Food Find:Popitas Dulce de Leche Popcorn

It’s very rare that I see a Dulce de Leche microwave popcorn. Usually, its either butter, cheese, salsa or just plain white that’s available  at the groceries. So when I saw this flavor, my mouth watered, my thoughts was instantly filled with crispy white popcorn, swirled with creamy, caramelly dulce de leche.

A packet costs P43/$1. Not bad, that’s how much one pack of microwave popcorn usually costs. So I bought it thinking it would be good for movie nights when popcorns are a non-negotiable.

But one afternoon came my craving for sweets and so the sweet kernels were popped inside the microwave. It smelled so good and I was excited in anticipation. When I opened the packet came the disappointment.

I was expecting crispy white popcorn covered in ooey-gooey dulce de leche but all I saw were white popcorns.

I hate white popcorns.

They’re devoid of flavor and excitement.

And when I tried them, all they have is a hint of sweetness…nothing more. No dulce de leche magic.

So what I did was melt 3 tbsp of butter in the microwave and dip each popcorn into melted butter before I pop it into my mouth.

Now, that was amazing.

Told you I love butter.

  1. Well sadly enough the only variety we can find here in the regular supermarket is either sweet or salt. Plain sugar and plain salt. When it comes to popcorn I totally prefer savory above sweet and my favorite is cheese, but for some reason they took it of the market… So sad…
    Too bad also that you dulce de leche popcorn wasn’t what it should have been!

  2. Thats what I like in Philippines the flavours you get of popcorn is unlimited, from caramel, barbecue, cheese, sour cream and chives and even bubble gum, I like them all!

  3. I am like you…love the popcorn with butter and lots of butter 🙂 Sorry that you were disappointed with the dulce de leche, but you found a way to fix it 🙂 Have a wonderful week ahead!

  4. Came here thru google … this is such a major disappointment to the point that I googled it … popitas is a freaking lying bastard … lying bastards …. i am gonna sue them … by the way, the melted butter is a good but kinda dangerous idea, but danger is good
