It’s a taste of summer, the memory of a wonderful childhood, all brought about by the rich tang of cheddar cheese. It tickles your taste buds and leaves a delicious remembrance on each finger. There’s no cheese like cheddar cheese by Chef Tony’s.

I was supposed to release my skincare review today but I just can’t wait for you guys to know my latest discovery about food…Last night, my husband went out to buy soft drinks and asked me what I want. I just said Ferrero chocolates (yes they are my favorite). He came home without my Ferrero, but he said he got something for me. I was really curious to know what he had for me and he handed me a cheddar cheese popcorn in a tub and mango waffle chocolates – both made here in the Philippines. I didn’t try to open it yet that night because we were also about to eat dinner. So I decided to just put it aside for later.
Later that evening though while I was half sleep my husband told me “you will love the popcorn, its so good”. My husband loves popcorn so I knew by then the popcorn was going to be delicious.
Late this morning, I decided to open my container and give it a try. It was like love at first bite! So I looked closely at the back of the tub and immediate searched their Facebook account. I found out that aside from the cheddar cheese flavor we tasted, they have a whole variety of flavors to try. Researching further, I learned that Chef Tony’s popcorn started as a small popcorn cart in Manila, Philippines back in 2005.
According to their labeling and literature…
“Chef Tony’s’ recipes use only the finest and natural ingredients from all over the world: GMO-free corn kernels, real cheeses, chocolates, honey, and whole nuts from the U.S., Europe and Japan. We use only natural materials to make the best-tasting popcorn – absolutely no preservatives and artificial flavors!”
“Chef Tony’s has also expand in some neighboring countries in the ASEAN region such as Indonesia and Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand and Dubai. As it continues to expand while emerging as a distinctly Filipino brand, the Company is committed to deliver an excellent and diverse array of snack for families and friends to enjoy. Chef Tony’s remains passionate as ever to deliver a popcorn brand that not only satisfies one’s cravings but also brings joy and delight through its tubs of happiness.”
Trying Chef Tony’s popcorn was a great experience. The tastes were unique and authentic. For my tastes, it is a little on the sweet side. But overall, it’s a great product but definitely to be considered a “treat”. I look forward to trying some of their other flavors, and I will definitely share my thoughts.
As always, I welcome your comments. If you tried other brands of flavored popcorn, feel free to share your thoughts and/or make your recommendation. If you HAVE tried Chef Tony’s, I’d be interested in knowing which flavors to try next.
