"The only bad thing about this snack is you can't stop eating until it's gone! My youngest loves to receive a batch in her college care packages."
"We make this at Christmas and everybody goes crazy over it....it's addicting!!! Love this!!!!!"
"I love all different types of popcorn and this one looked so festive I had to try it and it was so good. I will be making this one again and again!"
"This is excellent recipe for the holidays. I give it out to friends and family."
"My mom used to make this for us in the 60's and I had lost the the paper that she had it on so was glad to see it posted here, it is really very good, I will be making it often, this makes nice gifts and looks so pretty in glass containers."
"I made this several years ago so when my daughter needed a new treat for her class bake sale, she asked if I still had the recipe. I came to the website and found it immediately. We doubled the recipe and made over two dozen bags. She said they sold immediately and people are begging her to make it again for the next sale. The hardest part is not eating it all before it goes in the bags!!!"
"I wrote to Taste Of Home asking if anyone had this recipe and my question was never printed. I happen to find it today and am so excited. I use to make this for years when my husband was first married nineteen years ago and gave it out at Christmas. Everyone loved it. Then I missed place my recipe and could not find anyone who had it. After all these years- I finally have the recipe again to give to my children. Thank you so much!!!"
