We truly live in a world of innovation – where you can truly bring anything you dream of to life. It sounds cliché and cheesy (and naysayers are likely exiting this article right about now), but evidence truly shows that this is true. Whether it’s a life of traveling for work, finding best friends online, or even creating your very own alcohol infused popcorn… it’s possible.
And that’s the story of Toronto based partners, Charlene and Vince, of Eatable Popcorn. Their story is centred around their passion, love, and dreamy sentiments around snacks and good tasting alcohol (sounds like a pair after my own heart). The problem they were out to solve was finding a snack that was not only delicious, but also clean and made with fresh, everyday ingredients.
Enter, Eatable Popcorn.
I love that their story wasn’t just about creating something to sell, but was about creating something they genuinely loved to consume themselves, handmade right here in their Toronto kitchen. Eatable Popcorn is an alcohol-infused popcorn inspired by cocktails, wine, and spirits that are made with 100% all natural ingredients. Their kernels are locally sourced (woot woot Canada!), and they don’t add any artificial colours, flavours, sweeteners, or preservatives. They wanted to create something that was not only delicious, but would be a sidekick to life’s moments – whether it’s relaxing at home watching Game of Thrones, celebrating a milestone, entertaining, or decompressing from a long day at work.
Needless to say, Dave and I were intrigued.
What does it actually taste like?
The story’s are all great and fun, but is it worth the hype? Dave and I put that to the test. Eatable Popcorn actually has what they call a 3-pack Connoisseur’s Flight which is the perfect tester to see if this is something up your alley. At an extremely affordable $18 for 3 bags, it’s worth the try.
We got to try 3 flavours: Whisky On The Pops, Pop The Champagne, and Poppin’ Merlot PB&J. Dave’s favourite was definitely Whiskey On The Pops and mine was Pop The Champagne. All of them included a not over-sweet, delightfully crunchy, pop-rocket-esque experience:
The flavour is jam-packed, but not over-done. It doesn’t make you feel like a bag of crap after you’re done the bag. And no, it doesn’t get you drunk haha
