Popcorn Party Mix (Sweet & Savoury)

Popcorn is our favourite food group. Popcorn is a food group right? If it’s not, it should be. A few months ago we made six of our favourite popcorn seasonings. We still love those, but we thought it was time to up our popcorn game. Our Sweet and Savoury Popcorn Party Mix will spice up any party.

If you go to the movies you see commercials that tell you to put chocolate in your popcorn. We’ve always been intrigued by the idea. We decided to do our own version of those add-ins, both sweet and savoury to conquer all your cravings.

Looking for the perfect savoury snack? Try mixing popcorn with some vegan cheese crackers, vegan bacon, smoked paprika, and pretzels. Craving a sweet treat? Try our Sweet Popcorn Party Mix with a combination of chocolate, pretzels, and shreddies. You can’t go wrong with this twist on a classic snack.

It’s cold out there, we understand that you just want to curl up on your couch and watch movies all night. It’s all we want to do too. It’s the perfect snack for those nights in where you binge watch Stranger Things or Glow. Whether you choose our sweet or savoury mix, you’re in for a delicious treat.
