Popz and perhapz burnz. Review with images

AdvantagesNo mess; tastes great when made correctly.

DisadvantagesEasy to burn; lots of unpopped kernels.

"...supermarket I spotted boxes of Popz microwave popcorn in amongst the nuts and crisps. ***Variety/Price*** Each box contains three 100g bags of popcorn and there are four flavours to choose from: salted, butter, sweet and banana toffee. Each box costs £1.79, quite reasonable compared to the cost at the pictures, quite dear compared to a bag of kernels. With the deftest slight of hand a box of buttered found itself hidden behind the cornflakes. Each ..." Read review

Pop in for a treat

AdvantagesQuick, effortless, no mess

DisadvantagesBurn easily

"...guessed it - it was Popz microwave popcorn! Having just started a new relationship at the time, I found myself staying in a lot and watching DVD's with the girlfriend. I always liked munching on popcorn during movies but the various methods I used over the years all meant either making a lot of mess or taking a long time to make. The great thing about Popz microwave popcorn is that it is the least messy method of making popcorn I've come across. ..." Read review

Two Minute Popcorn

AdvantagesTasty, reasonably priced, quick to make, available in most supermarkets

DisadvantagesFairly high in fat, those little bits that get stuck in your teeth

"...trip, and when I spotted Popz Microwave Popcorn at 2 boxes for £1 in Waitrose it had to go in my trolley! Popz is probably the original microwave popcorn - indeed it seems to have been around for years. Packaged in cardboard boxes containing 3 folded microwavable bags, Popz is easily spotted on the supermarket shelf due to the bright blue, orange and yellow graphics. Popz also seems to be an international product as it's clearly labelled as made ..." Read review

Is it Possible to Live Solely on Popcorn?

AdvantagesProbably the greatest food EVER!

DisadvantagesAfter microwaving the bag and its contents is hotter than the sun.

"...to my horror all the Popz was sold out. But before you reach for the tissues, it was ok because, after a great deal of super sleuthing (again this is porbably a slight exageration as I merely looked in the next aisle) I managed to find some! Popz comes in a variety of different flavours, sweet salted and butter. But to be honest butter is the only way to go. The standard boxes contain 3 packets of Popz popcorn, which would probably relate to ..." Read review

Homemade Popcorn at the touch of a button Review with images

AdvantagesYummy (When made correctly), lots of flavours, low calorie snack

DisadvantagesQuality can vary between packs

"... **PRICE & FLAVOURS** You can get Popz popcorn at all the large supermarkets [I know for a fact that they are available at your local Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury, Budgens, Morrisons, Waitrose] The flavours I have come across are 1. Ready Salted 2. Butter- Same saltiness as ready salted but a lot more moist and for some reason does NOT contain more calories than the ready salted variety?!? 3. Sweet- not as good as the type you get in cinemas but adequate. 4. ..." Read review

pop n pop

Advantageslove the smell of fresh popcorn

Disadvantagescant eat a whole packet alone

"This is a box of three packets of ready to pop popcorn. Each packet is 100g enough to make a large bowl of popcorn. This also available in salted, sweet ,banana toffee and the forementioned butter. I havent tried the banana toffee but the kids like the sweet which I find a bit sickly myself. A box of three packets costs about £1.80 and I normally get mine from tesco and they have the salted and butter in all the time the others not always available. First ..." Read review

Pop-alicious!

AdvantagesMelt in the mouth, delicious buttery corn!

DisadvantagesSome kernals don't pop! Annoying.

"...food! My favourite snack is POPZ microwave popcorn, it is easy to make, tastes and smells delicious, and to top it all off, there is so much of it! The cost, £1.79 may look expensive, but for such delicious butteryness, it is a bargain! Everytime i go to the supermarket, i make sure to buy myself a pack of three POPZ microwave popcorn sachets and a large bag of caster sugar. I get home, open up the packet, and put it in the microwave, type ..." Read review

Get poppin'!

AdvantagesQuick, easy, cheap

DisadvantagesUnpopped kernels, sickly after a while

"We bought this stuff for a party and it was great! The joy of being able to make it yourself makes it much better than the sticky, toffee popcorn you get from other brands. A great buy. strongly recommended. _________ *Positives* ---------------- + As I mentioned, the fact that you can microwave this stuff yourself makes it good fun, it was great fun at my party when we all sat there watching the bag rise in the microwave. + The taste is ..."

That popping feeling?!

AdvantagesQuick and easy to prepare,

DisadvantagesLots of unpopped kernals, taste, not cheap!

"...my friends they all demanded Popz popcorn, so after a short excursion to the local sommerfeld and with £4 less in the wallet we ventured home towards the microwave. The instructions seemed fairly simple to follow and after placing the bag in the microwave and setting it for about 3 minutes we all waited eagerly..... after the time was up and the popping ceased to the 2 seconds as advised on the packet, we opened the microwave to find a steam filled ..."

Yum yum in my tum tum

AdvantagesYummy!

DisadvantagesSome bits not covered in butter

"FLAVOUR / TASTE: This is one of the best microwave popcorns I have tasted, second only to Butterkist. This flavour, butter, is my personal favourite, although the salted flavour is also nice. The butter melts over the popcorn giving a generally even coating, although some pieces can be left uncovered. I would just warn you to wait a while before eating it because it can burn your tongue! EASE OF PREPARATION: the first time I made this I burnt it, ..." Read review

"...varities of microwave popcorn and popz is my favourite. I find it to have enough flavour without being overpowering. It comes in a box with three 100g packets priced at €1.76 available in different flavours including ready salted, buttered and lo-fat. ................ COOKING INSTRUCTIONS The instructions are written very small and so may be hard for some people to read but they are in 11 different languages! Remove the outer plastic and place ..." Read review
