G.H. Cretor's Popped Corn Sponsor Spotlight Review



I think this is about the third time I have reviewed this popcorn and had it in one of my giveaways. I admit it, I love G.H. Cretors  Popcorn and so will you! I got to try their 5 flavors from their Sampler Package and they were kind enough to send me the same Sampler Pack to review so I could refresh my memory. Although, I could never forget how awesome they tasted, it was super delicious to have them again!

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

Did you know that all their popcorns are natural, they are kosher and they are Gluten Free and No GMO'S? I love that because that means more of you can enjoy these awesome popcorns and not have to worry about the gluten. I love that all Moms who can't eat Gluten will finally get to taste some of the best popcorn around.

Just The Cheese Popcorn is made with real cheddar cheese that is melted in special kettles at the right temp and then they pour in on top of the popcorn! Here are some other things you will love about this awesome cheesy popcorn:

**No artificial flavors or colors
** No gluten ingredients
**Made with real cheddar cheese
**We use locally grown Non-GMO 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.


 
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!
 
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!  They make their Caramel Corn just like Great Grandpa did –in old fashioned copper kettles, one batch at a time. They have added lots of whole roasted nuts to the family recipe to bring you the most delicious popcorn you have ever tasted and I can vouch for that!
 
 
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 I have tried in awhile.  They make the Just the Caramel Corn like the one with the nuts, the only thing missing is the nuts!  They use 100% natural ingredients to create the crunchiest, fluffiest popcorn you will ever taste!
 
I love my snacks, especially popcorn to be really crunchy and this one did not disappoint me. I loved sinking my teeth into each delicious piece of caramel popcorn! 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. They chose to mix it up the Chicago way, with rich, creamy, Aged Cheddar Cheese Corn to create the perfect combination of Sweet and Salty.  If you love sweet mixed with salty, then the Chicago Mix is gonna be a hit for you!

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.  G.H. Cretor's make their Kettle Corn with four simple, natural ingredients: popcorn, sunflower oil, cane sugar, and sea salt. It truly is the best of both worlds, sweet and salty at the same time!

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.

I absolutely love popcorn as a snack ( had some last night! ) but the all natural non GMO and Gluten free means my daughter would be able to share some of the snacks with the next door neighbors children who have different food allergies/intolerances.

I like that they have no GMOs in the corn. I'd like the Cheese best.
