Did someone say cinnamon bun popcorn? Yes I did! Coney Island Classics Cinnamon Bun Kettle Corn to be precise.
Of the six flavours on offer from Coney Island Classics Cinnamon Bun is the one that excited me greatly. Cinnamon buns are one of my weaknesses. How can you not love a fluffy doughy bun ladened with cinnamon and cream cheese frosting? And if Coney Island can replicate this flavour in their popcorn they are true geniuses.
This kettle corn is made in small batches by hand using non-GMO corn and hasn’t a single nasty preservative in sight. Each flavour is gluten free, vegan and made in a completely nut free environment which is jolly good going if you ask me.
Is anyone else in agreement that in the UK currently we are on a real snack bore and nothing new and exciting seems to have hit the shelves in quite some time? Opening up this giant bag of popcorn it was a) filled pretty much to the top with none of this false economy business, and b) smelled inviting as hell.

Holy moly this is the stuff dreams are made of. The balance of flavour was perfect. Not too sweet or overpowered by cinnamon, this bag was incredibly addictive and required a lot, and I mean A LOT of willpower to put the bag down and step away. This wasn’t the type of popcorn where every popped kernel was littered with flavour, instead it was a mix of white plain and salty popcorn, and darker golden ones which was where the flavour bomb was. They had a great crispness to them and so far I haven’t come across a single un-popped kernel.
If you hadn’t already guessed these are a complete winner and I take my hat off to you Coney Island Classics. Combining an already glorious treat with popcorn is genius and it totally paid off. Definitely one to try and for those of you in the UK, Coney Island kettle corn is available to buy at American Fizz for £2.99, but be quick because this comes and goes incredibly quickly.
