G.H. Cretors Popped Corn

Caramel corn, caramel apples, apple pie and pumpkin spice. There’s nothing like food to get you into the season! How about a story on simple ways to enjoy fall seasonal favorites?

With a history in popcorn dating back to 1885, GH Cretors makes its caramel corn the old fashioned way: by hand, in copper kettles. Cane sugar, brown rice syrup (a non-GMO alternative to corn syrup with a lower glycemic impact) and real butter is heated over a flame and then stirred slowly by hand to develop its rich complex flavor and crunch. Using 100% natural ingredients, no artificial flavors or colors, locally grown Non-GMO popcorn, and special, “mushroom” variety popping corn resulting in wonderfully large, fluffy kernels, GH Cretors offers a healthy twist on a delectable classic snack.

I can honestly say that this is some of the best popcorn I have had. One of my favorite foods is caramel corn, and this carmel corn is absolutely delightful. I could easily have sat down and eater the entire bag in one sitting! It literally melts in my mouth. Bill’s favorite popcorn is the Cheese Corn. It was very cheesy! The Chicago Mix gave us the best of both worlds!

If you are looking for a non-GMO snack or just a great snack over, GH Cretors popped corn!

Sante Nuts

Who doesn’t like nuts? If you are looking for nuts with a twist, then Sante Nuts are definitely worth a try.

Sante Nuts are known for tasting fresh and crunchy (which I can agree with). How do they manage that? Well, their spice recipes use all natural quality ingredients. They also only buy the highest quality nut and roast them, by hand, in small batches. Lastly, they use a secret technique that minimizes the amount of oil the nuts absorb during the roasting process. Less oil means less fat, more crunch, and more nuts! Who doesn’t want any of that?

Here are their flavors:

Garlic Almond. Zesty garlic, cayenne and black pepper give these almonds their savory punch. A touch of pure cane sugar makes them irresistible. There is a definite kick to these!

Candied Pecans. These buttery mammoth pecan halves kissed with pure cane sugar are deliciously addictive.

Candied Walnuts. These creamy walnuts kissed with pure cane sugar are dreamily delectable.

Roasted Salted Pecans. Mammoth pecan halves roasted and salted to perfection.

All of these nuts are great. They make an awesome snack. If you are a nut lover, you have to check these out. You can get 25% any order buy using this coupon code: 2011-Blog-172. Happy Eating!

Angie’s Kettle Corn

I love popcorn.  When I found out Angie’s Kettle Corn, was coming to Chicago, I was super excited.

Angie’s only uses 4 ingredients in their popcorn. Yes, only 4. They use popcorn, corn oil, cane sugar, and sea salt. Since they use only these four ingredients, there are no trans-fats, no artificial flavors, no preservatives, and no allergens. It is also gluten free and Kosher certified. Honestly, this popcorn is nothing like any other popcorn you’ve had. It’s sweet yet salty. I don’t know how they do it.  We easily finished off a bag here in one night!  (Let me add, the whole family was eating it.  However, I probably could finish off the bag myself, because it’s that good!)

You can find Angie’s Kettle Corn at SuperValu owned grocery stores, CostCo, Hy-Vee, Lunds/Byerlys, Kowalski’s, SuperTarget, Whole Foods, and online.  Go get some — it’ll be the best popcorn you’ve ever had!
