The Grocery Chain Trader Joe's recently introduced a new product called 'Bollywood Popcorn' that draws inspiration from Indian cuisine. In recent years, flavored popcorn has become a popular treat among those looking for lighter snack options. This new popcorn makes use of authentic Indian spices for a treat that is extra flavorful.
Trader Joe's new Bollywood Popcorn combines air-popped corn with a tikka masala-inspired seasoning. More specifically, the popcorn is spiced with turmeric, cardamom, mustard seeds and garam masala. Despite the fact that the snack draws inspiration from a classic chicken dish, the popcorn is vegan, kosher and nut-free.
The new popcorn snack demonstrates the growing demand for food products that draw inspiration from the cuisine of other countries.
