New Butterkist Yoghurt Coated Popcorn (Asda) [By @Cinabar]
I have to admit when I’ve thought about interesting popcorn flavours, yoghurt hadn’t really been on my wish list. Still if Butterkist makes it, I thought it had to be worth a try.
The Butterkist Yoghurt Coated Popcorn pieces are big and fluffy and have quite a generous coating of yoghurt on them. The texture of it is quite soft, softer than white chocolate, and very easy to eat. The popcorn underneath still has the great fluffy but crunchy texture, which is what I think I like best about popcorn.
Now on to the taste test, I loved the stuff. The flavour was amazing it was sweet and creamy and hit the spot perfectly. Each piece had a lovely rich toffee flavour and this creamy aftertaste.
Now there lies the problem, if I had been given these in a blind taste test I don’t think I would have guessed yoghurt. I would have gone for toffee and cream, I know thats not a thing, but it mostly closely describes what the flavour tasted off. This made them fantastic, but the yoghurty nature of them was a little lost. Sure there was perhaps a slight tangy bitter aftertaste that was supposed to represent the yoghurt, but really it was lost on the sugary goodness.
So in conclusion maybe not yoghurt flavoured exactly, but still a popcorn flavour I’ll be buying again as it was so darn tasty.
