G.H. Cretors Organic Simply Salted And Extra Virgin Olive Oil Popped Popcorn Review

I received FOUR large bags of popcorn from G.H. Cretors! Two bags of their Simply Salted Organic Popped Popcorn and two bags of their Extra Virgin Olive Oil Organic Popped Popcorn. ALL FOUR BAGS are GONE! GONE, I tell ya! I was trying to take pictures for this post and kept eating what I poured in the basket. LOL I was praying and hoping I would have pictures to show you! I did not know ORGANIC could taste this good. I didn't know popcorn could taste this good! Can you tell how impressed I am? Throw away the Orville Redenbacher! Throw away the Pop Secret and any other brands you may have! THIS brand is the ticket! Do I still have to do a review? Of course! Let me get to it. The G.H. Cretors family INVENTED the popcorn machine! I did not know that. There's a wonderful video on their website. They've been in business since 1885 and they make all of their popcorn in small batches. The inner lining of the popcorn bag is like a foil and keeps everything fresh. I loved BOTH flavors that were sent to me. Their popcorn is so light, you could eat an entire bag in one sitting! The popcorn wasn't heavily salted (I hate that). The olive oil  was not heavy WHATSOEVER! Everything was LIGHT, FLUFFY & TASTY! No greasy fingers! No oiliness! Oh wait! And get this...NO PILE OF UN-POPPED KERNELS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BAG! Several years ago, I cracked a back tooth on a kernel! A cracked tooth with exposed nerve is NO JOKE! I wouldn't wish it on anyone. So I'm so glad these are fully popped. This popcorn is fabulous. It's off the chart's supersweet and you guys know how picky I am! These are the only organic flavors they have, but they do have regular (should I even call their popcorn regular) popcorn flavors, such as Chicago Mix (they're out of Illinois), Just The Cheese, Just The Carmel Corn, and they have a Sampler Pack if you can't decide. Go to 'Store Locator' and locate where you can find this brand. Cause it's super delicious. You can also order online. Their organic line of popcorn features only organic non-GMO popcorn, 100% organic oils, and pure sea salt. They're also Kosher! I'm so glad I tried this fabulous brand. This has taught me that not all popcorn is popped equal (or tastes equal)! LOL Have a poppin' day everybody!

Popcorn and a movie, it cant get better than that. I always get some when I go to the movies (which hasn't happened in ages), but the store bought was always disappointing.

yum! I developed an appreciation for popcorn after I met and married my husband. Before then, I just didn't eat it enough! haha

Love popcorn!! But, I so dislike when people eat through movies, hahaha!! Like the chewing sound drives me bonkers..there's a name for it, when chewing drives to crazy, but I forget what it's called. So, I like to eat before the show and then be in silence. I barely go to the theatre, hahaha. These sound lovely. xx

I'm a fan of popcorn and finding ones that taste good and are fully popped can be a challenged. This brand sounds really terrific and it's cool that they carry such a fun range of flavors. I'll definitely have to see where they're available in NYC!

Hahaha....Kim, you crack me up! This would so happen to me if I have to review anything chocolate:D


Everything organic? Sounds great! Salted popcorn is not my fave one but I really enjoy popcorn (and nachos) while watching movies! It's totally a must! ;-DD Hope you back tooth is ok now?!

Cee said...

No pile of unpopped kernels at the bottom of the bag? I am sold! That is my pet peeve about all popcorn, ha ha. I guess the family that invented the popcorn machine would be the ones who knew all the secrets! I have to try this. Thanks for a great review Kim :)

Unknown said...

Popcorn is my favorite snack Kim!! These sounds so good and that's awesome they are organic! All the flavors sound delicious!

Que delicia

Samantha Mariko said...

ooo popcorn with olive oil sounds so good!

jo said...

These sounds so good Kim! The only time I eat popcorn is at the theatre. I'm not a popcorn fan.

Just wanted to let you know about another Chinese superstition Kim. You know how I mentioned on my blog that my cousin is getting married this weekend. Anyway, my aunt did not invite my sister (the one who had a baby recently). Traditionally, two happy occasions (wedding and new baby) cannot collide, so my sister have to stay home. Sad, isn't it? Just wanted to share with you. Anyway, have a great week my dear friend!

xoxo Jo

Oh yum I love popcorn! And now I want some, haha!

A few years ago there was a farmer's market out the front of the office every week, there was a guy who made the BEST popcorn. I still have very fond memories of it, even after we relocated away from the markets to another building. It was just SO GOOD!

I haven't had any for a long time, but this is one of those snacks I simply adore, even better - when it's organic (which we don't seem to have around here...) x

Mmm olive oil and salt sound like a perfect and delicious popcorn combination! Thanks for the recommendation! We LOVE popcorn and it can be so stale in the package so I'd love to check this out!

This LOOKS SOOO good Kim and I Love microwave popcorn, but always need something a little healthier so I would definitely try this. The lightly salted ones sound so good and this is a perfect snack for summer. They don't really have popcorn in Europe - not even at the movie theater so I have to go to Expat hotspots to find it. hehe


nerline said...

Hi Kim! I came back to enter the giveaway. My daughter has multiple allergies and cannot have butter. It looks like the EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL would be perfect for her. I cannot believe you did not take pictures of you with your shoes off, sitting on the couch, and enjoying these goodies!

Sara said...

OMG Kim I saw these in the store, and they looked good! I don't eat popcorn much, but ever since Kyle has been working at Whole Foods, he wants to eat healthier so I will have to pick some up for him. Awesome review!

Miss Val's Creations said...

These sound divine! I just learned how to pop popcorn on the stove last year after growing up in the microwave generation. I love being able to season it how we want it.

Tina Bradley said...

Kim, I am a popcorn fiend! I adore anything with a salty taste to it--love this more than sweets. These choices all sound fabulous! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

Jane said...

I always love good popcorn! Gonna have to definitely try it Kim! Thanks :)


I've not heard of this brand before, but I love popcorn, and usually put coconut oil or olive oil on it. It sounds great, most especially since you said there's no un-popped kernels at the bottom, that always get me, haha. :) Thanks for sharing.

Unknown said...

The olive oil version sounds amazing! I had never thought to pair the two together before but now it makes total sense, it seems like it would add a nice interesting twist. It's incredibly hard to find organic food around where I live since we only have the normal chain stores Walmart, Target, etc so I will definitely check up on this brand :D


ALLIE NYC said...

I use to work at a movie theater and every Friday night this guy would come in and buy a big tub of pop corn TO GO. He just loved it. But it was not particularly healthy. This sounds I have seen this before but never tried it. I will have to soon.


Chic Delights said...

This popcorn looks so healthy and yummy too.

MaysaAndSunshine said...

My goodness you make me want to run and grab a few bags to munch on. I eat popcorn from time to time but i don't like those with a lot of butter on them. The healthier alternatives that are available on the market are pretty good. I must check this brand out. Thank you for the review Kim.

Fashionably Idu said...

Not oily and no unpopped Kernels at the bottom of the bag. Thats a winner in my book cos I love popcorn so much. It's great that this comes in different flavors as well. Great product! http://fashionablyidu.blogspot.com
