5 Great Ways To Improve Your Popcorn’s Flavor

Let's be honest, when making popcorn, the plain flavors can become boring after a while. Sometimes, it's better to try new flavors so you can keep enjoying popcorn during your movie days. We'll show you 5 of the best alternative popcorn flavors that every popcorn aficionado can enjoy.

Cookies And Cream Popcorn

This alternative flavor is filled with white chocolate and crushed Oreo cookies. It's where deserts and snacks collide, making it a downright delicious meal.

Start by combining at least 10 ounces of white chocolate and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in one small saucepan. Melt them in a low heat setting to prevent it from destroying the flavor.

Make sure that you stir the mixture properly, so the flavors are evenly distributed. Place the melted chocolate over your popcorn. Top the popcorn with at least 12 crushed Oreo cookies and stir the mixture until it's well coated.

Once you're done, you can either eat the popcorn or place it inside the refrigerator to chill for at least 10 minutes. Doing this allows for the chocolate to set which enhances the taste. 

Margarita Popcorn

While it's non-alcoholic, this popcorn is perfect for those craving a spicy flavor. Add chili powder and salt to the already popped kernels. Then, add 1 tablespoon of lime zest. If you want extra flavor, add some cilantro to the popcorn for better taste.
