The Little Kernel Miniature Popcorn Review

The Little Kernel Miniature Popcorn Review

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.

Nicks Sticks: Father’s Day 2017 Giveaway

Nick’s Stick’s: Stick’s for Dad Giveaway

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!

Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn Review

Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn Review + Giveaway

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.
