My Addiction to Chef's Tony's Gourmet Popcorn

Our family has always loved popcorn.  We always munch on popcorn whenever we watch movies.  Popcorn is also my choice of snack whenever I'm studying.  One of our favorites is Chef Tony's Gourmet Popcorn.  

Chef Tony's Gourmet Popcorn was first introduced to me by Kurt because the Original Receipe (caramel) was his mom's favorite.  You can easily purchase  Chef Tony's Gourmet Popcorn in various malls and mini outlets.   
Chef Tony's Gourmet Popcorn
Chef Tony's Gourmet Popcorn is the first Chicago style popcorn I've tried.  It is locally made.  I like that Chef Tony's Gourmet Popcorn are packed in resealable containers so that you can eat at small amount anytime you wish and place it in the fridge.  You can expect that its still crunchy, the next time you open the lid.  

Original Recipe (125 php)
Chef Tony's Gourmet Popcorn Original Recipe is simply caramel.  What I like about the Original recipe is that it is not too sweet.  The large round popcorn bits are thinly coated by caramel making it perfectly crispy and tasty at the same time.

White Chocolate Parmesan (125 php)
Chef Tony's Gourmet Popcorn White Chocolate Parmesan is also one of my personal favorites.  I like the way the salty parmesan cheese flavor is contrasted by the smooth sweet white chocolate.  I am impressed at how the white chocolate coats the popcorn and yet still maintains its crunchiness.  Since this is not as sweet as the Original Recipe, this can be quite addictive to munch on.

White Country Cheddar (125 php)
Chef Tony's Gourmet Popcorn White Country Cheddar is popcorn powdered with rich tasty light white cheddar.  This is similar to the White Chocolate Parmesan but lighter because it doesn't have a milky coating.  Thus, it is more addictive because you'd want to savor more of that mild cheesy tangy taste.  I ain't kidding when I tell you that once I get a hold of this, no one can stop me from infinitely chomping every bit of this!

Chocolate Mallows (125 php)
Chef Tony's Gourmet Popcorn Chocolate Mallows is a special seasonal flavor. Ironically, despite being the most expensive Chef Tony's Gourmet Popcorn variant because of its small cup size, it is the worst flavor I have ever encountered.  The sugary sweet chocolate coating with the melted mallows makes it too sweet and less crunchy to eat.  No one wanted to eat this so I had a difficult time to finish this all by myself.  I definitely don't recommend this even for kids!

How about you?  What are your Chef Tony's Gourmet Popcorn favorites?  Perhaps, you can recommend our next flavor to try!  =)

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Chef Tony's Gourmet Popcorn has consistently produced quality popcorn. They make popcorn a unique and fun experience.  There are a lot of good variants but there are also those which are not recommendable.  Despite being gourmet, their price is very reasonable.  In fact, I've noticed that their price range is almost the same as the price for ordinary popcorn sold at special events like when we watched Uncle Sam's Flying Circus.
