Some products at Aldi are obvious cult favorites. The “red bag” chicken. The peanut butter cups. The take and bake pizzas. The accent cabinet. The kids’ Aldi food market playset.
Then there are other products that don’t get quite as much fanfare, but you still see them mentioned on Aldi social media and you know they’re popular. The pub pretzels. The burnt ends. The Mediterranean herb salmon.
Every once in a while, Aldi sells popcorn that falls into that second category. It’s really good, with a unique seasoning, and while it garners some chatter among fans, it’s perhaps one of the more underrated snacks Aldi sells.
Clancy’s Roasted Sweet Corn Flavored Popcorn cost $2.49 for a 6-ounce bag at the time of publication. The package describes this as “air popped & lightly seasoned with the flavor of roasted sweet corn.” It is kosher and gluten free.

This roasted sweet corn popcorn tastes like traditional buttered popcorn kicked up a notch. It has more corn flavor, along with notes of butter, salt, and pepper. Its flavor is reminiscent of the corn on the cob I used to eat at family reunions in the Midwest, where they roasted the corn on the cob in the husk and we generously seasoned it with butter, salt, and pepper. It is a real treat.
Clancy’s Roasted Sweet Corn Flavored Popcorn captures the essence of roasted corn on the cob coated with butter and seasonings. If you like corn, and if you like popcorn, give this a try.
