Sweet popcorn flavours are continuing to emerge, when will it end, and more importantly, would we want it to? The latest interesting flavour I spied was this "Honey Bee" popcorn from Metcalfe's, which is apparently honey on toast flavour. Why the toast, I'm not sure, but hey, honey popcorn is something I've never tried before, so in my basket it went.
I'm still not sure about the toast part, I certainly didn't taste any toast in there, and there's nothing toast-like in the ingredients. There is some honey powder in there though, and that lends to a quite nice, authentic honey flavour. It's sweet and smooth, and really permeates throughout the whole bag, while being light enough to not overwhelm everything else. There is quite a bit of sugar on top though, and that makes just a little too sweet. There's also some salt thrown in, which is quite noticeable, and is a little jarring compared to the high amount of sweetness going on. Still, this is popcorn that tastes like honey, it delivers what it promised. Definitely another nice sweet flavour you can choose from for your food shopping.
My rating: 4/5
