This Week's Foodie Freebie: Whirley Pop Gourmet Popcorn Set

Happy Monday to you! I hope your weekend was a good one and you had some culinary adventures of your own. It's currently my last day in Beantown and I'm headed back to Chicago tonight. As much as Boston has been fun, there's no place like home.

Boston: Day 1 - Being on a vacation with girlfriends has kept me from posting much but I did manage to post about our first day in Boston! I'll be posting more about my weekend soon so stay tuned!

Last week I posted about my fun little popcorn popper, the WhirleyPop. I got quite a few comments from friends who mentioned to me that they don't have such a gadget and tend to pop their popcorn in a microwave out of convenience. Well, the discussion inspired this week's foodie freebie I'm giving away...

Perfect for anyone who loves to curl up with a bowl of popcorn and watch movies, this gourmet gift set features the original Whirley-Pop stovetop popcorn popper, which makes up to 6 quarts of theater-style popcorn in just three minutes. The sturdy aluminum pan has a clip-on lid with a stay-cool wooden handle. A turn crank on the handle spins the stainless-steel stirring mechanism, which keeps the corn moving across the bottom of the pan for even heat and oil distribution, ensuring the best popping results. The lid has steam vents to help keep the popcorn dry and crisp, and cleanup is a snap--simply wipe the popper out with a paper towel and store for later use. Three all-inclusive popping kits come included--KettleKorn, Real Theater Popcorn, and Real Theater Less Salt, Less Oil (contains less fat and calories than the original version). A "Secrets to Great Popcorn" guide with instructions and dozens of great-tasting recipes is also included. The popper measures 10 by 17 by 8 inches and carries a 25-year warranty on all moving parts.
