G.H. Cretors Popped Corn Review

I received a variety sample pack free to facilitate this review.

If you have a mother in your household that loves popcorn consider getting her GH Cretors popped corn for Mother's Day. GH Cretors is all-natural and gourmet popped corn. Each batch is popped the good old fashioned way, by hand in copper kettles! They come in these flavors: Chicago Mix, Caramel, Caramel Nut Crunch, Cheddar Cheese, and Kettle corn. A 5ct variety sample pack containing one of each flavor is under $20, available at ghcretors.com.

GH Cretors has been around for a while..."It all began in 1885 when Great Grandpa Cretors invented the popcorn machine and our family began perfecting the art of popping corn. His modern machine appeared at the Chicago Columbian Exposition in 1893, and for five generations we’ve been following in his corn-popping footsteps, taste-testing recipes around our kitchen table."

Variety Sample pack includes:
  • 6.5oz bag of Chicago Mix
  • 6.5oz bag of Just the Cheese Corn
  • 7oz bag of Kettle Corn
  • 8oz bag of Just the Caramel Corn
  • 8oz bag of Caramel Nut Crunch
All Natural…Naturally!
  • They use Brown Rice Syrup (not corn syrup)
  • No artificial flavors or colors
  • No gluten ingredients
  • Made with fresh creamery butter
  • They use natural sweeteners
  • They use locally grown Non-GMO popcorn
  • Certified Kosher
These were all very good and since they were all natural and GMO free I didn't at all regret giving them to my family to snack on. All were large and fluffy popped kettle corn that has a great crunch at first and then melts in your mouth. These are great to have on movie night with the family, on the go, or anytime for a healthy snack food alternative.

My favorite was the Caramel Nut Crunch. This had yummy whole roasted almonds and cashews added to the sweet crunch of the caramel corn. I love both of those nuts so much better than peanuts and the caramel corn was so creamy and buttery. My next favorite was the caramel corn and then the Chicago Mix which was something I had never had before. The Chicago Mix is caramel corn and cheddar corn put in one bag together. The mix was very interesting, but also very addicting. My family devoured the kettle corn and its wonderful both sweet and salty taste. The cheese corn was my daughter, Teela's favorite. She loved the rich cheddar cheese taste in every mouthful. My kids couldn't keep their hands out of the bags when they were opened and brought out to munch on. The bags of GH Cretors popped corn disappeared very quickly and after they were gone my whole family craved more.

A 5ct variety sample pack containing one of each flavor is under $20, available at ghcretors.com. They also have 12 packs of a certain flavor for under $40.
