Review: Rocky Mountain Popcorn & NottaTin Gift

Did you know there are only 121 days until Christmas?  Yes, I did go there.  I know that may seem far away, but it is never too soon to start brainstorming about unique gift ideas.  When Rocky Mountain Popcorn asked me if I would be interested in sampling their popcorn and getting the word out about their new NottaTin gift, I jumped at the chance!  I think popcorn is the one food that is universally liked by all members of my household!

Check out how cute the NottaTin package is!  Rocky Mountain Popcorn has designed an eco-friendly alternative to the traditional popcorn tin that is made from recycled fiber.  The tin can be filled with any three of their seven gourmet popcorn flavors.

  • White Cheddar
  • Caramel
  • Cinnamon Sugar
  • Butter
  • Kettle Corn
  • Jalapeno
  • Southwest Cheddar

We received samples of the popcorn to review and had a great time working through the varieties.

Hannah adores the Butter flavor and likes to pack it for an afternoon snack at school.  I like them all, but enjoyed a nice bowl of Caramel popcorn after dinner last night.  It was the prefect sweet ending to my meal.

Doesn’t that look fantastic?  I am sure the rest of the bags will not last long in our house.  Jon happens to have a special love for Kettle Corn, so I saved that bag for him.  More about Rocky Mountain Popcorn:

To eat popcorn, or not to eat popcorn? That’s NOT a question!

And popcorn is a whole grain snack, so go ahead and munch, guilt – free. Plus, Rocky Mountain Popcorn is all natural, gluten-free, nut-free and certified non-GMO. Give yourself and your loved ones the very best in snacking; share the love with America’s favorite…Rocky Mountain Popcorn!

Popcorn, as a grain, has more protein than any other whole grain. The outer layers of the popcorn, including the hull, are good sources of protein, iron, and phosphorous. Popcorn contains more iron content than spinach or eggs. It also has more phosphorus and fiber than baked chips or pretzels. Guess what else popcorn is known for? It is high in antioxidants, most notably, polyphenols – a group of natural plant chemicals that have a variety of health benefits. Polyphenols are the same group of compounds that give red wine, tea, olive oil and chocolate their beneficial properties.

Rocky Mountain Popcorn can be purchased in many stores across the US or online.  This would make a great gift for friends and family during the Holiday season or for someone who was newly diagnosed with Celiac Disease and could use a little cheering up.

Have you tried any of the Rocky Mountain Popcorn varieties?  Do you have a favorite?  Have you ever sent popcorn as a gift?
