Rocky Mountain Popcorn Sponsor Spotlight Review




Rocky Mountain Popcorn Company started over 20 years ago in the eastern foothills of the great Rocky Mountains near Denver, CO. Long known, and much admired, as a great local product, the company grew by reputation until 2007, when it exploded onto the national scene, bringing the bold taste of the Rockies to a nation hungry for wholesome snacks.

Their popcorn is light, fresh, crisp and big .. just like the mountains themselves. They find the biggest, moistest kernels they can, and only hot-air pop them. It is delicately coated with natural flavors, not smothered with pretentious-sounding hoo-ha. You won't find corn syrup or partially hydrogenated anything in Rocky Mountain Popcorn.
 
I loved this popcorn the first time I tasted it back a few months ago during the summer and when I knew I would like to have some popcorn in my Christmas Event, I just sent a quick email and the great folks at Rocky Mountain Popcorn were more than happy to join in on the fun!
 
They will be giving away what they call their Small NottaTin sampler which has 7 bags in the collection! So, you will get to sample all the flavors and then you can tell me which one was your favorite. I am a Caramel or Kettle Popcorn girl myself but I know everyone has their own preference.
 
 
This is what the prize package will look like and here is a full description of what the Small NottaTins have in them: 
 
Save with a 3-pack bundle! Each case contains three small NottaTins. Enjoy all of our flavors in this festive eco-friendly alternative to the traditional popcorn tin. Each beautiful gift box includes a 7 bag assortment of our flavors: White Cheddar, Butter, Caramel, Jalapeno, Kettle, Cinnamon Sugar and Naked.
Here are some interesting facts I found out while cruising Rocky Mountain's site about their popcorn:
It's classically American, like no other snack, always a healthy, yummy, bag of fun. Who doesn't say the word popcorn and smile? And popcorn is a whole grain snack, so go ahead and munch, guilt - free. Plus, Rocky Mountain Popcorn is all natural, gluten-free, nut-free and certified non-GMO. Give yourself and your loved ones the very best in snacking; share the love with America's favorite...Rocky Mountain Popcorn!

Popcorn, as a grain, has more protein than any other whole grain. The outer layers of the popcorn, including the hull, are good sources of protein, iron, and phosphorous. Popcorn contains more iron content than spinach or eggs. It also has more phosphorus and fiber than baked chips or pretzels.  
Guess what else popcorn is known for? It is high in antioxidants, most notably, polyphenols – a group of natural plant chemicals that have a variety of health benefits. Polyphenols are the same group of compounds that give red wine, tea, olive oil and chocolate their beneficial
properties.

Oh, mmmmm! My hubby would probably choose the jalapeno, but I would have to go with the white cheddar since I LOVE cheese! These sound delicious!
