Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Quaker Snack-a-Jacks Popcorn Confirmed sighting: Quaker Snack-a-Jacks Popcorn
Posted: 18:06 Mon 08-May-2006. Price: 48p/ approx 13g bag (currently 3 for 1 at Asda, Old Kent Road, London). Location: Asda. Sub-flavours: Lightly Salted; Butter Toffee. Nutritional unusualness: (Lightly Salted variety) 1.3g fat, 0.1g sugar, 0.1g sodium (0.2g "equivalent as salt") per bag.
"josie" reports: Saw these in Asda today. There were loads left on the shelf, so maybe won't be as popular as regular Snack-a-Jacks.

...Oh, I don't know "josie", I was pleasantly surprised by their near-total lack of nutritional value (and can't wait to try the Butter Toffee flavour). I'm slightly puzzled as to why they put quotes round Delicious kernels of 'popped' corn, lightly dusted with salt though, because this is clearly the real thing, right down to a few unpopped kernels to hurt your teeth on. Quaker are also doing some Lime and Coriander Seasons (to take on Tyrrells' new breadsticks?) but, back with popcorn, "Lauren" applauded the ConAgra Orville Redenbacher's Gourmet Microwave Popping Corn she bought in a "Co-op (Essex, UK)" (2.35 for box of 3, in Sweet and Salty, Honey Butter, or Movie Theatre Butter), revealing: I'm from the US and know the Orville brand very well and have always loved their popcorn so it was amazing to see it here in my local grocery store. Hopefully they will bring out more of the flavours that are posted on the website -"Caramel", "Corn on the Cob", or "Cinnabon Cinnamon Butter", for instance, but no fish and chips, strawberry cheesecake, or pesto?

Comment: Buying and making your own popcorn is much cheaper and nicer. If you want it low fat then just use sweetener instead of sugar.

Comment: "cinnabon cinnamon butter" as in the _real_ cinnabon?

*faints*

cinnabon is the greatest thing (apart from proper diet cherry coke) we don't have in the uk!

Comment: These are bogof in Superdrug and I tried the toffee ones but they seem to stick VERY badly to your teeth, much more than regular toffee popcorn.
