I Tried Opopop’s Flavor Wrapped Popcorn. Here’s What I Thought
I'm a fan of popcorn. It's been my go-to snack, comfort food, and the one thing I don't burn in the kitchen.
Lately, I've been getting bored with the classic microwave popcorn so a friend, and fellow popcorn lover, told me to check out Opopop. My friend insisted this was the next evolution in popcorn (yes, evolution) so I decided to look into Opopop a bit more.
They make microwavable pre-flavored popcorn… I was skeptical. In the past, the only flavored popcorns I tried always came off tasting fake or extremely sugary.
It turns out Opopop is different from the other flavored brands out there because of their Flavor Wrapped™ Popcorn Kernels. Each kernel is individually wrapped in the flavor seasoning, so once you pop it the taste is evenly distributed and super fresh.

Opopop comes in 6 flavors - Vanilla Cake Pop, Cinnalicious, Maui Heat, Chedapeño, Fancy Butter, and Salty Umami. I didn't know what to try first but for $40, I got the Discovery Kit. It contains a pouch of each flavor available that's good for 1 family-sized serving. Also, something really nice about Opopop, is they throw in a Test Launch pouch of their Lightly Salted flavor so you can test your microwave's cook time before trying the other flavors. Finally, the $40 kit came with a silicone popper and lid too.
When my box arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. The packaging was so neat and even included ice packs to make sure the kernels stayed flavor-wrapped throughout the shipping process. I even loved the popper which was fun, bright yellow, and BPA-free.
I started with the Chedapeño - the cooking process was easy, just pour the kernels into the popper and microwave it. I got to enjoy my popcorn right from the popper (no extra bowls needed!) and then simply put the popper in the dishwasher. And I loved the taste - cheesy with a kick thanks to the jalapeño. I was finally getting all the flavor I wanted with a clean and easy approach to tasty popcorn.
I made my way through all the flavors in a couple of weeks and not a single pack disappointed me. In fact, they were all amazing, especially compared to what I'm used to getting from microwave popcorn.
Now that I know my favorites, I can't wait to order more. They've got Choose Your Own Adventure packs so I can choose 3 flavors. Each bag costs $15 but with 6 family-sized servings per bag, that's just $2.50 a serving. Honestly, between the amazing taste, high-quality, and seamless popping process Opopopis totally worth it.
I can't imagine going back to regular, cheap microwave popcorn knowing that these flavor-wrapped kernels are out there. Plus, with Opopop I can subscribe to restock every month and save 10% on my order - popcorn is always a must-have in my house.
There's no more running to the store to get unevenly buttered bags of microwave popcorn, and I couldn't be happier. My snacking is so much simpler with Opopop and the best part is not only the better taste but the even better quality. Opopopis gluten-free, non-GMO, and there's no awful burnt or chemical-y aftertaste.
Check out Opopop and take this snack favorite to the next level.
