Price 原價: NTD$450
爆米花 – 玫瑰鹽焦糖風味
English Name: Popcorn with Crystal Salted Caramel
象牙白色的小顆爆米花表面有少許焦糖糖衣, 咬下一口脆爆米花, 適度的焦糖風味並不會蓋住獨特的微鹹風味.星球工坊採用的原物料為喜馬拉雅山的玫瑰岩鹽, 並沒有所謂的現代海洋呼染所以較為純淨且成本較高. 每口都是恰到好處的鹹甜平行風味.
Each beige color popcorn has small amounts of caramel sugar coating. Biting at the crispy popcorn, the caramel flavor didn’t cover the fair amount of saltness. Magi Planet uses Himalayas crystal salts instead of ocean salts in order to avoid nowadays ocean pollution but with higher cost. Every bite has perfectly merged salt and sweet flavors.
爆米花 – 玉米濃湯風味
English Name: Popcorn with Corn Soup Flavor
一打開即是”Campbell 金寶湯“的玉米濃湯風味, 由於沒有裹糖衣, 就像薯條沒有加番茄醬一樣, 吃起來較為爽脆. 品嚐濃厚玉米風味外, 隱約帶有點的甜味, 黑胡椒的提味則是呼應大部分人喝玉米湯喜歡加黑胡椒的習慣.
When opening the bag, the Campbell corn soup flavor appears. Because there isn’t any sugar coating, the popcorn is crisper than usual. While tasting, there are also hints of sweetness and peppers.
爆米花 – 海苔章魚燒風味
English Name: Popcorn with Takoyaki
每經過夜市, 總有一兩攤在賣章魚燒, 這款爆米花風味讓人感覺到又回到夜市, 滿滿的柴魚風味, 類似日式甜醬油的調味, 再加上海苔絲與洋蔥粉的加持, 吃一口時, 海鮮風味在口中散開.
When walking around Taiwan Night Market, there is always one or two food booths that are selling Takoyaki. The nose senses bonito (fish) flavors with sweet soy sauce flavors. Pairing with sliced seaweed and onion powder is perfect. Every bite has thick seafood aroma as well.
Next three flavors would be the gifts from their grand-opening stand at Taipei ATT4Fun Department store. The package color is white.
爆米花 – 川香麻辣
English Name: Popcorn with Mala Flavor
撲鼻而來的孜然香味讓人期待, 辛香料也包括了大紅袍花椒粉, 爆米花的Size較小且脆, 在吃的時候, 有種在吃“黃飛紅麻辣花生“的錯覺, 即使舌尖被麻辣風味衝擊, 仍舊心甘情願地吃完.
The cummins flavor stimulate your appetite. The spices also includes Sichuan peppers. Its Male flavor offer satisfaction to your carving for salty and spicy snacks.
爆米花 – 太妃焦糖
English Name: Popcorn with Toffee Flavor
很難想像星球工坊爆米花是人工爆炒與調味, 因為太妃焦糖完美地裹滿整粒爆米花形成厚糖衣, 焦糖甜味十足但不至於將味蕾全部包覆住, 網站上提到此款爆米花也可冷藏吃, 較不會黏手, 甜度稍微降低, 但風味仍然十足.
Could you imagine that “Magi Planet Popcorn” is produced manually? Well, the news said so. It is even harder to image that coating the popcorn perfectly with Toffee is done manually. However, the tastebuds didn’t cover by its sweetness and thick coating. The website mentioned that it could also be refrigerated. After refrigeration, the sweet level decreases but the toffee flavors remains the same.
爆米花 – 松露巧克力太妃
English Name: Popcorn with Truffle Toffee Flavor
一顆顆的形狀像之前Costco販售的松露巧克力迷你版, 打開包裝整個都是巧克力風味, 太妃焦糖黏著性強, 吃的時候只有少數巧克力粉會沾在手上, 冷藏後, 即使爆米花較鬆軟, 但卻增加了較多巧克力香氣.
When you opens the package, you would see the popcorn appearance looks like mini truffle chocolate. Overwhelmed chocolate flavors with toffee flavors offers double satisfaction while eating it. After refrigeration, the popcorn becomes a bit softer but with more chocolate flavor.
