Guys… I get to review POPCORN!!!


My dreams have all come true, and I can now die happy. You guys, I get to review POPCORN!

Are you freaking kidding me? I’m not sure how I lucked into this little number, but I got a pretty sweet gig reviewing some Orville Redenbacher popcorn.

I’m sure many, many of you already know this about me. But when my Boyf’s traveling with work and is away for a few nights, I actually dive right into popcorn and eat it for supper. Not the most healthy meal by any means. But some days I really don’t feel like cooking and I take great advantage of not doing so when I’m home alone. I may have even overdosed on popcorn, and gotten stomach aches from eating too much of it. But I will always go back to you, Mr. Orville Redenbacher!

I’d show you my candy stash drawer at work, but sometimes my Boyfriend reads my blog and I’d be ashamed to show it ;)

Already, one bag of popcorn is missing. I couldn’t even take a photograph of loot before diving in. 4 bags of popcorn!

  • White Cheddar with Chipotle (already in my stomach)
  • White Cheddar
  • Sweet & Salty
  • Dill Pickle

I was given the choice to choose between four different palettes. Tangy, Rich, Sweet, or Zesty and went with the latter.

The Orville Redenbacher popcorn came in a huge tote bag. The canvas tote was used for our beach towels and we brought along the “missing” popcorn (White Cheddar with Chipotle) on our Canada Day trip to the beach last weekend. Note to self, do not bring your blackberry or any other device you wish to get ruined, on the beach. Boyf’s Ohio State Wallet got soaked lol. How do these things happen?!

The theme was all red, by the looks of it, hey? Check out the items I got!

  • Orville Redenbacher bags to share with friends
  • Red napkins
  • Just Call Me Orville book
  • Silly putty
  • Popcorn bowl (not shown, it was getting washed after much popcorn usage)
  • EOS Lip Balm
  • Etch-A-Sketch
  • Notepads
  • Book pen

My Boyfriend is  quite conscious of what he puts into his body and for the most part we eat fairly healthy at home. He had a bit of a concern that the popcorn had a lot of oil content in it. But he compared it to the equivalent of eating popcorn at the movie theaters (we always go back for seconds by the way). So it’s all okay in moderation right? I’ll try my best not to devour a bag per week. I need to hide them from myself.

What food are you absolutely obsessed with?

Popcorn < Movies

Anyone who knows me, knows that I will never say no to going to a movie. I don’t care what type of movie I see in the theaters, all I need is a bag of popcorn and I’m content.

Sometimes, when Scott’s away at work – I don’t even make myself dinner. I actually have popcorn. That’s terrible to admit, but I really really enjoy it. A lot. Clearly.

In the span of 5 days on the airplane and while I was back home, I watched three movies. On the airplanes I watched: The Vow (nearly cried), The Help (also nearly cried) and I went to the theaters with my best friend from back home, Trevor. We saw The Avenger’s.

I’m not sure that I’ve spoken of Trevor much on my website. I don’t think I talked about him here much mainly because I thought he didn’t read my blog! Well folks. Here is me and my best bud.

This photo is a few years old, but still a goodie. We’re at the local climbing gym back home.

Same night, both of us dancing. We had a “private party” at the climbing gym one year for his birthday and another guys university graduation. :)

Back to my post about movies though.

Apparently it did really well in the theaters, and everyone on twitter had been raving about it. So of course, I didn’t mind going. However it wasn’t what I expected it to be at all. I was excited that Ironman was in it, he’s a funny character. I don’t want to go into much detail about the movie, since my boyf Scott had no idea what the movie entailed and I don’t want to ruin anything for anyone.

I do want to let you know that you should probably watch the previous movies before hand like: Ironman, Ironman 2 (there’s a two, right?), Thor, Captain America annnnd…. what other one was there, if any?

I was semi-lost, thanks to Trev for talking to me throughout the movie explaining things for me, ha!

Have you guys seen this movie yet? If not, will you?
