Every time I go to Chicago with my friends and family, I have to stop for a few essential things. My list includes: Chicago Mix Popcorn, Cupcakes from Sprinkles, Cheesecake and of course Chicago Style Pizza. These, are just things I can’t find at home and I want. I even joke that I really only go to Chicago for the food. But not all of it has to be so far away, and now I can actually grab some of the Chicago Mix popcorn at the store a mile from my house.
G.H. Cretors now makes Chicago Mix popcorn and sells it along with their other flavors. The non-GMO and all natural popcorn flavors, are also gluten free – which helps me feel secure about eating them. They sent me a huge box of the snack size bags, and it didn’t take long until they started dwindling… They’d travel to work, in my purse as snack, friends and family made off with a few. But I was happy to see them when I went out to the grocery store the next week – we wont be without them very long.
So what is the Chicago Mix? In case you have never heard of it, it’s a mixed bag of caramel corn and cheddar cheese popcorn. The first time I heard of it, I thought it was the weirdest combination ever. But after trying it – it’s the perfect combination of salt and sweet – and a little crunchy too.
They started in 1885, and I have to say G.H. Cretors knows what they’re doing. Besides each bag was fresh and delicious from the first bite to the last – I loved the flavor options, the healthy ingredients and the fact that it’s certified gluten free. But I have to say, being able to grab a bag a mile away at Meijer instead of driving to Chicago for that snack is an awesome treat! The Chicago Mix rivals all of the ones I’ve gotten when I’m in the Windy City, and is a welcome treat in our house.
