I’ve seen this Cretors Chicago Mix Popcorn for a long time at Costco but I never bothered to pick it up because I thought the flavor combination sounded so strange! Cheddar and caramel popcorn? What is that about?

Despite my feelings that this combination of cheddar and caramel is a little odd, this popcorn is highly addictive and actually strangely tasty! The two flavors combine well together and also consumed alone each flavor is delicious. The caramel popcorn is sweet and crunchy. The cheddar is super cheesy and flavorful. Both my husband and parents were leery about trying this popcorn but everyone turned out to love it. My mom couldn’t stop eating it!


I paid $6.89 Canadian for the 737 gram bag of Costco Cretors Chicago Mix Popcorn.


The Costco Cretors Chicago Mix Popcorn makes an amazing, hard to put down and stop eating snack! The best before date is about seven months from the date we purchased the bag. My only gripe is that the bag isn’t resealable. The caramel popcorn is heavier so you need to shake the bag well before opening it or if you really love the caramel popcorn try opening the bag from the bottom.

2 and 1/4 cups is 240 calories, 12 grams of fat, 33 grams of carbohydrates, 22 grams of sugar, 320 mg of sodium, two grams of fibre and two grams of protein. So..yeah, not healthy. The worst part about this popcorn is how EASY it is to eat a ton of it! So maybe portion some out for yourself or just say to heck with it and go balls to the wall!

This popcorn was a pleasant surprise.I never thought cheddar and caramel could taste so good. I’ll try to limit my exposure to this product due to it’s highly addictive and unhealthy properties.

  1. I tried this product for the first time 10 days ago from the Costco near the airport in Portland OR. My digestion hasn’t been the same since. I’ll leave it at that. Never again. You’re welcome.

  2. Very disappointed with the last bag we bought. The chesse popcorn had very little chesse on it nothing like it use to be. In addition it looked like someone dumped a bunch of popcorn crumbs in the bag.
    It would appear to me that your trying to cut costs but not on my dime. I will not buy again unless it’s improved,

  3. This was once a fantastic product. Now it should be avoided. Cutting costs by reducing
    the amount of cheese on the cheese popcorn will only lead to dissatisfaction and less
    sales. You need to get to the person who made this decision and run them off.

  4. I am disappointed in your product as there is hardly any cheese on you popcorn. The last two bag I have bought were very little cheese on your product. Have you changed your formula?

  5. Just opened the bag I purchased from Costco in Brentwood TN. The bag was 30% air, 50% oddly tasking cheese pop corn, and 20% caramel corn. Not worth the purchase. Hope this comment saves another shopper the disappointment.

    • I bought it after a long time and fou d the opposite. Not enough Carmel and filled with air more than popcorn. I don’t buy things like this unless it’s a treat and was very disappointed. Wanted a real mixture of Carmel and there’s hardly any.

  6. Bought this at Costco, we normally love Cretors Chicago Mix, but this bag is going in the compost. The cheese flavoured popcorn does not taste very cheesy and has a bitter taste. Not at all good.😢 lot numberL0003079029, best by 2023 Feb13

  7. I’ve notice the the cheddar part was a not the same less cheddar cheese

    There is an also bitter taste and very naked popcorn taste

  8. I had to stop buying this because I could eat the whole bag without noticing! I prefer to eat the flavours separate and they’re great for a sweet and savoury craving! If you happen to have access to Mary’s Popcorn Shop, try their version, it’s EVEN BETTER! They also have a “Quebec Style” with 2 different kinds of cheese flavours.
