This year, what if you put a fun little twist on your Thanksgiving traditions? Growing up, a lot of us have great memories of the food that graced our Thanksgiving dinner tables, especially the desserts. Pecan pie was always a staple at my house, but since I began hosting the Thanksgiving meal, I’ve made my favorite Garrett flavor a new tradition, and you may want to try the same.

Instead of making that pecan pie this year, try serving up a tin of Pecan CaramelCrisp®, Garrett’s combination of its signature gourmet caramel popcorn and locally roasted pecans. Opening this tin instantly reminds me of Thanksgiving as that wonderful mixed aroma of caramel and pecans emerges.

I like to serve little dishes after dinner with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. Of course, the nice part about popcorn is that it travels around the house without worry of making a mess, so the snacking on our CaramelCrisp® tends to go on throughout the evening.
