I don’t know about you, but I have already began celebrating my favorite holiday of the year (yes, even more than the sacred day of my birth); Thanksgiving. I have always been a sucker for desserts and I will, to this day, lose control for anything apple…. apple pie, apple cider, honey crisp apples, apple pie gum, apple tortes, apple dumplings, caramel/ candy apples, apple streudel, apple butter, and most of all apple crisp… all of which are quite plentiful this time of year. I know what you’re thinking…. betch needs to get on a #diet.
Well, you could imagine my delight when I opened up the cabinet on one fine November afternoon (looking for something post-lunch to satisfy my sugar craving) when I found Popcorn, Indiana’s Apple Crisp Popcorn. At first glance, I thought I would have some major working out do to after consuming one bite of these crunchy caramel covered morsels, but after scanning the Nutrition Facts to see what kind of damage I was doing, I soon found that this would be MY Thanksgiving Miracle.
You are probably most familiar with Popcorn, Indiana’s White Cheddar flavor from the bag that your college roommate used to hide under her pillow munching away at after a night of drinking. If you think that is good, well, this limited edition flavor is so much better. With only 110 calories per serving (serving size is a just casual 1.5 cups), this is my version of apple crack.
These giant globs of caramel and oat covered popcorn will get your fingers a little sticky, but when you are sitting on gchat thinking about how you are so over this job, the trip to the bathroom to wash off those paws with be well worth it.
