The interesting fact about this popcorn is not only that it's all natural and completely free of GMO's, artificial coloring, flavoring and preservatives, but also that it's made by the ancestor of the inventor of the first commercial popcorn machine! Great Grandpa Cretors of Chicago invented the popcorn machine in 1885 and now his great granddaughter Claire is starting her own legacy by making high quality popping corn.
I've eaten lots of average popcorn in my time. You know the kind that is small and dense and not fully popped, with lots of hard kernels and no real corn flavor. That's why I really appreciate this popcorn from G.H. Cretors! I love great popcorn and that's exactly what this is! The cheese popcorn is not too salty, like most cheese popcorn, because it's made with real cheddar cheese melted onto popped corn! It's not a powdered imitation cheese mixture! And you won't find any unpopped kernels! G.H. Cretors popcorn is so addictively delicious because their popcorn tastes like is was popped just before you opened the bag!
My favorite G.H. Cretors variety is the 'Chicago Mix' because it's a blend of their caramel corn and cheese corn in the same bag! It is pure sweet & savory perfection in every handful! Check out their website for more interesting facts and find where G.H. Cretors popped corn is sold near you, by using their store locator. You can also order their popcorn online.

I'm thinking about making Popcorn Cookies using their caramel popcorn! I think that would be a very cool cookie! Or maybe I can create a savory/sweet cookie using their cheese popcorn...yum! Stay tuned for those results!
So next time you're in the grocery store look for G.H. Cretors Popped Corn. Or maybe order some for yourself online! You won't be disappointed!
