When I first tried Icon Meals’ protein packed Protein Popcorn last year at GNC I was looking for a healthier snack that was full of protein but that all that crap, I immediately became a fan. It was, something I wanted to have all of the time, even if the macros aren’t that good as more favorable to some of your more traditional health snacks like Quest protein chips.
When Ghost partnered with Icon Meals for a Protein Popcorn made with its unique Cereal Milk Ghost Whey, I knew I had to give it a try. This week I picked up a few bags of the Ghost Cereal Milk. Ghost cereal milk has been my go-to flavor is the freedom flavor is sold out. I’ve had the unfortunate opportunity to try the cotton candy and straight in the trash it went.
If you haven’t tried Icon Meals Protein Popcorn before, it is incredibly sweet, but not artificial tasting sweet, and so it should be with the Cereal Milk flavor packing 60g of sugar alongside 40g of protein per bag. As soon as you bite into the Ghost and Icon snack, you get a very strong, sugar, flavor hit, that’s almost like the taste of a light layer of icing which I don’t mind because I do enjoy Icing.
Once you get through that enjoyable first layer, you get to the title relevant popcorn center, which only really adds a traditional popcorn consistency to the experience. That delicious outside layer delivers such a heavy flavor that it’s essentially all you taste from start to finish, and that’s certainly not a bad thing.
You can kind of taste the Cereal Milk flavor in the mix of it all, regardless of how many pieces you throw in your mouth, but it’s nowhere near as strong as in the Ghost Whey protein powder itself. That sweet, sugary flavor truly dominates the experience, although that does make it difficult to put the bag down.
It’s no surprise Icon and Ghost’s Cereal Milk Protein Popcorn tastes great, as the freedom flavor I’ve tried is just as delicious. The Ghost Whey flavor does bring a somewhat distinct taste to the table, resulting in a protein and calorie dense product that I imagine most people will enjoy.
