I come from a family who is addicted to popcorn. Like seriously, addicted. I love it all from cheddar to movie theater, to butter sprinkled with taco seasoning. Hey, don't knock it until you try it people! So when I found out about Dale & Thomas, I had to give it a try. It doesn't hurt that The Today Show calls them "The Rolls Royce of Popcorn" either. Check out the video below...
LOVE that they are a small town, small business and that Isiah Thomas, 12 time NBA All Star, is the "other one" behind the name.
They have your traditional flavors like Caramel, Kettle Corn, and Cheddar but their specialty flavors are out of this world! Check it: Black & White Biscotti, Southwest Cheddar Chipotle, Peanut Butter and White Chocolate Drizzlecorn, Cinnamon Creme Drizzlecorn, White Cheddar & Black Peppercorn, Dark Fudge with Praline Almonds, and so many more. Seriously guys, this stuff is AWESOME!
It was right before Easter, so they sent me a pretty cover to go over the box for the holiday. A super nice touch if any of you are looking to give this as a gift. They also included a gift message and a coupon for a future order.
I was SHOCKED when I saw the box on my front door because it was HUGE! I wasn't expecting to be able to try all of their flavors, but when I opened the box, they were all there! They each come in little sealed sleeves that are easy to clip if you can't finish them right on the spot. I dare you not to though.
A picture of the Cinnamon Creme DrizzleCorn. This was probably my absolute favorite flavor, though it was so hard to pick just one. It's been like a month since I've had this stuff but one thought about it, and I can taste the sweet balance of vanilla and cinnamon in my mouth again. HIGHLY addicting.
And because they encourage you to share (though some flavors I just didn't want to) I decided to share some with my dad, his wife, and her nephews. As you can see, the kids LOVED it and so did the adults. It's a perfect family friendly snack, a reward for good behavior, or a seriously awesome gift.
One of the biggest things I worry about with ordering popcorn online is the freshness. I always feel like there is no way for it to arrive crisp and freshly popped, but this stuff did not disappoint. I was so pleasently surprised by the taste, the crunch, and the freshness of the popcorn. The chocolate did not make it mushy or soggy and I, quite frankly, have no idea how they do it. Even the local store up the street can't get it as fresh as these guys can.
Mother's Day is right around the corner and Dale & Thomas are running some specials just for that. Right now, you can save 20% on your order -OR- you can upgrade to 2-Day Delivery for free. Awesome.

I was not compensated in any way for this review. I was given a sampler package of Dale & Thomas popcorn for free to review and my honest opinions were given.
