Great Western Products reminds you that April 6th, 2015 is National Caramel Popcorn Day!

The day celebrates the combination of Caramel and Popcorn. Caramel corn is an American confection made of popcorn coated with a sugar or molasses based caramel candy shell. Typically a sugar solution or syrup is made and heated until it browns and becomes thick, producing a caramelized candy syrup. This hot candy is then mixed with popped popcorn, and allowed to cool. The process creates a sweet flavored, crunchy snack food or treat.

Some varieties, after coating with the candy syrup, are baked in an oven to crisp the mixture. Mixes of caramel corn sometimes contain nuts, such as peanuts, pecans, almonds, or cashews. The combination of caramel and corn dates back at least as far as the 1890s with the strong molasses flavor of Cracker Jack, an early version of which was introduced at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893.

To help you celebrate, Great Western Products is offering some special National Caramel Popcorn promotions. Contact Mark Hamilton at 256-575-2473 or markh@gwproducts.com for more information.
