Popcorn Seasoning Kit

Homemade Popcorn Seasoning | The Evermine Blog | www.evermine.com
Every fall, my boyfriend James and I love to curl up on the couch and have a movie marathon. We usually watch movie franchises like Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean or Twilight. With each movie night we like to stock up on our favorite snacks, and popcorn, of course, is a movie-watching staple. I usually whip up some sort of seasoning for the popcorn, but this year I decided to make six different seasoning flavors just for our movie-date nights.

This would make a great gift to any popcorn-lover. Just mix up the seasonings (most of which you’ll find you already have on hand), package them in small shaker bottles, add a bag of popcorn kernels and you’re done!

    • Hi Ashley,

      The cheddar cheese powder I found in the baking/spice section at the grocery store. For the parmesan, look in the italian food section. It’s usually near the jars of premade sauces, pestos, etc. Both cheese powders are Kroger brand.

  1. I love this idea. Most food gifts are sweets or bean soup, and this is a fun idea for the single guys/diabetic individuals in my life. Where did you get the shaker jars?

  2. What a great idea! Do you have any suggestions for a popcorn bar? I would like to make the seasonings but will they “stick” to the popcorn? I read somewhere that this seemed to be the biggest complaint. Thanks for your help and advice.

    • Hi Jessie, yes you need to add butter or olive oil for the seasoning to stick! For the popcorn bar, it might be easiest to have people just drizzle some olive oil over their popcorn or you could have melted butter kept warm in a electric bean pot or some other kind of small warmer. Hope that helps!

  3. I am going to give this popcorn idea for family Christmas gifts, and I am gathering all my supplies now. I am having a hard time finding the box that you used. Is there somewhere on line that I can order and do not have to order over 50. I just need a dozen. Love the idea and have a lot of friends that love popcorn. I am excited to get going on this project. What is shelf life of the toppings? Thank you for the idea.

  4. ‘m going to love this because I eat a lot of popcorn. I have a hard time with the store bought seasonings because they tend to get hard with the humidity that we have locally.
