According to Culture Cheese Magazine, cheddar cheese dates back to the 12th century. And seemingly was made by accident when a pail of milk was left in a cave at a village by the name of Cheddar in Somerset, England. The milk had hardened and had transformed into a golden yellow cheese. Fast forward a few hundred years later and cheddar cheese is the second most popular cheese in the United States. In 2019 12.9 billions pounds was produced, and each person in the US consumed about 40 pounds of it!
Our classic Cheddar popcorn has a slightly sharper flavor than the also popular Buttery White Cheddar flavor. This is also a great flavor to use as a mixer with other flavors like Caramel. This cheddar & caramel mix is a very popular mix, made famous in Chicago and is called Chicago Mix or Windy City Mix.

How long will my popcorn stay fresh?
After opening, savory flavors like a cheddar or buffalo ranch will last 7-10 days. A caramel, drizzled caramel or candy flavor will last 3-4 weeks. Bags must be closed tightly and kept in a cool, dry place to remain fresh for that time frame. Drizzled flavors must be kept cool, the chocolate will melt in the heat. Flavors can also be frozen.
Should I order chocolate flavors in the summer?
Warm weather in April to September can cause the drizzled flavors to melt. While this doesn't ruin the product, it will have to cool off to harden again and can then be enjoyed. It is recommended to order these flavors during the cooler time of the year.
