Snack Review- Propercorn

About
Propercorn was launched in 2011 by two best friends, Cassandra & Ryan. Cassandra says that her father was useless at cooking but made the best popcorn! And they would always experiment with different flavours when she was younger. So when she got older and thought back to these fond memories; Propercorn was born. They like to only use flavours that can be found at home. As well trying to keep everything guilt free, they are also a proud British brand. The create their flavours in London, while popping & packaging every piece of corn in the midlands!

Flavours
Smooth Peanut & Almond, Lightly Sea Salted, Fiery Worcester Sauce & Sundried Tomato, Sour Cream & Black Pepper, Sweet & Salty and Sweet Coconut & Vanilla.

Nutrition Info
All of the packets are suitable for vegetarians with some being suitable for vegans. As well as being GMO and gluten free. So they can be a great snack for a variety of people! The amount of calories in each pack do vary but all of them come under 130 kcals. They only use butterfly corn which is a great source of fiber, so they would be a great way of sneaking this into your diet.

Thoughts
I've only tried two flavours but I love them! I think their flavours are unique while keeping to the good old classics as well. I have to say, I also absolutely love their packaging! Which brought them to my attention in the first place. I've been trying to find a better alternative crisps, as I love them and eat them a lot! But they are so bad for you. So i'm happy I've found these are there are quite a few flavours to play around with. I think I also enjoy them more because I know they aren't as harmful for you as crisps... I also adore the fact that they are british and everytime I buy a pack I'm supporting a homegrown company.

The two flavours I tried were; Fiery Worcester Sauce & Sundried Tomato and Sweet Coconut & Vanilla. At first, I didn't know what to expect with either of them. My only experience of popcorn was sweet and toffee... Not exactly adventurous OR healthy. The worcester & tomato one is sooo tasty! The flavours you get from them are amazing, they also have a little kick to them which is nice. I think they are my favourite by far.  I was a little apprehensive to try the coconut ones, because to me its a strange flavour for anything. But the vanilla bit definitely enticed me. Also, after speaking to a friend who had tried them I decided to take the jump and not be a wimp. The two flavours really do compliment each other and it is a nice change to just plain old "sweet". Both of them have been used quite mildly, so none of them are overpowering.

They are also quite filling, so they are great to have as snack or an added extra with your lunch. If you went for a sweet flavour, it would also be a great substitute for crisps and some choccolate. Trying propercorn is definitely making me want to find and try more flavours of popcorn! Even branching out to other brands. So If you would like me to do reviews on other brands, just let me know below!
