The holidays often bring about feelings of nostalgia, as families and friends gather to celebrate and remember good times, and share in the tradition of favorite holiday foods. And it’s no different for our Product Developers.
As the team developed and pitched new product ideas for the 2016 holiday season, we began waxing nostalgic about an old customer favorite snack item that became a ghost of holiday products past. After much deliberation, we decided to give in to our snack sentimentality, and give our customers the gift of Trader Joe’s Rosencrunch & Guildenpop.
“To crunch or not to crunch?” When that is the question, we have the answer. It starts with roasted pecan halves and almonds for seriously nutty crunch. Then comes the candy coated popcorn. Midwest-grown Mushroom corn kernels (named for their large, puffy shape when popped) are air-popped, and then candied in butter and sweet cane sugar.
When the nuts and popcorn are mixed you get a crunchy, sweet treat that will have you reaching for a second handful before you’ve finished eating the first.
Rosencrunch & Guildenpop is sealed in a bag for freshness, and packed into a glossy blue tin that makes an eye-popping addition to a gift basket or stocking. Indulge yourself with these crunchy clusters or share the sweet sensation with the people in your hamlet. We’re selling each eight ounce tin for $4.49, only during the holidays.
