This giveaway is CLOSED! Congratulations to Jackie on winning!
I went through a phase where I didn’t eat popcorn. I’m not entirely sure why. I thought I didn’t like it or it just wasn’t on my radar. Then recently it started sounding good, really good. I knew I needed some popcorn in my life as soon as possible. When I went to the grocery store on this popcorn search, I was surprised that there aren’t really that many choices out there. Bags of potato and tortilla chips fill the shelves along with pretzels. But popcorn, it’s kind of left out.
I spotted bags of Angie’s popcorn. I knew I’d seen it before in some magazines and on TV, so I grabbed a couple bags and couldn’t wait to try it. Let me tell you, this is some fantastic popcorn. I fell in love after one bite of the perfectly popped, light and crunchy corn. It also tasted like popcorn. When you go to the movie theatre, it doesn’t really taste like popcorn – it tastes like butter. But Angie’s popcorn allows you to taste the flavorings, yes, but also the corn itself, which has a delightful, mildly sweet flavor.
Angie’s popcorn is made with ingredients you know how to pronounce and without artificial flavors and sweeteners, high fructose corn syrup, preservatives, or trans fats. They are also gluten free and have tons of whole grain. Who knew whole grains could taste so yummy?!? Plus, they are also non-GMO! This is truly a snack you can feel good about eating.
Servings of Angie’s popcorn are generous. Portions range from 1 ¾ cups to 3 cups with caloric values ranging from 140-160. So you can have a plate heaped with popcorn or like 12 potato chips. Easy choice, I say. Plus, Angie’s also makes Boom Chicka Pop, which depending on the variety is either 35 or 37 calories per cup. That is a serious dieter’s dream.
Angie’s was nice enough to send me a sampler pack to check out all their flavors. I really enjoyed them all, but the Sweet and Salty Kettle Corn is hands down my favorite. I could seriously eat the entire bag. It has this glaze coating on it that is perfect, wonderful, crazy good. There is always a bag of Kettle Corn in my pantry. The Sweet and Spicy is another favorite. It has a great flavor with heat that slowly builds and tastes very reminiscent of a bowl of chili. I always really like the Caramel Corn too, but the bag I received seemed a little burnt. I’m sure this was just a fluke, but it was not my favorite. And the Movie Pop. Let’s just say the next time I’m headed to the movies, I’m sneaking this in. It’s tastier and better for me.
Angie’s also wanted to share the love with all of you. So they are giving a selection of their popcorn to one lucky winner. The winner will receive one bag each of Sweet and Spicy Kettle Corn, Sweet and Salty Kettle Corn, Movie Pop, White Cheddar, Salted Caramel, Boom Chicka Pop Sea Salt, and Boom Chicka Pop Lightly Sweet. This means one of you is going to be in popcorn heaven!
