Metcalfe's Skinny Popcorn Review!

Last week I was sent some samples from Metcalfes to review. I was sent the 'Sweet n Salt TopCorn', 'Sweet Cinnamon Spice TopCorn' and 'Dark Chocolate Corncakes'. I had tried the Corncakes before so knew I was going to like them but hadn't tried the popcorn so I was really excited to see what they were like!

Sweet and Salt Popcorn -
Metcalfes
I have tried sweet popcorn alone before and the same with salted but I have never tried them together and I really didn't know what to expect with this pack. The taste was a bit unusual and takes some getting used too and i'm still not 100% sure what I think about it! The scent and taste of both flavours isn't too strong so one doesn't overpower the other which is really good and you can definitely differentiate between the flavours when eating them. My partner George loved these and ate through most of the bag after I had tried them so i'm sure he would be more than happy to eat them if I bought some in the future. I love that this bag is only 115 calories so is a healthy snack and you don't have to feel too guilty after eating them! You also get loads in the bag too, no scrimping with this popcorn! 

Sweet Cinnamon Spice Popcorn -

This flavour really satisfies you if you're looking for a sweet treat but don't want to reach for the chocolate bars! This bag is also low on calories at only 117 per bag which again is just great for the amount you get in the bag! Such a healthy alternative to chocolate and crisps. This tastes similar to the regular sweet bags but with a bit of extra flavouring and the hint of cinnamon every so often. The cinnamon isn't overpowering or too strong like I thought it might be when I first saw it. I don't think it is a flavour I would have purchased before but I would definitely think about it next time and George also loved it and finished the bag! 

Dark Chocolate Corncakes. 
Metcalfes
As I said I have tried these before so knew I would like them! I have had the original size corncakes before but these are much more convenient and the bag itself is easy to fit into your bag if you go out. I would take these in my bag for work or university as they are great to snack on and so much better than taking packets of crisps with you instead. Each bag contains two servings and it is 118 calories per serving which again is low and great if you are on a diet or watching what you eat. I will definitely be buying these again in the future, I had them in the afternoon as a snack after lunch and they kept me going until I had a meal later on in the day. 

I was only sent these three products to review but while we were out a few days ago I also spotted to original salt flavour by Metcalfe's. I ate all of it in one go and it was definitely my favourite flavour so far from the popcorn range. It was only 80p in the shop we were in which is a great price and all the other flavours I have tried have been around the same price. Overall, I have loved trying these items for Metcalfe's and will definitely be purchasing their products at some point in the future!
