I'm sure I don't need to remind you of my affinity for Little Lad's Herbal Corn, but sometimes I'm just not near Lad's or Whole Foods when I'm in the mood for some tasty, popped corn. Enter Trader Joe's popcorn with herbs & spices. A local vegan-in-the-know alerted me to the existence of this pseudo herbal corn and I had to give it a try.
The taste is similar, but not at all identical. While the prevalent taste in herbal corn is nutritional yeast, popcorn with herbs & spices specifies only "dried yeast." And even though the yellow bits look awfully familiar- they are clearly not in as much abundance as in herbal corn. Instead of supporting, dill is the prominent flavor in popcorn with herbs & spices.
The other significant difference is in the crunch. For some reason, I found TJ's offering to be considerably crisper than Lad's. I won't say that made it better or worse, but it was appreciated.
