Popcorn Pete's (18) 3.5 oz. Virtually Hulless Popcorn
Maybe it is my taste buds but I don't see any difference between this popcorn and the popcorn you buy in the store except this is much more expensive.
Bag Was too Greasy
We have tried two bags, and both tasted good. We also agree there were fewer hulls than any microwave popcorn we have bought. For those reasons, we would recommend this to a friend - but not without a caution about greasy bags. We would be less likely to give some as a gift. The outsides of the popping bags arrived soaked in oil. We originally thought the first bag we pulled from the box had a hole in it, but upon looking at the other bags, they are all the same. If they are this oil-soaked in the beginning, it's no telling what they will look like by the May 2016 expiration date. We like the product, but suggest Pete looks for better packaging.
I have bought this popcorn before and it was much better then this time. I don't know what they are doing different but its not as good as the other times I have bought it......Go back to your old ways of making this popcorn, please.....
No better then store popcorn
I popped my first bag tonight and now will review it as I see it. First of all when I took it out after popping the underside was soaked thru with the oil and was actually dripping when I took it out. Put it in "this side up" so don't know why the soak thru. Then it was the taste test, looking at the picture above it shows butter but I sure couldn't find any so next bag will have to add my own. Second thing which I did like is that it was really salty which works for me. I think I will go back to the popular theater butter popcorn and with that you can get 24 bags for far less then this.
Perfection! This is the best popcorn I have ever tasted! It is true, there are practically zero hulls. The popcorn is fluffy, crispy and down right yummy. Wish I could get this at the theaters, but at least I can enjoy it at home while watching a movie.
This product was not what I expected as I still had hulls caught in my teeth. Not as many but still there. Also, there was a greasy, buttery coating on the popcorn that was too strong for my taste.
NOT VIRTUALLY HULLESS
This popcorn is not virtually hulless. Has just as much as store brands. It does fluff up to bigger pieces but no difference as far as less hulls. The flavor is good but unfortunately still can't eat popcorn due to dental work! Hulls get stuck in your teeth. Very disappointed as I thought I would be able to finally eat popcorn again! I would not recommend this if you are looking for popcorn with less hulls! Taste is OK. Not virtually hulless.
Too Much Butter and all doesn't pop
This has too much butter. More like the movie type. Had more than half of the kernels did not pop. Will not purchase again unless they offer no butter but with a little salt. My fault that I ordered, since I did not check the website, ordered off tv presentation, did not hear that this had extra butter. If you like the movie time popcorn, you will like this. I know I will not order this again unless they offer the regular without butter.
Request Lower fat/Lower salt
Love Love this popcorn. Best I have ever tasted.
But cannot eat as much as I would like.
This could be the healthy snack everyone is looking for.
PLEASE develop a Lower fat/ Lower Salt version. From the reviews, a lot of people would buy it.
I volunteer to be a taster!
This product has great taste, but I found the "Virtually Hulless" part not to be true. At least with the order I received. I will not purchase this item again. Was disappointed.
Not worth it
I ordered them hoping for a healthy microwave product but this is not it....... the bag is good size and pops well but it is very greasy.....Better off with air pooped corn. Really wanted to love it but sadly do not.
Calories & Grease
Taste is okay and they are virtually hulless, but the bag is loaded with grease & calories. Won't order anymore.
