Guilty pleasures: Butterkist Toffee Popcorn
I was at the cinema earlier this week and one of my friends had bought some Butterkist Toffee Popcorn. God it was good. I can't remember the last time I had it, but crunching through the toffee coating into the soft mallowy popcorn instantly reminded what a fabulously guilty pleasure it is. I know that popcorn has come back into vogue. I've had some rather smart smoky bacon popcorn at Texture restaurant and there are lots more examples of 'gourmet' popcorn, but, I have to say, good old Butterkist takes some beating (although this fancier – salted caramel version from Joe & Seph's at Selfridges looks tempting, too). Empty calories don't get much naughtier than this.
