It all started when Todd said he thought the cheap popcorn in a bag was not nearly as good as the more expensive Orville Redenbacher popcorn in a bottle. I picked up a couple more fancy bottles of popcorn from Target, invited over the neighbor kids and held a blind taste test of popcorns and popcorn toppings.
We assessed the flavor as well as the color, texture and popping structure. The cheap popcorn in the bag got no votes. The Orville Redenbacher popcorn won with three votes out of six (I guess I have to admit Todd was right). And I thought the “cinnamon toast” or “kettle corn” topping would win for sure but “sea salt and vinegar” was the crowd favorite with parmesan cheese coming in second.
Now we’re brainstorming more fun, summer taste tests. Donuts anyone?
