I discovered Smartfood’s Creamy Dill Popcorn when I was at Dollarama. A large bag of flavoured popcorn for only $2? I was so excited I put my bag back on the very empty shelf, took a photo and then forgot to bring the bag home with me. Doh!
The next week I went back and this time remembered to pick some up, along with the classic white cheddar flavour for our D&D night.
No one was interested! Not even a little. Except me.
And I ate the whole bag by myself. Then next weekend I went back and bought another bag.
A lot of people said, “Ew!” on Facebook when I shared that I had bought it and my friend Michelle who is used to Kernels‘ version found it boring. Me? Kernels‘ dill is so strong and overpowering, if that is what you like then this will not compare. This is very toned down in comparison and I LOVE the creamy element.
I thought I was going to be the only one on the planet who appreciated the brilliance of this flavour combo until last weekend. Reg and I finally gave in to binge watching Jessica Jones and he wanted a snack. I said, all I have is creamy dill popcorn. He relented… And then fell in love with it too!
Yes, you can wrinkle your nose at the idea of dill popcorn or you can try it and see if it is really all that bad. Maybe you will discover that this is actually a delicious and genius flavour combo. Or like Michelle, you will be bored.
Me? I thought it was not too strong, loved the creaminess and the price was impossible to beat. I give this product five out of five wooden spoons.
