Gotta eat ‘em all.

Singapore based popcorn brand The Kettle Gourmet and Nintendo’s Pokémon may seem like an unlikely combo – but the two companies have recently announced a new collaboration to launch a series of Pokémon popcorn.

Beginning July 2021, all-new Pokémon-themed special edition sets based on 3 iconic Pokémon characters will be on sale.

Three iconic match-ups

To kick off the collaboration, The Kettle Gourmet has announced three iconic Pokémon characters to accompany three of their iconic popcorn flavours.

The famous characters are featured prominently on the three variants’ packaging, allowing popcorn fans to indulge in their favourite snack whilst catching Pokémon!

1. Chilli Crab feat. Charmander

First is a Charmander-themed Chilli Crab popcorn to emphasise the hot taste of one of Singapore’s most renowned dishes. Each fiery red-orange popcorn matches the Fire-type Pokémon’s personality to a T: spicy, feisty but still cute.

2. Kaya Butter Toast feat. Bulbasaur

The second variant, and other regional flavour, Kaya Butter Toast features Bulbasaur, the dual Grass-and-Poison type Pokémon.

3. Chocolate feat. Squirtle

The final popcorn is chocolate-flavoured and features the Water-type Pokémon, Squirtle. Squirtle may not be the first Pokémon we would associate with chocolate but the brown-coloured popcorn sorta matches his shell, so we’ll take it!
