I remember when I was just a little boy eating popcorn every chance I could get and even making it for my father so I could get my cut from him. How about you? Even to this day, I still love the stuff and still make it a lot for me and my wife (the wife likes it a lot with chocolate chips that melt on it when it is still hot and it takes her hours to eat it all!).Another thing I love about popcorn is that it is a great source of fiber in your diet and also has some protein in it. Which leads me to the popcorn king, Orville Redenbacher, with his many flavors for us to consume and enjoy. With that being said, I will review several of the different flavors he has to offer.
In this category there are eight different buttery flavors which I am more than glad to provide an overview of them for you. MOVIE THEATER BUTTER TUB is a great one to share with a friend or with family members.
Next is POUR OVER MOVIE THEATER BUTTER. This one is nice because you can control the amount of butter you want if you choose to and it includes two bags of popcorn and two pouches of butter in each box. For the butter junkies in your family there is
ULTIMATE BUTTER that is loaded with butter so it will put you into your happy place. This one comes in six bags so spread it out and enjoy it all week.
LIGHT BUTTER is for those people who like there popcorn without all that mess. It comes in six-pack bags. TENDER WHITE: this one still has a delicious butter flavor along with more nutritional value. This is just a sampling of what Orrville Redenbacher has in the buttery popcorn category.
Sweet & Savory Popcorn
For those of you out there with a demanding sweet tooth, (you know who these people are in your life – like for me, it’s my wife,) Orville Redenbacher’s is here to help you satisfy your craving! With three flavor which I will happily describe to you. The first is KETTLE KORN with a little sweet, a little salty—and a lot of yumminess. With six sweet and delicious bags for your feasting.
Second is, MELT ON CARAMEL. This one makes my mouth water because I just love caramel. It comes with two bags of corn and two pouches of delicious caramel. Finally, for cheesy people you know, there is CHEDDAR CHEESE popcorn. It has a hot and cheesy flavor fresh from the microwave. This too, comes in a box of six packets.
This one will entice people who are watching their calorie intake. It has only 100 calories per six cups and is 94% fat free popcorn. Enjoy the great taste and a nice aroma that you will love. There are two flavors to choose from. SMARTPOP KETTLE KORN is the first flavor with the same great taste as your favorite microwave kettle corn—slightly sweet, slightly salty, and 94% fat free.
Then there is SMARTPOP BUTTER with favorite buttery classic taste that’s 94% fat free and 100% yummie.
If you’re a person who just likes the all natural flavor of popcorn and none of the butter, sugar and cheese, this might be the one for you. There are three great products for you to choose from. Starting with SIMPLY SALTED. This product is just wholesome whole-grain goodness with popcorn, oil and salt—and nothing else. It comes in bags of six that you can share or just spread out for yourself.
For a little less salt there is LIGHT – SIMPLY SALTED. This popcorn also comes in six bags with just a lighter touch of oil and salt. Lastly, there is LIGHT – CLASSIC BUTTER & SEA SALT popcorn, with just a lighter touch of real butter flavor and sea salt. This one too comes in six-pack bags.
Kernels & Popcorn Oil
If you are someone who likes doing popcorn the old fashion way (which I used to do for many years til microwaves made me lazy,) Orville Redenbacher’s is here for you with two popcorn types and one oil for popping the corn with.
First is WHITE CORN GOURMET KERNELS with a crispy exterior and a tender interior. Then there is ORIGINAL YELLOW GOURMET KERNELS. It’s been a family favorite for forty years and I am sure it will be a family favorite for forty more years too. To finish it off, you’ve got to have the right popping oil and it is called POPPING & TOPPING OIL. Orville’s rich, buttery popcorn oil sizzles with more flavor than regular corn oil.
This one is making my mouth start to water because it has nuts in it (oh boy!) It comes in three flavors. The first is called ORIGINAL and it consists of Clusters of Almonds, Pecans and Gourmet Popcorn covered in a glaze.
The next flavor is CASHEW. The ingredients in this one are Clusters of Cashews and Gourmet Popcorn also covered in a glaze. Finally, there is PECAN Poppycock Popcorn. It is made up of Clusters of Pecan Praline and Gourmet Popcorn and is also covered in a glaze. And they say you don’t have to be Southern to fall in love with these gourmet popcorns.
Let us pop (corn) to the end
Orville Redenbacher’s has been around for many decades, four to be exact, and hopefully he will be around many more years to continue making delightful popcorn and treats. If only I had known about him when I was a boy, my father and I would have gorged ourselves on his popcorn. So stock your kitchen cabinets with a lot of Orville Redenbacher’s popcorn. I am sure you will enjoy every bite!
