The Good: Exceptionally good ingredients, Good corporate philosophy, No unpopped kernels!
The Bad: Comparatively expensive,Comparatively short shelf life, Bland flavor
The Basics: Angie's Boom Chicka Pop Sea Salt Popcorn is all right for its production and corporate ethics, but disappointing as a snack.
One of the things I love about the food box delivery service my wife occasionally subscribes to for me is that I get to try foods that I would not ordinarily try. The last box she bought me included bags of Angie's Boom Chicka Pop Sea Salt Popcorn. I had seen Angie's Boom Chicka Pop Popcorn at my local discount store recently, but had not tried any before now. Sea Salt seemed like a fine flavor to me, despite the fact that I tend to love more flavorful products than simply "salt" flavored popcorn.
Unfortunately, while I was thrilled to be able to try Angie's Boom Chicka Pop Sea Salt Popcorn, it was not a particularly interesting snack food.

The Boom Chicka Pop Sea Salt Popcorn from Angie's comes in a .6 oz. bag. Inside the bag, the popcorn is exactly what one might expect of popcorn. It is popped, light and fluffy and lightly salted.
