Gourmet Popcorn Sampler

Gourmet Popcorn Sampler

Gourmet Popcorn from The Popcorn Factory….how best to experience it for the first time when you are unsure of which of the many delicious flavors to taste first? Should you go with Garlic Asiago Popcorn or maybe Jalapeno Popcorn? Maybe you’re leaning towards Passion Fruit Popcorn only to be swayed towards the ever so popular Chocolate Popcorn? The answer to that question is the 18 Pack Popcorn Sampler from The Popcorn Factory. Its oh-so-delicious picture is right there to your left.

 In about a paragraph or two, let us know which of the many gourmet popcorn flavors you would try first! Also, let us know which of the other flavors you think adults would like versus kids. Or which ones would be loved by all! And if there are certain flavors or combinations of flavors that you would like to see in the future, let us know.

The gourmet popcorn flavors for your mouth-watering perusal include Garlic Asiago Popcorn, Almond Pecan Corn, Jalapeno Popcorn, Kettle Corn, Cheese Popcorn, Butter Popcorn, Buffalo Ranch Popcorn, Caramel Corn, White Cheddar Popcorn, Cinnamon Corn, Chocolate Popcorn, Passion Fruit Popcorn and Caramel Apple Popcorn.

We are passionate about popcorn. When we are in our actual Popcorn Factory (yes it’s not just a name, there an actual Popcorn Factory!), we love to brainstorm all the different possibilities for future popcorn flavors while always making sure that the quality of our gourmet popcorn is second to none.

So in about a paragraph or two, tell us about  your favorite memories of Super Bowls past and how you think this one will shake out. And of course tell us about how popcorn is the ultimate Super Bowl snack! There will be 3 winners and the winners will receive a Super Bowl commemorative tin that features either the Green Bay Packers or the Pittsburg Steelers!

New York Jets 3-Way Popcorn Tin

New York Jets 3-Way Popcorn Tin

Welcome to The Popcorn Factory ‎1st Place NFC/AFC Championship Game Popcorn Party!

Wow. The Jets knocked off Tom Brady and the Patriots. The Bears will play the Packers in the playoffs for the first time since 1941. And the Steelers advance with a drive in the closing minutes that included a 58-yard pass to rookie Antonio Brown on third-and-19 (3rd and 19 against the Ravens defense with cover protection). Unbelievable!
 
Please post about a paragraph or two telling us about how watching football can bring the family and friends together and how popcorn makes that time so much better! We really love it when our popcorn is shared amongst family and friends, so we absolutely love to hear these comments!

Pictured to your left is the New York Jet 3-Way Popcorn Tin. The winners of course can select from their favorite team’s tin, even if that team is eliminated. :( You can see a list of all football popcorn tins here.

We will select 3 random winners!

National Popcorn Month – Party planning fun isn’t just for grown-ups (3 winners!)

Happy Haunting Diva Bag

Happy Haunting Diva Bag

It’s National Popcorn Month, and The Popcorn Factory® is celebrating by sharing some of our best kept popcorn party planning secrets with you each week in October!  Popcorn has long been a staple for all celebrations – from sporting events to gift-giving and movie watching, but popcorn is also a great way to spice up your cooking.

Party planning fun isn’t just for grown-ups – this October, let kids in on the fun!  Guests of all ages love a snack that’s easy to grab-and-go, and creating a unique trail mix let’s the whole family work together.   Making memories as a family has never been tastier, and The Popcorn Factory® has exciting flavors that will make any trail mix something special. 

As part of the celebration for National Popcorn Month, we are giving away 3 of the Happy Haunting Diva Bag (Item # NA3310).

Trail Mix

Make it POP!  The Popcorn Factory® offers a number of flavors to suit any party planner’s tastes.  From classic Butter, Cheese and Caramel corn, to exotic Jalapeño, sweet S’mores and tangy Ginger Teriyaki, The Popcorn Factory® will help you make your trail mix unique – and delicious.  Make sure to add popcorn while it is fresh so that it keeps its flavor and texture.

 

Go a little nutty.  Nuts offer a hearty addition to trail mix, but be sure to choose flavors that won’t overpower.  Consider whether you want to incorporate the salty flavor found in pre-salted nuts or choose a blander version that will add texture and a meaty taste.  Be sure to check on any potential allergies among party guests before serving.

 

Sprinkle in seeds.  Not only are seeds nutritious, but they make a crunchy trail mix component that is easy to munch.  From pumpkin seeds to sunflower seeds, you can roast them, toast them or just toss them in!

 

Crackers, pretzels and cookies – oh my!  These carbohydrate options are tasty and come in an endless variety of flavors.  Try cheese crackers for an extra punch, pretzel sticks for something a little salty, and crumbled cookies for a sweet treat.

 

Add in fruity fun.  Dried fruit comes in all shapes and sizes and has a long shelf life – though you may not need it with a trail mix this yummy!  Add in traditional fruits like dried apples, cranberries and bananas, or spice it up with tropical mango and pineapple.  Health food stores often have extensive options to work with, allowing each family member to choose a favorite.

 

Sweeten the deal.  Candies and chocolates are a great way to add sweetness and texture to your trail mix.  M&Ms make an easy, classic edition, but make sure to consider other fun options like snowcaps, crushed chocolate bars or even gummy bears!  Keep your trail mix chilled so these candies don’t melt or stick to other ingredients. 

Half the fun is letting each family member add his or her favorite ingredients, but we’ll get you started with some fail-proof suggestions.
