You heard. GIN AND TONIC FLAVOURED POPCORN! Brought to you by gourmet popcorn chef and connoisseur Joseph Sopher of Joe & Seph's, this unusual combination of crisp gin and tonic and crunchy, caramel-coated popcorn is a taste sensation, I tell thee.
At first, I just couldn't get my head round how these flavours would work together. For a start, I'm definitely more of a salted popcorn person - but I make an exception for good ol' toffee Butterkist, natch. Secondly, although I'm certainly not averse to pairing booze with sweet things - remember my giant Cointreau-laced jaffa cake? Or the time I went all Juliette Binoche on you and made rose and gin chocolates? - I just wasn't at all keen on the idea of gin and caramel. No.
But, but... YES. For perhaps only the 57,366th time in my life, I was wrong. It turns out gin, tonic, caramel, and popcorn are a terrific foursome. Like the Fantastic Four. Or the Famous Five if they got shot of Anne. Completely delicious, and so moreish. And it really does taste like a G&T.
I suppose you want to know where to buy gin and tonic popcorn, eh? Well - Firebox is selling it for £6.99 a bag (I neglected to tell you that this stuff costs more than an actual gin and tonic). Or, go and buy direct from Joe & Seph's - the only downside (upside?) is that the minimum order is three bags. BUT! You get three bags for £12, including postage, so why not give some of the other mouthwatering flavours a try while you're at it? We're already fans of the lemon and poppyseed ("Utterly phenomenal" - Kat Brown).
