For this Kernel Seasons review, my crew tried Kernel Season’s in nacho cheddar, white cheddar, kettle corn and ranch flavors. The product comes in a wide variety of other flavors, including garlic parmesan, buffalo wing, pizza, cheesy jalapeño, caramel, milk chocolate caramel and bacon cheddar.
You may have seen tiny Kernel Season’s containers at movie theaters as an add-on to buckets of popcorn. However, you can also pick up several flavors of Kernel Season’s at Walmart and many grocery stores for about $2 to $4 per 2.85-ounce bottle. Amazon has a pretty good selection of Kernel Season’s flavors as well.
Making your own microwave popcorn at home is a breeze with this recipe. Then, you simply shake on the Kernel Season’s and enjoy.
Kids love shaking on the Kernel Season’s, but you’ll want to supervise so that they don’t dispense half the bottle. Most flavors seem to contain about 5 calories per serving, so even if you use the equivalent of several servings, you’re not adding a significant amount of extra calories.
My testers enjoyed all of the flavors we tried, especially the kettle corn and white cheddar. I’ve always been partial to kettle corn flavoring myself.
If you make popcorn yourself and use Kernel Season’s, you can skip buying microwave popcorn or bags of flavored gourmet popcorn for snacks or for your next family movie night. The product’s variety of yummy flavors offers a tasty alternative to plain old buttered popcorn, and they also taste great on grilled burgers, pasta, steamed veggies and baked potatoes. If your kids need encouragement to eat their vegetables, try shaking on some Kernel Season’s in one of the cheesy flavors. The garlic parmesan would taste terrific on green beans, for example.
Pick up a bag of regular popcorn, some paper lunch bags and a couple of Kernel Season’s bottles next time you grocery shop, and you’ll have yummy snacks for weeks to come.
