"Bacon popcorn? How absurd!", I hear you cry, but you're forgetting that everything is better with bacon, because that's the American way. You can tell this is an American product because it has some of that weird, streaky, thin rectangular bacon you see in the States, and not the good rounded chunky stuff you get over here. You also know it's American because it's bacon popcorn. Anyway, the guys who made bacon popcorn have also created bacon salt and Baconnaise, so this is probably made with some loving bacon experience. So into the microwave it went.
A little burnt, but still good. How does it taste? Not amazing. Come on, it's bacon popcorn, what do you expect? It's pretty much like salted popcorn, except a whole lot more salty, and with a interesting taste to it. I wouldn't call it bacony, it's kind of a smokey meaty flavour. A little bit of a burnt flavour. Perhaps with all the bacon related words and imagery they plant all over the bag your mind will lead you to think that's just what bacon tastes like, but it's certainly unlike any bacon I've tasted.
So sorry, bacon popcorn. You certainly aren't a terrible popcorn, but you aren't a great bacon product. Perhaps I shall go on the hunt for something else promising me bacon where bacon should not be.
My rating: 2/5
