Brown Sugar Cinnamon Popcorn Balls and Gaslamp Popcorn Review

I don’t do a lot of sponsored posts. But when Gaslamp Popcorn offered to send me some samples of their Holiday Flavors for taste testing, I knew my son would be devastated if I said no. That boy loves his popcorn. He takes after his mother.

Gaslamp Popcorn Company is a California treat, available in many of the larger grocery chains and online. Their popcorn is non-GMO and Gluten Free and made here in California. Which makes a healthy snack like popcorn just a little bit nicer.

Gaslamp Popcorn Holiday Flavors


We got one bag each of their four limited edition holiday flavors:

Apple Crumble Pie – cinnamon, sugar and bite of tangy apple

Gaslamp Popcorn Apple Crumble Pie

Pumpkin Spice Pie – loads of cinnamon and nutmeg with just a bit of sweetness

Gaslamp Popcorn Pumpkin Spice PieHoliday Cookie – crushed sugar cookie dust

Gaslamp Popcorn Holiday Sugar Cookie

Peppermint Candy – melted candy canes

We tried each one, plus I took some around the neighborhood to get a few more opinions. All were tasty, but hands down the boys in our court loved the Peppermint Candy. Though the Holiday Cookie was a close second.

As I was checking out Gaslamp Popcorn’s site I noticed they have some delicious recipes and I remembered J had been asking me to make popcorn balls.

They use their Sea Salt and Olive Oil Popcorn for their recipes, but I decided to go with the Pumpkin Spice Pie flavor. If you choose plain popcorn, just add cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.

Instead of a traditional hard caramel sauce, I decided to go with marshmallow for three reasons:

  • melting marshmallow is faster and easier than getting the sugar syrup up to hard crack stage.
  • I knew J wanted to help, and the marshmallow would cool faster so he could shape the balls.
  • we will probably be getting some of the best caramel corn ever from our neighbor in a few weeks anyway.

It took us all of ten minutes to make and the hardest part was telling J he had to wait until after dinner to try them. We took some of the popcorn balls to his teacher and aide. Everyone agreed they were FABULOUS!
