Raksha loved it very much.

Among all these flavors, we loved chocolate flavored popcorn and masala popcorn the most.Tomato popcorn and chocolate popcorn should be consumed immediately as it turns soggy soon. You can store the other popcorn varieties up to 2 days and enjoy. Even if it turns soggy, you can reheat it in a hot tawa or cook in microwave oven for few seconds.
