Honestly ah, there’s nothing more addictive than popcorn when it comes to snacks. If you’re not convinced, name us one snack that is not only easy to eat, but is invitingly crunchy, has high satiety, is relatively healthy (if you don’t consume such large amounts lah!), and comes in a wide variety of flavours and seasonings. We’ll wait. Simply due to how tasty and unique popcorn is, we won’t judge anyone who has difficulty putting their bowl of popcorn down.
Most people may associate popcorn with flavours like caramel or honey, classic flavours that will never go wrong and be out of style. However, if you’re someone with adventurous taste buds, you might be interested in the new breed of popcorn flavours, all of which can cater to sweet or savoury tooths. To find out more about eccentric popcorn flavours around the world, continue reading, so don’t ever say bojio ah!
1. Ketchup Popcorn
We put ketchup in our burgers and as a dipping sauce for french fries, eggs, and many other foods. But popcorn? It sounds a bit weird lah. The thing is, ketchup popcorn is getting increasingly popular and mainstream, especially in the United States, as it apparently offers that nice tangy sweetness that’s sure to entice the taste buds and make you want more.
2. Chocolate Mint Popcorn
Moving across the world to South Korea, you have to live under a rock if you aren’t aware of South Koreans’ obsession with chocolate mint lately. From dipping sauce for chicken to jam for breakfast toast, it seems chocolate mint can be used for anything and everything. Now, that craze has spread to popcorn.
3. Everything Bagel Popcorn
Everything bagels may not yet strike a chord with Singaporeans, but it surely has with New Yorkers in particular. Everything bagels generally consist of a wide array of ingredients, like sesame seeds, poppy seeds, garlic flakes, online flakes, and caraway seeds. Combine these flavours together, and you will have the Everything Bagel popcorn.
4. Eggnog Popcorn
This might just be the perfect popcorn flavour for Christmas lah. Now you know what snack to serve your guests when you host a holiday party. Eggnog may not be everybody’s cup of tea, but for those who enjoy its cinnamon spices and creamy sweetness, this popcorn is right up your alley.
5. Espresso Popcorn
We can’t guarantee that espresso popcorn can replace your regular cup of joe for a pick-me-up, but we can assure you that coffee-infused popcorn will always stay on trend, considering its intense espresso kick is just what we need in a fast-paced world. Oh, and how can you tahan that seductively addictive taste?
6. Spicy Buffalo Wings Popcorn
Spicy, savoury, and tantalising. Spicy buffalo wings will remain in our hearts as a beloved American comfort food, but it’s time to set it aside for its popcorn version. At Uncle DiDi, we know exactly how to entice y’all, so we have made the Spicy Buffalo Wings popcorn available in our store. As we don’t want to exclude our vegetarian and vegan friends too, our popcorn is meat-free!
7. Red Velvet Cinnamon Popcorn
Some people may think of red velvet as just chocolate, but Uncle DiDi takes it up a notch by incorporating cinnamon into our popcorn creation. Don’t say we never warn you ah, but our red velvet cinnamon popcorn is made fresh each day, so the aroma of cinnamon is sure to linger on to make your mouth water.
8. Milo Dinosaur Popcorn
How can Uncle DiDi be called Singapore’s favourite uncle if we never include one of our local guilty pleasures – milo? You have seen milo-flavoured ice-creams, cookies, and even protein powders, so milo popcorn shouldn’t be too much of a surprise. As we wanted to make it more “gao” (rich in Hokkien), we added high-quality dark chocolate into the mix. Aiyah, you won’t regret it, so what you waiting for?
9. Sour Cream Popcorn
Sour cream potato chips? Been there, done there. But what about sour cream popcorn? That’s what we’re talking about. Uncle DiDi is coming at it again by thinking about our Singaporean nieces and nephews. We all know that “jelak” feeling when eating too much sour cream potato chips. As such, we have worked hard to make our popcorn so satisfying and delicious that you can continue eating without being sick of it.
10. Brown Sugar Popcorn
Remember that time when everyone in Singapore seemed to be hooked on brown sugar? While that trend may have gone down a little, brown sugar is still considered a staple in our local food scene – popular in bubble tea and other desserts. Let’s say you suddenly have a craving for brown sugar hor, you can come down to Uncle DiDi and get a taste of our popcorn.
Aside from some of the flavours mentioned above, Uncle DiDi has come up with other avant-garde, seasonal flavours in the past, such as chocolate cinnamon, ondeh ondeh, chilli bawang, sweet sesame, florentine mixed nuts, garlic soyu, and many more. But ah, we don’t just stop there. Suppose you have an event or party coming up, and want to surprise your guests. In that case, we can also conduct research and development to produce a one-of-a-kind flavour through our OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) services. Nothing is too crazy for us!
Uncle DiDi also serves all-time favourite flavours like salted caramel, sweet corn, honey, and many more. Not to show-off ah, but we pride ourselves on offering the freshest and possibly the most delicious salted butter popcorn in Singapore. If you’re planning to buy sweet popcorn in Singapore as well, we are the popcorn provider to turn to. Everything is made in-house with real ingredients, so you know you’re getting the best.
