We are huge popcorn fans at our house. It serves as a snack. It’s our choice for family movie night and it’s something when it comes to food that we all agree we love!
New to the popcorn scene for us is G.H. Cretors. We gave them a try and wow! They have truly mastered the art of popping corn. There was not an “old maid” in the bag. I suppose this is what happens when you’ve been popping corn for 125 years! Plus, the corn is plump and fluffy!
Here’s some fun trivia. In 1885 C. Cretors & Company was established in Chicago, Illinois when a man by the name of Charles Cretor invented the first large-scale commercial popcorn machine to pop corn in oil. In 1893, Cretors “modern machine”appeared at the Chicago Columbian Exposition. Now, five generations later, C. Cretors & Company, is still family owned and following their great-great grandfather’s recipe and process.
I suppose evidence rests in that the popcorn is All-Natural–no GMOs, no dyes, no gluten and it is kosher! They use real ingredients–the cheese is amazing!
“At GH Cretors we strive to provide you with the “cleanest” most natural product we can make. Therefore, we have chosen to only use ingredients that have not been genetically modified. They are as natural as they come!”
Grandpa Cretor would be proud!
The flavors are tasty. Kettle Corn, Just the Caramel Corn, Caramel Nut Crunch (my favorite), Just the Cheese Corn and then there is the Chicago Mix. I wasn’t sure how I felt about the latter…Chicago Mix is a combination of the Just the Cheese Corn and the Just the Caramel Corn. The mix is indeed tasty. Sweet and salty. Delicious!
