It's been a couple of days since I did something Christmassy, so let's get back into the festive spirit. New seasonal flavourings seem to be appearing in drips and drabs, and today I found this limited edition variety of Tesco Finest popcorn nestled among the rest. Thankfully they've forgone the obvious ginger, and have instead opted for a fruity concoction of orange and cranberry. There's also a cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top, because Christmas.
I'm glad they went for the fruity option here, because this is actually some pretty good stuff. The orange toffee gives a nice citrus punch, and the cranberry pieces give a burst of juiciness, even if the flavour isn't overly noticeable at times. The cinnamon sugar provides a nice, warm hint of spice, nicely rounding off the flavour. The only thing I would say is that the kernels were a bit inconsistently coated. The majority were fine, but there was the odd one that had barely any flavouring at all, and it was a little jarring. Still, this is a decent bag of popcorn, one that packs a very festive flavour, so pick it up while it's still around.
My rating: 4/5
