In 1885, Claire Cretors’ great-grandfather invented the machine that forever changed snacking: The commercial popcorn machine. 126 years later, his great-granddaughter is writing the next chapter for the Cretors family. G.H. Cretors is women-owned and operated by the mother-daughter team of Claire and Phyllis Cretors in Waukegan, Illinois.
I had seen the Chicago Mix Popcorn at our local Costco and thought, that is an awfully huge bag if we don’t like it. Sometimes, with cheesy popcorn, it just tastes funny, so I didn’t want to risk it. Then I received a sampling from G.H. Cretors (funny name; every time I hear it, I think of dinosaurs!) I kid you not; all but the kettle corn was gone in a flash! I have since been back to Costco to make not one but 2 more purchases of the Chicago Mix bags. Here are all of the flavors they offer:
Just the Cheese Corn: they melt real cheddar cheese in special kettles for that great taste
Just the Caramel Corn: made in old-fashioned copper kettles, one batch at a time
Chicago Mix: Mix up the Chicago way with rich, creamy, aged cheddar cheese corn and caramel corn to create the perfect combination of sweet and salty. This was our favorite!
Caramel Nut Crunch: lots of fresh roasted almonds and cashews are added to the caramel corn. This was great, too; I love the crunch of the fresh nuts.
Kettle Corn: four simple, natural ingredients: popcorn, sunflower oil, cane sugar, and sea salt. Our family has never been big on Kettle Corn; while it was just as fresh as the others, we just didn’t care for the taste.
