Each time I go grocery shopping I see this colorful display that instantly takes me back to the days of going to the circus and having a treat. Popcornopolis has done a great job of making their packaging unique and bright and they have taken that creativity and made some new popcorn flavors that are sure to be new favorites!
Back when I was a new blogger, one of the first companies that I had the opportunity to review was Mamma Chia. Mamma Chia happens to be headquartered in the town over from me, and I see their truck at sampling’s around town.
Since that first review, I have seen them at the Natural Products Expo as well at my local stores. This past year at the Natural Products Expo I hade opportunity to try Mamma Chia‘s new flavors of the Chia Vitaliity Beverages.
Best Binge Snacks While You Binge Watch and a Pipcorn Giveaway
I have a confession – I am awful at watching new movies. For the life of me I am not sure why I am so resistant, but I am. The most ironic part is that 9 times out of 10 I end up loving the movie or show, to then proceed to binge watch until I can no longer see clearly.
The most recent occurrence of this is with Game of Thrones. My husband had read the books and was eager to watch the series, but waited until I was willing to watch. Unfortunately 6 years has passed, and we are yet to watch, so he gave up hope and began spending lunches watching the series. As luck would have it, I finally got intrigued as to why this show was winning all the awards and began watching it on the weekends.
Generally we do anywhere from 5-7 episodes at a time, which makes the need for bingeing snacks that much more important. Here are my favorite snacks to binge on while I binge watch.
When I find a popcorn that is Non GMO, Gluten Free, Whole Grain, Kosher while popping to half the size of typical popcorn and is virtually hulless, I tend to stop in my tracks.
While walking the floor at the Natural Product Expo this year I came upon the bright and colorful display that was The Little Kernel. As I looked at the bags, they were as colorful as the popcorn was flavorful. I knew that I wanted more and wanted to try the other flavors available.
When I was young one of my favorite things to do was hang around in coffee shops. My friends would come in and out, and I could be as social or anti-social as I chose. I loved the treats I could find in coffee shops and would always make a purchase to accompany my coffee treat
When I saw that popcorn maker Funky Chunky had released a line of flavors inspired by local coffee shops, I was not only intrigued, but curious since I was a coffee shop gal growing up.
One of the most difficult things I had to decide each year was what to purchase my dad for Father’s Day. My father is the type of father that has everything he needs, and there are few things that can be bought for him. Through the years I would make him items such as pencil holders and various art pieces. One of his favorite gifts was an album I made that was dedicated to our family dog, and this album is still a favorite.
There is no doubt though as he has aged, it is harder to think of things for him. As I got older there was always one “go-to” that included meat and nut items. I learned that if all else failed i could get him meat sticks and pistachios.
Since this has been a life long challenge for me I thought it would be nice to help you with your Father’s Day gifting with a Nick’s Sticks Meat Stick Assortment for the man in your life!
As I have mentioned in the past we are a snack house – we love our snacks. The problem is that many times we are looking for a semi-heathy snack that we can eat without our hands being dirtied or full.
In our house, both of us spend many hours at our computers, and since we do not like to get our keyboards dirty, popcorn is often the snack that we end up choosing.
The problem is that since we eat so much popcorn, we grow tired of the flavors typically available. When I recently came across a company called Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn and saw their collection, I was interested to give these different flavors a try.
Masala Pop: Indian Spiced Popcorn Review + Giveaway
Often times my review items find their way to me by pure coincidence and other ones are by chance. When I heard that a company I have worked with in the past now is working with an Indian Spiced Popcorn company I was intrigued.
My sister in law is married to a French-Morrocan man, and thus my nieces and nephews are adept and used to the Indian spices. Since our household is not as familiar with these, I decided to seize on this opportunity in hopes that I would be able to recommend something yummy to my extended family. The company I was hoping to share was Masala Pop which makes an Indian inspired line of Masala popcorn’s.
Fill Your Basket with Pipcorn Giveaway – Spring 2017
As I mentioned when I originally did the review for Pipcorn, I was introduced to them via my television. Pipsnacks made an impression on me immediately, since theirs was a hul-less popcorn and was very tasty.
With the Easter holiday approaching, there are many ways to fill a basket. Since Pipcorn had made Oprah’s Favorite Things list twice and touted as easier to digest it makes the perfect addition to upcoming Easter Baskets.
