If there is one food we are obsessing over currently, it's pickles. Whether it is in the form of sweet and fluffy cotton candy, frozen as pops, or even an ingredient in ice cream, fermented cucumbers are taking the food world by storm and it doesn't seem to be stopping any time soon. Trader Joe's pickle popcorn is a testament to this, and you have to try a handful to believe how delicious this snack really is.
What is Trader Joe's Popcorn in a Pickle?
While Trader Joe's Popcorn in a Pickle was first introduced back in 2015, it took us until today to realize such a thing existed. The savory snack features air-popped mushroom popcorn (don't worry, the term "mushroom" just describes the shape) flavored with dill oil, citric acid, and other natural flavors. There are no actual pickles in this dill pickle popcorn, but rather the popcorn packs a punch of pickle flavor you can't help but love.
Surprise! This Popcorn is Healthy
When it comes to healthy snacks, popcorn ranks higher than potato chips and other snack foods like cookies and crackers. According to the packaging, Popcorn in a Pickle is only 150 calories for a 2-cup serving. However, if you are keeping an eye on your sodium intake, you might want to limit yourself to a smaller helping. This popcorn clocks in at 290mg per serving, which is about 8% of your daily percentage value.
