or purple and these were very eye catching and pleasant.
The bag was around 90% full of popcorn which I appreciate the company being mindful of waste. We used kitchen scissors to cut the bag open at the top so we can reseal it with our sealer to keep it fresh longer.
What Was Our Experience With Boom Chicka Pop?
We opened the bag and poured it into a bowl. We were pleasantly surprised that the kernels were nice and fluffy, We did notice many little pieces at the bottom of the bag that were probably broken up in transit to the grocery store for stocking.
They are a white, medium sized butterfly shaped popcorn. The popcorn had a shiny coat of sugar on the popcorn that got on our fingers but it was not sticky.

The taste of sweet and salty had me reaching for another handful. The popcorn has a nice crunch and was very easy to chew. The soft a fluffy popcorn melted in my mouth and left a nice sweet flavor on my lips.
