Have you heard of Poppycock
? Not the word, which means “nonsense”, Orville Redenbacher’s gourmet popcorn snack? It contains clusters of almonds, pecans and gourmet popcorn, covered in a sweeten glaze. I, myself, had never heard of it until I received a can to review. Deciding to give it the ultimate taste test, I took it with me to my mother’s place for our holiday feast.
I tried to sneak it in with the other snacks as we played our Disney games but no one wanted to try it! My brother said he refused to eat any nonsense! In fact, he said he refused to eat anything with the last four letters of “Poppycock” (except he said the actual word!). Needless to say. no one was willing to give it a taste test.
I was undaunted and refused to give up!
The next evening we had friends over. When I put out the snacks, I again put out the can of Poppycock. My 8 year old took up his uncle’s mantra, stating very loudly, that he refused to eat anything with the same word my brother used. Of course, he didn’t understand what he was saying and neither did his little friend but they kept repeating it! At this point, I wanted to knock my brother out, but since I couldn’t, I had to sit my son down and explain to him what that word meant and why he shouldn’t yell it out. Needless to say, he refused to eat any Poppycock after I did!
In the end, my girlfriend, her 2 year old, and I ate the can of Poppycock. It was DELISH! We ate the entire can in one sitting, fighting each other off for the crumbs. Aside from the name, I wouldn’t change a thing about this gourmet popcorn! Hmmm but then again, the name makes it stand out!
In fact, I plan on purchasing two cans for friends as gifts at Walgreens. The name will give them a laugh while the taste will tantalize their tastebuds and I will get a FREE Redbox rental out of it! Check out the details below.
