Mini Pop White Truffle (Popcorn Shed) By @SpectreUK

Popcorn Shed very kindly sent us a box of different flavours of their Mini Popcorn a while back. I should have written about these Mini Pop White Truffle flavoured mini popcorn around about then, but the box got sucked into the void of other boxes and bits and bobs in different places that we often have lying around. Fortunately all the different flavours have huge long best before dates on them, but I thought it was about time to blog, so here goes…

I have a confession to make to start with; I'm not a big fan of popcorn. I know, I know… some people prefer them to crisps, but I get a little irritable picking my teeth afterwards. The packet of these Mini Pops states "no floss required". I should have noticed that before!

On opening the packet there was quite an oily smell. I noticed in the ingredients that there are lots of different oils and there did seem to be a battle between them all going on inside the packet. The little white fluffy popcorns filling the packet didn't feel oily to the touch, but had an slight oily and very mildly spiced flavour. They had a subtle taste to them. Like they had walked past a pepper seller on the way to market. There was also a lightly salted flavour towards the aftertaste that gave my tastebuds a little tingle.

There was nothing to dislike about these popcorn and I can't say they didn't taste of anything either. I could almost hear spa music whilst I was eating these Mini Pop White Truffle popcorn. I could imagine myself just walking out of a sauna in a spa somewhere. An attractive woman in a spa uniform hands me a towel and says; "Your back massage and facial will be in a few moments time, Mr. Spectre. Please take a seat and have some nibbles and mineral water while you wait. Don't worry, you won't have to floss!"
