SKINNY TOPCORN

Metcalfe's Skinny Topcorn is something I'm sure many of you have already heard of and maybe even tried. A while back they sent me this awesome box to try out different flavors. I happily thought that I've got a nice snack to take to University with me every day for a week, but, in fact, I did finish all 6 packets in less than 2 days, before said week even started - oops! It was super fun trying out each flavor, while imagining myself to be some high-class food judge from Masterchef. While having one of the popcorn packs the other day, I randomly checked the calorie content of an Oreo pack that was lying on my desk and it turns out that, roughly, one packet of Metcalfe's Skinny Topcorn has the same calorie content as just 2 Oreos!!!!!
Now I'll briefly describe each flavor! Chocolate Crackle was one of my favorites - it literally has little chocolate pieces on the popcorn and they do crack, which was something I never tried before! Wasabi Glaze made me a bit reluctant at first as I absolutely despise wasabi and anything spicy, but when I eventually tried it, it was not too strong. You could taste the wasabi slightly but it was more like a light seasoning, so it was fine! Sweet 'n Salt was amazing as the pack literally had a mix of both. For someone like me who likes both sweet and salty popcorn equally much it was great finally not having to choose one or the other! Sea Salt in my opinion was quite plain, I didn't taste much saltiness there unfortunately but I am known for always adding extra salt to everything as it's "not salty enough", so that might be the reason.. Heat 'n Sweet flavor was quite nice although at first I was reluctant because I thought it would be hot. It definitely was a bit *hot* and almost too hot for me to handle but I really do have the most ridiculously low tolerance for hot and spicy food, haha. In the end I quite liked this flavor, me and Rosie decided that it has a nice salsa aftertaste. Saving the best to last, Sweet Cinnamon Spice, which was definitely my favorite from all! I'm not a fan of cinnamon so I did not see this one coming, but as soon as I tried some of the popcorn, I was HOOKED. Definitely going to be on the lookout for this flavor!
If you would like to try some skinny topcorn yourself, you can buy them online or in any regular shop in the UK :)
