KuKuRuZa Gourmet Popcorn Review and Giveaway Ends 11/30/12

I love popcorn!  Seriously, who doesn't?  Is there anyone on Earth that can walk into a movie theatre and NOT buy a box of popcorn?  What about flavoured popcorn?  If popcorn has caramel on it -- I am SO there.

I recently has the extreme pleasure of sampling KuKuRuZa Gourmet Popcorn!  OH MY GOSH!  This is some of the very best popcorn I've ever tasted.  The flavours combos are unexpected but utterly delicious!

I received a sample pack that included Peppermint Cocoa (Seasonal), Brown Butter and Sea Salt, Buffalo Blue Cheese, Hawaiian Salted Caramel (my favourite), Dark Chocolate Kettle Corn (Mike's fave), Truffle Fromage Porcini (To die for), Chicago Style (Caramel and Cheddar), and last but not least, Classic Caramel!

I don't know where to begin.  The flavours are just brilliant.  The popcorn is fresh and light.  Just the right amount of salt -- never overpowering.  The flavour coating is really nice -- not too thin.  You get a burst of flavour in every popcorn kernel.   That's what I like best -- quality.

Things I never though would work for popcorn, did!  Buffalo Blue Cheese?  I was hesitant, but it works! The taste is sharp and spot on.  And who would've thought about Truffle Fromage Porcini?  Mike, who LOVES mushrooms, gave it a big thumbs up!  He ate it all in one sitting -- and saved none for me.  Typical man... ;D

The Brown Butter and Sea Salt was also a BIG hit.  Sweet... salty... melt-in-your-mouth buttery.  *sigh*

This amazing gourmet popcorn will make a fantastic Holiday Gift.  What adult (or kid) wouldn't be tickled to receive a tin of popcorn?  It's a great gift for your boss, employees, hostess, etc.  It's sure to bring a big smile to every face!
