I didn’t think smaller popcorn was something I’d necessarily want, but the pieces are a little easier to chew and there’s a little less air in each bite, which amps up the flavor a little. Very interesting! In addition to traditional flavors like salted, butter or naked, there’s truffle sea salt, white cheddar and sweet & salty. You might have to try them all.” An image of the branded The Little Kernel Pink Himalayan Salt packaging was included, as well as a link to The Little Kernel website.
