You’ve heard of ‘breakfast for dinner’, but let me do you two better—dinner and dessert… for a snack. Local popcorn brand The Kettle Gourmet just dropped two regional flavours, inspired by local foods most Singaporeans grew up with.
Joining The Kettle Gourmet’s repertoire of unique and innovative flavours are Pulut Hitam and Fish Head Curry (S$5+).
If you’re someone who loves a savoury snack, the Fish Head Curry flavour will be your go-to. You can expect the same aromatic notes of curry and spices but in the form of crunchy, bite-sized popcorn. This flavour packs a solid punch and manages to encapsulate the robust notes of curry without being too spicy and overwhelming. It’s addictive and easy to devour without making a mess. The Kettle Gourmet has found the perfect cure for dreary afternoon slumps, if I do say so myself.
I’ll admit that I was a little sceptical of the Pulut Hitam flavour at first, but this left me pleasantly surprised. Lightly sweet, with a distinct aroma of coconut milk, this purple snack had me reaching for it the whole day. The textural contrast between pulut hitam and pulut hitam-flavoured popcorn does take some getting used to—a testament to just how well The Kettle Gourmet managed to recreate the popular dessert in popcorn form.
If you’re planning a stay-home movie night and want to load up on all the snacks, The Kettle Gourmet has other flavours inspired by popular Singaporean fare—take your pick from Nasi Lemak (S$5+), Chilli Crab(S$5+), or even Kaya Butter Toast (S$5+).
The Kettle Gourmet also offers a bundle of Assorted Singles (S$30) — there are six different flavours for those who can’t decide on which one they’re the most excited to try. If you’re committed to that one flavour you’ve tried and fell head over heels in love with, you can opt for the 6 Pack Set (S$30) for maximum satisfaction feasting.
Of course, if snacks are counted as a whole meal in your family (just like mine), get your hands on the Lockdown 2.0 Family Care Package (S$45), with a variety of popcorn that’s perfect for a movie marathon with your siblings over the weekend.
