Mexican ChocoPOP

I love popcorn. It’s easy snacking; it’s light (except when it’s not); it’s a high-fiber dinner – no shame.

I was the kid at the movie theater who made a B-line to the popcorn butter pump. I went all-in. My thought? More is more. It’s just so salty and, well, ultra-buttery. Y’all know that it’s really butter that makes the world go ‘round, right? When it comes to popcorn, it’s all about that lightweight crunch under the POP of flavor.

I really didn’t think I had that much to say about popcorn when I sat down to write this post, but now I’m analyzing how my popcorn love has gone through a few stages throughout my life. It started with the movie theater popcorn (which I still love, don’t get me wrong, but it feels like a special occasion these days). Then in college, I discovered the simplicity of popping popcorn kernels in a paper bag with just some salt. And now, I’ve discovered the beauty of stovetop popping with lots of fun flavors.

I really got into it initially with a nice drizzle of truffle oil and a healthy dash of salt, garlic powder, and paprika. I dabbled in some delicious kettle corn for the first time last year, and I just decided to try out other fun sweet combos.

Walk with me. We all have those weeks. Things get crazy stressful at work, someone’s a jerk to you, something just doesn’t go your way for no particular reason, you have to do something you really don’t want to. Don’t worry, we can be in it together, like friends do (cause they’re awesome – I speak from experience), and I promise, when you’re having one of those weeks, I’ll send you something like this: http://inktank.fi/60-of-the-worlds-happiest-facts/ FYI, #1, 11, 14, 40, and 55 are totally awesome. I meeaaaan, penguins only have one mate their entire life and “propose” by giving their mate a pebble?!?! STOP. I die of cuteness.
