I Love POPCORN. I’m kinda a connesieur. Add Non GMO, Gluten Free, and Organic and I’M IN! Oh wait — this is for kids.  Pure Growth Organic started creating organic products to be marketed to kids because they believed more organic and convenient snacks should be available to kids. In particular, kids out of organic baby foods and advancing into regular food. I’m not sure how they did it but they snagged an agreement with Disney for packaging and they’re sold in Disney Theme Parks.

Kids snack. That’s a given. Having quick, easy, healthy snacks available when the begging begins is a godsend.  I gave these to my 8 year old grandson, Ike, and his best buddy Brecken. I interrupted damming the river and catching crawdads to get them to try the White Cheddar Popcorn.

Ike and Breck

They liked it and blasted through the bag at warp speed. Me, I wasn’t too crazy about it. The popcorn tasted kind of stale and wasn’t very fluffy; it had an odd taste to me. But, it’s about the kids, not me. So it was a success.  As far as ingredients are concerned, they’re fine. Organic makes you think that all the ingredients are going to be healthy. The White Cheddar Popcorn has Disodium Phosphate which you’ll find in most boxed mac and cheese, and Natural Flavors that I avoid; they may be considered “natural” but you’d be surprised where they come from and they’re highly addictive so encourage overeating. You’ll find them at Target, Walmart, Amazon (click here to purchase). They have a good selection so cruise around Amazon and give them a try.  Great for lunches.
