Rocky Mountain Popcorn, Holiday Review & Givaway
A little nutrition background that was a complete and total surprise to me. Popcorn actually contains more protein than any other whole grain. It is an excellent source of iron, containing more iron than spinach or eggs and is high in anti-oxidants. I knew none of that!!
In addition to great tasting, healthy snacks they are also working to reduce their environmental impact. The factory facility and headquarters are operated with 100% wind power and all packaging complies with the Sustainable Forest Initiative. Instead of the traditional tins of store brand popcorn you see during the holidays, Rocky Mountain Popcorn has the recyclable "NottaTin".
I received a package of all the different flavors that RMPC offers and let me tell you. YUM! First off, I have to say that I like the packaging. Each bag contains between 1 and 2 servings so it is perfect to snack on without having to worry about portioning or eating until every last kernel is gone because it is just that good.
White Cheddar: My absolute favorite. I swear this just about melted in my mouth. The perfect amount of white cheddar flavoring.
Caramel: They start this from the basics, with brown sugar in a kettle. A handful is all I need to curb my sweet tooth cravings.
Cinnamon Sugar: This is a new one for me, definitely something different, it brings to mind cinnamon toast. Yummy and sweet without being heavy
Kettle Corn: Sugar and salt mixed with fluffy air popped corn. This always reminds me of taking my mom to the fair and watching them make this in the giant iron kettle.
Jalapeno: Definitely different, the hubs loves this one. Just enough tang to make you sit up and take notice but it's not making your eyes water and nose run. A unique taste that really goes on you
Butter: For the traditionalist. Buttery goodness and salt. Who needs more?
Southwest Cheddar: This one definitely has some bite to it. It is a blend of chili spice and cheddar. Hubs ate the whole bag himself in one sitting.
Naked: Just the bare naked popcorn. Still Delicious all on its own!
I really could go on and on about this popcorn. It is the best I have ever had. Each piece almost melts in your mouth, the flavors are fantastic (someone send me some more white cheddar please??) and there are very few of those hard kernels that get stuck in your teeth.
How many times have picked up one of those tins in the grocery store and pawned it off on Grandpa or an office gift exchange? Yeah, you aren't fooling anyone, I've done it a million times. Instead of that stale popcorn in a tin that is going to get tossed, order some Rocky Mountain Popcorn. Your giftee will actually eat it AND like it! Plus, you are helping out the environment by purchasing the "NottaTin"! So go eco-friendly and delicious.
