PRODUCT REVIEW: Dark Fudge Chocolate Chip Kettle Corn

Today while I was making my usual weekly shopping visit to Clark's Nutrition, my eye caught a food display right there in the middle of the store. Lots of good things were displayed like almond butter and bread. However, however, however, my tastebuds woke up even before placing a piece of kettlecorn in my mouth.  Just the words "dark fudge chocolate chip kettlecorn" made me HAPPY to think that there is a possibility of something really good in store. After trying the almond butter and bread, I immediately tried the kettlecorn that was laced with chocolate goodness. I LOVE kettlecorn and I LOVE chocolate to begin with, but never had the two as a combo. Believe me, I was NOT disappointed at all, not even a teeny, tiny bit. This treat is decadent with a capital D!!! Popcorn Indiana has done a great job to create this product. Oh, how I love this new find! On one hand, it's pricey for just one bag. That's probably a good thing, so that none of us will be tempted to buy it all the time.

Now let me advise you, do NOT open the bag until you get home. You will definitely need a plan of action, because believe me, you will want to eat the entire bag in one moment! If you plan on trying this when you get home, scoop out 3/4 of a cup and put the kettlecorn bag hidden in a shelf in your kitchen where you absolutely cannot see it. Three-fourths of a cup will provide 70 calories, 30 mg sodium, 1 gm fiber, and 6 gms of sugar. Let this be your serving for the day. Enjoy it really, really slowly.  Chew it very, very well and bask in the decadent experience of this simple, but very scrumptious treat.  I have to warn you that it can be very addicting, so practice mindful moderation with this totally, totally, totally delicious version of kettlecorn! Enjoy!

Are you a popcorn fan or are you a kettlecorn fan?

This stuff is amazing. I discovered it by accident last week at my local Walgreens. I went back yesterday to buy another bag & they were all out. While shopping today at a Walgreens in another city, I bought them out (they only had 6 bags). I haven't decided whether to give them away as Christmas gifts only to those who I love most, or to hide them away and hoard them for my own secret stash.
