I am super excited to be sharing several new flavors from Just Pop In with you! They’ve asked me to taste test and share my thoughts with you. What, try out popcorn, you say? Enjoy my favorite snack in a variety of flavors, you say? Of course!
Just Pop In is a gourmet popcorn company in Indianapolis that really strives to integrate themselves into the community by working with local businesses, festivals, and other food-related partners to create unique flavors with their popcorn. I sampled their Bloody Mary popcorn made with Hoosier Momma, a local company that offers Bloody Mary mix, and then 6 other flavors created exclusively for the Omni Severin Hotel. They recently celebrated 100 years of history in Indianapolis and I was honored to be a VIP at their party. I’ve been a huge fan of the hotel and specifically Severin Bar, the sports lounge within the hotel that serves Indiana draft beer, pre-prohibition style cocktails and bar food sourced from local farmers. Sounds like the perfect combination, right?
Now, as I like to say, onto the food.
Hoosier Momma (Bloody Mary) – An original JPI mix including a tomato base, worcestershire, horseradish, citrus sea salts and more
This has heat and great tomato flavor that’s not too overpowering. Popcorn shouldn’t make you feel like your eating a vegetable and this does not. Do I need to repeat myself in that I hate tomatoes? Well, sort of. I love ketchup with all of my heart. I kinda thought this popcorn would taste like V-8 but it doesn’t. I don’t even drink Bloody Mary’s but I like this! Kudos for Just Pop In for getting me to like this popcorn.
The rest are the Omni Severin exclusive flavors!
