I love popcorn! I really do! Gaslamp Popcorn has quickly become one of my favorites! You may remember my reviewing their holiday flavors. Their popcorn is so good that I really can’t pick a favorite flavor! I did recently receive some more samples though and I think their Kettle Corn is one of my favorites! It’s just the right amount of sweet and salty!

What is I told you that you could win a Whole Year of this yummy popcorn? Well…you can! Simply post on Gaslamp social media sites with “I want @GaslampPopcorn!” and you will be entered to win! Now, how cool is that? Keep reading! I will share their social media sites with you soon!

Here are a few fun facts:

o Unpopped kernels are called “old maids” or “spinsters.”
o On average, a kernel will pop when it reaches a temperature of 347 degress
Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
o Americans consume 17 billion quarts of popped popcorn each year. That’s
enough to fill the Empire State Building 18 times!
o According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the world’s largest popcorn
ball measured 12 feet in diameter and required 2,000 pounds of corn, 40,000
