Sweet, salty, crunchy, caramel, chocolate goodness! Yep that's the best description I can give for this twix caramel popcorn. It made our Friday family movie night a huge hit and inspired me to try out a new flavor popcorn every Friday! This should be fun, but for now it's all about this twix caramel popcorn yall!

It's addictive and since I'm a "lose my baby pouch" diet I'm struggling big time with this stuff in the house. I've been allowing myself a little bit at a time though. It's heaven I tell ya!

Perfect pms food, movie night with your honey food, or lounging on a rainy sunday food.
