Okay, I’ll fess up; it was a Quidco deal that got me onto Joe & Sephs.
What I got was a lot of popcorn! A legion of popcorn.
- Prosecco popcorn (gourmet)
- Gin and tonic popcorn
- Banoffee pie popcorn
- Salted caramel popcorn
- White chocolate and vanilla bean popcorn
I don’t have a favourite, as it was all good, but my favourite was salted caramel and white chocolate. You get the idea. These are all good enough to be favourites.
What I did was treat my single self to a series of Friday movie nights. It didn’t matter what movie I watched on the sofa, and sometimes they were b-movie blunders from Rakuten TV. It didn’t matter. It was all for the popcorn.
It also stopped me from eating it all in a single weekend. And I could have had!
Here’s a negative; I’m glad I didn’t have to share. There’s probably enough for two people in each packet, but they wouldn’t be generous portions.
The portion suggestions disagree with me completely. These packets suggest there’s enough for three or four helpings of banged grain deliciousness. It’s all lies.
There’s no doubt about it. These are posh. They’re decadent in both the bad way and the good way. You’d have regrets if your willpower failed and you wolfed through a bundle purchase, and friends will thank you for buying some as a gift.
In fact, as we’re urged to think about Christmas super early, I’m doing the thing of trying to work out what expiry dates on posh popcorn might be and coordinating that with orders and dispatching back out to non-diabetic friends in the post.
Joe & Seph want you to get friends introduced to this popcorn evolution, and there’s a referral program and a loyalty program. Either get people to buy their own, or buy for them, and you’ll be rewarded.
Yes, more than chemically enhanced popcorn. Joe & Seph’s collection honestly feels different.
It feels better.
Perhaps I’m too used to cheapo cinema popcorn. Sorry, Cineworld. I really could taste the difference.
The fact that some of the purchases were half-shelled with chocolate bubbles made spotting the taste differences easy. However, even the more subtle enhancements came across clearly.
It’s £4 for a standard pack (£40 for a catering one! — dangerous) or for a smaller posh pack. I’m sure this is a good price point for the company.
Delivery is free at £12. So, like me, you’ll end up with 3+ packets which are small enough to eat in one single home cinema viewing. There’s enough per pack, but these are not cinema buckets of popcorn.
I just wish they could be better for you. Is skinny popcorn a thing yet?
Happy to recommend it, but only as a treat.
