Sweet Popcorn Treat for Sweetest Day

Who thinks up holidays?  Many suggest that most come from some greeting card brain trust. But, as far as we are concerned at Cravings Gourmet Popcorn any reason to celebrate is a good one. Coming up this month on October 19th is Sweetest Day. This is a time to acknowledge someone in your life that fits that description.  The thinker uppers of this holiday had in mind two groups of individuals…those that are helpful and kind, and those that were often ministered to by the helpful and kind – the sick, aged or orphaned.

In honor of Sweetest Day we have reached into our recipe box for a very sweet combination that will warm your heart and delight your senses.  We call it Sweet Strawberry Chocolate Drizzle.  It starts with our finest popcorn in a variety that will hold up to the sweet chocolaty drizzle. The popcorn is flavored with strawberry and then our high quality dark chocolate drizzle tops it off.  Scientist say that both strawberry and chocolate are good for your heart. As if you needed any help feeling good about sharing such a delightful treat!




We have selected a great tin to package this treat. Once it is in the tin it is made ready to quickly ship to you and/or your sweetest along with our freshness guarantee.   Order now for an on time fresh delivery. We’ll make sure it gets there in time for Sweetest Day, or pick-up fresh in-store at Old Town.

While you are thinking about that someone in your life that needs to be acknowledged for their sweetness, visit the Cravings Facebook Page.  Look for the Sweetest Day post pinned to the top of the page and tell us who you are nominating and a quick story about their kindness in the comments.  Encourage your friends to visit and like your comment.  The nominee with the most individual likes will receive a special gift from Cravings Gourmet Popcorn.

Cravings Going Green

St. Patrick’s Day celebration ideas from Craving’s very Irish blogger, Katie Donovan.

Hmmm, imagine the crisp bite of crème de menthe combined with the sweet luscious taste of chocolate drizzled on top of our finest popcorn.  That’s what is in store for you beginning March 1st at Cravings Gourmet Popcorn.  You don’t need to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day for this special treat.  But, if you come in wearing green you can get $1.00 OFF our crème de menthe chocolate drizzle popcorn.

What is your St. Patrick’s Day tradition?  Do you wear green ---hoping to get kissed or pinched?  Eating your share of corned beef and cabbage or drinking more than your share of green beer?  Or – if you must party, how about creating a mashed potato bar party? 

That’s right a mashed potato party! I thought of this party several years ago and it was a real hit with my guests. It is easy to do …make one or two big batches of mashed potatoes.  I like serving one with super smooth mashed potatoes whipped with sour cream and another lumpier version made with redskin potatoes and garlic with some skins included.  Use your imagination to prepare lots of different toppings for your bar to dress up the potatoes.  Serve the potatoes in over-sized martini glasses (you can rent the glasses) for a little pizzazz. Enjoy the company of your guests while you feast on this ultimate comfort food.  Finish your party with some sweet treats from Cravings, like the crème de menthe chocolate drizzle popcorn!

Whichever way you decide to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, be sure to make it a safe one.  Looking forward to seeing you at Cravings!

Cravings Gourmet Popcorn is located in Old Town Lansing, the hippest area of Lansing, Michigan.  Cravings Gourmet Popcorn can be purchased online and shipped to anywhere nationwide.
