Hello Foodie Friends,
One of the perks of being a food and lifestyle blogger is that on occasion, I am sent really cool gourmet food products to sample and to share my experience with them with each of you! I was delighted to have recently been contacted by the PR firm of G.H. Cretors to sample their very first, newly released Limited Edition collection of seasonal popcorns, including Orchard Apple Caramel Corn, Pumpkin Spice Caramel Corn and Double Chocolate Caramel Corn. This was my first time even hearing about this product and I am so glad that they reached out to me, otherwise, I'm sure I would've never even known about it. (And I'm sure you are glad too!) Each new flavor incorporates the company’s classically-delicious popped corn, which is made the old-fashioned way in copper kettles.
The holidays are quickly approaching and soon images of pumpkin and spice and everything nice will be in the air. This year, Chicago based G.H. Cretors brings these flavors and more to their first-ever Limited Edition collection. Perfect for snacking, entertaining, or gifting, the brand's new artisanal varieties feature indulgently delicious combinations of caramel corn with the most popular flavors of the season: The Orchard Apple Caramel Corn is sweet and tart, combining caramel corn with large slices and chunks of real Granny Smith and Fuji apples. OMG, if you like caramel apples, you're going to love this blend. I totally enjoyed the caramel coated popped corn with the big chunks of dried apples. This was a great combo!
Reminiscent of a pumpkin pie, Pumpkin Spice Caramel Corn is made with real pumpkin, whole pumpkin seeds, large walnut pieces, and an autumn-inspired spice blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. I enjoyed this combo of flavors as well and it made a great day time snack. Again, the company spared no expense including big chunks of walnuts and whole roasted pumpkin seeds. No skimping here.
Double Chocolate Caramel Corn is decadent and indulgent, made with white and dark chocolate, whole almonds, and whole cashews. Okay all you chocoholics out there. This one's for you! I couldn't get enough of this one and it became my go-to night snack. I really enjoyed the combination of the caramel, chocolate and nuts. I also want to add that the size of the kernels (in all their bags) are quite impressive; uniformly large and completely coated with yummy caramel to which some of the pieces adhered and formed little clusters (which I at first found by accident and then later found myself peaking in the bag in search of!)
Each of the new flavors incorporates G.H. Cretors' classically-delicious caramel popped corn, which is made the old- fashioned way: by hand, in copper kettles. Cane sugar, brown rice syrup (a non-GMO alternative to corn syrup with a lower glycemic impact) and creamy butter are heated over a flame to develop a rich, complex flavor. Freshly popped popcorn is then hand-mixed with the caramel to ensure each kernel is perfectly coated with buttery caramel. Like all G.H. Cretors popped corn varieties, the Limited Edition flavors are made with all-natural ingredients completely free of GMOs, artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives and are gluten-free and kosher.
The Limited Edition flavors will be available in 8-ounce bags for an MSRP of $5.99 and will be available in natural food and mainstream grocery stores in September. The Limited Edition Holiday Tin will include an 8-ounce bag of Orchard Apple Caramel Corn, an 8-ounce bag of Pumpkin Spice Caramel Corn, and a 5-ounce bag of Chicago Mix. It will be available in natural food and mainstream grocery stores in September for an MSRP of $19.99. For more information, or to find the location nearest you, please visit www.ghcretors.com. I went to the site and put in my zip code and was thrilled to discover that Publix, Fresh Market and Whole Foods all carry these popcorns.
Until we eat again...
I send you delicious wishes, xo
