Rocky Mountain Popcorn Company

 I don't know about you but I love popcorn.  The light airyness of the kernels,the butter, the salt. Yum! It's my go to snack when I want something salty.
  Well I recently heard about the Rocky Mountain Popcorn Company that not only has my salt needs covered but my sweet tooth as well. Rocky Mountain Popcorn Company  offers eight different varieties ranging from salty to sweet and everything in between and the best part is that they are all natural,gluten free and nut free! Before we get into all their great flavors let's get to know a little bit about the Rocky Mountain Popcorn Company:

Our History
Real. Honest. Popcorn!

Rocky Mountain Popcorn Company started over 20 years ago in the eastern foothills of the great Rocky Mountains near Denver, CO. Long known, and much admired, as a great local product, the company grew by reputation until 2007, when it exploded onto the national scene, bringing the bold taste of the Rockies to a nation hungry for wholesome snacks.

When people ask us how popcorn can be real or honest, we say "Glad you asked!” Rocky Mountain Popcorn is real: it’s light, fresh, crisp and big... just like the mountains themselves. We find the biggest, moistest kernels we can, and only hot-air pop them. Rocky Mountain Popcorn is honest: it’s delicately coated with natural flavors, not smothered with pretentious-sounding hoo-ha. You won’t find corn syrup or partially hydrogenated anything in Rocky Mountain Popcorn.Eat just one handful, and you'll remember what popcorn is supposed to be.

 Now that you know a little about the company lets talk popcorn. The folks over at Rocky Mountain Popcorn Company sent me twelve bags of their delicious popcorn in eight flavors to try and tell you about!

                                   Ingredients: Popcorn, canola oil, salt

This is exactly as it sounds,naked! The Naked popcorn is a light,fluffy popcorn with just a hint of salt. I was thinking it was going to taste like cardboard but I was pleasantly surprised by how tasty it was. No cardboard taste, just a great popcorn taste. I also liked how the Naked didn't leave my hands all greasy.
.Ingredients: Popcorn, corn oil (corn oil, beta carotene [added for color] and natural butter flavor), salt

Mmmm...popcorn..... This is what popcorn should be! Light and fluffy with a great buttery taste and just the right amount of salt. This is by far one of the best buttered popcorns that I have had. It beats out any other brand that I have tried. It is very comparable to a movie theater popcorn only it's not hot when you get it and  there are no burnt kernels on the bottom! If you're a fan of butter popcorn you need to try this one!

                                KETTLE CORN
              Ingredients: Popcorn, sugar, dextrose, salt, soy lecithin. Contains: SOY

Not sure if you want something salty or sweet? Well here's the answer to all your snacking problems, kettle corn. The folks at Rocky Mountain Popcorn have nailed it with their version of kettle corn. This is the perfect blend of salty and sweet. When you first toss some of this popcorn in your mouth you taste the sweetness then as you bite into it you get the great buttery flavor. I ate this whole bag without sharing in a matter of minutes! I think this is my favorite out of all the flavors I tried.

                            WHITE CHEDDAR
Ingredients: Popcorn, canola oil, cheese blend (cheddar cheese [milk, salt, cheese cultures, enzymes}, whey, buttermilk, salt, disodium phosphate), and citric acid. Contains: MILK

I love white cheddar popcorn. I normally eat that other brand in the big black bag because it is what I grew up eating and it was better than any other white cheddar popcorns. Well that was before I tried the Rocky Mountain brand! I really like this one much better. I think it is a better popcorn, a lighter,fresher tasting popcorn with an outstanding cheddar flavor! Next time you're at the store and you go to grab your favorite brand of white cheddar popcorn I would think twice and give this one a shot.

                        SOUTHWEST CHEDDAR
Ingredients: Popcorn, canola oil, cheese blend (cheddar cheese [milk, salt, cheese cultures, enzymes], whey, buttermilk, salt, disodium phosphate), seasoning (spices, salt, chili powder, dehydrated garlic, natural flavor), citric acid. Contains: MILK

The southwesr cheddar is an orange cheddar popcorn with a kick! Upon tossing a handful of this in my mouth I was greeted by the typical orange cheddar taste and then BAM! the spicy southwest flavor took my mouth by surprise. It is spicy!! I liked it but couldn't eat alot at once because of how spicy it is, but if you're into spicy snacking I would give this a try.

Ingredients: Popcorn, canola oil, cheese blend (cheddar cheese [milk, salt, cheese cultures, enzymes}, whey, buttermilk, salt, disodium phosphate), jalapeno seasoning (dextrose, organic corn flour, dehydrated jalapeno, onion and garlic powder, salt torula yeast, green bell peppers, vinegar powder [vinegar, maltodextrin], citric acid, natural flavors), citric acid. Contains: MILK

The jalapeno is another white cheddar popcorn with jalapeno flavor.After trying the southwest flavor I was expecting the jalapeno to be super spicy but it wasn't. It starts with a nice white cheddar flavor then gives way to just the right amount of spicy jalapeno taste. The cheddar and jalapeno balance each other nicely.

                           CINNAMON SUGAR
Ingredients: Popcorn, canola oil, cinnamon sugar mix (sugar, cinnamon, salt, sunflower oil, and natural flavors)

Yummy,yummy,yummy. This is a great snack to satisfy your sweet tooth. They took their light,fluffy popcorn and just completely covered it in cinnamon sugar! It doesn't get much better than this!

Ingredients: Brown sugar, popcorn, dextrose, corn oil (corn oil, beta carotene [added for color] and natural butter flavor, salt, baking soda, soy lecithin, natural vanilla flavor. Contains: SOY.

Last but not least is the caramel popcorn. I'm a fan of caramel popcorns but sometimes the popcorn gets really hard because of the caramel coating which makes it tough for me to eat. Not the Rocky Mountain brand though. Their caramel popcorn still has a soft, fluffy consistency even though it has been drenched in caramel.A truly delicious snack!

After trying out all the flavors that the Rocky Mountain Popcorn Company has to offer I have to say that I am truly impressed and would recommend them to anyone who like popcorn.
