I remember when the store brands were not that popular and they were honestly not that good. Now, many store brands are made by top level brands so the quality has improved. Even regular store brands have much better quality in their own right. So it makes sense that now a days a store brand popcorn can compete with the top brands.
Walmart Great Value Kettle Corn was excellent and tasted great. The ingredients are the same ingredients used for making kettle corn at home with no additives. The sweet and salty mix was perfect and left no greasy fingers. The packaging was the only thing not perfect about this bag of popcorn.
We enjoyed this bag of popcorn and the only thing that keeps me from eating it everyday is the fact that the closest Walmart always runs out.

This popcorn surprised us by how good it was and we ate it all. We did not expect the popcorn to be so flavorful and light.

We would buy this again. We liked the taste and texture of the popcorn. The packaging colors are really the only thing I would mark off and that just means I wouldn’t use it for a gift basket but still buy it and eat it all myself.
What Are The Ingredients in Great Value Kettle Corn ?
We like that the ingredients are the same that we use when making homemade kettle corn. It contains popcorn, sugar, vegetable oil(canola oil and/or corn oil and/or sunflower oil), and salt. There are no additives or preservatives.
Where Did We Purchase Great Value Kettle Corn ?
We purchased Great Value Kettle Corn from our local Walmart as it is Walmart’s Brand and only available there. We purchased it in the store so we could control the transit to our office to open and test the popcorn so we know we didn’t smash the bag.
How Was The Packaging For Great Value Kettle Corn ?
The bag is a rust color bag with orange and yellow star bursts on the front. It has a kettle of popcorn and a salt shaker on the front.
Honestly, the packaging was not desirable at all. It looks unappealing and inexpensive. For as great as the popcorn tasted we were all dissapointed in the packaging. I would not put this in a gift basket even though the kettle corn was fantasic. Now to eat at home, the packaging doesn’t matter as much as the flavor.
The bag had the typical amount of popcorn in it about 3/4 of the bag. It had broken pieces but I have never opened a bag of popcorn without broken popcorn in it.
What Was Our Experience With Great Value Kettle Corn ?
We easily opened the bag and poured the content into a clear glass bowl. The popcorn was fluffy and white and shiny from the sugar. There was no transfer to our fingers from the salt and sugar.
Everyone that tasted it, like it, and thought it was fantastic. Seconds were taken and eaten.
We did notice the broken pieces at the bottom of the bowl but there were not a lot and all the little pieces also got eaten.
What Was the Taste of Great Value Kettle Corn ?
The sweet and salty mix with the crunch of the popcorn was delicious. No one had popcorn stuck in their teeth after eating it.
Everyone wanted to know if there was another bag of Great Value Kettle Corn to eat.
Who Is The Target Audience For Great Value Kettle Corn ?
The target audience is definitely anyone that likes kettle corn. It can also be for someone that has not yet tasted kettle corn because if they like popcorn, sugar and salt then they will like this product.
