                                 ~ Seattle's Gourmet Popcorn Company ~
 

KuKuRuZa popcorn company began in 2004 in their home using a simple kitchen range and then expanded into the garage with specialty popcorn equipment before they opened their first retail shop. Now they have 18 KuKuRuZa shops in Washington, Japan, Korea, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

KuKuRuZa offers 18 year-round flavors and 2 rotating seasonal flavors so there is something for everyone. They have delicious traditional flavor as well as some very different flavors so trying something new is never an issue. They were kind enough to send me their Flight Carton to review which includes 7 different flavors. I am a huge popcorn fan so I was soooooo excited to do this review. They sent me their amazing Flight Carton which is seven, approximately 2 cup portions and it included their 2 signature flavors Seattle Coffee and Hawaiian Salted Caramel and then I got to choose 5 flavors. I picked Cheddar Cheese, White Cheddar, Jalapeno White Cheddar, S'mores and Classic Caramel.

My all time favorite flavor of course is the Cheddar Cheese. KuKuRuZa Cheddar Cheese is perfection. It's a nice thick coat of cheese and so evenly spread across each large puffy kernel every bite is heaven. Of course I ate all of this flavor first and had a hard time sharing any. The popcorn is super light, fluffy and full of flavor.

I never really ate sweet popcorn other than caramel corn so I decided to try the S'mores since I super love S'mores when I go camping. I was AMAZED at how delicious it was. Oh my gosh!!! It's not just a little drizzle of chocolate and marshmallow like I expected. It's sooo much more!! It has caramel corn that's drizzled in chocolate and marshmallow PLUS pieces of marshmallow coated in chocolate and then there actual chunks of gram cracker mixed it. I can not explain how yummy this flavor is. I'm seriously going to be purchasing this flavor for them on the regular.

I was also very pleased with their signature flavor Hawaiian Salted Caramel. It is made of their sweet Caramel popcorn but then as you are eating it you get the perfect amount of salty after flavoring. It truely is the perfect blend of sweet and salty.

I picked the Jalapeno White Cheddar for my boyfriend to try because he is a fan of the more hot and spicy things in life. He really loved it and ate the whole bag himself. I ate the whole bag of regular White Cheddar and it was seriously delicious. Each kernel is light and crisp and fluffy. It amazes me how they get each kernel to pop so perfectly and evenly and all the same size. It never turns out like that at home. LOL

The Seattle Coffee is excellent if you are a true fan of coffee. It's not very sweet and really does taste just like coffee. This company as I mentioned before does have multiple locations in Seattle so of course they have perfected the flavor of their Seattle Coffee popcorn

I really would love to try many more of there flavors, in particular the Maple Bacon and Vinegar Sea Salt. 

This popcorn makes the most amazing gifts for the holidays or any other occasion you might have throughout the year. It's a great pick my up to send to someone who might need a lift or a smile or just to let them know you are thinking of them.

I think it is pretty cool that they also offer the kernels by themselves for only $6.99. You can choose from two types of kernels, Butterfly Popcorn Kernels and Mushroom Popcorn Kernels so that you can pop your own perfect popcorn at home. They also sell a very sleek KuKuRuZa Popcorn Mug that comes with a bag of their delicious gourmet popcorn.
