Gourmet Popcorn Co. Toffee Crunch (Morrison’s) By @SpectreUK

Gourmet Popcorn Co. Toffee Crunch

The evenings on the weekends are usually pretty planned out for us. on Friday nights we game with Cinabar's brother and a friend down in Canterbury. At the moment it's shooting bad guys in Rainbow Six Siege. It's often one of the Halos or Ghost Recon Wild Lands or something else, but we're generally shooting something or other. Saturday nights is movie night. Cinabar and I sit down and watch most likely an action movie. Last Saturday was the last Mission Impossible movie, after we'd worked our way through the first five films on previous Saturdays. I like the guns and explosions and attractive women, but I can't see who attracts Cinabar in them?!

For tradition's sake we usually have popcorn with our Saturday movie. I like toffee coated popcorn and Cinabar likes sweet and salty, so we generally have a fairly small bag each. If there's no popcorn then I find sour gummy sweets are a good alternative. Anyway, I picked these Toffee Crunch popcorn from The Gourmet Popcorn Company up just before the original lockdown. They're in a bigger bag then I usually have, but I do work out at home quite a lot at the moment, so I can probably shoulder the extra calories.

On opening the bag unsurprisingly there was a very sweet honey and popcorn smell from its contents. I was a little disappointed to find that the popcorn inside the bag were not completely coated with honey. My favourite popcorn is completely coated with honey, so my first impressions were that these Gourmet Toffee Crunch would not be as tasty. Having said that these popcorn had a decent crunch, and whilst not completely coated in honey, they were very tasty. Just not as tasty as I was at first hoping!

Why would a toffee coated popcorn be coated in honey?

It turns out whilst Spectre was writing this blog he was also eating honey on toast.... (he meant toffee)
