I received Cosmos Creations in order to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and may differ from yours.
Cosmos Creations is not popcorn…it’s premium puffed corn. Is there a difference? You bet there is! Don’t you just hate it when popcorn hulls get stuck in your teeth? Or you are left with a handful of un-popped kernels at the bottom of your popcorn bag? Cosmos Creations has no hulls or kernels and it’s non-GMO corn.
When the box arrived, I was excited to try it as was my husband. I had to keep him away from the box until I took pictures because he wanted to open them up as soon as they arrived. You would think he knew the drill already.
We received a bag (or two) of each flavor:
Cheddar and Pepper. If cheddar sharpens with age, then we just gave our premium puffed corn an ultra-fine edge. Enhancing this flavor with the feistiness of cracked pepper is not only a work of art but a stroke of genius. It’s a match made in taste-bud heaven. Cheddar & Pepper is how old-world seasoning meets today’s demanding cravings. It’s just one more way you can enjoy pure, natural* ingredients in a snack that’s deliciously addictive.
Salted Caramel. It’s a little sweet. It’s a little salty. It’s a lot fantastic. When caramel and sea salt come together to make all your taste buds come to life, you’ll think the stars have aligned. Oven-baked non-GMO corn with just the right amount of salted caramel. Pure, natural* ingredients combined to make a snack that’s deliciously addictive.
Caramel Apple Crisp. (Just give me a box of this flavor and I will be heaven!) This flavor is a no brainer. Our classic premium puffed corn served summer-style with a delicious combination of crisp, tart apple crumbles and silky sweet caramel. It’s a crunchy snack twist on a classic treat, loved by the entire family! Indulge your sweet tooth with moments of unparalleled bliss. Real apple chunks. Premium puffed corn. Sweet decadent caramel. Need we say more? *Minimally processed with no artificial ingredients. This flavor is a no brainer.

Sea Salt and Butter. This is tradition with a twist. Our Sea Salt & Butter Creation is made for the purist. With just a touch of buttery flavor and real sea salt, you get the best of classic flavors in every original bite. Pure, natural* ingredients combined to make a snack that’s deliciously addictive.
Coconut Crunch. For generations, people around the world have revered the coconut as a valuable source of food and medicine. We revere it for the richness it brings to our Coconut Crunch. What begins with our simple caramel recipe turns into something extraordinary by adding just the right amount of coconut oil and a generous sprinkle of pure coconut shred. Two flavors that blend seamlessly together to send your senses on a sweet escape. Pure, natural* ingredients in a snack that’s deliciously addictive.
Spicy Sriracha. Made up of peppers, garlic and a hearty blend of spices, Sriracha hot sauce could be the most delicious condiment known to man. Its allure is undeniable. Sriracha provides just the right amount of flavor to keep your tongue sizzling after each bite. Flaming seasoning inspired by the legendary sauce – it’s spicy, peppery and of course, super tasty! Pure natural* ingredients combined with our premium puffed corn to make a snack that’s deliciously addictive.
If you haven’t been able to tell, the Caramel Apple Crisp is my favorite. It’s a little sweet but not overly sweet and you can taste the apple and caramel. My second favorite is the Salted Caramel where you can also taste the caramel.
The Spicy Sriracha is my husbands favorite. It’s not real spicy but you definitely get a little after bite letting you know that you ate something spicy. He also likes the Cheddar and Pepper.
Besides that it’s non-GMO, it’s also gluten free, trans fat free and they use natural ingredients to make them, something you don’t hear to often. There are no preservatives, no artificial colors, no artificial flavors and no additives.
So, the real question is…is Cosmos Creations popcorn? The answer is no. It’s gourmet oven baked corn. Cosmos is made from corn meal that is extruded then baked, resulting in a puff. (and it’s really, really good!) You can also eat Cosmos Creations if you have braces.
You can even try them warmed up in the oven at 150° for about 10 minutes. I haven’t tried it yet, but we will as soon as the weather cools down from 100!
Noah really likes them too. Couldn’t get enough!
