I consider myself a bit of a chocolate covered popcorn expert. I’ve tried everything from Boy Scout popcorn to homemade chocolate popcorn balls. But this year I found my all-time new favorite, Popcornopolis! Although they have a number of great flavors (some of the odd people in my family prefer the savory over the sweet), by far my favorite is their signature Zebra.
Zebra Chocolate popcorn is caramel popcorn drizzled with stripes of dark chocolate and white chocolate. Normally I am not a fan of white chocolate, but there is something about this combination that makes it the absolute best popcorn I have ever tasted. I’m not even the type that gets popcorn at the movie theatre. If it doesn’t have the right kind of chocolate on it, I don’t bother. Zebra Chocolate is definitely the right kind of chocolate.
If you are more of a purist, Popcornopolis also has a Chocolate Caramel that is the same but without the white chocolate. But I really encourage you to try the Zebra, because it’s 10X better than it even sounds. They also have a Rocky Road if you like nuts (almonds in this case) in your caramel corn. The Rocky Road also has pieces of marshmallow. For a limited time, they have Candy Cane Crunch, which is dark and white chocolate infused with peppermint and a dusting of crushed candy canes. I have not tried that one yet, but it is on my list!
Lastly, they have a chocolate with peanut butter. I’m not a fan of peanut butter, so I did not even try it. I did buy a bag of it for the rest of my family and it disappeared within a day, so I am guessing that it was pretty good!
I do have to caution you about the “pickers” in the group. When you put out a bowl of this chocolate popcorn, keep an eye out for the people who immediately try to grab the big chunks of popcorn stuck together with extra chocolatey goodness. You’ll know what I mean when you dig into the bag. And if you are one of the “pickers,” make sure that you grab the bag first and pull out those big chunks before anyone else has the chance.
If you are looking for a great gift idea, Popcornopolis is the way to go. I actually buy it now every time I am entertaining groups of friends and have become kind of known for serving it. They have great coupons on their site and you can also use this code of ours DELISH20 to take 20% off any order if they are not running a better deal on their site.
