Popcorn is more than just a movie snack. I am a huge popcorn fan and I love having it anytime and anywhere. It is a relatively healthy snack and tastes so good. There are also many different ways to prepare popcorn, adding different flavors and toppings to it to make it a desert or light snack. I recently obtained a sample pack of full size bags of G.H. Cretors Popcorn.
The first thing is to explain the history of the company of G.H.Cretors. They are a company that uses all natural ingredients. They also use brown rice syrup in their popcorn instead of corn syrup, this is because it adds a “crisp sweetness to the taste, has a low glycemic value, and it is good source of minerals.” (ghcretors.com/our_passion). On top of that, the products are also Gluten Free and Kosher. The Company G.H.Cretors began in 1885 with the invention of the popcorn machine (invented by Great Grandpa Cretors). From there on, the same cooking style with copper kettles is still used today to make this delicious treat. These products can be found locally at Kings Grocery Store, Shop-Rite, and Fairway (Check http://www.ghcretors.com/store_locator/ to find the closest store to you). You can also purchase it online, they even sell a sampler pack that includes two ‘Just the Caramel Corn’, two ‘Chicago Mix’, and one ‘Just the Cheese’ mix.
I love the story behind this brand of popcorn; it is all local corn and made with natural products, not fake sugars and unhealthy ingredients. The first type of popcorn that I tried was the “Just the Caramel Corn”. This corn is like a desert. It is so crunchy and sweet. It tastes so fresh, like I just took popcorn and melted caramel on it. It can be a snack or a great evening treat to get some sweetness before bed. I love the fact that this is all natural too, because I do not have to worry about tasting a weird after taste or artificial flavors. As I said, it tastes so real, so I know it is natural.
The second one was “Just the Cheese Corn”. This is popcorn with red cheddar cheese. It is another delicious mix of corn and the cheese. One thing I love is reading the ingredients on this, it is popcorn, sunflower oil, cheddar cheese that includes pasteurized milk, cheese culture, salt, and enzymes, cream, sodium, and salt. I recognize everything that is included, nothing is foreign language to me like some bagged snacks have included. The cheese taste is so enjoyable and fresh. It leaves a great taste in my mouth and every time I ate some I wanted to pop in more. I felt like I could too, because they are about 85 calories per cup.
The third one was a combination of the two. It is called “Chicago Mix”. This is the Caramel popcorn and the Cheese popcorn mixed in one bag. At first I thought what an off combination. Then I tried a handful, and I was blown away. I actually liked it better than each alone! It is an outstanding combination of two flavors. They mix together well to create this super popcorn. It is a nice combination because the caramel has such a sweet flavor and the cheese has a robust taste so together they balance each other to have this smooth taste.
It is unbelievable how great this popcorn is and how it is made with natural ingredients. Highly recommend this, especially around the holidays. It is a great treat to bring to parties, or grab the smaller individual for a snack on the go. You can also give them out to trick-or-treaters on Halloween, give as a Fourth of July snack, or even a movie; a smart and natural snack.
Speaking of parties, I decided to bring this to a get-together at a friend’s house. Everyone loved it and could not get enough of it! A successful company, fresh taste, and big hit!
