Popcorn balls are a timeless treat that we don't see enough of nowadays! They always remind me of autumn and Halloween, so I was extremely excited when The Curious Confectionery released their limited-edition Pumpkin Spice flavor this year. I was lucky enough to receive this flavor for review, and I couldn't be more pumped! First, a little more about the delightful duo who run The Curious Confectionery...
The Curious Confectionery is run by a wife and husband team who create "sweets with a story" and bring back historically significant vintage treats like popcorn balls. Their treats are made without preservatives or anything artificial, using non-GMO popcorn, sugar, and other ingredients when available. All of their creations are vegan, cruelty-free, handmade, and delicious!
I reviewed their summertime popcorn balls a while back (check them out HERE!), so I was delighted to get my claws on their limited edition Pumpkin Spice flavor (especially since we all know how I'm obsessed with all things pumpkin spice!). Check out my thoughts on them below...
The Curious Confectionery's Pumpkin Spice Popcorn Balls arrived perfectly packaged, nestled four in a package. When I opened the box the sweet, sugary smell of the popcorn balls wafted up to greet me, accompanied by the scent of autumnal spice. These Pumpkin Spice popcorn balls are made with perfectly popped popcorn spun with sugary sweetness into a ball and flavored with fragrant vanilla, pumpkin spice, and spiked with a hint of ginger. They taste even better than they smell (I seriously would wear a perfume based on the scent of these popcorn balls)! They are sweet, crispy, with the lovely warm, fall taste of pumpkin spice. Their taste conjures up classic images of autumn - leaves falling, cozy sweaters, a gentle rain pattering on the window, cuddling on the couch to watch spooky movies, a steaming cup of coffee on a cool morning, and fields of orange pumpkins!
Oops, I ate one as soon as I opened the package, so only three remain
Besides the Pumpkin Spice flavor, The Curious Confectionery also has other delectable popcorn ball flavors, like their Smoked Salted Caramel, Maple Pecan, Toasted Coconut, Hummingbird (which I reviewed previously), The Happy Hipster (packed chock full of superfoods!), and November, a festive ball containing nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and studded with cranberries and pumpkin seeds (it's a stunning show-stopper for sure!).
If you love nostalgic popcorn balls, or are intrigued to try these delicious desserts, trick or treat yourself to these delectable treats! They would also make a fantastic gift, party favor, or Halloween party centerpiece.
