Look out for deliciously crunchy popcorn and quinoa-based snack sticks at the festival this year. We’ve got the scoop – and you can get the samples – from G. H. Cretors Popped Corn and Hi I’m Skinny Sticks.
What’s the story behind the tasty popcorn? It all began in 1885 when Great Grandpa Cretors invented the popcorn machine and our family began perfecting the art of popping corn. His modern machine appeared at the Chicago Columbian Exposition in 1893, and for five generations we’ve been following in his corn-popping footsteps, taste-testing recipes around our kitchen table.
Yum! What are the flavors? Chicago Mix , Just the Cheese Corn, Just the Caramel Corn, Organic Simply Salted, and Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
What is a Chicago Mix? In Chicago, we mix the cheddar corn in with the caramel corn to make a sweet and salty treat. It’s a Chicago classic you should try!
How is it made? We make all our popcorn today the way Great Grandpa Cretors did – in small batches using kettles and natural ingredients. Our products have only the ingredients we love, are gluten free and non GMO. Our Simply Salted and Extra Virgin Olive Oil flavors are organic to boot.
Well, hello! Why are you called a Skinny Stick? Well I’m long and narrow, therefore I’m Skinny! I’m also up to 40% less fat than regular potato chips and I contain no “nasty’s” which means I’m free from artificial flavors, colors and preservatives. I’m non-GMO, Gluten Free, Vegan and Kosher!
What do you contain? Just healthy ingredients, you know. There are no GMOs in me and I’m Gluten Free and Vegan without skimping on flavor.
