Popsations Gourmet Popcorn...Giveaway! #partysnacks #MadeinMaryland

This month we decided to spotlight companies that are making amazing products right here in Maryland. Not only do we love Popsations Gourmet Popcorn, but we get to support products made in the USA!

Our first get-together of the season was this past week and I thought our Popsations Dark Chocolate Caramel Drizzle, Classic Caramel and Crabby Caramel Popcorn would be a fun addition to our snack menu. I placed each of the three flavors in are large serving platter and set it out for our guests to have a taste of all three. Not surprisingly, I came around with a platter refill not long after everyone started digging in. It's hard to stop snacking on these!

Dark Chocolate Drizzle Caramel Popcorn: My husband has already put in his request for another order of this Popsations popcorn flavor asap and I have to agree! It's definitely a favorite in our household. The richness of the chocolate pairs so well with the sweetness of the caramel.
**Recipe Idea: Mix the Dark Chocolate Drizzle Caramel Popcorn with mini marshmellows for a fun party mix!

Classic Caramel Popcorn: I have to say I was extremely happy with this caramel popcorn because every single bite tasted fresh and crunchy. I'm really picky about caramel popcorn--especially when the caramel turns to hard chunks within the mix. The process that Popsations uses to make their caramel popcorn is right on the money.

Crabby Caramel Popcorn: This is the most unique popcorn flavor I've ever tried and it was a HUGE topic of conversation at our party. Before moving to Maryland, I didn't understand the Old Bay craze at all. Years later, it's a staple in our family, but it's the first I've ever tried it on popcorn! When I told our friends that Popsations makes it and that it's produced just a hop, skip and a jump away in Baltimore, it became an even bigger hit.

Fun Facts About Popsations
  • Family-own business founded in Baltimore, Maryland in 2010
  • handcrafted gourmet caramel popcorn in old fashioned large copper kettles
  • popped in an electric hot air popper that keeps oils and fats out of the popping process.
