Clancy’s White and Dark Drizzled Caramel Corn

Popcorn is a great snack, and there are all kinds of ways to eat it. You can enjoy it plain (for the health conscious), salted and buttered, or coated with savory seasonings. Or you can have a sweetened version for dessert.

Aldi sells all kinds of popcorn either as a year-round Regular Buy or as limited-time Aldi Finds. The discount grocer sells several types of microwavable popcorn bags all the time, and occasionally they sell popcorn kernels and popcorn seasoning.

Also, during the holidays, they sell a few types of chocolate drizzled caramel corn perfect for serving during celebrations or just for snacking on.

Clancy's Caramel Corn

Clancy’s White and Dark Drizzled Caramel Corn cost $2.99 for a 16-oz. bag at the time of publication.

This is an Aldi Find (Special Buy), which means it’s only in stores for a short time. Aldi doesn’t sell its specials online, so once your local store sells out, it’s gone until the next year’s holiday season.

The package describes this as “caramel popcorn drizzled with white and dark chocolate flavored coating.” It also is kosher.

One bag has 16 servings. One 1/2 cup (28 gram) serving has 130 calories, 4 grams of saturated fat (6% DV), 4 grams of saturated fat (20% DV), 75 mg of sodium (3% DV), 21 grams of total carbohydrates (8% DV), 16 grams of total sugars, 15 grams of added sugars (30% DV), and 1 gram of protein.

Ingredients are corn syrup, sugar, popcorn, molasses, salt, butter, canola oil, natural flavor, soy lecithin (emulsifier). The dark chocolate coating is made with sugar, vegetable oil (palm kernel and/or palm), cocoa powder processed with alkalai, soy lecithin (emulsifier), and vanilla. The white chocolate coating is made with sugar, palm kernel oil, whey powder (milk), nonfat dry milk, soy lecithin, salt, and vanilla.

If you’re watching out for allergens, this contains milk and soy. It may also contain peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, and eggs.

My family loves this popcorn, and it doesn’t last long in our house. It’s a favorite snack of ours, and I’ve been known to gift it to others during the holidays, tucking it into a gift bag filled with other presents and goodies. It’s always appreciated.

The Verdict:

Clancy’s White and Dark Drizzled Caramel Corn is an irresistible treat Aldi usually sells during the winter holiday season. This caramel corn is coated with dark chocolate and white chocolate and is perfect for snacking. Recommended.

  1. Actually, that symbol indicates that the entire product is Kosher and that the product contains dairy. One of the rules of Kosher is that meat and dairy items cannot be eaten together, so people who are Kosher would use that symbol to know that this product can be eaten only with other dairy foods. Kosher Pareve or sometimes spelled Kosher Parve means that the food does not contain either meat or dairy and can thus be eaten with either meat or dairy meals.

  2. I realize the Clancy White and Dark Carmel Corn is a seasonal item.
    I would hope that Aldi’s would consider selling it for other “seasons” like Valentine’s Day and Easter. I made smaller gift bags with it for
    Christmas and the response was “WOW”.
