A classic party snack has to be a humble bag of chips. While a standard chip is an acceptable treat, it can get a little boring after having them at so many parties over the years. But there are so many other ways to enjoy your favorite snacks!
Gourmet popcorn has become a mainstay in many parties’ tables in the past several years. With a large variety of flavors, from sweet to savory, there really is something for every taste. But the best part about gourmet popcorn is that it’s so easy to share and eat with people!
Popcorn is Delicious
Popcorn is delicious. It’s the perfect snack to munch on when you’re watching a movie. It can be salty, sweet, smoky, and//or plain depending on what topp topping you add to it.
If you have guests over for a viewing party of your favorite movie, you can just give them a big bowl of this delicious snack.
When most people think ‘popcorn,’ they think buttery and salty — two words that are not exactly healthy.
With gourmet popcorn, you can provide a healthier alternative to typical popcorn. Let’s face it, people love popcorn because of its crispiness and delicious flavor. Instead of coating your gourmet popcorn in sugar or salt, coat it in a variety of other interesting flavors, such as cinnamon sugar or balsamic vinegar.
It Goes Great with Everything!
When you think of party favors, you typically think ‘sweets,’ right? Well, why not include popcorn in your next celebration? Popcorn is an amazing snack when paired with anything.
Drinks at a cocktail party? Try some buttered popcorn! Is birthday cake too sweet for your liking? Add some chocolate-dipped caramel popcorn to the mix!
Popcorn is cheap to make, cheap to buy, and can often be bought in bulk for cheap prices. Also, because popcorn is so versatile, you will only need to purchase one type of flavor. Think about it. You can create hundreds of different flavors with just four types of popcorn!
Everybody Loves Popcorn!
The average person consumes around 50 quarts of popcorn each year, which is amazing considering how easy it is to make. So next time you plan a party or host a children’s birthday party, why not try some gourmet popcorn? You will love to see your guests’ happy faces as they munch on their tasty treats.
Take it One Step Further!
If you’ve already given out jars of gourmet popcorn at your next party, take it one step further by offering an array of complimentary flavors or even making your own ‘gourmet popcorn bar.’ Your guests will have so much fun experimenting with different combinations of toppings, they’ll never want to leave!
It Makes a Great Party Favour!
Although it’s easy to make gourmet popcorn for your party, why not go the extra mile and include some in your party favor bags? Who knows, you might even inspire your guests to host future parties with their own gourmet popcorn bars!
