F&W Executive Food Editor Tina Ujlaki applies her incredible cooking knowledge to explaining what to do with a variety of interesting ingredients.

I’m a sucker for popcorn and all other toasty, savory corn snacks, from chips to corn nuts, to Halfpops and those Spanish imports called Quicos. Recently, one of my favorite versions, which was called Glad Corn and sold in pocket-size bags, disappeared from my health food store, only to reappear in a larger format and renamed Pop’d Kerns.

It resembles classic popcorn without the fluff, and with the kernel portion fried (I assume) until exploded and super-crispy. I’ve only had the plain version—and I think I’ll stick to that. They’re awesome and addictive straight out of the bag, but they also make wicked-good, nut-free, sweet-and-salty bark or rochers if you fold them into melted dark, milk or even white chocolate.
