    1. Nope, and it’s yet another illustration of my point about loaded language around food marketing. Why does it have to be called “Lesser Evil”? Also, how can food be clean? It isn’t dirty to begin with. Ugh…

      1. Well, there is such a thing as “clean” food ie. minimally processed and free of any additives/preservatives etc. Which really is a stretch for this company to claim since this is a packaged convenience food with added processed flavourings and colouring…

        Meh, just like any other company they’re following consumer trends and fads to turn as much profit as possible.

  1. They had some other interesting flavors as well. I was looking at these a few weeks ago but decided I didn’t need an entire bag of Peach Mango popcorn.

    1. I feel like my taste buds would be so confused by this product! I’d definitely try it and would never spend my money on it.

      1. Agree on the confusion factor. Popcorn and fruit-flavors seem…incongruous, to me. Then again, maybe I’d like these. Like you said: I’d definitely try them, but wouldn’t want to spend my own money on them, due to the high potential of my not liking them.

  2. I’ve seen cherry and lime in some sort of beverage called a “rickey”. Or at least in a rickey style (no alcohol. Similar to something Snapple would offer). I reckon it could be a good thing but could be a failure as well. I vaguely remember as a little kid in the 80’s eating “colored popcorn” in one of any of the rainbow colors. But I don’t think those were fruit flavored, per se.

    So, who knows.

    1. Re: “I vaguely remember as a little kid in the 80’s eating “colored popcorn” in one of any of the rainbow colors.” YESSS…I remember that stuff so well, from childhood! I had forgotten all about it, until now. Thanks, for the happy trip down memory lane. 😀

  3. I highly doubt 99% of cans of chili out there are no good. Most of them have a similar taste to Hormel which is to say disgusting. SInce Marie Callender’s is made by Con Agra which makes Wolf Brand Chili, I assume it’ll taste similar and it’s most likely a hard pass for me. Having said that, I’ll still try and find it and try it out once. I highly doubt I’ll like it.
