Product Description:

The prize in this caramel corn is the flavorful burst of fresh pistachios …

Tea Suggestion:

This caramel corn would be good with just about any tea, I think, but, for a real pistachio treat, try it with some Pistachio Ice Cream flavored Green Tea from Butiki Teas – and this time of year you should serve it iced, of course!

What I Think:

It took a while for me to get to try this yummy caramel corn.  It was not in my Boardwalk Box when I first received it (I received the spiced almond caramel corn, but not the pistachio) … I wrote a note to Foodzie and they sent me a fulfillment box (Foodzie has EXCELLENT customer service!) but the box contained more of the spiced almond as well as a bag of the lightly salted pistachios but not the pistachio caramel corn!   While I can’t really complain because I was happy to get more of that tasty spiced almond caramel corn as well as those amazing pistachios, I still really wanted to try this Pistachio Caramel Corn.

So I contacted them again, and they sent me another box, this time with the Pistachio caramel corn.  (did I mention how much I love Foodzie’s customer service?)

This is very much like the spiced almond except that this does not have the spice – and while I do like the flavor contrast between salty, sweet and spicy, the lack of spices here allows me to better explore the dimension of the caramel flavor.

As I mentioned in my review of the spiced almond caramel corn, what I really love about this caramel corn from CC Made is that each bite is an adventure.  I can really taste the butter!   These are rich, buttery, and sweet.  Each popcorn kernel is light and popped up to its fullest and fluffiest, to give each bite a light crunch.  The pistachios add to the crunchy texture and give this a deliciously satisfying nutty flavor.  The saltiness starts out light and develops, and by the end of the bag I notice a “salted caramel” kind of thing going on with it that would rival even some of the finest salted caramels I’ve tasted.

My Final Thoughts:

I LOVE this caramel corn.  I think that for my daughter’s stocking this year, I might get her some of this – she loves pistachios and caramel corn.  Basically, I’ll get her some of this, because it gives me an excuse to get myself some of this!   My only complaint is that the package that they included in the Boardwalk Box was small … and it was so good that it disappeared too quickly!   This is seriously yummy stuff!
