Review of Popcorners Popped Corn Chips

by StevenHelmer

I purchased this product at Costco this past weekend. Read to find out what I thought of it.

Product Description: "Popped" corn chips from the Popcorners brand. The chips are gluten free, made with no artificial ingredients and are not fried. My wife and I picked up a variety box of these chips while shopping at Costco this past weekend. I've been taking a bag of these chips with me to work daily as a snack.


When my wife and I went to Costco this past weekend, we were determined to just pick up what we came for and avoid purchasing spur-of-the-moment items.  However, as is often the case, that went out the window when I tried a free sample of the Popcorners product.

We don't need too many snack foods in our house now that the kids are done with school for the summer and don't need bagged lunches. However, all of us do, on occasion, want something light to eat and this product fit that category perfectly.

I picked up a variety box of the chips, which included cheddar cheese flavored, sea salt flavored and kettle corn flavored. I have since had an opportunity to try all three of them and, while the cheese variety is easily my favorite (you can never go wrong with cheese) I found I liked all the varieties.

One of the things that really stood out for me when I first tried these chips was the texture. Even without seeing the bag, it was pretty obvious there was something different about this snack item. The chips were light and crispy and you could definitely tell they were made from popped corn rather than potatoes.

Also, unlike so many other chips/snacks we've purchased, this product makes sure to let you taste the natural ingredients. In other words, the natural flavor isn't covered up with a heavy coating of salt (and this includes the sea salt variety).

Another thing I've noticed about these chips is they don't leave my fingers feeling greasy after I've eaten them. This is a pretty big deal for me because I will often have something like this when I'm at work and greasy fingers aren't always convenient in that environment. That, coupled with the good taste, make them an excellent at-work snack.

Final Opinion

If you like snacks that offer a healthier alternative, the lack of artificial ingredients and preservatives are attractive. If you like snacks that offer a good and unique taste, this is a product that definitely fits that category as well. I recommend them as a result.

StevenHelmer, Thank you for practical information, pretty pictures and product lines.
Cheese, kettle and sea-salt variations are all varieties that I look for in snack foods. Do you know if Food Lion or Kroger carry them?

Kroger has a cash-back program, whereby they promote certain items that the customer then gets cash back on to put into a customer relations account accessible through one's Kroger card. I learned about Cretor's popcorn that way. You and your wife might want to try the product (and get cash back if Wisconsin Kroger stores participate in the program). I recommend the cheese and caramel and the dark chocolatey drizzle.
