Foodie for a Day // CrunchDaddy Popcorn

I had the pleasure of winning some “contest” via Twitter a couple weeks ago and ended up winning a sample of CrunchDaddy Popcorn.  I didn’t really know what to expect but I do know that popcorn is one of my favorite dinners snacks.

They sent me a sample of 5 different flavors:

-Peanut Butter Crunch

-Honey and Cinnamon Crunch

-White Cheddar Horseraddish Crunch

-Ginger Sesame Crunch

-Maple Bacon Crunch*

(*For those of you who know I’m a vegetarian, you know the Maple Bacon one was handed off to others…)

I was super excited when they box came in the mail and had a hard time not digging right in but I decided that I wanted to truly enjoy the popcorn and while a “taste” of each was okay, stuffing my face with all the popcorn in one sitting, was not the best way to enjoy it.

-Honey and Cinnamon Crunch — I think this was my favorite!  I loved the way the popcorn stuck together and it was like eating a mini popcorn ball.  So delicious, chewy and sweet.

-Peanut Butter Crunch — This was the one that I was looking forward to eating the most.  It tastes like kettle corn coated in a light peanut butter powder.  It’s yummy but I couldn’t help finding myself wanting more peanut butter.  I’m the girl you catch eating peanut butter off a spoon, so the more peanut butter, the better in my opinion.  It was still delicious, but don’t skimp on the peanut butter!

-Ginger Sesame Crunch — I wasn’t sure what to expect from this one, but it was so good!  It was one of those that I didn’t really know what to expect from it but once I started eating it, I had a hard time stopping.  It had the chewy, stickiness of the honey and cinnamon crunch that I loved.

-White Cheddar Horseradish Crunch – A pleasant surprise!  I was afraid of this one for two reasons: cheese and horseradish.  I like cheese but my body does not and I’m not sure I’ve ever had horseradish; that was one of those things I grew up avoiding because it doesn’t sound good.  Well, this popcorn WAS good! And turned out to be the only one I ate and shared.  (I ate the others before they could be shared).  And my friend Amy loved it!  I let her keep what was left…there wasn’t that much. 😉

-Maple Bacon Crunch – Now while all the others I can give my own personal opinion, this becomes more complicated because I don’t eat meat.  But while I wouldn’t try this myself because of the bacon, I expected this to be a crowd pleaser and was surprised when some of my friends were a little skeptical.  And it turns out, this got mixed reviews among my “taste-testers.”  Some didn’t care for it while others loved it.  To each his own.

Anyway, at the end of the day, I think CrunchDaddy is on to something!  And after perusing their website, I’m interested to try the other flavors too, especially the Caramel & Peanut Crunch and the CHOCOLATE & PEANUT BUTTER Crunch!! WHAT?!
