FunkyChunky: Gourmet Popcorn That Will Have Your Reaching For Seconds (Review)

FunkyChunky recently sent me a sampling of their gourmet popcorn to try out. I received 1 bag of each of these flavors, packed in 2 oz. bags.

These sample packs came in small 2 oz. bags, which made for great on the go snacking, as well as snacking in moderation :-) Having never sampled this brand before, I was in for a sweet treat! :-) Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzels
Out of the 6 gourmet snack flavors sent, I have to say my favorite was the Chip-Zel-Pop.  I have always been a fan of chocolate covered potato chips. There is something about a salty, yet sweet treat that gets your taste buds going.  And, like potato chips, you can't eat just one of these chocolaty popcorn treats.  I hesitated in sharing a bite with my husband, but wanted him to see how great this flavor tasted.  He agreed in that the salty sweet contrast really made this gourmet snack.  When he was done with his piece, he went to reach in the bag, only to be disappointed to find it was empty.  I told him I knew what I wanted for my birthday, which is coming up in a few weeks -- a canister of Chip-Zel-Pop from FunkyChunky all for myself. :-)  As for the other flavors, my daughter, Savannah was a fan of the Peanut Butter flavor, even though we can't get her to eat anything else with peanut butter in it.  Surprising, the candy cane popcorn with the macadamia nuts was also very tasting.  I would never have thought to paired these flavors, nor would have tried candy cane pieces and popcorn otherwise, but just looking at this festive snack made me what to see how good it tasted.  If you are a fan of candy canes, you will love this treat.  Not only does it leave your breath smelling fresh with peppermint, but it really makes your mouth water, allowing for the other flavors of the caramel, chocolate and nuts to really stand out.  If I wasn't a huge potato chip fan, this would be my favorite of the FunkyChunky flavors for sure.

And, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, FunkyChunky also released their special edition signature popcorn.  This popcorn was the signature flavor of Ronnie Feuer, FunkyChunky's founder and creator, who also fought breast cancer, but passed away a short time ago.  "For every purchase of Ronni's Popcorn, 10% of sales will go to the Hope Chest for Breast Cancer Foundation, with 100% of every dollar raised going directly to women facing financial hardships while undergoing breast cancer treatment."  Not only is this signature gourmet popcorn delicious, but knowing that you are helping women battling breast cancer with your purchase, makes this popcorn so much sweeter. :-)  FunkyChunky popcorn doesn't contain artificial flavors or colors, and each piece of popcorn is packed with flavor.  With Ronni's popcorn, you can taste the buttery caramel popcorn, with is mixed with whole glazed almonds, pecans and cashews.  And, if that wasn't enough, three types of chocolate is used to coat the popcorn and nuts - dark, milk and pink.  So, each time you reach in to grab a piece, you can't help but pull out a clump of chocolate/caramel dipped popcorn and nuts. Mmm!!! Just thinking about this flavor makes my mouth water.  

So, if you are a fan of popcorn or love to try new sweet treats, then you definitely have to give FunkyChunky a try.  I dare you to just have one piece! :-)  And, with the holidays right around the corner, why not pick up a few canisters or gift boxes to share with family and friends? Don't forget to order sampling for yourself to have on hand to share with guests who visit, as well as treat yourself after a long day.  Once you try FunkyChunky popcorn, you will be hooked.  I am counting down the days until my birthday, when I will be able to more gourmet snacks from FunkyChunky. :-)
