My First Giveaway – Kernel Season’s Popcorn Flavorings
Popcorn is not usually regarded as a healthy food but in my opinion it should. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that huge bucket of popcorn from a movie theater is a healthy stuff, because it’s not. It’s soaked in butter and sprinkled with enormous amount of salt. According to WebMD movie theater popcorn ranges anywhere from 400 to 1,200 kcal depending on size from small to big. That definitely is not a low calorie snack but trust me if I say that popcorn can be a good and a healthy snack. It all depends on what kind of popcorn and a portion you’re going to eat. I always buy 100 kcal mini bags of popcorn. Such popcorn is much lower in sodium and fat. Orville Redenbacher’s Smart Pop has only 1.5 g of fat per 100 kcal bag, 4% of sodium and 3 g of fiber. Considering quite large volume of a bag it is a healthy and filling snack. The only problem people might find with low fat, low sodium popcorn is a lack of taste and that iss where Kernel Season’s comes in. It adds flavor to your popcorn without adding unnecessary calories or sodium. What could be better than a lot of flavor and not a lot of calories
Kernel Season’s offers a wide variety of popcorn flavorings from sweet like caramel to cheesy ones. I had a chance to taste their newest invention, Pumpkin Spice flavor and it is delicious. The best thing is that all of the seasonings can be used not only on popcorn but in any recipe you can only think of. I add Pumpkin Spice to my coffee (yumm) and I am planning to add it to my Thanksgiving sweet potato mash. I also can’t wait to use butter flavor on a whitefish, buttery flavor without the addition of butter…..win.
In a giveaway I want to give to one person four flavors seen below (Kettle Corn, Nacho Cheddar, Milk Chocolate Caramel and Ranch). To have a chance to receive those 4 flavors all you have to do is leave a comment with a dish idea (other than plain popcorn) featuring chosen flavor from the ones I’m showing here. So for example you can write “I would use nacho cheddar to flavor omlette because I love flavor of melted cheese with eggs” etc.
I will be collecting responses till October, 31 (Halloween night) till midnight and I will choose a winner on Tuesday afternoon. I will choose a winner based on the creativity of the dish idea. Oh and I am really excited since it is my first giveaway ever. Hope I’ll see some awesome responses Good Luck.
I loved all the answers and it wasn’t easy to chose but I had to. The winner of a giveaway is Sabrina. Her answer was carefully thought out, she gave 5 different ideas and all them sounded scrumptious, well balanced and creative. I especially liked the idea of sprinkling white cheddar on the vegetables that are about to go into the oven. It sounds like a great way to add more flavor to some boring veggies. Who knows, even kids might like it that way
Thanks everyone for participating.
