The sweeter limited-edition flavor, Blueberry Lemon, is a delicious blend of real whole blueberries, lemon pieces and lightly sweetened caramel corn to create the perfect balance of sweet and tart and crunchy and chewy. It is gluten-free and Kosher.

Based in Waukegan, Ill, with roots in popcorn making that date back to the early twentieth century, this mother-daughter-owned company is shaking the modern popcorn world with innovative flavors.

“My great-grandfather invented the popped corn machine back in 1885, so G.H. Cretors is truly a family affair,” says Claire Cretors, president of Cornfields, Inc., which makes G.H. Cretors Popped Corn. “We like to launch new, fresh flavors annually, and I think that’s what keeps this classic product exciting. Every season, popped corn is our blank canvas.”

The company believes that exceptional taste and quality must come together, along with real ingredients to create mouth-watering flavors. That’s why the popped corn is made in small batches, using Midwestern corn kernels and real ingredients such as cheddar cheese and homemade, buttery caramel, stirred by hand in copper kettles.

“All of our popped corn products are naturally gluten-free and whole grain, and they are completely free of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives,” says Cretors. “We handcraft all of our flavors with real, simple, familiar ingredients, and I think that’s what sets us a part from other snacking options. You can taste the quality.”

G.H. Cretors’ signature line of popped corn includes sweet, buttery caramel, real cheddar cheese, and a sweet-and-savory mix of both. The company also offers organic, simpler flavors with just sea salt and olive oil.

Organic Dill Pickle will be available in a 4-ounce bag for an MSRP of $3.99. Organic Chile Jalapeño White Cheddar will be available in a 4.5-ounce bag for an MSRP of $3.99 and Blueberry Lemon will be available in an 8-ounce bag for an MSRP of $5.99. Blueberry Lemon is a limited edition flavor and will be available throughout 2016 starting in June. All will soon be offered in natural food and mainstream grocery stores, or can be purchased at www.ghcretors.com/shop.
