What Better Way to Say "I Love You" Than with a Popped Passion Popcorn Cake This Valentine's Day! OMG, They Taste Amazing!!

Disclosure: I was sent a sample from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Are you a popcorn lover, or know someone who is?  If you love popcorn like my family does, then you have to know about Popped Passion.  A recently launched company from a friend and fellow mom entrepreneur, Maria Bailey, she offers a line of handmade popcorn cakes that are to die for.  

Last week, I came home after a long day out with the girls and found one of her Popped Passion popcorn cakes waiting for me on my doorstep.  I knew she was sending a sample for me to try with my family, but with the craziness of life, I totally forgot about it, until I saw the box.  Even though it was late, and we had just finished dinner on the road, after driving to and fro to the girls' homeschool classes, I thought this was just the right treat to have to unwind, and it sure was!

I am lucky I got in a few photos of the cake before we all dug in, because as soon as we started to eat it, we couldn't stop. It was that good!  

I had requested Swedish fish and chocolate (how could I not, being a chocolate lover), and left the rest up to Maria to surprise me.  

And, boy did she impress me with her talents yet again, as this popcorn cake was almost too good to eat...but, how can you resist this popcorn treat.

Back when I was a kid, I used to sneak a bite of my Dad's stash of popcorn balls he would be given at the holidays.  Even though we tried multiple times to make our own popcorn balls, they never came out right.  Either the popcorn would get all soggy or go stale, or we added too much marshmallow that it was too sweet to eat.  But, after reading the label of one of my Dad's popcorn balls, I was surprised of all the artificial ingredients added -- I guess that all these unrecognizable ingredients is what gives them that extra long shelf life and sweet tooth fix.  Knowing that these weren't good for you, my Dad stopped eating them.  But, whenever holidays rolled around, he would always bring up his love for popcorn balls, which went back to his own childhood.  

So, when Maria reached out about her Popped Passion Popcorn Cakes, I jumped at the opportunity to try one out for myself.  I was curious to see how they tasted, and if this could be just what we have been looking for all these years, to surprise my dad with.  While these popcorn cakes are covered with sweets and drizzle, they aren't overly sweet like you would expect by looking at it.  Yes, you taste the candies (which you can customize based on your personal likes), but the popcorn, which is freshly popped and oh so fluffy, is the true standout.  I couldn't get over how the popcorn tasted fresh and wasn't weighted down by the add-ins and drizzle.  And, once you take a bit, it really is hard to stop, as you will crave this delicious snack, which is perfect for sharing.  It reminded me of monkey bread I used to make a long time ago and serve at gatherings, in that you people can just come and grab a piece here and there, and each piece is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
