OMG, best holiday ever! Tomorrow is National Popcorn Day, and I don’t know about you guys, but I’m very excited. See, I’m sort of obsessed with popcorn. It’s kind of becoming a problem. My brother and sister regularly make fun of me for eating it all the time, and I’m known to get a little impatient with people who just stick their hands in my bowl of it (I mean, come on! That’s just rude). But I can’t help it – I want it all to myself. Popcorn is delicious and I can’t get enough.
If you guys aren’t the popcorn connoisseur that I am (it’s fine, we can’t all be popcorn experts), I’ve got a few tips for you that will make your snack even more delicious than it already is. And I’m not saying you should try all of these recipes out tomorrow to celebrate National Popcorn Day, but… I mean, I won’t be mad if you do. Check out these amazing tips on how to eat popcorn that’s kicked up a notch and I think you’ll become just as obsessed as I am:
Melted ButterI can't say this is healthy, but I can say it's amazing. Just melt a little butter in the microwave (bonus points if you cut it into a heart first!) and drizzle it over your popcorn. This is great because not only is butter yummy, but it also makes your snack way less dry. Source: ShutterStock
Cheddar CheeseCheese on popcorn is one of the best things ever. The best way to use a little cheddar or American is getting a bag of powdered cheese. You can take that out of any macaroni and cheese set that's probably already in your pantry. Just sprinkle it on your popcorn and viola: a mouth-watering flavor! Source: ShutterStock
Junior MintsI was skeptical about this also... until I tried it. Pop these suckers in right after you open up the bag and shake it around. The mints get all gooey and warm and give a nice sweet flavor to the popcorn. Buy it here
Ranch SeasoningRanch makes everything better, right? Well, I don't think so... but I do think it makes popcorn better. I'm not a big fan of ranch dressing, but this seasoning is so good that I can't stop using it. This brand also makes some other awesome toppings. Buy it here
Parmesan CheeseThis once might be my favorite. For a while, I was obsessed with putting grated Parmesan cheese on my popcorn. And then my mom got mad at me because apparently it's expensive and I was wasting it. But, still worth it. Source: ShutterStock
M&M'sNot feeling that minty flavor? Just add some plain old chocolate to your bowl of popcorn. Salty and sweet is the best combo, and these are great because your popcorn isn't drenched in chocolate... you just get it once in a while. Yum. Buy them here
Crushed Red PepperDo you like your food spicy and hot? Then definitely reach for the crushed red pepper for your popcorn. This gives your snack a nice little kick and tastes really awesome. Source: ShutterStock
