However, realizing that I didn't have to take an entire bag, I went back and got a paper bowl of kettle corn. Probably about a cup and a half to two cups.
I later discovered that this was left over from an turkey giveaway event that several coworkers participated in the night before. It's a pretty cool charity event that my office has helped with for many years. However, I don't know where the kettle corn itself is from.
The kettle corn was slightly sweet with a little salty flavor. The popcorn was fresh and I enjoyed the treat.

Let's start with the decoration. Simple and elegant. I could have done without the sugar flower on top. Isn't really tasty or necessary.
The cake itself is a rich dark chocolate and very moist. The butter cream frosting was also chocolate and super sweet, but not bad. It balanced with the cake.
Bonus, served with a wooden spork so you can make sure that you get a bit of frosting with every bite.
Final verdict: worth every bite!
Now is the time of year when my office is inundated with food. Donuts, chocolate, snacks and gift baskets. Rarely does someone send us oranges or other healthy options. It's tough to avoid or say no to the temptation.
We generally say that you gain at least ten pounds during the weeks between Halloween and New Year because the consultants, product reps and contractors choose this time to show their appreciation or make their name known. I wonder if they could spread it out a little to the rest of the year?
In addition, it will actually make me decide if I really like something I'm eating. If I don't like it, why finish it, right?
Seems like a fun adventure, so let's see how this experiment goes. What holiday treat are you looking forward to?
