Jody and I were at a Yankees game a few months back when Rebecca P., one of the Wingmen faithful, contacted us about a product she wanted us to try. Despite my stupidity about what she meant by "mail you something to try" (see our Facebook page for the comment on April 27, 2011 for what I mean), she was able to ensure that a large bag of Buffalo Supreme popcorn arrived for us to review.
That's a big bag o'popcorn!
Michele's Totally Awesome Gourmet Popcorn operates out of Concord, NH, and was founded by Michele and Dave Holbrook in 2007. This family-run business is not only an American phenomenon, but has been shipping globally too. Michele's offers twenty flavors of popcorn that include Cookies-n-Cream, Peanut Butter Cup, Caramel Apple, Garlic &Rosemary, Cajun BBQ, Dark Chocolate Orange and many others. Their fresh, sweet, savory and deluxe flavors of popcorn were selected for the Official SWAG Bags of the 37th Annual Daytime and Sports Emmy Award Shows of 2010.
The popcorn arrived with a note that says "The Wingmen, Rebecca P. wanted you to give this a try. Let us & her know what you think. Michele" so here it goes: upon opening the bag, the aroma of buffalo wings fills your nose making you think a fresh plate of wings has just arrived at your table. As you take a bite, the flavor of hot sauce and butter fill your mouth and before you know it, your nose is running from the heat. This popcorn is spicy! It was everything I could do to stop myself from eating the whole bag. The buffalo blend seasoning captures the wing flavor quite well and the canola oil seems to act like the clarified butter. The only thing missing is a bleu cheese drizzle, which I can make happen with a quick drive to the supermarket! Check out Michele's by heading towww.michelesweetshoppe.comor by visiting them on Facebook. Michele's Totally Awesome Gourmet Buffalo Supreme Popcorn is Wingmen approved! I can't wait to try some of the other flavors... Cajun BBQ has piqued my interest. Thanks Rebecca P. and Michele for the support!
