These Delicious Puffed Corn Snacks are Out of This World - Cosmos Creations #Review & #Giveaway #HolidayGiftGuide2014


If you live in the U.S. like me, I'm sure you've heard of the horrors of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in our foods.  It's hard enough to find healthy snacks for our families but it's been almost impossible to find snacks that are GMO free, until now.  Cosmos Creations is here to break the mold and prove that healthy snacks CAN be delicious!

More Information on Cosmos Creations
Cosmos Creations are Gluten and Trans-fat free and they use only non-GMO corn with no kernals or hulls that could get stuck in your teeth or in the back of your throat.  Best of all, they're amazingly delicious!  According to their website, "Cosmos Creations began as 'Cosmos Caramel Corn' in 2004 in the kitchen of a culinary artisan.  After quickly becoming a local sensation, it expanded from the kitchen to a 5,000 square foot facility, producing over a dozen varieties of the unique caramel treat and gaining distribution across the state of Oregon.  Attending many home shows and other consumer events, providing samples to attendees, Cosmos Caramel Corn developed a loyal following."
"Cosmos's flavor sensation is hard to describe, so maybe think 'old-fashioned tasty treat with a twist.'  It's actually a puffed, baked corn and while there are other baked corn snacks available, Cosmos is the only one that is gluten-free, trans fat free, non-GMO and made with natural ingredients you can pronounce.  Other products have husks, shells or kernels that lodge between your teeth and drive you crazy.  Cosmos however, practically melts in your mouth."
"Some are under the impression that caramel is all we make.  While that is certainly our strength, we have other flavors that may severely test your power of self-control.  Cosmos is handcrafted from a homemade recipe originating in the founder's kitchen."
My Review
I received an entire box full of different Cosmos Creations flavors including two Coconut Crunch, Sea Salt & Butter, Salted Caramel, Sea Salt & Vinegar and  Aged Cheddar & Cracked Pepper.  I will admit, before I opened my first bag I had my doubts.  But after one taste I was hooked and I immediately ran to share this with everyone around me.  These delicious little puffed corn pieces really melt in your mouth and with so many flavor choices, you're sure to find something for everyone!  My very favorite flavors were the Salted Caramel and Coconut Crunch while Josh enjoyed the Sea Salt & Vinegar and Ashton preferred the simple taste of the Sea Salt and Butter.  Here is a list of all of the flavors available: 
  • New Spicy Sriracha - made with a zesty blend of peppers, garlic and a hearty blend of spices, this new flavor is sure to keep your tongue sizzling after each bite.
  •  Sea Salt & Vinegar - with the biggest flavor punch of the line-up, this flavor is fit for even the most serious flavor seekers.  It's a one, two punch of flavor with a fair shake of cracked pepper to create a real knock-out!
  • Aged Cheddar & Cracked Pepper - the sophistication of aged cheddar enhanced by the feistiness of cracked pepper combine to create a match made in taste-bud heaven.
  • Coconut Crunch - Sweet caramel blended with the right amount of coconut oil and a generous sprinkle of pure coconut shred and you'll send your senses on a vacation.
  • Sea Salt & Butter - Traditional flavor with a twist!  Just a touch of buttery flavor with real sea salt, you'll get the best of classic flavors in every bite.
  • Salted Caramel - A little sweet and a little salty but a whole lot of delicious!  Bring your taste buds to life with a fantastic spin on an old classic.
  • Caramel - The original recipe that started it all!  Just the right amount of simple caramel, made to perfection.
  • Cinnamon Crunch - Cinnamon is a Holiday staple and what better way to celebrate than with this amazing blend of cinnamon and sugar infused caramel?
Popcorn is always a big seller during the Holiday Season but this year, try gifting something healthier and much tastier!  Change up your popcorn giving tradition and give Cosmos Creations instead!  If you're interested in trying out any of these flavors for yourself you can find a store that carries them HERE or purchase them directly from their website.  For more up to date information on new products and promotions be sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter!
