Popcorn is one of our go-to snacks here. Popcorn is cheap and with our popcorn maker the kids can whip up a batch themselves when they get hungry. It’s National Popcorn Day and we have finally bounced back from a week-long fight with the flu we decided that we would start looking for fun ways to spice up everyday popcorn with some fun and exciting.
When I think about mixing things into popcorn I think about this one sleepover with my best friend. We spent the night putting on blue lipstick and gushing over the Back Street Boys eating the weirdest yet surprisingly yummy popcorn. Somehow we ended up mixing Goldfish and garlic powder into our popcorn. I’ll tell you the next day our breath smelled terrible! But I can’t recall either of us getting sick for a while.
