Coastal Maine Popcorn Review and Giveaway!

I'm blogging from home today as I have a day off to celebrate all our great Presidents.  Yay Washington.  Thanks for the day off.  This week begins my 1 year blogging birthday and I have a few things to give away to celebrate.  Today's review and giveaway is from my friends, Julie and Paul's very local and very awesome business.  Located right here in Boothbay Harbor, Maine.

Coastal Maine Popcorn began in Boothbay Harbor in 2008.  You would not believe all the flavors that are available!  I have had the opportunity to try many of them as they are right down the road.  My favorites are the savories--sour cream and onion, cheddar (white and southwest), and dill pickle.  They also have many sweet flavors to choose from like key lime pie, cotton candy and marshmallow.  For Christmas this year, I bought the kid's teachers and dance instructors popcorn as gifts.  Chocolate Candy Cane and Maine Maple were big hits! The flavors that are available in the store change each week, it seems, and they are always adding and trying new flavors.

The popcorn is air popped right here in Boothbay Harbor and then they add the flavor by hand to make sure each kernel has the perfect amount of flavor.

Many different sizes are available:  in bags--small $3.99, large $5.49 and XL $10.49 or decorative tins and you can order directly from their website.  They also participate in fundraising for groups so if you are sick of selling magazines or candy bars, then shoot them an email, and they can help your organization raise a lot of money.

I am going to choose two lucky readers to win 2 small bags of popcorn each.  To enter, please do the following and leave a comment for each:

Follow my blog.
'Like' Coastal Maine Popcorn on FB HERE and tell them I sent you.
Visit their website and tell me which flavors you would like to try.

You can receive additional entries by sharing this giveaway on your blog or FB.  Tweet about them @mainepopcorn and let all your tweeps know about this awesome company and giveaway.  (I really don't know how to tweet so you'll have to do that on your own...  Lame.  I know.)  I'm @ ltlindian--mention me too. :)  I'm also still trying to master rafflecopter so we'll have to do this giveaway the old fashioned way.

I'll take entries until the end of the month 2/29 and announce the winners on that Thursday.  Thank you for reading and make sure you visit Coastal Maine Popcorn!  They are great people with great popcorn!

Wow, those savory flavors....I'm with you on that. If I have to pick, I'd go with Wasabi Soy. Yum. On the sweet side, whoa....Chocolate Caramel & Sea Salt.
