Wrong instructions or faulty product?
Major flaw with this product. If you cook it, as the packet says "stop when the pops are 2 to 3 seconds apart", it comes out burnt. Tried the second pack, this time pulled it out while it was still popping quite vigorously and again it was burnt but this time lots of unpopped kernels. It is a problem with the 'sweet' part of this pack as the salt version of these cook fine without burning. The part you put downwards in the microwave looks like the source of the burning, on my second attempt it was all burnt and covered in unpopped kernels, all the popcorn around it was burnt too. First attempt was 90 secs in the MW, second was 70 secs, so both times way under the recommended times. So instead of having my house smell of popcorn, it smells of burnt popcorn which isn't a great smell and surprising hard to get rid of.
Don't waste your money
Nasty. Literally no flavour, expected much more from this brand.
Nothing like the brand’s ready popped stuff
Burns very easily and really isn’t very sweet. I didn’t expect it to be as good as the ready popped stuff, but it’s really flavourless and thoroughly disappointing. Wouldn’t buy again!
How do you make bad quality popcorn? No flavour, easily burnt or not all kernels pop.
Artificial taste and not particularly sweet
Not as sweet as cinema popcorn and it has a very synthetic taste. I checked the ingredients expecting to see artificial sweetener, but surprisingly it is real sugar. I don't know what's producing the synthetic flavour, but I won't be buying this again.
This popcorn is not as good as the butterkist range. Which annoyingly is available when you go in store but says it's not when you do online shop.
It's ok, but not sweet. Tastes of virtually nothin
It's ok, but not sweet. Tastes of virtually nothing. Either that is what they are meant to be or they forgot to add flavouring. But if you want to write sweet on your packet then it should be sweet. No?
Firstly, this is very greasy: not something I associate with popcorn. Being microwaved it continues to cook when you've taken it out of the cooker and, I found, this produced two unwanted effects: the last stray kernels may pop as you open the bag and the sweet stuff burns to the side of the bag, although it may have seemed fine when you took it from the microwave. Also the packaging is misleading about calories - the count given is for less than a third of one of the three individual bags (20g of 70g). I might be wrong, but I think most people would consider 70g a portion of popcorn.
