Tiana’s Bayou Crunch and Sweet Popcorn Serenade Debut at Kernel Kitchen for Ride’s Opening

Two new popcorn flavors have debuted at the Kernel Kitchen, located in Main Street Confectionery at Magic Kingdom, to celebrate the grand opening of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. Of course, we had to order both to review.

A double-door entrance of a building with a balcony above, featuring a gold clock sign and ornate lanterns on either side. One door is open, revealing a partial view of the interior and two individuals.

Main Street Confectionery is located in Main Street, U.S.A., right across the street from the Emporium. While accessible through any Main Street Confectionery entrance, the doors facing Town Square lead directly into Kernel Kitchen.

Tiana’s Bayou Crunch – $15.99

Cajun Cheddar Popcorn with M&M’S, Peanut Butter Chocolate Candies, Cheddar Crackers, Pretzel Pieces, and White Chocolatey Drizzle.

All the popcorn flavors at Kernel Kitchen come in a convenient-to-carry container with an included lid, allowing you to snack on the go.

A bowl filled with a mix of colored candy-coated chocolates, pretzels, popped popcorn, and other assorted snacks.

This slightly spicy and savory treat is the right choice for those seeking a little adventure. The Cajun popcorn manages to deliver some kick, without being too strong or hot. The Mickey-shaped cheddar crackers offer a nice crunch to this messy but delicious treat.

Sweet Popcorn Serenade – $15.99

Carmel Popcorn with Praline Pecans, M&M’S Caramel Chocolate Candies, Pretzel Pieces, and Dark Chocolatey Drizzle.

Those seeking something a bit sweeter will find just that in the Sweet Popcorn Serenade. This popcorn loads up on the chocolate and caramel offerings, but the salt of the pretzels balances things out a bit. The pralines were buried deep within our bowl, which caused quite a mess. Overall, this popcorn delivers.
