Reg and I LOVE Smartfood! We enjoyed taste testing their Jalapeño & Cheddar and my favourite is their Creamy Dill so when they wrote me and said they wanted to send me a new flavour I of course said, “How soon can you get here?”
Well not in those exact words but not that long after I said yes please this package was delivered to my door.
The new flavour is Gouda & Chive but I also received White Cheddar and Jalapeño Cheddar. Popcorn Nirvana!
It is all part of their #smartstash campaign and did I need some me time? Heck ya. My site got hacked over the weekend. Needed to drown some of those foodie woes with some flavoured popcorn.
The Main Event
The Gouda & Chive Smartfood was the main event. Specialty cheese with herby chives? I loved the flavour combination.
“Smartfood® Gouda & Chive is a perfectly seasoned cheesy treat that brings together the creamy flavour of Gouda and fresh tasting flavour of Chives into a light and airy treat! This latest addition to the Smartfood family is delicious and air-popped to deliver a flavourful experience with every bite.”
The Taste Test
Yes, yes, yes it all sounds good in theory but how does it taste?
Reg came home after a long and challenging day and we broke into the bag and attacked.
We decimated that bag in what felt like seconds. This popcorn is creamy, cheesy and oniony. It delivers on its promise to give you all the flavours and actually contains chives:
“Popcorn, vegetable oil, seasoning (corn maltodextrin, buttermilk powder, onion powder, salt, sugar, natural flavours, cheddar cheese powder, herbs [contains chives], garlic powder, skim milk powder, gouda cheese, acacia gum, colour)”
So not only is there gouda in there you also get cheddar cheese powder and is it ever smart to use buttermilk powder! I gotta try that on my own popcorn some time.
Reg loved it and thought Smartfood’s Gouda & Chive was pretty darn perfect. I really liked it but I wanted it to have even MORE flavour. Then again, you also have to remember, their creamy dill is my favourite because I prefer extreme flavours.
A delicious cheesy onion take on popcorn that I will happily keep in my #smartstash. I give this product four out of five wooden spoons.
Debra She Who Seeks says
I’ve always liked Smartfood’s original White Cheddar popcorn but alas, I’ve had to swear off popcorn altogether since I got my new bridge a year ago. I can’t risk getting popcorn husks up underneath it. Too bad — I miss popcorn!
Suzie the Foodie says
Oh yes, that is a classic Debra! What a shame you can’t have popcorn anymore, I am so sorry to hear that.
