Forget about stringing popcorn for the Christmas tree. My kind of holiday popcorn comes covered in caramel. More specifically, it's tossed with shelled peanuts and made by the Georgetown Valley Candy Company. The best thing about this salty-sweet treat is that it does double duty: Call it an addictive snack or yummy filling for the candy bowl. I found my bag at Marczyk Fine Foods, but you can also order online from the candy company directly. Bonus: Next time you find yourself in Georgetown, stroll downtown while munching this old-fashioned sweet.
