Last year, I was delighted to receive three taster bags of gourmet popcorn from connoisseurs Joe & Sephs. This week I have been sent four different flavour packs and a jar of caramel sauce. Let me begin!
If you are a popcorn lover do take a look at all the varieties they make and sell.
As their fabulous mouth watering website states:-
'Joe & Seph's are a family business who launched in 2010 with a mission to produce the best tasting popcorn in the world.
All of our popcorn is handmade in London, by a small team of pastry chefs.
We now have a range of over 40 flavours of gourmet popcorn, 6 varieties of caramel sauce and have won a total of 24 Great Taste Awards!'
So to evaluate the packs, I began with a savoury pack.

A VERY satisfied customer!
FRENCH GOATS CHEESE & MALABAR BLACK PEPPER - Great Taste Gold Award Winner
A popcorn made with these ingredients, how intriguing! I have never imagined that popcorn with cheese and pepper could mix, but this works a treat. The pepper comes through first followed by the creaminess of the cheese taking the edge off the sweetness of the popcorn. What a fabulous 'nibble' to offer to guests at a dinner party! Derek would have eaten the whole packet given the chance, but I found that a few kernals were sufficient as the flavours are quite powerful.

Derek loves this flavour too!
CARAMEL AND A HINT OF SEA SALT
This is the most popular variety sold to date and I can see why. Tasting the popcorn, the sea salt is prevalent, but then the the creamy sweetness kicks in resulting in a wonderful combination of sweet and savoury.
My son James takes a fancy to this popcorn!
This is worthy of its award!
CARAMEL & CRUNCHY PEANUT BUTTER - Great Taste Award Winner
One of my favourite teatime treats is banana and peanut butter on toast. When I first popped a kernal into my mouth, this is what I thought of! Creamy like the banana and butter that comes through on the toast, this is similar, but the caramel is much more pronounced after two or three mouthfuls. Delicious! As my son James starts to taste this variety, there is hardly any left for me!
Eagerly waiting to try!
This is fantastic!
SMOOTH COCONUT, CARAMEL & CINNAMON
I love anything with coconut in and I knew I would love this variety even before the bag was opened! Fabulous flavours, who would have thought that cinnamon and coconut with caramel would produce such a delicious taste. I made sure I kept the pack!!
Scrumptious Caramel Sauce!
Sauce warmed in microwave and drizzled over honeycomb dairy ice cream
Derek can't wait to start-result- FABULOUS!
SALTED CARAMEL SAUCE - Great Taste Award Winner
Oh my goodness, a caramel sauce made with fresh cream and sea salt. This won't last long!! I treated Derek and I to some deluxe ice cream, added some popcorn and poured over the sauce. 'WOW!' Talk about moorish.
Joe & Sephs are certainly up there with the best gourmet popcorn makers. Be aware though, the popcorn and the sauces are SO TASTY, you won't want to stop eating it!!
