Our schedules have been fairly non-stop this month with both of our daughter’s graduating from either middle or high school. When we do get to spend time together at home, one of our favorite ways to spend family time is watching movies.

Host a fun and tasty movie night with G.H. Cretors popped corn

Since both our girls are in their teens, our genre selection has become more varied, but one thing remains constant. Every movie night needs snacks and our family loves popcorn! When the nice folks at G.H. Cretors asked if I’d like to host a movie night, receive their complimentary movie night kit and try their popped corn I immediately said yes, of course! 

My thanks to them for the tasty treats, the Oscar nominated movies Arrival and Moonlight, the cozy blanket to snuggle with and the “obsessively delicious" popped corn! While I did receive products to facilitate today's post, all opinions are my own. 

When the company representative contacted me, I have to confess, the name G.H. Cretors didn’t ring a bell, so I followed the link she provided to learn more.  I’d love to share their story with you now. 

About G.H. Cretors and how they got their tag line Obsessively Good

G.H. Cretors logo

G.H. Cretors history dates back to 1893 with Charles Cretors, confectioner and inventor, who unveiled the first popcorn machine at the Chicago World’s Fair. Their artisanal popcorn is made in small batches using only the highest quality ingredients which makes it the perfect snack for at home movie nights. Whether watching a new film or an old favorite, nothing pairs better than a bowl of obsessively delicious popcorn. 

Why Obsessively Good?

Great-great granddaughter, Claire Cretors, popped the first batch of “obsessively delicious” flavors four decades later, to what we know today as G.H. Cretors Popped Corn. After trying their Just the Cheese Corn and The Mix (cheddar cheese and caramel), we wholeheartedly agree with Claire!  G.H. Cretors snacks are so good and a bag or two can get gobbled up quickly! You can feel good about serving this snack because they use Non-GMO popcorn and other Non-GMO ingredients whenever possible, and has a line of organic offerings as well. 

You have your choice of nine flavors which include:

  • The Mix
  • Organic Chile Jalapeno White Cheddar
  • Organic Dill Pickle
  • Just the Cheese
  • Just the Caramel
  • Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Organic White Cheddar
  • Organic Honey Butter Kettle-corn
  • Organic Salted Butter 

Yum! All these delightful sounding flavors have my mouth watering. Just the smell of popping corn is enough to get my taste buds ready. We are a nation that loves our pop-corn for sure. Check out these fun popcorn facts and let me know in comments how many you already knew.

Fun Facts about Popcorn from G.H. Cretors:

  • Americans eat an estimated 17 billion quarts of popcorn every year!
  • Nearly 70% of popcorn is eaten at home.
  • Popcorn can pop up to three feet in the air!
  • Popcorn is the official snack of the State of Illinois, where G.H. Cretors is made.

We’ve watched and loved Arrival now and once we can squeeze another family movie night in our schedule, we are looking forward to watching Moonlight. I’m asking my family to nominate their favorite G.H. Cretors flavor.  

I’ll be able to find them easily because they can be found nationwide in Walgreens, Target, Rite Aid, BJs and more. For full retail locations near you, check out the store locator here and be sure to tag them on social channels once you start munching using hashtag #GHCretorsMovieNight .

Make time for movie night this summer:

The school year is officially done for the year as of this afternoon. By Memorial Day, we’ll be in full summertime mode where our pace slows down and we savor and enjoy out time together so why not host a fun and tasty movie night at your house and grab a bag or two of G.H. Cretors for movie time munching?
