Popcorn Shed Review*

We're massive fans of a movie night in our home. Whether it's a trip the cinema or an evening on the sofa, we're film fanatics and tend to get through several a week, so of course snacks are a big part of that. We love a good bag of popcorn so I was thrilled to receive a selection from the lovely people at Popcorn Shed. George and I have been trying it all out over the last few weeks so if you're a snack addict like me, you might want to keep reading!

Popcorn Shed is the UK's first premium gourmet popcorn brand, incorporating texture into each packet through the form of nuts, chocolate and even dried fruit. This enhances the taste of each flavour and I was so excited by the selection I was sent to try. I'd heard of Popcorn Shed before and their unique flavours but I'd just never got round to actually picking any up! Something else that's a little different about Popcorn Shed compared to other brands, is their funky packaging which is made to be like 'shed' cartons. Each have their own personality and theme so definitely stand out wherever you may find them!

I was lucky enough to receive two 80g packets, those being the flavours Pecan Pie and Say Cheese! I also got a little selection of some of their smaller packets in the flavours Berry-licious, Butterly Nuts, Pop 'n' Choc, Sweet Cheesus and Salted Caramel, so plenty to get stuck into and enjoy!

Pecan Pie £3.50

I'll start with Pecan Pie as that's the flavour I tucked into first. I was super excited to unwrap this, it's not a flavour I'd usually pick up if I saw it in a shop but wow, it was absolutely delicious! The pecan pie flavour is a nutty, buttery smooth caramel popcorn with golden roasted pecans which add texture and crunch. If you like toffee popcorn, I'm sure this would be a hit with you. The main flavour I picked up on each time I took another handful was the caramel which was delicious but the addition of pecans really is heavenly and it just makes it a little different to your basic sweet popcorn. I found this flavour to be extremely moreish which means it's easy to get through the whole lot in one sitting so I'll definitely be picking more up in the future. I also really love the colour of this particular carton, inspired by autumn, it's just perfect for this time of year!

Say Cheese £3.50

The next 80g carton I tried was the Say Cheese flavour which is inspired by a quaint farmhouse chateau shed nestled in an idyllic French ville. I'm not going to lie, I was sceptical about this! I love salted popcorn and I'm usually all for savoury snacks over sweet but cheese flavoured popcorn? I had no idea what to expect. I did end up being pleasantly surprised though! This sharp mature cheddar cheese popcorn is perfect for when you just need something savoury, does anyone else have times like that? I often find in the afternoons, I'm desperate for a snack like this. What I liked about this was that you get a subtle salty hit so the tangy cheese isn't too overpowering. I'm not sure this is a flavour I would necessarily rush to buy in future but I'm glad I tried it and if you're a big cheese fan, I'm sure this would be perfect for you! Maybe a quirky accompaniment to a cheeseboard this Christmas?!

Onto some of the smaller packets I've been trying out. I loved that the selection was a mix of savoury and sweet. It meant I could try out the Pecan Pie and Say Cheese flavours first before opening the bigger packets and also the wide variety in flavours meant there was something ready to enjoy, no matter what I fancied that day. The first flavour out of all of these we chose to indulge in was the Salted Caramel which is a mix of buttery caramel and creamy Belgian milk chocolate - it was divine! I've spotted this in Superdrug on offer for £2 so I'll definitely be stocking up for us to enjoy over the festive period. Another flavour that we liked was the Butterly Nuts. As soon as I saw this packet, I couldn't wait to dive in! Combining rich creamy peanut butter caramel with real peanut halves, it's the perfect mix of sweet and salty.

I've absolutely loved trying out all of these flavours from Popcorn Shed and I can't wait to pick up more! I tend to stick to the same brands when picking up popcorn for a movie night but I think Popcorn Shed have become a new favourite. I love how unique each flavour is, when you open a packet it's impossible to stop, they are all incredibly moreish and make the perfect snack for a cosy evening in. I think my favourite definitely has to be the Salted Caramel or the Pecan Pie, both I never wanted to end. One thing I do really like about Popcorn Shed too is that each of their flavours have a story. The packaging and colours have all been inspired something which I think is lovely, it shows that so much effort has gone into each and every product they sell. If you want to try out any of these flavours yourself, the 80g cartons are £3.50 on their website and you can even bulk buy the smaller packets too if you'd like!
