Giveaway: Gourmet Popcorn

May 28, 2014

Loveland Acres Popcorn
If Ann’s recent post about making perfect stove-top popcorn caught your attention, today’s giveaway will be right up your alley…

Loveland Acres, a family-owned and -operated popcorn farm in Kansas, is offering one lucky SlowMama reader a three-pound sampler of their flavorful gourmet popcorn! The sampler includes one pound each of their Ruby Red, Shaman’s Blue, and Confetti blend varieties. Here’s how they describe the subtle differences:

  • Ruby Red has few hulls and pops up white with a deep red center. A unique treat that retains more anthocyanin and cyanidin than traditional yellow popcorn, it’s tasty and high in antioxidants.
  • Shaman’s Blue is a sweet, nutty popcorn that pops up a brilliant white, in contrast to its darker pinkish purple hull. It also retains more anthocyanin and cyanidin than traditional yellow popcorn, so it’s higher in antioxidants.
  • Confetti Blend is a striking mix of white, red, and blue — a great way to experience all of the tasty varieties for anyone who can’t decide which one to try!

If you’ve never tried an heirloom popcorn variety before, now’s your chance. They’re packed with flavor, and many varieties have added health benefits — plus there’s something extra fun about eating colorful popcorn. Ever since I tried one last year, I can’t go back! I definitely wish I could win this giveaway myself.

To enter, leave a comment below telling me your favorite way (or place!) to eat popcorn. If you follow me on FacebookPinterest, or Instagram, you may leave an extra comment each (for a total of four possible entries). This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only, and I’ll announce the winner next Tuesday, June 3.  Good luck!

I enjoy it popped in oil in a pot, as Ann described the other day, but sometimes I’m lazy and use an air-popper. These gourmet varieties sound intriguing.

Family movie night!

Hot air popper, melted butter and salt on top. My kids eat this as an after-school snack!

My favorite way to eat popcorn is the kettle corn variety – I’m a sucker for sweet!

My favorite popcorn eating episode recently occurred when the electricity failed at our house for the whole evening. Luckily the gas stove still worked. We popped a whole 10-quart stockpot full of popcorn, laced with melted-on-the stove butter and salt. We cuddled up with the kids on the couch and ate by candlelight.

Hmmm…I follow you on Facebook, so I left a comment there… did you mean the additional comments to be here, or there?

Favorite time/place is with the extended family around Grandma/Pa’s campfire. Since her post, I am dying to try it on my stove top, but sounds like these heritage brands are the way to go!

I grew up in Africa eating popcorn sprinkled with dried powder milk, my kids love it as well!


16 Mariam May 29, 2014 at 2:42 am

Any gathering event around the tv is an excuse to pop some! lol


17 Linda May 29, 2014 at 2:43 am

OMG! I would love to try their sample! We love to experiment with popcorn over here, and thanks for the chance!

I love to munch on popcorn while curled up with my boys. Even if they are both almost 6′ tall!!

I love the home grown Loveland Acres popcorn! Such a great flavor! Once you try it you’ll never go back to any other popcorn. I like mine with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on it. Try candy corn and a hand full of’s great!


23 Lori Parker May 30, 2014 at 11:40 am

Popcorn anyway is great. When I learned how to make kettle corn, oh my that became one of my favorites. But I think I just like it anyway I can get it. I am so glad you found Loveland Acres popcorn. They are truly the best.


24 Mary May 30, 2014 at 2:41 pm

Hot and salty! These look really good.


25 rachel May 30, 2014 at 3:21 pm

I love buttery popcorn at the theater.


26 Lynette May 30, 2014 at 7:01 pm

The living room of course, watching a movie with family, oh and the dogs love it, too!


27 Anna Marie May 31, 2014 at 3:46 am

I love buttered popcorn with Parmesan cheese!

My favorite way to eat popcorn is with 2 hands :+)

I’m a popcorn lover. I’d pick it any day over a sweet treat. I like it at home when I’m watching tv, fairs, ballgames etc….
