I think popcorn is the all American snack. We eat it by the bowl-fulls and there is even a popcorn machine where I work. Talk about a great perk! Seriously, we do eat a lot at home and I think it’s one of the healthier snack foods around. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to review Franklin’s Gourmet Popcorn
Franklin’s Gourmet Popcorn is a delicious organic popcorn portion pack that can be cooked in your popcorn machine or in a pot. The pre-measured pack includes popping corn (organic, non gmo, gluten free), seasoning, and 100% coconut oil. Its pre-measured for a perfect pop every time. Makes delicious popcorn that tastes just like the movies!
We don’t have a machine like I do at work, so we went with a large pot. To make, just open the pack and put everything in the pot.
Turn your burner to medium high heat and the oil will melt. Then wait for the poppin’ to start!
You don’t want to sit there and watch it. You do want to shake it a bit as the popping continues to move the oil around for even flavor. This also avoids any popcorn burn… trust me, the smell of burnt popcorn is not pleasant. Here is hubby shakin’ it up for us.
When we were done, the whole pot was full of fresh popcorn. The cool part is there was only a kernel or two that wasn’t popped so nothing was wasted. I like that! Here is our big bowl of popcorn. Makes you want to dive right in doesn’t it?
The verdict is in…. this was a big bowl of deliciousness we enjoyed while watching TV. I thing the balance of salt and butter flavor was perfect. Hubby likes his more buttery so he added a bit to his share, but I was perfectly happy with it as it is. It’s light and fluffy with a great flavor and you don’t feel like you’re cheating on your diet. I give this popcorn two thumbs up!
