Life is busy. Even though our family is small, it still seems like we are always busy, busy, busy. School functions, work functions, events, after school play dates and more. Our calendar is bursting. Unfortunately, all that busy means that often we might as well be boats floating by each other, each going in our own direction. One thing we can come together around, though, is a good movie. And what do you need with a good movie? POPCORN! Well, as luck would have it, Calgary has a deliciously local popcorn company…Poko Popcorn!
Forget your garden variety microwave popcorn! Poko Popcorn is better…oh so much better. Poko starts with Mushroom Popcorn to give it a perfectly spherical shape. Each kernel is popped using no oil. Healthy!
Then each delectable piece is coated with flavor. No dusts or flavored salts here. And batches are tumbled in stainless steel tumblers to ensure that your favorite flavor gets on every single piece. Oh and they keep all their popcorn in warmers so you get it nice and toasty warm.
Good luck getting it home to enjoy during your movie!
My favorite three flavors? Chicago mix (yummy cheddar popcorn mixed with caramel corn), white cheddar and salt & vinegar. I have never had true salt and vinegar popcorn and it is AMAZING. I’ve tried salt and vinegar powder on popcorn before but it is not the same. Not even close. I can’t decide which is my favorite. Maybe the caramel corn out of the Chicago mix. Or maybe the cheddar or maybe the salt and vinegar. Aaaahhhhh! I can’t decide. Good thing that I don’t have to! Check out all their flavors!
Someone else in our house is a BIG fan. Guess who?
He sat, then he lay down. Then he did it all again because those are the only two things he knows how to do.
Evan and I decided we need to have a bit of popcorn and watch some TV. Snapping a pic seemed like the thing to do. Cooper had another idea, though, all he could think about was…
POPCORN! GIVE ME THE POPCORN!
We’ve made a Poko monster!
