Orville Reddenbacher White Cheddar & Caramel popcorn--a hit?

I was very excited to be invited to be part of the Orville Reddenbacher White Cheddar & Caramel popcorn campaign run by Influenster. I wanted take a different approach in testing this product. In order to get a wide variety of opinions on what individuals thought of Orville Reddenbacher's White Cheddar & Caramel popcorn, we did a blind taste test at school and compared this popcorn with G.H Gretor's Chicago Mix. Each participant (which consisted of the students in my class as well as my colleagues) were given an opportunity to taste both styles of popcorn without seeing which was which. We turned the popcorn test into a mathematics tallying and graphing lesson, followed by a quick language activity which involved giving the popcorn a rating between 1-5 stars. This rating also came with some feedback about the product.

Here are the results:

In comparison between the two types of popcorn 61.5% preferred the C.H Gregot's Mix; 38.5% preferred the Orville Reddenbacher brand. Out of the ENTIRE group of taste testers over 50% couldn't really tell the difference between the two brands.

The consensus when completing a 5 star rating of just the Orville Reddenbacher
Popcorn was an average of 4-4.5 stars. Much of the feedback was for a more white cheddar flavour and less salt. The other comment was to create more of a 50/50 ratio of both flavours of popcorn.

If you're interested in trying out this new flavour of popcorn. Please look at your local grocers and give it a try yourself. I'm sure my students would be thrilled to hear what you have to say.

**I received the white cheddar & caramel popcorn
