One of the people I made the acquaintance of was a gentleman who I thought only had one business. Turns out Wayne has a couple with one of them being Pop Bite popcorn.
To date, Pete and I have been the old fashioned, oil in a pot and popcorn kernels kind of people. Then, Wayne asked if we would sample a few of his Pop Bite flavours; in return all he asked for was honest critic.
Pete’s first reaction was how he liked the good quality packaging and eye catching labels. We instantly noticed no MSG and no Tartrazine. How awesome to see a modern product with no artificial additives.
Wayne shared the intricate process involved in finding the right balance between oil, kernel and developing the spice mix all the while ensuring a good sealed package for enhanced shelf life. There has been a lot of research and hours in getting this product to fruition. Time well spent.
Pete and I both enjoyed the White Cheddar, Salted, Garlic & Feta and Salt & Vinegar flavours. We are still undecided on a favourite though so we will just have to keep at it until we find a winner. There was a lot of repetition in the house while taste testing – “We will definitely be buying this popcorn.” Clearly making our own is now a part of history.
I love how you can comfortably give this popcorn to your young’uns’ without worrying about them ingesting anything artificial. Great for birthday party eats.
Currently you can purchase Pop Bite popcorn at local Spar stores in the Eastern and Western Cape.
