Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn is $3.99 a bag. And despite its deliciousness, let’s not forget that the main ingredient here is popcorn. It’s still a bit pricey, considering. But I’m willing to splurge every now and again. Also, I’m totally addicted to it. Here are the three flavors we’ve tried so far.

Romano and Pesto
This was my favorite, though Beta Wife chose the Asiago as her number one. The most complex of the three we sampled, I had expected it to be my least favorite. Pesto flavored foods have the capacity to turn out so very wrong. But this is so, so right. Cheesy, salty, tangy, and not too bad with a martini.
Asiago and Cracked Pepper
My least favorite, just because in comparison it lacked excitement. Still really quite tasty. Leave the bag within reach for too long and there’ll soon be no more popcorn.
I expected this to taste like another generic cheese popcorn. After all, most cheese popcorns all really taste the same, don’t they? But this one had a nice light flavor with a subtle smokiness that hits you after the salty taste. Much more complex in flavor than you’d expect.
