Tea Suggestion:

I figured I’d probably have a glass of iced tea with this treat, but then I thought … how about Genmaicha?  I bet that the roasty-toasty flavor in the tea will bring out the sweet corn flavors in the caramel corn.  One of the best Genmaicha teas that I’ve tasted in a long time is this Matcha infused Genmaicha from Aiya.  Pairing these two was a very delectable, savory experience!

What I Think:

I was so delighted when Bernod Group asked me to try their caramel corn.  First of all, I love caramel corn (what’s not to like?  A sweet, slightly chewy caramel coating over crisp popcorn?  YUM!) and even more importantly, my daughter loves the stuff… this would be a great opportunity for her and I to spend some time eating something yummy together!

The popcorn is popped up big and fluffy, and the caramel has generously coated each kernel … but each kernel is separate, and not attached together by the sticky caramel … which makes it easier to eat.  When I bite into a kernel, it is lightly crunchy but not not hard.  The caramel tastes sweet and buttery, and there is just enough saltiness to the popcorn (as well as the naturally savory element to the grain) to add some contrast.

I also noticed as we neared the end of the bag, that there were very few small pieces of popcorn – it’s as if the popped popcorn was sifted through to separate the small and unpopped kernels from the large, fluffy kernels.  I’m also noticing no uncomfortable hulls stuck in my teeth.

My Final Thoughts:

My daughter and I both really enjoyed this treat.  Every kernel has a good amount of sweet caramel coating but my teeth don’t feel sticky after eating it.   It’s crunchy, a little salty, and deliciously sweet.  And at $2.99 for a 7 oz. bag, it’s an affordable treat that’s fun and delicious for the whole family.
