Flavoring Affordable Popcorn
I don’t mean to be corny, but popcorn is a snack that is just bursting with value! Although, I have to admit it’s not exactly bursting with flavor, which is why folks typically take to drowning it in butter and salt. But I’m here to tell you there’s a better way to flavorize your popcorn.
Whether you’re scooping some corn kernels from our bulk bins to pop in an air popper or you’re taking four minutes to pop up some 365 Everyday Value Organic Microwave Popcorn (psst…it’s a Sure Deal
at $2.69 for a 3-bag box), the best way to make good popcorn is to start…er, well…with good popcorn.
Once you have your plain popcorn base, just start adding your favorite flavors. Let your imagination (or taste buds) run wild. With incredibly affordable popcorn as the flavor carrier, you might even be able to afford to splurge on a small amount of a really great, high-quality flavor-er.
Here are 10 of our favorite ways to add flavor to a big bowl of popcorn that won’t also add artificial colors, flavors, or hydrogenated fats to the bowl. (Yes, in fact, we are pleased to offer Ranch dressing mix and marshmallows without those undesirable ingredients.)
- parmesan cheese
- cinnamon sugar
- maple sugar and toasted pecans
- chili powder
- honey and pecans
- chocolate chips and mini marshmallows
- bragg liquid aminos and nutritional yeast
- smoked sea salt or citrus salt
- ranch dressing mix
