Since we first tried it, LesserEvil Organic Popcorn has taken on a new look and tons of new flavors. All are gluten-free and dairy-free, with the exception of the Ghee variety (yes, ghee is dairy) and the Classic Cheddah (don’t worry, they have a cheesy dairy-free option!).
LesserEvil also releases Limited Edition flavors often, and those are usually dairy-free. They had a Sweetheart flavor for Valentine’s Day, and for summer, they’ve launched some sweet fruit-inspired flavors. All the details follow.

How does non cheese taste like cheese
I bought these “no cheese cheesiness” out of curiosity and was extremely shocked that they taste like their is real cheese on them, I ended up buying the last three bags at my local Aldi
Can't wait to try more varieties
I’ve only tried two varieties so far. Here are my notes on each.
Himalayan Pink Salt: This is simplicity and convenience at its best – just organic popcorn, coconut oil, and himalayan pink salt. Each kernel was wonderfully light and fluffy, and as close as I could imagine to fresh air popped in a bag. And honestly, how did they get such a perfect distribution of coconut oil and salt?
Himalayan Sweetness: I had no problem getting my family to help polish off this all-natural kettle corn. Organic evaporated cane juice and brown rice syrup are used for a perfect light sweetness that pleased our entire house. I thought it could use just a touch more salt for contrast, but delicious nonetheless.
