479° Popcorn

I'm dying to try this popcorn. The reason why it's called 479° is because, according to the website, that is the optimal temperature for popping corn. It's not cheap. Prices range from $35 to $52 for various samplers. But just listen to the flavors: Black Truffle & White Cheddar, Alderwood Smoked Sea Salt, Fleur de Sel Caramel, Vietnamese Cinnamon Sugar, Ginger Sesame Caramel... if it is as good as it sounds, I'd happily pay that price.

It even made Oprah's O List:
"... this artisanal popcorn is the snack food equivalent of finding Brian Atwood shoes on sale while simultaneously riding off into the sunset with Benicio Del Toro in a Lamborghini on a Caribbean Beach."
If that doesn't make you want to buy this, I don't know what will.
