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.
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, 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 Tex-Mex Salsa Golden Cheese were just some of the versions we spotted on our visit here. The helpful attendant will happily show you around the glass and wooden boxes. And you can pop a few in your mouth before making a pick. They pack them in pretty tin boxes. And a small tin costs around INR 140. So, it is fairly pricey.
We packed up the Nutty Tuxedo Choco-All-Ate and the Tex-Mex Salsa Golden Cheese to try at home. 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 and that was surely disappointing. It can very well serve as a dessert option this one. The Tex-Mex Salsa was our pick for the day. It came with an undeniable hit of the salsa flavour that worked spectacularly with its cheesy counterpart. We simply warmed it up in the microwave for a bit and were warranted great company for our movie night. Be warned, you can’t warm up the sweet versions, they’ll simply melt into a mess.
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.
