When you’re in the mood for a snack what do you crave? Are you more on the healthy side and your think about fruits and veggies or are you way on the other side of the spectrum and you’re thinking Twinkies, cookies, and chips? Or maybe you fall someplace in the middle of those two categories. Into the “It’s not that bad for you” category. Snacks that I would put in this category are popcorn, pretzels, baked cheese curls, crackers, chocolate covered fruit, and many more. These are like the borderline snacks. They usually don’t have too much sugar or fats in their ingredients but they usually have other types of carbs.
One snack that I don’t have to often but enjoy it when I do is popcorn. Now I’m not talking about any old type of popcorn, I mean the gourmet flavored kind. My all time favorite popcorn is the kettle type popcorn that you can usually find at street fairs and carnivals. It’s the popcorn that is big and fluffy and cooked in a giant kettle. If its not kettle corn then it must be gourmet popcorn or movie theater popcorn with lots of butter.
Actually right now as I sit here I’m trading off between typing this blog and dipping my hand into a gallon tin of Brooklyn Popcorn. They recently sent me a gallon tin of their mixed gourmet popcorn.
The popcorn flavor that I got to try is called the New York Mix. It’s a mixture of white cheddar cheese popcorn and sweet caramel popcorn. I have to say its quite addictive and causing me to take longer than usual to write this blog. The combination of sweetness from the caramel and cheesiness from the cheddar corn is very pleasing to the palette. At first I was like why didn’t they separate the two types of popcorn like most other companies do? But now I’m glad that they didn’t. Okay you know what I need to put the lid on this container and get it away from my computer otherwise it will be finished. Wow this popcorn is tasty!
Brooklyn Popcorn started out as an idea amongst some friends who all live in NYC. Brooklyn Popcorn became the first gourmet popcorn truck in the world. The truck looks like this.
That’s right this company started out as a popcorn truck. For those of you that live in NYC and want to get some popcorn directly from their truck you can check out this link to locate their truck. As I’m writing this their truck seems to be located in downtown Brooklyn on William Street. Too bad I’m not in Brooklyn right now or I would pay a visit to their truck. Oh wait, I have a whole tin, I mean half of tin of their fresh popcorn right here in my house. Remember when I started writing this it was almost a full tin. If you’re worried about freshness you could stop that right now. This tin was delivered 3 days ago and it still tastes great. I’m really glad they are selling their popcorn on the web, that way maybe some of my readers can try it out for themselves. The price may seem a little bit much (almost $30 for a gallon size tin plus $10 shipping fee for any size popcorn big or small) when you compare their popcorn to most store bought brands but it is well worth it. Okay so now I officially put the lid on my Brooklyn Popcorn tin. I think I might need a popcorn intervention though, because I really want to take the lid off again. Oh and one more thing I liked about Brooklyn popcorn bucket, it is good looking, big and now I’m looking forward to actually re-purpose it. I already know what I am going to use it for. I’m going to give it to my 7 year old and she will keep her headbands and clips in it organized.

The Brooklyn Popcorn sent me their New York Mix gallon size tin for free to write this review. Regardless all opinions are mine and honest. I received no compensation.
What is your favorite popcorn flavor?
