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!

Michele’s Totally Awesome Gourmet Popcorn Giveaway!

I always love supporting other mothers in their business endeavors. That is why I jumped at the chance to try out Michele’s Totally Awesome Gourmet Popcorn. Plus, I love popcorn.

Now, Michele was just making popcorn out of her kitchen and giving it away as gifts. People kept telling her to start selling it, and she finally decided to do it. I, for one, am glad she did. I absolutely love carmel corn, and she has some of the best carmel corn out there! Michele now runs a fully licensed and inspected popcorn kitchen with her family.

We haven’t tried all 20 flavors she has (which includes chocolate carmel, salt and vinegar, carmel apple, and peanut butter cup). However, the flavors we have tried are all excellent. After the first piece of popcorn, Bill handed me the bag and said “you have to try this. It is really good.” He was right (and it was the carmel corn flavor). They really have a flavor for everyone.

Since my family and I love this popcorn, we have arranged for one of my lucky readers to win 2 mini-samplers, so you can try for this awesome popcorn for yourself. Here’s what you need to do:
