Be on the lookout for CrunchDaddy Popcorn. I got to try some new popcorn creations this past weekend that were made by the owner, Dan Bazis, CCO (Chief Crunch Officer). We met at Starbucks for the second time this past weekend. I arrived a little early so I got myself a coffee and waited patiently for Dan and the goodies to arrive. After a few minutes of sipping on my coffee and people watching, Dan arrived with a big bag of popcorn samples. We sat and spoke a bit and then he began revealing what he brought for me one flavor at a time. The first bag he pulled out was Sweet Butter Crunch, his signature kettle corn. I was happy! The next flavor I tried was Honey & Cinnamon Crunch and all I can say is “wow.” The first crunch delivers a nice cinnamon blast but as you begin chewing, the flavors change on your tongue. The cinnamon becomes milder and then the honey kicks in. I did have some bits of hardened honey stick to my teeth, but that’s what made the honey flavor last longer. Dan gave me a few other flavors to sample, which I did, but I’m not going to mention them because they are in the development stage.
Dan and I also had a great conversation about what makes popcorn gourmet. My definition of “gourmet popcorn” is when you take a simple kernel of popcorn and turn it into something unique and flavorful. Most of the “gourmet popcorn” you see today is already popped and flavored with a variety of ingredients.
CrunchDaddy Popcorn has some great “crunchy” flavor combinations. The Sweet Butter Crunch and the Honey & Cinnamon Crunch are currently my two favorites.
