A while ago, we had some teens over for a game night and I proceeded to make popcorn on the stove top. I kid you not, one of the teenage boys said to me: "What are you making?" "Popcorn" "On the stove? No Way, I didn't know you could do that!"
I could hardly believe my ears...Microwave popcorn, apparently now the standard for popping corn, was not only a luxury we didn't really indulge in growing up, but I've learned to dislike over the years. To me, it tastes like wax, it's expensive, it has ingredients I can't pronounce.!
Popcorn however, real popcorn, is a pretty great snack. My mom LOVES popcorn. There were times that popcorn was our evening meal. It's relatively healthy as long as you don't pour loads of butter and salt on it. For as long and I can remember and as long as she can remember we've used the Jolly Time Buttery Seasoning as a low calorie way to season our popcorn. It's become another "family secret", that many friends have asked for over the years.
I would highly recomend that you look for it at your local grocer and if they don't have it, request it. Trust me, you'll be glad you did!
I've recently been inspired by a friend to try a give away...if you want to try the seasoning, leave a comment here telling me a memory you have from the past or are currently making with popcorn! I recently purchased it directly from Jolly Time and it came only in four packs. I would love to send one your way! Please include your email so I can contact you directly. Giveaway will be chosen at random, closing Saturday March 13th. Winner announced in Monday's blog post! Good Luck...
Happy munching! For more favorites and tips that WORK, click the link!
