Popcorn – Three Ways

Popcorn – Three Ways

Popcorn is one of those underrated snack foods that we tend to forget about in favour of a packet of potato crisps or some salted peanuts. For a long time, the only time I would ever have popcorn was on a visit to the cinema.

Popcorn is versatile, lends itself to both sweet and savoury flavours, plus it’s inexpensive to make! It seems the snack food companies have jumped on board now with a range of flavoured popcorn varieties now available in the chip aisle at your local supermarket.

The good news though is that making your own popcorn is very easy to do at home!

When you’re feeling peckish, you can have a bowl of fresh popcorn ready to eat within minutes. There are a few different ways to prepare popcorn – microwave, air-popper, or as I prefer, stovetop.

Once you’ve popped up a storm, you can enjoy your corn with a light sprinkle of salt, or get creative with flavours and toppings to take your snack to the next level.


Up your popcorn game with these 3 varieties

Sweet n Salty Curried Popcorn

The batch of curried popcorn shown in the photo was made using a recipe from thekichn.com. It’s is one of many recipes you’ll find floating around the internet for curried popcorn.

I like it because it brings the sweet flavour that helps balance the spice of the curry. It’s delicious!

Peanut Butter Caramel

I’m sure you all know how delicious caramel or toffee popcorn is. Adding peanut butter and chocolate drizzle is a game changer though!

Package in a beautiful glass jar and this makes a great gift idea too!

Loaded Popcorn

This one is my own creation and is a great alternative to loaded fries!

Fry up some diced onion, bacon and mushrooms and sprinkle the mix over some popcorn. Top with grated cheese and melt under a grill or in the oven at low heat (be careful that your popcorn doesn’t burn!)


And there you have 3 very different ways to flavour popcorn! How do you prefer popcorn? Let us know in the comments…
