Two facts: I married into a sports family and we live in Wisconsin.
Needless to say, this past February 6th was a tad on the stressful side around here. With the Super Bowl front and center on TV and the kitchen counters filled with pizza, snacks and desserts, the ups and downs of the game were enough to have my husband and father-in-law on the edge of their seat pretty much from the time Christina Aguilera was making up lines in the national anthem until nearly the last minute on the field.
But we had fun, too. And really, when you have fans that look and cheer like this, how could the Green Bay Packers not play their hardest?
So now that the victory has been sealed and the win has been marked in the record books... what are we to do? Unless the Packers are willing to let the Lombardi Trophy come stay at our house for a while (I'd keep my kids from coloring on it, honest!) it's time to look for a different way to remember the occasion.
Fortunately, The Popcorn Factory, the site that has been providing people with delicious popcorn and gourmet snack gifts since 1979, has the answer. This year it's time to bring home the 3 Gallon Green Bay Packers Commemorative 3-Way Popcorn Tin and celebrate with a seemingly endless supply of flavor.
Retailing for $34.99, this festive tin is just about the perfect thing for my popcorn-loving husband to honor the Packers' status as Super Bowl XLV Champions. With their team symbol on one side, the player roster on the other and scrumptious Cheddar, Butter and Caramel popcorn filled to the brim, he is going to be surprised and thrilled when this arrives. This one is truly for the fans!
As our previous The Popcorn Factory giveaway was a big hit around here, I have no doubt that Big Sister E and Little Sister B are going to be pretty excited to see a tin of popcorn show up as well. We all loved the mix of the three varieties and just how fresh and delicious this popcorn is from the first bite to the last. Yum!
However, by making this commemorative tin so detailed and fun, The Popcorn Factory has actually made it possible to keep the Super Bowl celebration going for long after every kernel of popcorn has been eaten. Why not fill one of their great tins with ice and use it as a roomy ice bucket or beverage cooler? Or fill it with plenty of napkins, plates, cups and silverware to have ready to pull out for your next fun party?
Whatever the occasion, from birthdays to holidays to an entertaining family night to surprising your co-worker, The Popcorn Factory has the crowd-pleasing gifts and great-tasting snacks that everyone can enjoy. As well as all of their flavors of premium popcorn and impressive gift tins, baskets and towers, they back it all with their Popcorn Promise: You and your recipients must be absolutely delighted. Now that's a guarantee!
