POPCORN INDIANA REVIEW – FIT Sea Salt Popcorn

I’ve been making popcorn on the stove top with a little bit of coconut oil as my go-to “crunchy” snack. (One of the brands of popcorn kernels that I buy is the Eden Organic Popcorn Kernels.) I usually add a pinch of sea salt and some nutritional yeast, or I go the “desserty” route and heat up a bit of coconut oil with some xylitol and cacao power (and sometimes some tahini!) and then drizzle it over the popcorn and pop it into the freezer until it hardens. It is soooo good. 😀

But anyway! Popcorn Indiana asked if I would like to try their Sea Salt popcorn. 😀 I also decided to buy and review another of their products and test it out too, which was their Chip’ins Sea Salt Popcorn Chips. My reviews are always my honest opinion, so I will give the pros and cons of each! Everyone has different preferences, of course, so if you want to try something that I don’t happen to like, don’t let that deter you.

Popcorn Indiana Sea Salt Popcorn

PROS

  • Convenient / Ready to be eaten
  • Vegan
  • Only three ingredients
  • Gluten-Free (popcorn already is, but sometimes ingredients are added to popcorn that make it not gluten-free)
  • Nice texture
  • One of the healthiest choices from Popcorn Indiana
  • Kosher
  • Healthier choice than theatre popcorn / artificially flavoured popcorn / popcorn with 10+ ingredients of gunk

CONS

  • More expensive that buying popcorn kernels and popping your own
  • Too salty (for my tastes – I never really add much salt to anything and don’t like really salty things as it is) / High in Sodium

Popcorn Indiana Chip’ins Sea Salt Popcorn Chips

PROS

  • Not too salty / Seems less tasty than the popcorn, even though it apparently contains more sodium
  • Great texture – Really yummy with salsa and hummus!
  • Better substitute for most potato chips / tortilla chips (contains less fat and no artificial ingredients)
  • Only 3 ingredients
  • Kosher
  • Vegan

CONS

  • Not really a con, but they are so tasty that I ate way too many of them in one sitting 😉
  • Higher sodium than the Popcorn Indiana Sea Salt popcorn

Popcorn Kernels

PROS

  • Cheaper than already popped popcorn
  • You can flavour it however you wants / choose how salty or sweet you want it to be
  • Portion control – I find that I can go overboard with a bag of something. With popcorn kernels, I can just pop as many or as few as I’d like.

CONS

  • Takes a few minutes to pop them
  • You pretty much need to add something to it to make it taste like anything

 

Conclusion: So, as far as crunchy savoury treats go, Popcorn Indiana Sea Salt Popcorn / Chip’ins isn’t too bad, however I find it is easy to overindulge (or maybe it’s just me … I doubt it though :P) and therefore go a little overboard with the sodium. Would I say to pick this over popping your own? No, but sometimes it is nice to have convenience items so we don’t have to prepare everything, especially if you’re choosing between a bag of oily chips and these. I’d pick Popcorn Indiana over most other chip/popcorn products out there. As far as chippy/crunchy packaged snacks go, I give this a 7.5/10. Probably would have been a 8/10 if it was less salty. 🙂
