Very bad quality
Taste is fine, but only 50% pops
Horrible popping corn
I’ll never buy it again.
Open & spilled bag
Doesn’t Pop Well
There is some inconsistency in quality, but we have never had a truly bad batch. All of the bags were within “best by” dates, so can only guess as to the reason.
We’ve popped this popcorn in several different types of poppers:
Microwave, using a Presto microwave popper (with the somewhat hard-to-get concentrators). Pops up very well but does leave quite a few unpopped. Let those settle to the bottom of the bowl and enjoy the rest. Do need to be careful near the end of the batch – dentists love unpopped popcorn.
Stovetop, using a WhirlyPop. Pops very well in the aluminum ones. Only problems have been with the Whirlypop and a tendency for popped kernels to get stuck under the stiring rod and burn.
In an electric popper (another Presto, but the West Bend should work fine too). Excellent results here – almost all pop and taste great. Must confess to using a little more oil than the manufacturer recommends.
In summary, this is a very good organic popcorn. It is as good or better than the other organic popcorns we’ve tried (better than most) and quite reasonably priced with the subscription.
1. Lots cheaper than grocery store price, and it was delivered quickly.
2. taste was judged to be as good or better.
3. more bulk and less waste than with Jiffy pop brand.
In addition, Monsanto is destroying the world with their GMO products which makes their corn resistant to the pesticide (also made by Monsanto) called Round-up. So once their corn is planted, it can be drenched in Round-up to kill the weeds and the corn still grows. I don’t want to be consuming Round-up when I eat. Nice huh? Sorry for the sidetrack. Just sayin. My point is, it was critical for me that the popcorn be organic for me to even eat any corn period. This popcorn is not only delicious, it is at an outstanding price of less than $1.45 a pound. With this purchase, you get 10.5 pounds of popcorn. I couldn’t find a cheaper organic popcorn than this one. If somebody does, please contact me. Once last thing, use Organic Coconut Oil if you want an extra healthy treat. Coconut oil handles the high heat necessary in making popcorn and is also extremely healthy for you. Tastes great. Don’t even need butter.
Works Great in our Popcorn Machine
Does Not Pop Well, at All! Eater Beware- could chip a tooth!
I agree. I will definitely buy something different next time.
This popcorn has a lot of duds
This can crack a tooth. The price is great, but it is not worth the gamble of breaking a tooth.
Will keep searching for good organic popcorn.
Sent an opened bag, taped back together!!!! Unacceptable!
Best popcorn I’ve ever made at home
Not your ordinary popcorn
I’m no “organic” food expert. I just wanted some good tasting popcorn. And, I feel like that’s what I got. Using the Whirley Pop, with a very small amount of oil, I’ve had great results. I was concerned by some of the reviews stating they were seeing a substantial number of unpopped kernels. This hasn’t been my experience to-date. I’d say the pop-rate is on par or better than any other variety of corn I’ve tried.
As for taste, it tastes like what you’d think “plain” popcorn should taste like. Light, fluffy, and very good. I think, perhaps, a lot of folks associate “natural” popcorn with air-popped popcorn, and I don’t know that that’s a fair comparison. Air-popped popcorn has always tasted sort of…rubbery, to me. Using the Whirly-pop, you still get that great popcorn “CRUNCH”, but without the extra fat, salt, and who know’s what is added to microwave popcorns.
Perhaps that’s the beauty of Arrowhead Mills popcorn. All natural out of the box. The sky is the limit when it comes to “fancying” it up. Want butter, and salt? No problem! Prefer your popcorn plain? Easy as pie. The point is, you are in total control of what, if anything, is added to your popcorn. As someone who likes to occasionally indulge in some *real* butter on my popcorn, this is a nice change of pace as compared to the sickly “butter” that many big-name manufactures use.
Give this stuff a try. For the money, I think it’s a good, healthy choice.
The best popcorn ever!
large pops and fresh
Popcorn as it should be- free of Frankenfood and pops nicely
I have been using Arrowhead Mills products since the late 1980s (and did not know until now that they were purchased by Hain) but this product was new to me. I was pleasantly surprised at how much better it is than the standard fare. When popped in a hot air popper:
1) The kernels are large, fluffy, crunchy
2) They didn’t explode all over my kitchen floor like the others I’ve tried
3) Out of two ounces of kernels I had only a few unpopped kernels.
I’m very satisfied and highly recommend this popcorn for good eating and peace of mind if you want to avoid GMOs.
Organic, which is a great big plus for me, and bears the USDA seal, so it is also GMO free. Doesn’t pop as large as some, but there are very few un-popped kernels.
The only negative at all for me is that the taste is slightly bland.
Well worth a try. I’ll be buying more.
Non-GMO yummy goodness!
Great, fresh popcorn!
I checked the expiry date immediately upon receipt–the six bags had dates for March of next year, which was acceptable to me–and made a quick batch. It produced large, fluffy popcorn, which immediately disappeared!
Highly recommended if you can consume a bag in approximately a week to ten days. After that, like most popping corn exposed to air, this brand tends to produced a lesser volume of popcorn.
