HDG- #review & #Giveaway: Topsy's Popcorn

In my house popcorn is one of the food groups. It has been known to appear for various occasions such as parties, play time snacks, and even lunch or dinner. Normally I'm talking about the throw it in the microwave, put it in a bowl butter popcorn. I'm not much on buying flavored popcorn unless the boy scouts come around selling it. And what is the reason for that? One,  because I love it so much that I would be as big as a house if I ate it as much as I wanted and two, I normally don't find a flavored popcorn that I really like. That is until Topsy's Popcorn!

Since 1929, Topsy’s has used an original recipe that gives its popcorn an old-fashioned great taste. In fact, Topsy’s was the first company to sell its popcorn in the circular tins that we’re used to seeing popcorn in today. Back in the day, the oil used to pop the popcorn came in the tins, and Topsy’s decided to recycle the oil tins to package up and deliver popcorn. Who knew?!?

Today, more than 75 years after that first kernel was popped, Topsy’s provides the same quality taste online. With four flavors to choose from — butter, cheddar cheese, caramel, and cinnamon — there’s bound to be a flavor that will delight everyone’s taste buds. On TopsysPopcorn.com, you can choose from a variety of popcorn tins as well as flavors to quickly and easily find the perfect gift for a variety of people your gift list, from family members to co-workers, a child’s teacher, neighbor, friend, or all of the above! 

My Take: I was excited to get the popcorn in the mail to review but I was shocked to see what I actually got! I know how expensive these popcorn tins can get (yes I've bought some from fundraisers before) so I was expecting a little sample box or bag. Imagine my surprise when I saw this:

That box is big enough to fit a small child. Trust me, he tried (you can see the actual tin above his head):

The tin looked like this on the outside:
And this on the inside:

Yes it was loaded to the very top with cheese, caramel and cinnamon popcorn! It just happened to arrive a few days before my family arrived for Thanksgiving so we used this to munch on Thanksgiving Day during the evening as we watched the football games. My grandmother and the kids LOVED the cheese popcorn. My brother and I are both fans of caramel but the real shocker was the cinnamon. I had never had cinnamon popcorn and now I'm addicted. It's like red hots on popcorn. YUMMERS! I'm the only one who really likes it because it's a little spicy but that's great! More for me!! Enough about taste. Here's the real test. I hate that popcorn kernels always get stuck in your teeth. However, this is the first popcorn that I have ever had that doesn't get stuck in your teeth and I'm telling the absolute truth! I'm one of the biggest fans of Topsy Popcorn now and will be sharing the rest (what is left) of the popcorn at a mommy party I'm having next week. (I'm actually contemplating eating some now as I write this....hmmm...Cinnamon...).
