What does “Handcrafted Small-Batch Popcorn” mean?

  • It means exactly that. We make a lot of popcorn but that doesn’t mean that it is a mechanical process. In fact, we make our caramel from scratch using the same recipe that we have used for generations. We pride ourselves in keeping our process small and hand-crafted.

Hey! It looks like there’s no caramel in my Cretors™ Cheese & Caramel Mix! Where’s the caramel?!

  • Shake it! Mix It! That’s what we say – we make sure that there is caramel in every bag of the Cretors™ Cheese & Caramel Mix. The caramel corn is heavier than the cheddar cheese corn and it sometimes settles to the bottom of the bag. Give it a shake or two for the perfect blend of salty n’sweet!
