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
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?!
