Popcorn Pete's (18) 3.5 oz. Virtually Hulless Popcorn
I ordered this product because I was tired of getting the hulls stuck in my teeth. I thought this would be the answer to that problem. However, I found that this product contained just as many hulls as the brands I have purchased at the grocery store. I was very disappointed in this product.
Best popcorn ever!
Purchased this for my husband..he won't eat any other popcorn now. It is as good as they tell you it is!
LOOK MOM, VIRTUALLY HULLESS!!!
This popcorn is so fluffy and tasty--we just LOVE it. I've had it sent to people in other states, using the "Bill to, Ship to" option, and they always tell me that it's the best popcorn they've found anywhere!
I had gotten to the point that I couldn't eat popcorn anymore. Due to getting epidurals [which contain steroids of course] for chronic back pain from a 2005 accident, my gums have started to "pull away" from my jaw teeth on both sides from the steroids, and the husks/hulls got under my gums and were a nightmare to remove. Not with THIS popcorn! I usually have only one husk that's hard to remove from my gums, with Popcorn Pete's---sometimes not even ONE. Have always loved, loved, loved popcorn, and now I can enjoy it again.
Yes, it's quite pricey--much more so than s'market popcorn, especially w/my additional 10% tax, but guess I think it's worth it to be able to enjoy popcorn again! I do believe though, that they could lower the price somewhat. After all, it's POPCORN for "Pete's sake!" [Pun intended.]
Btw, other states I ship to, do not require a tax on it, so I'm assuming that "food items" are not taxable in those states; so YOU might not have to pay ANY extra, since S/H is inclusive in the price.
Oh.. I see, reading reviews, that some people seem to think that "Virtually Hulless" means TOTALLY hulless, and saying that it's false advertising. To these people, I would suggest that they look up 'virtually' in a dictionary: "virtually" means ALMOST... and it IS almost hulless!
I am "virtually" a popcorn connoisseur, and I say, just give it ONE TRY, and you'll be back for more! ENJOY.... "
Not what I expected
I was disappointed in this popcorn. It still has hulls just not as many as regular popcorn. My main complaint it that it was so greasy. I couldn't return it by the regular method. So I just kept it but I won't eat it.
More calories than a cheeseburger
I was hoping to have this as a healthy snack at work and home and it is tasty.BUT...It was advertised as wholesome and it doesn't fit the healthy bill. It has 3 servings per bag, 140 calories, 9 grams of fat and 18 grams of carbs per serving. Who eats 1/3 of a bag of popcorn and who wants the equivalent of a hamburger for a snack? I'd give it 4 stars for taste, but the nutritional value just kills it. Might as well have a couple of candy bars.
Stale oil, so the popcorn tastes stale. Not true about no hulls. Not as many as normal, bot plenty to get in your teeth.
We Love this popcorn! Patients Is Rewarded!
We really like this popcorn! We don't have a bunch of hulls left over when we pop this corn, simply because we let it pop just a little while longer, & ours comes out just great! Not all microwave ovens are the same! Leaving the popcorn in about 45 seconds to 1 minute longer in our microwave, & the popcorn comes out great, not burnt, & with leaving behind just a few popcorn kernels behind! People these days want things lickety split! But patients practiced will be rewarded!
Maybe it had gotten frozen in transit, I don't know. I do know that what probably is the "butter like flavor" tastes very artificial and strange to me.
lots of hulls
Not as expected lots of hulls and very expensive. I will not order again.
FULL OF HULLS
I ordered because supposed to be hulless but it is full of hulls! Very dissapointed!
TOO MANY HULLS
I have an intestinal problem that prevents me from eating nuts, food with seeds, and hulls such as popcorn. This is virtually hull less? NOT A CHANCE. I spent a lot of time getting the hulls out of my teeth. My wife and I ate one bag and we will give the rest away with a warning about the hulls. This is the first popcorn I have eaten in many years and I was really disappointed.
Expected something Special
Very disappointed. Not virtually hulless!Will not purchase again
