Korean Popcorn is not like your typical US popcorn because it doesn’t taste like butter nor is it salty. It’s slightly sweet and has a subtle nutty flavor. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it packed in a box ready to be microwaved. Instead, you will find them at the Korean market in a small bag or even a pillow sized bag. You can’t help but not notice it because it just looks so tasty!
This particular brand that I tried was good. Don’t get me wrong though I do love the American buttery popcorn you get from the movie theaters that’s drenched in buttery goodness or the popcorn during the holidays which is coated with chocolate, cheese, or caramel.
Try serving Korean popcorn the next time you have friends over at your home as an appetizer. Just open up a bag, pour it onto a serving bowl and let them try it. It’s probably much healthier than your normal popcorn since it’s just lightly sweetened and there are no added oil.
