Tropical Shores Gourmet Popcorn Co. located in Sarasota, Florida sent me a box of four flavors — Salted Caramel, Tuxedo, Pirate’s Gold, and Hurricane.
I began with the Salted Caramel flavor. It was pretty good and I had a hard time putting it down. I almost ate the entire bag. I really enjoyed the finishing flavor of salt on the middle of my tongue. The next flavor I tried was Pirate’s Gold — caramel popcorn flavored with a mixture of cheddar and white cheddar cheeses. It was delicious! The combination of flavors was very addicting. Next up was the Tuxedo flavor — caramel popcorn drizzled with dark and white chocolate. I just didn’t like this flavor that much. It could have been a whole lot tastier if better chocolate was used. The last flavor I tried was Hurricane (pictured here on the left) — a mixture of seven candy coated popcorn flavors: Blue Raspberry, Strawberry, Green Apple, Watermelon, Grape, Banana and Orange. Kids may like this flavor because of all the different colors and flavors, but I just didn’t like the artificial flavoring. These flavors tasted a lot like Jolly Rancher hard candies, especially the watermelon flavor. It can be very costly to create a mixture of flavors and use all natural ingredients, but that’s what makes the best popcorn flavors.
Tropical Shores has a good Salted Caramel flavored popcorn and I would also suggest the Pirate’s Gold flavor to anyone who likes cheesy caramel popcorn.
Thanks and Keep on Poppin’
