Summer Snacking Made Fun with New Whole Grain Chips from PopCorners (Review and Giveaway)


Disclosure: I was sent a case of PopCorners to sample from the vendor, in order to write up an honest review.  The views shared are mine and mine alone.



I have been a fan of PopCorners since trying and sharing a review last year with you.  So, when I was recently contacted to see if I would like to do another review and giveaway for their new whole grain line of PopCorners, how could I say no? :-)  Not only would my family be able to sample some great tasting healthy snacks, but my readers would also be given a chance to win a case of these three new flavors, too.

Within days of accepting their review offer, a case of 1 oz. PopCorners bags arrived at my doorstep. As soon as I peeled back the lid, I could see the box filled to the brim with these new whole grain snack chips.

Here is more about each of the three new flavors of whole grain PopCorners chips --


SWEET CINNAMON

WHOLE GRAIN POPCORNERS

"Crunchy, Sweet Cinnamon Goodness that will satisfy your craving for the sweetness you enjoyed as a kid. Ok lets face it... the sweetness that we CRAVE as adults. Sweet Cinnamon Whole Grain PopCorners are an Enticing, Alluring blend of Sweet and Spice a Delightfully Sweet Cinnamon treat Popping out of every bag."



TWISTED SALT

WHOLE GRAIN POPCORNERS

"An Unusual Twist on the Usual. Popped to perfection, Sprinkled with salt a Pinch of garlic and blended with a Melody of spices Full of Flavor, Deliciously Crunchy Twisted Salt Whole Grain PopCorners are sure to please the palate of any Savory Snacker. Even the most Seasoned Snacker won't be able to resist the "Twist"." 



MEMPHIS BBQ

SOUTHERN DELIGHT

"Everyone Loves the flavor of Backyard BBQ, one of America's favorite pastimes. Memphis BBQ Whole Grain Popcorners are a Perfectly balanced blend of Sweet and Smokey mixed with Tangy Lip Smacking Robust flavor. Sure to satisfy your summertime BBQ appetite all year long."  

Savannah peered over my shoulder and explained, "Treat," as she called Arabella over to see. :-)  Usually when it comes to food reviews, I like to wait until my husband is home so that we can try the samples as a family, and talk about what we liked and disliked.  But, I have to admit, I was craving a salty treat, and the new Twisted Salt Whole Grain chips were hard to resist.  :-)  I took a bag of these, as well as a bag of the Sweet Cinnamon popped chips for the girls to try, and headed to the living room with the girls, as they were about to watch a movie.

As we sat together on the couch, the girls took turns reaching into the two bags of PopCorners whole grain chips bags.  While I was craving the salt and thoroughly enjoyed the Twisted Salt flavor, I have to say that I was surprised to find myself enjoying the Sweet Cinnamon chips, too.  They were not overpowering with cinnamon, and were sweet enough to make you want to reach for another and another.  I didn't think I would get full off of a 1 oz. bag of PopCorners, but I did!  These all natural chips, are also GMO Free and Gluten Free, which I love, as I can have them on hand to offer family and friends when they come to visit.  A handful of my daughters' friends have gluten allergies, so it is always nice to be able to offer the same snack Savannah is enjoying with them, too.

When my husband came home that night, he grabbed the Memphis BBQ flavor, and couldn't stop saying, "Mmm" as he reached for another and another, until the bag was empty.  The girls didn't care much for this flavor, as they are not huge BBQ fans, but with the few chips my husband shared from his bag with me, I enjoyed them.  Again, this flavor was not too overpowering and didn't leave a funny BBQ flavor in your mouth like other BBQ flavored chips do.



The case of PopCorners sure did come in handy last weekend when we had friends and family over for our Father's Day cookout.  I kept filling the snack bowls with these 1 oz. bags, and telling guests where they could buy more.  Everyone loved the three new flavors, including those who had never heard or tasted PopCorners before.  Thanks to this review opportunity, not only did my family get to try new Popcorners whole grain chip flavors, but I was also able to introduce this healthy all natural snack chip to friends and family, who also became fans and now make a point to pick up bags of PopCorners when they go shopping! :-)

I know my family is not the only one patiently waiting to see what the 4th flavor will be.  My husband is hoping for a kettle chip flavor, while I would love to see a savory chip.  Only time will tell what the fourth whole grain chip will be.  What I do know is that we will be heading to our local super market to pick up a bag to sample. :-)  Will you? 

So, if your family loves snack chips, but hate all the extra fats, preservatives, and other unnecessary ingredients added, why not give PopCorners a try.  This GMO and Gluten-free all natural popped chip snack will surely delight everyone. As an added bonus for those watching their waistlines, each 1 oz. bag of PopCorners, depending on flavor, is only between 110 and 130 calories. Yah!!!!  And, with a variety of flavors available, you are bound to find just the right PopCorners for each member of your family.  With that being said, which of the three new whole grain PopCorners are you looking forward to try?  Scroll down to answer this question as part of my giveaway, where one lucky reader will win a case of 1 oz. bags of the three new flavors to enjoy with their family, thanks to the folks at PopCorners.
