As summer approaches I know we are all hosting, or being invited to, or just having our own little summer celebrations and people are always thinking of what snacks to bring. I think G.H. Cretors Popped Corn is a great idea. Take it with or just have it on your own, they’re quite tasty! Don’t forget it’s a nice little gift for the special Mom in your life!
I received a sample box of 5 different flavors, namely: “Chicago Mix”, “Just the Caramel Corn”, “Kettle Corn”, “Caramel Nut Crunch”, and “Just the Cheese”. The first bag to go in our house was the “Caramel Nut Crunch”. The popcorn was evenly covered in caramel, big puffy popcorn. The nuts were cashews and almonds and they were also covered in caramel, SO good! The next was the caramel one. I was a little surprised at how bright orange the cheese was, but it was nice that it didn’t seem to “powder off” the popcorn like some cheeses do. The one that I didn’t like too much was the Chicago Mix, it was cheese and caramel. I am sure people do love this, but it wasn’t for me. So all I did was eat the cheese popcorn first then enjoyed the caramel – the flavors didn’t rub off on each other so it was easy to do.
G.H. Cretors is a family run business. And in this case run by the moms! Claire Cretors (popcorn president) and her mom, Phyllis, are carrying on the corn popping tradition of great-great-great Grandpa Cretors who invented the popcorn machine in 1885.
The ingredients they use today are all natural: basically popcorn, sugar and sunflower oil – free of GMO’s, artificial colors and flavors. Bonus for me and my family is that there are no gluten ingredients either. And made by hand in copper kettles!
This variety pack containing one of each flavor is under $20 at ghcretors.com it’s a GREAT deal!!
Our sample arrived in a cute box that I know we will use again, it’s easy for the kids to put their toys in, or color on, or just generally play with. You know how kids are with boxes!
