Metcalfe's Skinny Topcorn - Sweet Cinnamon Spice


Ah ha, what a find!  An actually rather generous portion of popcorn in a snack sized bag at just 117 calories in total?  This stuff must be pretty flavourless right?  Wrong!  It’s pretty lovely stuff actually.

I’m rather enjoying this recent popcorn craze lately.  Once upon a time you could only buy salty, sweet or buttered.  Nowadays you can get a vast variety of different flavours and Metcalfe’s Topcorn is one of the leaders of the pack.

The cinnamon in this pack wasn’t too overpowering and much of the corn had a very slight little sugared glaze.  It certainly satisfied my craving for something sweet and went down very well with a cuppa.  I don’t think there was a single unpopped kernel in the entire pack either! I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for it again.

I haven’t found this flavour in many shops in my local city of Bristol, but managed to pick this up in Portishead’s Waitrose for around 79p.  You can often pick up Metcalfe’s Topcorn in Primark and Pret  A Manger too.


  1. I didn't know you could get this popcorn in Primark! I bet they stack them by the tills - it would work on me I don't think I could leave a pack behind!

    Look forward to reading more of your reviews :)

  2. Haha, yes, you'd be right, that is exactly where they place it!

    Thanks Katherine, love your work!

  3. I keep meaning to try this popcorn but have only seen the big packs. Now I know where to find the smaller ones, I will be on the look out!

    1. They're the perfect size, I often stock up when I see them! Perfect for the cinema too!
