Half popped, but double delicious

I recently discovered a savory and scrumptious edible you’ve probably never heard of before….HalfPops.  HalfPops (as the name implies) are half popped popcorn kernels that provide a crunchy and flavorful snack…perfect for road trips!

HalfPops is a newbie to the snack food scene and currently only have two flavors, butter and sea salt and aged white cheddar. However, they do have several other flavors in development and are seeking customer feedback as to which flavor should be next–leading the votes is “Natural Kettle Corn,” which got my nod.

I’m fascinated by how HalfPops came up with this new snack category, and how they’re able to only pop the kernels halfway…so with an air of naivete, I asked a company representative if they could explain the process.  Of course, there is a reason this concept is new–needless to say, the process is a closely guarded secret. All they would tell me is that they air-pop the kernels in a patented process that involves moisture content. I tried.

While HalfPops might not be guilt-free, this snack is more healthful than other choices.  HalfPops have/are:

  • Gluten and nut free
  • Zero grams of trans fat
  • No corn syrup
  • No artificial flavors
  • No hydrogenated oils
  • No preservatives

Suggested retail price is: $1.49 per 2oz package or $3.49 for a 7oz package.  HalfPops are popping up at retails stores near you.  If you can’t find them at your favorite store, you can purchase directly at HalfPops.com.

If you’ve ever tried “HalfPops,” let me know what you think.  If you haven’t had them before, would you’d try them?  Please leave comments below.
