How’s it hanging internet? Tonight I bring you a new offering from Orville Redenbacher. How this man keeps conducting new flavors from the grave is beyond me. Another thing I didn’t know? That there was a Brazil, Indiana. If you are wondering how the two are related, Orville was from Brazil, Indiana. So if you’re ever looking to take a vacation to an exotic destination, but don’t have a lot of money, why not stop on by Indiana? You could tell people that you went to Brazil over a long weekend and they wouldn’t know the difference!
Brown sugar cinnamon sounds like a match made in heaven. I like cinnamon/sugar things, like making my own mixture and pouring it on hot buttered toast, so I’m sure bringing brown sugar into the mix will only turn this popcorn up to 11. Target/Archer Farms makes an insanely good cinnamon and white chocolate drizzled popcorn that comes out during the holiday season that I had hoped this would taste similar to. Sadly popcorn and I have a love/hate relationship. I love it, but it hates me so I had high hopes because anytime I subject myself to foods that I ultimately end up regret eating, it better dang well be worth it.
I was expecting a light dusting on the popcorn, but when I opened the bag I was surprised to find a bag full of heavily coated popcorn. I grabbed a handful and was pleasantly surprised at the nice buttery taste melded together with the sugary sweeteners from the brown sugar. The cinnamon added a nice spice to the mix to round out the whole flavor. Overall I really enjoyed this popcorn and it measured up with the Archer Farms brand that I love so much.
Texture: 4/5 – The popcorn retains its crunchiness despite the heavy sugar coating. The coating does make it slightly chewy at the end.
Smell: 5/5 – When you open the bag you can really smell the sugar and cinnamon. Delicious!
Appearance: 3/5 – Visually the exterior coating is quite visible and you can see how much sugar and cinnamon is actually used on this.
Taste: 4/5 – I really enjoyed this popcorn and would buy it again. This would be a nice afternoon snack or a delicious movie theater treat, not that I advocate bringing in your own food 😉
