We can always count on Trader Joe's to keep our snack drawers full. From dill pickle hummus to Everything But the Bagel Nuts, Trader Joe's is constantly coming out with new and exciting flavors that keep us going back to the store. Their latest addition to the snack aisle: Synergistically Seasoned Popcorn.
Trader Joe's Instagram fan account @TraderJoesAficionado shared pictures of the new, multi-flavored popcorn and we just had to try it out for ourselves. According to the package, the Synergistically Seasoned Popcorn is supposed to hit five major flavor profiles: tangy, sweet, salty, spicy and smoky.
EatingWell's senior digital nutrition editor Lisa Valente tested out the popcorn to see if the flavors melded together. "The popcorn tastes like salt and vinegar chips and BBQ chips made a popcorn baby, with a touch of heat," she says. And for Valente, who's not a fan of spicy foods, the popcorn managed to have "just a little bit of a kick," which comes from the cayenne pepper, but isn't too overpowering.
If you're a popcorn fan or love flavored chips, this snack is definitely worth picking up on your next TJ's run. It's bold in flavor, and pretty healthy.
