Note from Collin:

Do you have a product you love? We definitely have many favorite products here on the Hip2Save Team, and thought it would be FUN to share some of them with you! I personally love product recommendations and I’ve also had a few requests from readers, so I have asked each member of the team to think of products they love (cosmetics, kitchen gadgets etc.) and to write up a post that will be shared here every Tuesday.

Hi there! It’s Michelle – one of Collin’s Sidekicks!

Have you spotted these pretty purple bags while grocery shopping? If you know the secret, you probably added one (or four) to your cart. And if you don’t know the secret – I’ll tell you. This stuff is freakin’ delicious! Like eat the whole giant bag in one day delicious! 😬

A few months ago, Costco ran a Buy One Get One Free Sale on this Boom Chicka Pop Kettle Corn and my Sister-In-Law asked me to grab her four bags. I grabbed a few for myself since they were Buy One Get One Free and checked out with six bags. I got a few strange looks from people who obviously don’t know the secret.🙄

We cracked open a bag that night and my whole family was instantly hooked. The combination of sweet + salty is amazing. I seriously have to ration my purchases and only get one bag a month.

The only drawback to this deliciousness it that it’s not just sold at Costco, it’s everywhere, like Target, Walmart, Amazon, and probably even your local grocery store. I am SO tempted every single time I see the purple bags, and have even purchased them at FULL-PRICE!

Oh Boom Chicka Pop, I only have eyes for you. 😍

  2. Darcie

      • michelle (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        This is dangerous information! I did not need to know this 🙂

      • Tiff

        My dollar tree had them also! Oklahoma

  3. Deidre

    Yum! Tried it at Costco too and fell in love!

  4. Rebecca

    I saw small bags at Dollar Tree today.

    • michelle (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh dear! I’m in trouble!

  5. Brittany

    My Sams Club just started carrying the Angie’s Boom Chicka Pop Caramel & Cheddar popcorn mix. Try it, it is soooooo good! It’s in a pretty white bag with pink writing.

    • michelle (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I’ll have to look for that! That sounds like a yummy mix!

    • Wishinitwas

      Yes this is exactly what I was going to say! I love it!

  6. Jim

    Fresh kettle corn is even better! It’s at almost every farmers market or fair where I live

  7. Jayme F.

    Our Costco now has the giant bags for $2.97 each!

  8. Luv

    Yes!!! These are my favorite!!

  9. Rachel

    I just happened grab this to try last week and now I’m hooked. It’s so good.

  10. Freedom

    My favorite is the light kettle corn in the light blue/green bag.

    • michelle (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      So many flavors, so little time!

  11. Amy

    I think I’m the only person who hates the sweet and salty combination haha. I’ll have to pick some of this up for my mom though!

    • rebecca

      my family doesn’t think it’s anything special, either. i bought 4 big bags at Costco a long time ago on BOGO thinking everyone would find it such a treat, and we only ever got through 2 of them, the others expired.
      i took them to a couple big family parties, also, and people didn’t finish it off, it was only snacked on in moderation.
      there’s nothing wrong with it, it’s just not our favorite.

    • Erin

      I like sweet and salty but I don’t like kettle corn at all–and I LOVE popcorn. I have the most amazing caramel corn recipe that came with my popcorn popper that blows away bagged popcorn. I really need to make some soon.

      • Angela

        Will you share the recipe?

  12. Krissy

    Aldi makes a similar product that appears on their shelves every now and then!

  13. Josh

    Angies is manufactured less than a mile away from my house so on nights that they are popping and the wind is right, you step outside and it smells great! It’s the best stuff!

    • michelle (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      That’s so cool Josh!

    • Stacy

      Made in Mankato, Minnesota 😀😀

  14. Beth

    We love this stuff too! But today when I was at my local Costco they were sampling it and told me it was going to be discontinued. 🙁
    I think Costco is trying to clear the remaining bags they have out of their stores. Costco has the best price I have found in my area so I am disappointed they will no longer carry it.

    • michelle (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Noo! What a bummer!

  15. Shannon

    So good! I scored some at Aldi last week!

  16. Amber

    I can’t buy it – it’s more dangerous to have in the house than ice cream! I have no willpower when it comes to this stuff.

    • Amber

      Me either!!!

  17. Sonia

    I have no willpower either. Had a give the other bag away.

  18. Kathy Stephenson

    I tried it and LOVED it! I then saw that they also carry a lower calorie/lower fat version in a light green bag…and it’s just as good! I’ve only seen the lower calorie version at Meijer so far, but I’ve got my eyes open now at other stores because the purple bag is DANGEROUSLY DELICIOUS!

  19. Travis N Ervin

    These are amazing. I eating a bag now while typing 🙂 I have found some smaller bags at some Dollar Tree stores.
