Several years ago my friend Dan introduced me to the concept of kettle corn, I guess it must have been a common snack in his home state of maple syrup and pride (otherwise known as Vermont).
But for me, at least, the idea of slightly sweetened pop corn was as questionable as Crystal Pepsi. Fortunately it faired far better in a personal taste test and I was hooked. It's been a few years since then and kettle corn has faded into the past just like Hey Ya and Beanie Babies. But now it's back thanks to a company called Popcorn Indiana and their huge red bags that line the walls of Whole Foods and Stew Leonard's.
It's a perfect blend of salty and sweet flavors and if memory serves, it's even better than the microwave-able kind I used to get. They also make mustard, bbq, and cheese flavors which make me salivate just thinking of how good they might be.
