G.H. Cretors–My New Favorite Snack & Giveaway #sp

GH Cretors

I like food. Who doesn’t. I just don’t have any vices in regards to food. I don’t have to have one certain food in the house all of the time and I don’t get cravings for a specific item. And I’m only talking food. Milk is my one weakness so it doesn’t count.

So I approached GH Cretors to see if my boys could try out their popcorn. I’m just not a popcorn kind of person. My boys love it. In fact, Doodle loves it so much, one time he ate so much he puked. True story. I’m ok with the stuff and if I have it, I prefer the caramel kind.

Popped corn

Well, as any good blogger knows, to give an accurate opinion on a product you’re reviewing, you need to sample it. Ugh, why do I take this blogging stuff so seriously? So, I tried it.

I’m in trouble, folks!

You know how you get popped, flavored popcorn and it’s hard or has a somewhat stale taste? That is not even CLOSE to this popcorn! Let me warn you, you try this popcorn, and you may finish the entire bag in one sitting.

Just the Caramel Corn

Of course, I started with the Just the Caramel Corn. The boys opened the Chicago Mix and Just the Cheese Corn. My first bite was heaven. I knew right then, all will power had just left the building. As a WAHM, who needs bonbons when you can have Just the Caramel Corn? I knew I needed to try the other flavors, but I wasn’t very willing to pass around the caramel corn. Begrudgingly I did.

I was actually surprised that I liked the Just the Cheese Corn. I’m not a fan under any circumstance of cheese flavored popcorn, but this one made me a believer. I think the biggest thing that made a difference was that it didn’t taste powdery? Like someone hadn’t just shook some powder over it. This tasted like real cheese combined with popcorn.

Just the Cheese

And then it was the best of both worlds with the Chicago Mix! Who’d have thought to bring them both together in one bag, but YUM!

GH Cretors Mixure

Ok, so there are all of the yummy descriptions and pictures, but there are other healthy features to GH Cretors that are important to share:

  1. They’re All Natural
  2. No Gluten or GMOs
  3. They’re Kosher

And get this, in 1885 Great Grandpa Cretors created the popcorn machine! He created it, so you’d imagine they’ve perfected it and to me, it makes sense as to why their popcorn is so amazing!

Thankfully I found out they’re at Harris Teeters in my area so I can get my GH Cretors fix any time I need.

Now’s your chance to give your taste buds an absolute treat. I’m doing a giveaway and don’t say I didn’t warn you. You’ll never want to buy a different popcorn again!

I would like G.H. Cretors' Carmel Nut Crunch because I love carmel and nuts.

I learned that GH Cretors has chosen to use brown rice syrup (instead of corn syrup) for many reasons. Besides the fact that brown rice syrup has a wonderful crisp sweetness, unlike refined sugars it has a low glycemic value. This means that it doesn’t cause a sudden spike in blood pressure or a sugar “high” after it is consumed. Its composition is 50% soluble carbohydrates, 45% maltose and 3% glucose. The glucose is immediately absorbed and metabolized, maltose takes from an hour to an hour and a half, and soluble carbohydrates take 2-3 hours to be metabolized and energy released. This results in constant supply of energy spread over a long time rather than a sudden rush.

I learned G.H. Cretors uses Brown Rice Syrup instead of Corn Syrup for several reasons. One, because it contains a good source of minerals like magnesium, potassium and manganesea
