Today while running errands I stopped at a grocery store we have locally called Martin’s, (they’re owned by Giant Foods, I believe.)
At the self-checkout I glanced at the impulse items and saw the word “Valentina” but this confused me since I knew I was staring at a bag of popcorn. That’s when I realized, it was Valentina-flavored popcorn.
That’s right. Act II Valentina (Salsa Picante Style) popcorn. I grabbed two bags and tried not to get too excited. I love Valentina but I assumed they would just put some regular chili powder on the popcorn, (and I already put jalapeño powder on my popcorn, so this wouldn’t impress me.)
When I finally got home, I couldn’t wait to check it out.
First you pop the popcorn as usual. When it comes out of the bag, it already has an orange color, but when I tasted it, it tasted plain – You need to add the packet of Valentina-flavored powder that comes with it.
Thankfully, it does not taste like regular chili powder – it really tastes like Valentina. Your fingers will turn reddish-orange, pero vale la pena. Good luck finding it at a store near you!
Disclosure: I purchased the product with my own dinerito. All opinions are my own.
