~I received Angie’s Boomchickapop and seeds to grow our own to facilitate this review. Opinions and stories are my own.~
What could be greater than having some of the best organic popcorn you’ve ever had from the store? Growing your own of course!
First of all, Angie’s Boomchickapop is amazing! I used to be one of those people that didn’t like popcorn unless it was covered in butter, but her simple snacking recipes have honestly changed my perspective! I don’t have a lot of pictures of the bags of popcorn because they didn’t last that long between all of us and well… we kind of ate it all before I had a chance!
What I really love about Boomchickapop is all the things that it isn’t. It is GMO FREE, Cholesterol Free, 0 High-Fructose Corn Syrup, 0 Trans Fat and Gluten Free! It is a snack that I actually feel good about giving to Tot.
There are currently 9 different flavors of Angie’s Boomchickapop, 3 of which are my absolute favorites! See if you can guess which ones!
- Sea Salt
- Lightly Sweet
- Sweet & Salty
- Caramel & Cheddar
- White Cheddar
- Salted Caramel
- Sweet & Spicy
- Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn
- White Cheddar Kettle Corn
If you guessed the Lightly Sweet then you are right! Although I tend to have a super sweet tooth, I really love the light touch that makes it a wonderful airy snack to share with your kids.
After Tot and I had some boom, I asked him if he wanted to grow his own popcorn. Boy was he excited! Of course that excitement wore off a little when he realized it wouldn’t just magically pop out of the ground, but after a few weeks he had really gotten into gardening his crop.
We found a little place outside to grow our corn, but we also put two seeds in a milk jug to follow the progress inside. This was a little science project for Tot and it was easier for him to water the jug everyday than the crop outside.
Corn grows really fast! It’s only been about 5 weeks since we started and it’s already over 4ft tall! Pretty soon we are going to be ready to start on the 2nd half of our project!
