The next time you find yourself in Kuwait, be sure to save your appetite for some of the ingenious creations by gourmet popcorn company Let’s Popcorn. The homegrown brand’s salty, sweet, and specialty flavors range from tahini and cardamom to date and halwa. Its menu takes into account both the region’s unique spices as well as flavors loved by all – think: coconut, mango, carrot cake, tzatziki, cheeseburger, falafel, nachos, Oreo Peanut Butter, and marble cake.
Clearly, these unique flavors – 37 in total! – put the buttered popcorn at your local theater to shame. Let’s Popcorn, however, is particularly known for one offering: its rosewater-flavored popcorn. The kernels are popped without frying oil, thus creating an extra-fluffy texture, before being dipped in rose syrup with a hint of sugar. Not a fan of rosewater? The company also recommends the following best-sellers: ‘Caramel Pecan’, ‘Strawberry Ice Cream’, and ‘Pizza Italiana’.
Launched in 2011, Let’s Popcorn has quickly expanded to Lebanon, Qatar, Oman, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain, with plans for a UAE franchise expected shortly.
