Caramel Ginger Popcorn

July 05, 2017 in Category: What's New

Our Product Developers travel the world, near and far, in search of unique products at excellent values—we like to think of them as our liaisons to fabulous new food finds, for minimal fare. The latest, tasty result of that tireless commitment to finding the newest nosh on the block is Trader Joe’s Caramel Ginger Popcorn. Depending on where you are, it could be from near or far— but to be exact, it’s from Waukegan, Illinois.

Caramel Ginger Popcorn starts with a base of Midwest-grown, mushroom kernel corn. When heated, this variety of corn pops into a sturdy orb shape with tiny surface crags. These crags hold onto just the right amount of sea salt and caramelized coating, which keeps the popcorn crunchy from the first bite to the bottom of the bag.

The heat of crystallized ginger pieces that are added to the caramel coating plays perfectly with the sweet-salty, lightly caramelized corn. The end result is a distinctly crunchy, oh-so-craveable snack, with delicate, warm ginger flavor. Yum.

Give Caramel Ginger Popcorn the starring role in a homemade snack mix with savory nuts, or simply enjoy it on its own, right out of the bag—its sweet-salty profile means multiple handfuls are in order here. Spice up movie night, or bring a bag to your next picnic or beach trip. You may need an extra bag for sharing purposes—don’t say we didn’t warn you!

We’re selling seven-ounce bags of Trader Joe’s Caramel Ginger Popcorn for $2.99, but only during the heat of the summer months. You’ll find them near our other salty snacks.
