479° Popcorn Organic PopCorn Sampler Giveaway & Review

     One of my favorite memories as a child, is when my dad tried to make home made popcorn on the stove.  He couldn't find the lid.  The popcorn started to pop.  He was all over the kitchen trying to catch it .  At 5 years old, it was hilarious.  The memory still brings a smile to my face today, whenever I think about it.  I've always loved popcorn, sweet and savory.


479° Popcorn is hand crafted in small batches in San Francisco, California.  I was sent - The Sweet Tooth Sampler for my review.  The sampler contains these flavors:
  • Fluer de Sel Caramel - 2 - 4oz packages
  • Ginger Sesame Caramel- 4oz. package
  • Chipotle Caramel + Almonds- 4.5 oz package
  • Vietnamese Cinnamon Sugar-2.1oz package
             Each flavor was amazing!! I completely understand why its was featured on Oprah's "O" List, & featured in dozens of magazine.   Fluer de Sel Caramel,  is a nice balance of sweet and salty.  Chipotle Caramel+ Almonds was a bold flavor with the ancho chili flavor coming through at the end.  I only got to taste a few bites of this,  because my husband swiped my box after he ate one kernel.  He loved it!! Ginger Sesame Caramel,  was very unique, a little sweetness, ginger and sesame for a bit of tangy goodness.  My favorite out of The Sweet Tooth Sampler is,  Vietnamese Cinnamon Sugar.  I love anything cinnamon period.  I was so excited to taste this flavor.  I expected it to be extremely sweet.  It was a tad bit sweet.  Not nearly as sweet as I expected,  which was fine with me .  The cinnamon on the popcorn tasted so pure and spicy, paired with the saltiness from the popcorn itself,  was divine.   Each sampler box serves 2-4 people. Each design of the  sampler boxes are upscale and classy looking. Perfect to give as a gift.   I couldn't resist the amazing flavor combo.  I ate the entire box of Vietnamese Cinnamon Sugar in one sitting.  The good news is the entire package only contains 240 calories.

All 479° Popcorn is USDA certified organic.    There are many other flavors available , in addition to The Sweet Tooth Sampler.   For more information and to order directly online visit, 479° Popcorn
