Making Flavored Popcorn

Who doesn't enjoy digging into a buttery, salty snack while watching their favorite film or taking a quick break from work? With so many varieties of flavored popcorn to choose from, your regular afternoon snack will never grow monotonous.

Flavored popcorn is made by using a seasoning to dress up the popcorn. This seasoning can be made or can be bought pre-made in most grocery stores. You can find popcorn flavors as straightforward as cheese popcorn seasoning or as unique as apple or bbq popcorn seasoning.

The seasoning you create is much like the popcorn salt found in most homes and movie theaters. However, when dealing with such varieties as cheese popcorn, the seasoning has extra ingredients. The seasoning is generally a combination of ingredients that is then drizzled onto popcorn. For example, cheese popcorn seasoning can be made with parmesan cheese, oregano, basil, thyme, olive oil and salt.

If you want to spice things up a bit, try creating Southwestern-style popcorn. Mix chili powder, salt and ground cumin together and sprinkle the seasoning onto the popcorn. You can make a larger batch of seasoning and keep it stored in an airtight container for future use.

The beauty of flavored popcorn is that you can be as creative as you want. Some people like to make fruit-flavored seasonings using ingredients like flavored Jello packets or by mashing fruit-flavored candies into their seasoning. You can keep your seasoning simple and use hot chocolate mix to make a sweet and salty snack.

When making flavored popcorn, the key is to experiment with as many flavors as possible. Think about the foods you like and how you could craft a similar seasoning for your popcorn.
