Fireworks Popcorn makes everything a popcorn lover needs for a perfect, customizable popcorn snack. If you thought there was only one kind of popcorn kernel, you might be surprised to know that Fireworks Popcorn bottles ten different varieties of kernels and each type has it's own unique texture and flavor. Many Fireworks fans say they don't even need any butter or seasonings because the kernels taste so flavorful on their own, but if you love your popcorn salty, buttery, cheesy or sweet, Fireworks also makes bottles of popcorn seasonings. In this blog post, I'll outline the steps in creating your perfect popcorn snack.
1. Choose your kernels. Do you like your popcorn light and fluffy? Extra crunchy? Match your popcorn preference with the right kernel.
Rich and crunchy- Black Hills
Light and fluffy- Orchid Blossom, Sunset Fire
Crisp- Red River Valley, Wisconsin White Birch
Creamy Texture- Savannah Gold
If you aren't sure what kernel you might like, Fireworks packages popcorn kernels in samplers with smaller bags so you can sample the different types. Once you find a favorite, you can purchase them in bigger bottles.
2. Choose your popping method.
Once you have decided on your kernels you can get popping. The kernels come in plastic bottles, not the microwavable bag you're used too, but don't worry, there are several easy ways to pop popcorn kernels.
On the Stove. If you want to pop popcorn the old fashioned way, put a tablespoon of oil and a 1/3 cup of kernels in a pot with a lid on the stove. Shake the pot around occasionally to keep it from burning. Once the popping starts to slow your popcorn is ready.
In the Microwave. If you would prefer a hands-off method, you can put the kernels and oil in a paper bag or a microwave safe popcorn bowl and microwave for 3-5 minutes. Listen carefully and once the popping starts to slow your popcorn is ready.
Popcorn Popper. If
you are lucky enough to own one of these handy machines, Fireworks
Popcorn can be used in any popcorn popper, just follow the instructions
that come with the machine.
3. Choose your seasonings. Whether your love your popcorn sweet, salty or cheesy there's a perfect seasoning for you.
Salt. This super fine popcorn salt clings to every kernel so keep an icy cold beverage handy.
White Cheddar. This is Wisconsin-made popcorn so there has to be a cheesy option. This might be my favorite but it's a close call because I love butter.
Kettle Corn. If you can't decide between sweet and salty, have them both with kettle corn seasonings.
