For those who have trouble deciding, there are three Main Street Favorites mixes that offer a blend of flavors and candies. But if you’re still on the fence, we’ve tried all three mixes!

The Mayor’s Marvelous Medley — $12.99

This mix is made with caramel popcorn, almond M&M’s, pretzel pieces, and dark chocolate syrup.

This was a really good sweet, chocolatey treat. The sweetness from the caramel popcorn and the saltiness from the pretzels compliment each other well. That being said, you may be expecting peanut M&M’s in this one, but the almond M&M’s fit perfectly in this mix.

This one can melt quickly, so it may not the best choice for a hot day, but it’s really enjoyable. We only wish there were more pretzels!

Dapper Dans Sweet Melody — $13.99

The harmonious voices of Main Street, U.S.A.’s barbershop quartet are honored with a mix of rainbow popcorn, original and sour Skittles, mini marshmallows, and white chocolate syrup.

This was definitely a fruity, sweet option. Unfortunately, they didn’t have any sour Skittles, but we were offered extra original Skittles or to just go without. We opted to go without an extra helping, but it was certainly sweet enough.

The rainbow popcorn tastes like Fruity Pebbles, while the mini marshmallows are simple jet-puffed marshmallows. Getting everything in one bite, it’s a sweet and textured, making it taste like actual Skittles-flavored popcorn, with the candy being the predominant taste.

It’s an option for those who aren’t chocolate lovers, but we expect this colorful version will go over well with kids, as it it gets pretty sweet after a few bites.

Willie’s Sweetest Spoon Recipe — $14.99

This prize-winning recipe is made with caramel popcorn, Snickers pieces, peanut M&M’s, pretzel pieces, crushed chocolate cookies, and milk chocolate syrup.

This was the biggest helping of the three, loaded with pretzels, chocolate cookies pieces, and peanut M&M’s. It tastes like a beefed up version of The Mayor’s Marvelous Medley, and is one is for somebody with a sweet tooth for sure, as there’s a lot going on.

The pretzels cut through the sweetness of the chocolate and caramel, but a little more saltiness would have helped here, as it gets really sweet after a few bites. The Snickers pieces melted instantly, which made for a sticky mess, while they didn’t add much to the popcorn mix once they melted.

Overall, it’s a solid choice, but it’s more chocolate than popcorn, where the Mayor’s mix was a nice balance of popcorn and toppings.
