Recently, Disney came out with a new line of gourmet popcorn, which extended passed their standard fare of caramel, kettle corn, butter toffee and confetti. Upon my recent trip to Disneyland, I stumbled across the huge wall of flavors which included these new flavors:
Siracha Kettle Corn
Although I wanted to try them all, I had to restrain myself and purchased CHURRO and MAPLE BACON. (I was really tempted to get TRUFFLE, but might try that the next time.)
So I purchased the MAPLE BACON popcorn. I opened the package and had to re-confirm that there were no little flakes of bacon inside. No bacon bits. Boo. It has a smoky, sweet and salty flavor. I was expecting it to taste like bacon salt, but no. I am not sure how they created the bacon flavor, but that was a miss. The maple flavor was there, but was overpowered by the odd smoky bacon flavor. I’d pass on this one.
I also purchased the CHURRO popcorn was a bit of a surprise to me. I love churros and was expecting lots of cinnamon. This didn’t have too much cinnamon, but a nice toasted balance of cinnamon and sugar. It was pretty good, not great. I would eat this over the MAPLE BACON for sure.
Then, I had to also get the classic… CARAMEL. Ok, of the three, this was by far my favorite. You can’t go wrong with the classics!!
NOTE #1: The churro popcorn was sold out at the retail stores inside of Disneyland. In addition, they offer a smaller selection and variety inside the park. Your best bet would be to go to Downtown Disney to the World of Disney Store and visit the food section inside the retail store– NOT the Marcelines Confectionery candy store.
NOTE #2: Not all the popcorn are priced the same. The prices vary from $5.99 to $6.99. The TRUFFLE popcorn was priced at $6.99 as with most of the ones with nuts. Most of the others were priced at $5.99, so be sure to turn the product around to see the price tag.
I love the fact that Disney comes out with these new food creations. These were perfect items to bring back as gifts for family and friends!
