The Gourmet Popcorn Factory @ Hamleys


Hamleys opened their first store in Malaysia just earlier this week on 30th November, and what caught our attention on our visit was the range of popcorn available.


One would’ve thought that the popcorn were Hamleys’ original products, I thought so too until I took a bit of time to research on the otherwise huge name and URL seen on the boards.


While the Hamleys name is prominent on the packaging, take a look at the first image and you’ll see it’s “specially packaged” for Hamleys by The Gourmet Popcorn Factory.

Anyway, since it’s on sale at Hamleys so it should be good, right? We took 4 flavors – Cheese, Butterscotch, Candy and Strawberry. Each cup is only RM 6, which is reasonably priced.


Having savored all 4 of the ones we purchased, I find that they’re generally good tasting. The cheese popcorn is of the cheese powder, fortunately it’s no where near the saltiness level of the ones from Garrett. The butterscotch version is just nice to the taste, the butterscotch covers the popcorn just right (as in not overwhelming). The candy popcorn is more on the sweet side and comes with tiny chocolate candy like M&Ms and lastly the Strawberry flavored one is catered to those who like sweet stuff, it’s really sweet – not exactly a good thing if you’re not into sweet stuff.

I don’t fancy popcorns but this brand managed to sway me for a bit, especially the “candy” flavour, while the “strawberry” flavour is a bit too sweet for me. 🙂

RM 6 per cup of tasty gourmet popcorn? Why not? 😀 Grab a few while you wait for your kids to decide on which toy to buy.


  1. HI,

    We are glad that you enjoyed our popcorn. Please also try our caramel flavor. It’s the classic flavor and our top selling flavor. We will try to reduce the sweetness of the strawberry flavor. Thank you for the review and feedback.

    Warm Regards,
