I love popcorn, especially the ones covered in that thick crunchy caramel stuff. But these days I don't eat that kind of thing, far too many calories and way too much sugar. I usually make my own which I’ve written about here. It's very easy to do AND cheap!
So what are Tesco’s healthy eating popcorn snacks like? Here’s my verdict.
Sour Cream & Black Peppercorn: The first bite is an assault on the tastebuds. I thought it must be that I’m used to the plainer taste of my own popcorn. However, others agreed with me that the seasoning is strong.

Red Thai Curry: This flavour is gorgeous. I love Thai food, and although this is far from what you’d find in Thailand, the seasoning has grasped that unmistakably Thai tang of lemongrass and lime leaves. These are fantastic.
