4700 BC Popcorn, said to be India’s first gourmet popcorn brand, has a store in Phoenix Market City where you can fill up fancy tins with out-of-the-box flavours. The cheesy ones win our vote.
4700BC Popcorn Will Hook You Up With Mocha, Salsa, and Peanut Butter Versions
What Makes It Awesome
Located on the second floor of Phoenix Market City, 4700 BC is a small store where you can browse through and buy all kinds of gourmet popcorn. While they’ve listed a long list of offerings on their website (probably available if ordered online), they only had around ten to twelve flavours at the store. The Magical Rainbow, Peanut Butter Dark Choco-All-Ate, Mocha Walnut Choco-All-Ate, and Sour Cream and Oninon are just some of the flavours we spotted on our visit here. And you can pop a few in your mouth before making a pick. They pack them in pretty tin boxes with the smallest one priced at INR 130.
With boxes filled with different coloured popcorn the jury is out on if the sweet or savory ones are better. The Nutty Tuxedo is strictly for those who love sugar. The dark, milk, and white chocolate, we found, was only sporadically drizzled on the popped kernels. Much of it was only coated in caramel which can very well serve as a dessert option. The Tex-Mex Salsa came with an undeniable hit of the salsa flavour that worked spectacularly with its cheesy counterpart. The popcorn can be warmed a bit in your microwave to enjoy it at home. While we certainly won’t be rushing back anytime soon, their Cheesy Popcorn will definitely be on our list of things to buy the next we host a movie night.
What Could Be Better
They're quite pricey (exactly as much as you'd spend at the theatre while shedding tears) even for the fancy flavours. The sweet versions cannot be microwaved as the sugar will melt and you'll have a mass of soggy popcorn.
