Redenbacher microwave kettle corn
Real kettle corn has flecks of sugar crust on the popcorn. This stuff has instead a sourceless sweetness all through it, and the sweetness cloys and lingers in the way that makes Diet Sprite undrinkable. And in fact, the ingredients list reveals that the sweetener is sucralose. Sugar had technical problems? I can imagine it wouldn't caramelize in a microwave bag, but they weren't trying for that anyway. Anyway, feh.
I have no point, but I'd like to say "fervent, repeated, nearly emotional consumer requests".
