479 Degree Popcorn

Hello Everyone!

Yay!!! I'm back blogging again! You have no idea how much I missed all of you, my dear blogger friends! I just needed some time off from blogging to get organized in the past month.

Last month, my blog was selected as the winner for the Foodie Blogroll "comment to win a 479 Popcorn-organic popcorn sampler" contest. Thank you so much, The Foodie Blogroll!

I was super excited when I received these wonderful organic popcorn samplers from 479 Degree Popcorn. To be honest with you, I am not a great fan of popcorn but my son really is! I was very happy to win this contest because I thought my son would enjoy them.

The first night, my son picked the "Black Truffle + White Cheddar" as he is a big cheese eater and he loved it so much. My husband tried some and he said it was GOOD. I tried a little and it wasn't calling my name!

The next day, I opened up the "Chipotle Caramel + Almonds". Oh My Goodness! It was delicious or what! I loved the rich flavor of organic caramel with chipotle chili, the yummiest and crunchiest toasted almonds that I wished I could have more, YUM! My son and I were fighting over this bowl... "Mom! you said this is for me only... you said you don't like popcorn... you said you wanted to try just a little....." Oops!

Later on, I started to feel greedy over these flavorful popcorn and I announced that I loved them and they were MINE! I didn't remember when I opened the third and the fourth ones which were "Madras Coconut Curry + Cashews" and "Ginger Sesame Caramel". We ate them so fast and I forgot all about taking photos, the only thing I remembered that I got to eat most of the coconut curry one because my son didn't like it that much. I think they should have put more cashews in that bag, it would have been perfect!

We saved the best for last, it was "Pimenton de la Vera" which has a wonderful aroma of smoky Spanish Paprika, organic tomatoes and onion, YUM! I still remembered the taste of smoky, sweet and salty all at once. Mmm...Mmm!!!

Believe me, you don't need to be a big fan of popcorn to enjoy this gourmet treat!
