At first glance, popcorn may not seem like the healthiest of snacks. However, Eureka’s Original is something a little different. Made by snack lovers, for snack lovers, Eureka popcorn was designed as the perfect snack for all the family.
Eureka’s Original popcorn is created by a Malaysian company who only use special non-GMO popcorn kernels called Mushroom Popcorn. This popcorn variety ‘pops’ into a round-shaped ball rather than the usual ‘butterfly’-shape which regular popcorn tend to look like after being heated up. This unique mushroom shape is ideal for making gourmet popcorn because the sugar or butter can be coated more easily and evenly around it. Mushroom popcorn is also tastier and crunchier compared to regular popcorn. Best of all, unlike regular movie popcorn, these perfectly-shaped pieces don’t have the remnant of the kernel or husk in it. No more spitting out the irritating and inconvenient husks!
If you’re keen on keeping your family healthy, then you’ll be glad to know that these popcorns are non-GMO and don’t contain any preservatives or transfat. To make it more convenient to store, these freshly-made popcorns are also packed in vacuum-packs or paper canisters which can last for 2 months to 12 months (depending on the type of packaging).
However, what makes Eureka’s popcorn stand out from the crowd is the sheer amount of variety they have when it comes to flavors. For the health conscious, stick to their Seaweed and Original sea salt popcorn which are made entirely out of natural ingredients. Those who want to indulge can try out their Butter Caramel or Dark Chocolate flavors, while those who’re interested in experimenting can look into all kinds of wacky flavors such as Curry, Cheese, and even Wasabi!
