A few months ago I was grocery shopping in one my my favorite local grocery stores, Windfall Market, and I cam across boxes of popcorn I had never seen or heard of before. Right from the get go I was intrigued by the delicious sounding flavors I read on the boxes. I debated on whether to purchase at first because there are only 2 bags in each box and costed approx $5 in Windfall. But after reading the box and the ingredients I decided to pick up a box of the Parmesan & Rosemary Quinn Popcorn. The idea of a organic GMO free popcorn (which is hard to come by as most of our corn crops are GMO) that tasted delicious and was all around a better alternative not just for me and my family but also the environment and small business really intrigued me further!
As soon as I got home, I opened the box and got it started. It is not your typical popcorn making process. You place a bag (which has no bad plastics and chemicals on it-yay!) into the microwave and popped away. When it was done I poured the expeller pressed sunflower oil into the bag. then I opened up the 2 additional smaller pouches and poured in the parmesan (from rBGH free milk) and rosemary. The Tiny One and I sat down to watch some Frozen (for the hundredth time) and enjoy our treat and boy were we surprised!
This popcorn is seriously out of this world awesome! I immediately knew this was money well spent! I don't think I will ever be able to go back to eating other popcorn ever again. I returned again and again to my grocery store to pick up other flavors. During the winter frequently brought them into work with me and shared with my co-workers who LOVED them! Even my parents could not get enough and every time they visit, they almost always sneak a pack from me!
Currently they have the following microwave popcorn:
And recently they added Popped popcorn (which I have not tried yet but am salivating at the thought of kale and sea salt!!!
Quinn Popcorn began as a result of the two owners, a husband and wife team named Coulter & Kristy (yay mom & dad businesses!) brought their son Quinn home from the hospital. They set out on a mission to clean up the old microwave popcorns and transform into a healthy snack that people can actually feel good about! They have removed all chemical coatings from the bag so there is no PFOA, PFCs, plastic liners, etc soaking into your bloodstream or your littles. The bag is greases proof and even compostable!
In terms of their ingredients they never use GMO corn, preservatives, or artificial ingredients. The popcorn is organic. The cheeses are rBGH-free. The maple comes from Vermont. The expeller pressed oils are high in omega-3′s.
I haven't told you the best part yet!
Knowing where your food comes from is fundamental, and it’s about time snack companies open up. At Quinn Popcorn they have decided to MAKE A STAND! You can enter your batch number of popcorn on their Farm to Bag Page to learn where each ingredient comes from.
Complete transparency. This has never been done in snacking before!
They want to bring you the best bag of microwave popcorn you have ever had and trust me when I say it really is!
After having such a great experience with Quinn Popcorn, I reached out to the company to share with them just how much I loved it. I really wanted to be able to share with others how good it was and how much better of a alternative this snack is to the regular options of popcorn there are. I asked the company if they might be willing to send me some boxes so that I could include it in a review I was already going to do so that a lucky fan could share this life changing popcorn with me! They were happy to oblige and now ehre we are. So today we are giving away 3 boxes of Quinn Popcorn: Olive Oil & Herbs, Vermont Maple & Sea Salt, and Parmesan & Rosemary! Please make sure to visit them, connect with them, support them! Quinn Popcorn is a company that is passionate about their products and they don't sell out-we really need more people like this in the world-it gives us all hope that the future will be bright!
