So recently I was contacted by the Cob Popcorn PR Team if I wanted to try their new products and I said yes. Not knowing much about the company or their products aside from the obvious . I was pleasantly surprised with the products . Don’t let the name fool you. Cob don’t just do popcorn and honestly these are some of the best pre packaged snacks I have had in a long time.
Cob Popcorn recently launched a number of new products in the Australian Market and I think these are underrated products that people need to know about .
The first products are the Hip Chips which lives up to the name . These aren’t just any old favours and not just targeted at hipsters despite the homage. Hip Chips are for everyone and is a secret waiting to be discovered. Best of all they are gluten free and an amazing alternative to the humble potato chip.
These are quiet frankly delicious and addicting . I could of easily eaten a bag in one day if I didn’t’ restrain myself and shared them. These are too good not to keep to yourself really. They are light but have the crunch of a traditional chip
Available in a 90g size, Hip Chips are priced at $3.45 (RRP) and come in four flavours.
Tomato, Cheese and Olive- Probably would have been my favourite if I could I could handle more Tomato. OH to be intolerant . This combination was amazing and something you need to seek out.
Sweet Chili and Sour Cream – not over powering sweet . This was the perfect balance of sweet and savoury and I found it to satisfy my tastebuds.
Salt of the Sea was the least favourite out the chips in terms of taste. It didn’t’ really have the salt favour I have come to expect when I eat this favour. This is great base though if you want to eat them with a dip or even substitute say for papadam
Smokey Chipotle And Beetroot was my favourite . I loved the combination of flavours and the sensations your taste buds had after eating one chip. I was already love those two favours individually so it was no brainier this was going to be a winner with me.
Available in a 175g size and priced at $4.75 (RRP)
This was the first to go and no surprise. This was a genius marketing concept . Savoury and Sweet all in one bag was going to be a winner for me. Like hip chips it is gluten free and nothing artifical. It catered to my sweet and savoury tastebuds all in one go . The caramel popcorn was just right. Not overly sweet and had a nice crunch. The cheese was subtle favour and I wished it was stronger for me personally as I love cheese.
Now you probably wondering where you can get these now. Lucky for us they are easy to find .
Tomato, Cheese and Olive and Sweet Chili and Sour Cream available at 7-Eleven stores. All flavours of Hips and Chicago Mix are available independent grocers and specialty retailers.
As always whilst I may of been given free samples. All thoughts and opinions are mine and haven’t been influenced by the PR Team in any way
