a sweet not

I like to use this journal to keep track of things I treasure or value or just want to keep close to me. But this post is anything but...except maybe a reminder to stay the hell away! After reading poco-cocoa's top 5 food list, I figured that I should actually give kettle corn a chance and when I spotted some at the Gourmet Warehouse, I immediately picked some up. True, I'm sure fresh kettle corn is a heavenly thing, but yikes, this was a big $3.99 mistake. From what little I know of kettle corn, it should be sweet & salty...but this bag of SweetPops is only sweet...despite any claims to being salty on the bag. Too sweet in fact. I feel like I have to brush my teeth and eat a whole bag of salty pretzels to counteract the sugar rush I got from this popcorn. SweetPops is a sweet not in my book.

Maybe pork rinds might have been a better choice ?

That sucks you had a bad experience with Kettle Corn but honestly- popcorn is not my favorite thing in the world but "real" kettle corn is actually really good. If you ever see a stand at a farmers market or festival with the big ol' kettle sittin' out and corn a poppin' you have to try some. You will like guaranteed.
