My Review


I am trying to make a transition to having my family eat healthier even when it comes to snack items. So, when I heard about the opportunity to review JOLLY TIME Popcorn I was more than thrilled. The popcorn even came with the cutest little heart shaped bowl that you can see in the picture which made it perfect for family movie night. After the box arrived I was looking forward to trying out JOLLY TIME Popcorn. So, I decided to test it out while my boys took a nap and I was watching an episode of Pretty Little Liars. The popcorn tasted well in the beginning. However, when it got to the bottom of the bag it started to taste a little too salty for my liking. I will purchase this brand of popcorn in the future. However, I just know when it gets to the bottom I need to stop there or it could have just been the individual bag that I tried that was like that. Other than the salty taste at the end though I have no complaints at all about JOLLY TIME Popcorn.
