Hi food friends. I can’t seem to recall the last time a popstar had their own food product, that is outside of being on the cover of a Wheaties box. When I found out that Katy Perry was getting her own flavor of Popchips, I was curious to see what kind of flavor she would go with. I spotted these at Target and thought I Would give them a go. I enjoy kettle corn, and Popchips are alright, so it couldn’t’t be too bad, right?
Much like the two previous reviews on this blog, There was really no stretch of the imagination when it came to picking a flavor that could be endorsed by someone like Katy Perry. I guess the kettle corn angle works because she could claim that shes a little bit rock n’ roll and a little bit pop, but eh. The outside of the bag had cute little sparkles all over the chips, so I was hoping that Popchips would bust out the disco dust and add some glitter to my chips. I guess that would drive away some of their audience though, but I guess nothing stops me from doing that myself eh? Too much effort.
The chips deviate from the normal round Popchip and are triangles. They remind me a lot of the rice cakes that Quaker Oates has as far as texture. They are kind of a compressed popcorn, and are slightly sweet and salty. I really enjoyed these as it was a nice balance of both vs too much of one or the other.
The evil thing about Popchips is that they make their bags slightly smaller than a normal chip bag, so the chances of you eating the entire thing, like I did, are good. Overall I thought these were decent, but I fail to see the connection between the chip and Katy.
Texture : 4/5 – These chips have a nice crunch to them that makes them rather addicting.
Smell : 2/5 – These chips had hardly any smell to them. You could slightly smell buttery popcorn, but it was really faint.
Appearance: 2/5 – I already voiced my sadness about how there was no glitter on these chips. There is nothing special about the way that they look. Just a plain white triangle. BOO.
Taste: 3/5 – I must have hit a run of the mill snack food streak because nothing I have been buying lately as been incredible. These were good, and I ate the whole bag, but they could have been anyones kettle corn and I would have probably done the same thing. I’d buy them again, but they are not something I would go out of my way to find.
