G.H. Cretors Popcorn Sampler Sponsor Spotlight Review

Yes, it's that time of year again for Valentine's Day and everyone loves getting a great variety of awesome popcorn!  I love G.H. Cretors  Popcorn and so will you! I got to try their 5 flavors from their Sampler Package last year and wanted to have them in my Crazy Cupid Giveaway for Valentine's Day so that you too could try some of their awesome popcorn!

These are the 5 flavors you will get in the Sampler Pack:

1. Just the Cheese Popcorn
2. Just the Caramel Popcorn
3. Chicago Mix Popcorn
4. Kettle Corn Popcorn
5. Caramel Nut Crunch Popcorn

I have to admit that my favorites were the Kettle Corn, Just Caramel and the Caramel Nut Crunch! Of course Mike liked the ones that had a little heat in them like the Chicago Mix and the Just Cheese. We have had alot of popcorn in our lives and caramel always beats them out.

But this one had a little twist on the caramel by adding the nuts and it just seemed that it just made it go from a great popcorn treat to 100% awesome! Give me toffee and nuts anytime and I will be happy! 

Wow, this one, the Caramel Nut Crunch was really the big hit with all of us when we took our first bite, we were hooked but good! This was really an awesome popcorn and we went thru that bag in record time! Oh, and did you know that all of their popcorns have No Gluten and are NON-GMO's! They are also considered all natural and Kosher also. What a great company to try and think of ways to help those of us who have problems with some snacks because of the ingredients! Way to go!
And then if you prefer your popcorn without nuts, then this one titled Just the Caramel Corn is gonna rock your boat! It is one of the better Caramel popcorns in awhile.  They make the Caramel Corn just like their Great Grandpa did- in old-fashioned copper kettles, one batch at a time.  They use 100% natural ingredients to create the crunchiest, fluffiest popcorn you will ever taste!
This bag did not last long in our house at all! Actually, it was the first bag that got ate up in one night! Good thing we don't get this too often or we would be in trouble with our weight big time.
This one was Mike's favorite because he likes all that cheesy stuff so I let Mike have this bag all to himself! He was a very happy camper and enjoyed every last kernel to the end. I think he did sneak a few kernels to Charlie, our Yorkie but not many because I don't need him to get sick eating stuff like that. I have to watch Mike like a hawk when he has something that he wants to share with Charlie!

Here is what is in G.H. Cretor's Popcorns:

**We use Brown Rice Syrup
**No artificial flavors or colors
**No gluten ingredients
**Made with fresh creamery butter
**We use natural sweeteners
**We use locally grown Non-GMO popcorn

I can tell you without a doubt, that if Kettle Corn were left anywhere in the house for me to find, I will and I will eat every last kernel of corn that is in that bag! That is one reason I resist buying it because I know I would eat the whole bag and that is not good for me at all.

Here's a little bit about their History and how they started:
It all began in 1885 when Great Grandpa Cretors invented the popcorn machine and our family began perfecting the art of popping corn. His modern machine appeared at the Chicago Columbian Exposition in 1893, and for five generations we’ve been following in his corn-popping footsteps, taste-testing recipes around our kitchen table.

Today we make all of our products just like Great Grandpa did. We cook all of our caramel in old fashioned copper kettles, one batch at a time. We melt real cheddar cheese to just the right temperature before pouring it on the fluffiest popcorn you’ve ever tasted!  
And we add our perfectly roasted nuts to our caramel recipe at just the right time to bring you the best tasting product you’ve ever had.
We’ve learned a few things in five generations but what has remained the same is our dedication to a great tasting, all natural products that you can enjoy with your family the way we enjoy them with ours.

Looks like a great snack that won't make me feel too guilty afterwards, haha. I'd love to try the Caramel Nut Crunch.
