  35. Kettle corn is my favorite, but I love any kind of salty/sweet popcorn combo, particularly if there is chocolate involved!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I thought that I invented that (!): mixing the cheese and the caramel in a bowl to snack on while watching a game or movie. The salt and the sweet is a great combination.

    Maybe I heard about Garrett's doing it on Oprah. I would love to taste the real thing.
