Franklin's Gourmet Popcorn Brings Back Fond Memories

POPCORN!! Who doesn't love popcorn? Not too many people. It's just something that has been a favorite snack for a long time. I know at our house it's a go-to snack quite often.

Franklin's Gourmet Popcorn is one brand of popcorn that I have been very impressed with. We were sent a case of it to test out and it has been a hoot popping the corn!

Popping the Franklin's Gourmet Popcorn was like a big blast from the past for me. It's made to pop in a Kettle Popper, like the ones you see in movie theaters, or on top of your stove in a big kettle. When I was a kid, on top of the stove was how we often popped our corn. We would stand there shaking the pan over the heat waiting to hear the ping of that first kernel that popped. The anticipation was magic for us!

The magic is still there, only now I can look through my glass pan lid to see those kernels starting to pop!

What I really love about the popcorn is that it is organic, non-GMO popcorn.  It's also made with coconut oil too. That's a really good thing. I can feel good about letting my family eat it and sharing with friends and their little ones. 

Kids really get a kick out of helping to pop this corn. Like I said, it's a little bit of magic waiting for those kernels to pop. Of course, adult and careful supervision is required, but it's something the whole family can enjoy.

Here's what you do.....Get out a large kettle, about 6 quarts in size. Pour the contents of both sides of the Franklin's Gourmet popcorn in the kettle. Turn the heat on to medium and shake the pan around. In about 5 minutes or less you have a steaming hot batch of super yummy popcorn to enjoy. It tastes just like what you get at the movie theater, only better for you!

I was surprised at how much came from one batch. In the picture above one packet was popped and poured into that large bowl. It's an 8 quart bowl. That's a lot of popcorn, way more than the stuff you would pop in your microwave and a lot better for you to eat too!!

The whole family and so far all the friends we have shared it with, love it! It's got just the right amount of butter on it, no need to add extra salt, and it tastes so good. Believe me, it brings back some fond memories for me as a kid!

Franklin's Gourmet Popcorn comes ready for 2, 4, 6, 8, and 12 ounce kettle poppers. The size we had was for 4 ounce poppers. They comes in cases of 24 packets, so they go a long way.
