479 Popcorn Review

Gucci, Prada, Coach, 479 Popcorn


It wasn't the SAT, I was listing designer brands.

In case you haven't heard 479 is designer when it comes to popcorn.

479 refers to the number of degrees for popping the perfect corn.  They have a light and airy popcorn that can not be rivaled easily (no Redenbacher is even close).

I had the pleasure of receiving a sampler box from 479 to try out (titled "The Sweet Tooth").

The box came with 5 flavors: 

Fleur de Sel Caramel
Ginger Sesame Caramel
Chipotle Caramel and Almonds
Black Truffle and White Cheddar
Vietnamese Cinnamon Sugar

Right off the bat I will tell you I did not like the black truffle and white cheddar.  I suppose I do not have a sophisticated enough palate but I do not enjoy the truffle oil.

The other flavors however were delicious and loved by all members of the family.

Each child claimed a box for themselves after I had my taste of each.

My favorite, fleur de sel caramel (I love that it rhymes) was delicious.  The buttery caramel and light flaky salt was a great combination.  My 9 year old, Owen, took this one.

Ginger sesame has a nice zing to it with delicious sweet caramel.  My 4 year old, Andrew, had this one.

Chipotle caramel and almond was Caroline's favorite.  This really shocked me that a 2 year old would like something spicy (and believe me it had a nice kick to it).

This left the box of Vietnamese cinnamon sugar for me...and I could not have been more happy.  I nice light, not overly sweet, snack.

These boxes are perfect for gifts OR just to have for yourself when you want to give yourself something nice (and really aren't we all worth it).

There are other packs to choose from (The Purist, The Foodie, and The Globetrotter) as well as pop your own kits.

Oh and did I mention that it is organic?  It is!

479 provides the best ingredients and only puts the best out there.

Do you have a favorite flavor of popcorn?

I hope you have an enjoyable Monday!


  1. Oh my! I've never seen these popcorns before but will be hunting them down now. The truffle one sounds amazing!

  2. I made a cinnamon bun popcorn a couple weeks ago that I thought was just the cats meow, but I am curious to try this popcorn you shared with us today! I will have to try this just to say I did. :)

  3. You're so lucky getting all these delicious goodies to test! This one really does look like the Rolls Royce of the popcorn world! The flavours sound lush & I luv the packaging. Shame we can't get it over here... I'd luv 2 try some! x

  4. Sounds delicious! I am a fan of popcorn...and my favorite is the very unhealthy movie popcorn! The fleur de sel sounds amazing, tho!

  5. I've only tried buttered & caramel popcorns. Didn't know there're so many flavours. Cool!
