Popcorn Shed


National Popcorn Day is approaching and we're big fans of popcorn! 

We regularly have a family movie night and popcorn is always one of the treats we have. Daddy and Joseph like sweet and salted, but I prefer the toffee kind so we often have a variety.

When I heard about all the different flavours that Popcorn Shed had created we were all keen to give them a try and there was definitely lots of ooooooosss when the gifted box of popcorn arrived!

We've been lucky to try the Salted Caramel, Pecan Pie, Butterly Nuts, Pop 'n' Choc, Say Cheese, Sweet Cheesus and Berrylicious. Packaged in shed type boxes, as well as snack bags, the Popcorn Shed flavours are super tasty and unique.

Joseph's favourite was the Pop 'n' Choc, chocolate coated popcorn. Mine and Daddy's was definitely the Salted Caramel, so much so that I got creative and made us some yummy popcorn bites!!
