KuKuRuza Gourmet Popcorn Review! 1/7

I know this is going to sound as terrible as it gets but with New Years creeping up on me I've been doing more splurging than usual which in my case means I've been drinking a glass or two more of wine than usual, eating more candy bars than I should and stuffing my face full of greasy junk food. Why? To prepare myself for those New Years resolutions I'm so fond of making and never going through with.

In preparation for the New Year and my resolutions I just gorge myself for the last few days of the year and then promise myself that I'll stick to my diet/exercise resolutions starting the 1st of the year. I do it every year but this is the year I plan to get fit. I'll be 25 in June so I want to make the best of my remaining 20's.

Today's review is for a company that I've worked with in the past and who has done their best this year to supply me with a cure for my sweet tooth and to also help pack in those last few days of glutton eating that I've been doing. Let me introduce to you, KuKuRuza the Gourmet Popcorn Company!

"If you have a discerning palate and a zest for life, we have something for you. Crafting gourmet popcorn is a passion for us, and you wont find anything less than our best available every day. Nothing gives us more pleasure than finding the finest quality ingredients and transforming them into unique and delicious treats. Our goal is simple: to be the worlds best gourmet popcorn company by providing our customers with the most delicious and unique popcorn varieties."

For my review the wonderful folks over at KuKuRuza sent me a fabulous four pack of their sweet popcorn to try and like my previous experience with KuKuRuza I wasn't disappointed and set to work on what would become my last sweet themed gorge-fest.

My box filled with KuKuRuzas fabulous offerings included their 3 seasonal flavors and one of their most popular flavors:

  • Hawaiian Salted Caramel 
  • Eggnog Brandy
  • Pumpkin Spice Pecan
  • Peppermint Cocoa

    Let me just say, there wasn't a happier family than mine one that box of goodies was opened. We didn't bother with formalities but just tore open the bags and started stuffing ourselves. I don't think there was an occasion that wasn't marked with some of KuKuRuza's delicious popcorn..that is, until it ran out anyways. Even those weird folks in my home who aren't big on sweets were caught with their hands in the bags more than once.

    My favorite? You should know by now that I'm not good with choices but after giving this some serious thought I've decided that although I'm a huge fan of Eggnog the Peppermint Cocoa turned out to be my favorite of the bunch. The Peppermint went so well with the Cocoa and wasn't overpowering like I had originally worried about when receiving the flavor. Honestly, it was the first to be opened and the first to be found empty less than a handful of hours later.

    I could go on forever about KuKuRuza and the brief love affair I enjoyed this holiday season but instead I'll give you the news you've been waiting for.
