Creative ways to flavour popcorn

A few weeks ago the kids and I were craving popcorn, I had the microwave kind in the pantry, but they tasted rather bland so I asked the community on Facebook what they do to flavour their popcorn? There were some very interesting and strange suggestions, thought I would share them all with you.

I have fond memories of Mum and I sharing a bowl of popcorn flavoured in icing sugar.

I love the icing sugar and salt idea. I really like sweet and salty popcorn and that sounds like an easy way to have it homemade.

being dairy free the kids usually have chicken salt, or if I will make it coconut caramel (dairy free). We also just braught cinnimon sugar for them.

Usually we have the popcorn plain, air popped out of the machine. But if it is a special treat, I add sultanas, diced dried apricots, banana chips and honey flavoured tiny teddies to the mix.

Love your idea Amanda, sounds delicious.:)

I do half butter half coconut oil and some salt. Sometimes a sprinkle of nutritional yeast as well. I find the coconut oil lightens the butter up a little.

Ooh i am liking the sound of using coconut oil! I will have to give it a try next time, thank you, Alex!
