Walkers are continuing their foray into the popcorn scene, after bringing out the sweet and salty Mixups and the Sensations range. In fact, there's already been a salted caramel Sensations popcorn, so this sweet caramel Sun Bites popcorn didn't seem too original at first glance. It does appear to be a healthier take on the whole thing though, opting for sweet caramel instead of salty, and using wholegrain popcorn. But is it any good?
This popcorn is of a good quality, I'd definitely rate it higher than the one found in the Mixups bag. I guess the wholegrain works in its favour, it's overall a cleaner tasting popcorn, and it has a nice crunch to it. As for the flavouring, it's not bad, a sweet caramel taste that doesn't quite permeate into the kernels but provides a decent covering. It's not too strong, but it works nicely, and is a good fit for this "healthier" bag of popcorn. This is a tasty bag of popcorn, and while in a calorific sense it may not quite be better than a packet of crisps, it would make an interesting change.
My rating: 4/5
