Weaver Gold Popcorn Review and Giveaway

Popcorn is a favorite snack of mine. I love the crunchy exterior that it has along with the aromatic flavor of butter or seasalt. Popcorn can be enjoyed in so many ways, but my favorite way to enjoy this delightful treat is air popped with just a hint of melted butter poured over it. Healthy and delicious!



Weaver Gold is the first microwave popcorn made with olive oil. Our popcorn delivers exceptional taste and better nutrition! The company is based in Indiana and was founded in 1928 by Reverend Ira Weaver. Popcorn has been their only business for more than 80 years. They control the quality every step of the way, from seed to package, and their popcorn is 100% GMO-free. Weaver Popcorn distributes popcorn in more than 90 countries.

I was sent two delicious flavors of Weaver Gold popcorn, movie theater butter and parmesean with Italian herbs and garlic. I had never tried popcorn with olive oil before so I was intrigued by the thought of it.

A uniquely fresh and flavorful taste. The perfect balance of Tuscan-inspired flavors with savory parmesan, Italian herbs and a hint of garlic in every bite.


The extraordinary buttery taste you crave with a rich aroma that makes it hard to keep this snack all to yourself.

I first sampled the parmesean with Italian herbs and garlic. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it at first because I was worried the garlic flavor would be very strong. That wasn't the case at all. The popcorn smelled heavenly as it was popping in the microwave. I couldn't wait to dig in. As I opened the bag I was hit with the potent flavors of garlic and cheese all at once and it smelled fantastic! Upon first bite, I tasted the crunchy popcorn exterior and my tastebuds were met with a strong burst of parmesean and a hint of garlic flavor that was out of this world! I was in popcorn bliss and loving every minute of it. I noticed a subtle herb flavor which gave the popcorn a nice kick of personality. Each bite of popcorn had an equal balance of flavors and it was truly addicting! I couldn't believe that this was microwavable popcorn, it tasted like high quality gourmet popcorn that you would receive in a tin! It was marvelous and I highly enjoyed it.

Next, I sampled the movie theatre butter style popcorn. I patiently stood by the microwave watching the seconds tick down and waiting for the popcorn to pop. I knew that this snack had a date with my stomach! The popcorn smelled so mouth-wateringly delicious. I tried a few pieces and it was pure bliss. I loved that the movie theatre style popcorn was now in my kitchen. The only thing missing was a 60" screen and a movie playing in my living room! The popcorn was excellently crunchy and had a marvelous butter flavor. This snack is definitely a comfort food. The flavor of the butter was not overwhelming, but just perfect. Each bite was better than the first and I had to stop myself as to not eat the entire bag all at once! It was by far the best microwavable popcorn I've ever had. I highly recommend it.
