In June 21, Popcorn Kitchen’s ’s first incursion into extra indulgent popcorn was inspired by a number of timeless British treats, including everyone’s favourite citrus-centric cake (Lemon Drizzle) berry-based Eton Mess (Raspberry White Choc) and that timeless spherical stocking filler that needed only the lightest of taps to unlock an enticing aroma of orange oil infused milk chocolate (Chocolate Orange).
This November, following a successful pilot trial, Chocolate Mint becomes the latest quintessentially English addition to Popcorn Kitchen’s flourishing portfolio of indulgent flavours, offering more than a telling nod to yesteryear’s favourite wafer-thin after-dinner nibble.
According to Popcorn Kitchen co-owner, Andy Valentine, ‘Like so many ‘foodsmiths’ before us, we see the ‘greater than the sum of its parts’ potential of meshing an earthy dark Belgian chocolate with the light zing of peppermint and big dollop of British nostalgia. Simply put, this may well be the perfect sharing popcorn over the festive period, although you certainly needn’t wait until mid-evening before tucking in.’
Chocolate Mint (30g) ballpark RSP £1.30-£140
