We Tried The Jonas Brothers' New Popcorn. Here's What You Need To Know

There are many snack foods with all-time status. Belonging near the top of the list is ... popcorn. That becomes even more evident when an already savory-tasting popcorn company gets the Jonas Brothers treatment.

In a move that should have popcorn aficionados and Jonas Brothers fans dancing with joy, Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas have some savory news. "As the global sensation Jonas Brothers return to their home state of New Jersey for two sold-out performances on the "Remember This" tour, the trio are bringing more than just a good time to the Garden State," according to a press release provided to us by Jennifer Bett Communications. "Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas have partnered with The Naked Market, a next-gen food and beverage business, to bring to life a long-time backstage snack. Starting October 5th, Rob's Backstage Popcorn, a specialty, artisanal popcorn brand, and the Jonas Brothers' first joint venture in the robust CPG space, will be available for nationwide delivery on eatrobs.com."

We were lucky enough to get our hands on a bag of Rob's Backstage Popcorn, and here's what you need to know before popping open your own bag.

Here's what's in Rob's Backstage Popcorn

Popcorn is known as a savory treat. Some versions pack a lot of salt, others a plethora of butter, and some a combination of both — but this doesn't necessarily mean popcorn is bad for you. Rob's Backstage Popcorn has an ingredients list that features its fair share of ingredients, yet the first four on the list can be expected from a tasteful and sweet popcorn: popcorn, olive oil, sugar, and salt. Rounding out the ingredient's list is "Sodium Citrate, Onion and Garlic Powder, Red Bell Pepper, Carrot and Silicon Dioxide added to prevent caking."

"The secret seasoning for Rob's Backstage Popcorn was originally created more than three decades ago by Rob Garbowsky, the father of Greg Garbowsky, longtime friend, former bass guitarist, and current member of the band's management team," the Jennifer Bett Communications press release stated.

Described as the band's "go-to snack," "The highly classified recipe includes a one-of-a-kind seasoning, resulting in a perfect mix of sweet and savory that makes it impossible to quit after just one handful." After trying the popcorn, we have to say, that definitely checks out. As we found ourselves eating one joyful handful of popcorn after the next.

Also, in case you were wondering, this popcorn is gluten-free and vegan. Need we say more?

Rob's Backstage Popcorn is available online for a reasonable price

One would think that a sweet and savory popcorn –– a reminder, with the Jonas Brothers attached –– would be on the pricey side, yet it's been smacked with a totally reasonable price tag. According to eatrobs.com, Jonas Brothers' favorite backstage snack is $19.99 for four bags. Making each 4-ounce bag $4.99 apiece. Even better? You can order it online and have it shipped directly to your door as it's now shipping nationwide.

So not only can you eat the Jonas Brothers' favorite backstage snack in the comfort of your home, but you can do so at a sensible price –– and you don't even have to leave your home to go from popcorn bag to mouth. As the press release pointed out, the popcorn is aimed clearly at " the shifting interests and demands of today's consumers." In other words, making the popcorn affordable, relatively healthy, and easy to procure was key.

How this backstage favorite compares to other popcorns

When it comes to popcorn taste, many people want to know one question in specific: Does it taste as good as movie theater popcorn? Rob's Backstage Popcorn, needless to say, doesn't taste like traditional movie theater popcorn that's flooded with butter –– and we believe that's a good thing. It's a dry popcorn (if you will) and although it's salty in all the right ways, a sweet kiss is present.

In case you're wondering, no, it's not as sweet as, say, kettle corn. And that's also a good thing. This popcorn satisfies all your cravings thanks to its salt and sweet profile.

As popcorn fans have likely noticed, there are virtually an unlimited amount of popcorn options to choose from, and finding a favorite can sometimes seem like a roller-coaster ride in itself. From Orville Redenbacher's to Pop Secret, there are plenty of satisfying options. Yet we believe Rob's Backstage Popcorn stands alone by itself. You get the feeling that you're eating specialty popcorn, yet it's impossible to put down. Popcorn is a perfectly splendid snack, and we encourage popcorn lovers to taste Rob's Backstage Popcorn for themselves as everyone's taste buds are different.

How healthy is a bag of Rob's Backstage Popcorn?

Though popcorn can be a healthier snack option than certain chips, finger foods, and sweet treats, everyone has a different definition of what constitutes healthy. So we'll put it this way: Each 4-ounce bag has 150 calories per serving (four servings per bag), 9 grams of total fat, and 200 milligrams of sodium. Continuing the nutrition facts journey, there are 16 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 1 gram of total sugar, and 2 grams of protein in each bag.

One gram of sugar is typically considered low, which should be (Jonas Brothers') music to people's ears. And, of course, the fact that this popcorn is gluten-free and vegan makes it an appealing offer. Oh, it's also GMO-free. And, perhaps most important of all, it's, as eatrobs.com states, Jonas Brothers approved.

From a satisfying price tag to a nutrition list that's not a nightmare, there's a lot to love about this popcorn. And, at long last, there's the taste.

Rob's Backstage Popcorn is too good to pass up

The fact that this popcorn has been exclusively available at Live Nation venues on stops along the tour, yet is now available nationwide, makes this popcorn too good to pass up. Then you factor in the cost. And then –– and then! –– there's the fact that Rob's Backstage Popcorn brings it in the taste department.

Rob's Backstage Popcorn is salty and has hints of sweetness. Each bite is just as crunchy (but not too crunchy) as the last. The seasoning is unique yet addicting. Needless to say, this is really good popcorn. We will say that it runs a little salty –– if you're used to eating plain popcorn, that is. Yet if you're comparing it to, say, movie theater popcorn, it will taste just right, only better. As it already comes cooked and ready to eat in a bag, it's not going to be as hot as microwave popcorn, but the flavor will take away any doubts you had.

Rob's Backstage Popcorn is the real deal –– and now you can be like the Jonas Brothers on tour and eat this one-of-a-kind popcorn from the convenience of your home.
