Watching a movie without munching on popcorn is really an incomplete experience, even when you're watching at home. In fact, streaming your favorite flicks gives you even better snacking opportunity than going to see a new release on the big screen. At the theaters, your flavor options are buttered and extra-buttered (always extra-buttered), but at home you have the option to concoct some unique and delicious popcorn recipes that are so much more than a simple bowl of popped kernels.
It's not just movie-watching fare: popcorn is a perfect snack for any event. Whether you're hosting a party, having a friend over to gab, or rolling solo for the afternoon, popcorn is always the right choice. I think it too often gets pigeonholed into the movie snack category, and isn't recognized for it's versatility — especially when you make it fancy by adding spices, candies or even bacon. You can have it sweet or savory; you can make it kid-friendly or grown-up gourmet. Whatever your desire, there is a popcorn to satisfy your cravings.
So next time you host a get-together — whether it's a movie night or not — try serving one of these extra tasty popcorn bowls. They're sure to get the party popping, and everyone will ask you for the recipe.
