I ate too great of a portion of this popcorn. Like, probably, half of it. This was over a few days mind you, but, I consumed way too much of it.
It's very addicting, sweet and just screams holiday treat. It makes quite a bit of popcorn, so, it would make a perfect gift for neighbors, teachers, babysitters, co-worker, mailman..anybody!
I am going to whipped another batch of this in a few days for gifts. Just hoping this time, I can restrain myself. :)
