Joe & Seph’s Gourmet Popcorn Advent Calendar

RRP: £25

Where to buy: www.joeandsephs.co.uk/gifts/gourmet-popcorn-advent-calendar

Range of offering: There are 24 snack-sized bags of artisan popcorn in this advent calendar. Caramel features quite a lot, which is a great choice for Christmas/Winter, however a couple of the flavours are repeated or quite similar. We would have loved to see more Christmas flavours like Mince Pie, Mint Chocolate and Brandy Butter.

Taste and Quality: Like all of their products, Joe and Seph’s air-popped technique produces a light popcorn, which is a healthier cooking method than traditional popcorn. They can do no wrong taste-wise in our eyes – each flavour is unique, absolutely delicious and very moreish.

Value for money: Yes this advent calendar is value for money – it’s a great way to try out a wide range of their products without having to buy the individual packs. Plus who doesn’t want to eat popcorn every day!

Would you buy it? Yes we would, it’s a nice treat and different from traditional chocolate advent calendars. The size of the packets aren’t too big so they’re perfect to enjoy one a day.
