Halfpops Popcorn, a Revolutionary Product

hen I heard about Halfpops I just HAD to try them.  My mom and I have eaten countless bags of popcorn over my childhood, and still today.  We both always loved the little burnt kernels in the bottom of the bag. 

When I saw Halfpops and read about their niche in the world of popcorn I knew instantly that I would love them.  I just didn't know how much!

Halfpops was kind enough to send me some samples of the 'butter and sea salt' as well as their 'aged cheddar' recipes.  I must say...it was love at first bite.  I am trying to NOT EAT every single kernel they sent me and "save" them (which isn't going very well).  I plan on ordering CASES of them for Christmas presents (and maybe a case or two for myself ; ) ).  They ARE that good. 

I thought the aged cheddar is my favorite, but who knows, each time I eat a crunchy kernel, I its my favorite.  I love them all! 

The aged cheddar individual packages

The butter and sea salt individual packages.

The kernels are crunchy and don't get stuck in between your teeth like regular popcorn.  A HUGE plus in my book!

They are made from 100% organic ingredients.  Gluten free, no high glucose corn syrup as well as zero grams trans fat with NO preservatives.   What more could you ask for??  

The only sad thing is right now they only available in Seattle Washington.  So, sad folks such as myself who live across the country must order online.  But, there is good news!  Halfpops is offering my reader a $5 coupon code as well as FREE shipping of orders of $45 or more!  So, if you log on now and order from Halfpops,use the coupon code BREAKFAST WITH TIFFANY.  The code is good for one month so get to ordering.  I'm sure anyone with a love of popcorn would appreciate these babies for Christmas.   

Take advantage of this delicious opportunity.  They are incredibly crunchy, flavorful little nuggets from Heaven.   I wish I had a lifetime supply of them.  I could munch on these anytime. 

Chair/Step Stool Remodel

Sorry I've been such a slacker of blogger lately.  Busy at work doesn't really describe it but, that's the excuse I'll use.  After all, blogging doesn't pay the bills (come on your companies, you know you want on my sidebar ; ) ).

Anyway...I've been waiting to post about a chair remodel that Hubby and I did a few weeks ago.  I was so excited to find this chair in my grandma's barn.  I remember sitting on one just like it (except an avocado green) at my Great-Grandmother's house when i was tiny.  (yeah, I was one day).

Awesome Antique chair

Pull out foot rest to use as a step-stool
I began by brushing it with a wire brush and then using steel wool to remove as much of the rust as possible.  It was really rusty but otherwise in great shape.  Next, I used painters tape and white rustoleum spray-paint. 



Still looked pretty rough.
After the white spray paint was dry, I taped over it with the painters tape and painted the remainder of the chair with black rustoleum spray paint.                                                                                                                         

Sorry for the blurriness, but as you can see it took a lot of blue tape.


Hubby helped remove all the blue tape. (Diesel as usual was there for moral support, or to get in the way.)

After all the painting was complete, the chair looked pretty good.

We bought some new rubber caps for the bottom of the chair.  The ones we removed were falling apart from dry rot.

Once they were attached to every leg we were finally finished with the chair/step stool.

I'm really happy with the results.  And, its handy!

Lots of product reviews and giveaways I want to post this week so keep on the lookout for some cool new products and tasty treats you might just be able to try yourself.  Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Dale and Thomas Popcorn Winner-Round 2

I'm not sure why giveaway winners don't claim their goods.  This is like the third time I've had this happen.  But, one of the winners of the Dale & Thomas Popcorn giveaway did not respond with their address, so another winner had to be chosen. 

It is:  

#8 Eddie!

Congrats on the win Eddie!  Now send me your address so you can get your popcorn!

I'll be back tomorrow with a show and tell chair makeover and possibly a recipe. : )
