Singapore start up The Kettle Gourmet has launched an exciting new popcorn flavour that is specially catered for adventurous local tastebuds – Chicken Rice Flavoured Popcorn! Baked with chicken stock, traditional soy sauce, pandan and lemongrass, and a touch of cucumber and parsley, this was popcorn with a local twist amidst a medley of flavours that aim to shock!
When i took the first popcorn, my tastebuds and mind was just so confused. I loved the sugar and buttery caramel flavours on the popcorn, but then there was the depth of savoury, spice, lemongrass freshness and hints of ginger throughout. I put it down, feeling a bit put off, and thought that I would never eat it again. And then, I finished the whole pack within the next hour. Needless to say, I now feel guilty and decide that I should hit the gym. Indeed, the unique flavours could either grow on you or keep you decidedly set on traditional butter salt or sugary caramel.
Oh, and if Chicken Rice flavoured popcorn does not sound like it’s your thing, there is Teh Tarik, Cookies & Cream, and the good ol’ traditional Salted Caramel popcorn. These gourmet popcorn are now available at www.thekettlegourmet.com
Thank you The Kettle Gourmet for the popcorn shock
