G.H. Cretors Chicago Mix Popcorn - When Sweet Met Salty

Wednesday, September 03, 2014

What is made with all-natural ingredients, is completely free of GMOs, artificial colours, flavours and preservatives, and will knock your socks off because it tastes SO good? It's G.H. Cretors Chicago Mix Popcorn, the perfect marriage of Caramel Corn and Cheese Corn. While I was a little offended that I hadn't been invited to their wedding (I heard there was a buffet table and a caramel fountain...) I was overjoyed at the chance to devour the sweet, salty, crunchy and scrumptious result of their offspring. [NB: I am aware that this may all sound slightly carnivorous and cannibalistic in nature but alas, it has been nearly four weeks since my taste buds were last tantalized by the stuff that I am currently battling ravenous cravings for more.]

Now I could tell you that, in 1885, Claire Cretors' great grandfather invented the commercial popcorn machine. Or that, 126 years later, his great granddaughter is taking the Cretors family business to the next level with popcorn that will leave you drooling for more. But really, there isn't much more to be said than this:

Their popcorn is SO good!
It is clear that they take great pride in creating a gourmet product. They make caramel corn the old-fashioned way: by hand, in copper kettles. They use cane sugar, brown rice syrup and real butter to make their caramel and they use real cheddar cheese for their cheese corn. And yes, they use locally-grown, air-popped popcorn as well. In the end, there is simply no denying that their popcorn is SO good!

In the past, I have always preferred to keep my cheese-flavoured snacks separate from other savoury or sweet snacks but I have had to make a one-and-only exception with regards to G.H. Cretors Chicago Mix. In fact, it was my snack of choice while on our family getaway to Blue Mountain this summer. The problem I am faced with now is that they have Just the Caramel Corn variety that keeps taunting me, beckoning me to unleash it's to-die-for flavour. Seriously, you will find yourself hooked on the stuff almost instantaneously. But don't take my word for it. Go ahead and try some. It will have you on your knees praising the heavens and yelling from the rooftops (go ahead, say it with me):

G.H. Cretor popped corn is SO good!
