I personally love diving into a bowl of un-popped kernels, the problem is that due to Orville Redenbacher's hybridization of popcorn, today's popcorn has less un-popped kernels. Well a few clever folks from Seattle have taken it upon themselves and discovered a way to create fully cooked un-popped popcorn kernels.
Their creation 'Halfpops' currently comes in two flavours (Natural Butter & Pure Ocean Salt, and Natural Aged White Cheddar) with a possible third flavour coming out soon. Now Halfpops have been available for almost a year now, and is easily found at most supermarkets, that is if you're supermarket is south of the 49th parallel. Yeah, that's right, those of us living north of the 49th parallel have been forced to go without these savoury snacks. Now you would think the fraternal bond of living in the Pacific Northwest would warrant us (Vancouverites) some kind of special treatment, I mean with free trade and all, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
Maybe we should start an email campaign, who's with me?
