Thatcher's Popcorn Dessert Bar by Nancy Liu Chin
Well, I decided it would be a simple pleasure to enjoy. Now only time will tell if Thatcher's becomes a regular, monthly, household expense. On the positive side there are much more expensive and less healthy habits I could take up... On their website the description for the white cheddar popcorn reads:
"This is so cheddary and flavorful it's hard to believe it's healthy! Try eating only one of these!Um, by one I hope they mean one bag, not one piece, because that's how I've been eating mine. LOL. Hubby called it. As soon as the box arrived he said "You'll be eating it a bag at a time!" He knows me so well.
I Ordered Chedder, White Chedder and Caramel Corn
But perhaps the coolest thing was that tasting Thatcher's caramel corn made me reminisce all the way back to when I was a little kid. When I ate the first piece it reminded me of when my cousin Tami lived near a mall that had a caramel corn shop. Caramel corn isn't easy to find in San Jose and the kind that comes in the three-flavor-tins you can buy at the drugstore at holiday time doesn't begin to compare to the flavor of fresh, crunchy, candy coated caramel corn.
So one bite and *woosh* it was like taking a trip back in time. I remembered what the shop looked like and ooooh the sugary, caramel way it smelled and how they used to sell caramel corn faces on a stick...
If you live out of the area there is a nominal shipping fee that becomes a better deal as you order more popcorn! If you live in the Bay Area you can place an order on Thatcher's website and I guess judging by your zip code it will also give you the option to pick up your order in person if you're local.
