Do you ever try a new flavour of popcorn or ever do anything different with it? Or do you stick with your same old favourite salted popcorn and just eat it straight out of the bag, whilst completely fixated on the latest Netflix release? If the answer is yes, then don’t worry I’m guilty of that too, well until I was introduced to Popcorn Shed.
Popcorn Shed are a family owned company, founded right here in the UK. Their popcorn is a tasty step above your average sweet and salty. They have combined a perfect mix of flavours and textures to create their delicious and unique selection of gourmet popcorn. Not only does their popcorn taste amazing, but it is also made with natural ingredients and is gluten free too.
When Popcorn Shed kindly gifted me with some of their latest popcorn to try, I knew I wanted to do something different with it. I mean the popcorn itself is pretty jazzy with all the flavours you could think of from Pecan Pie to Berry-licious, so you can eat it exactly as it is (but I wanted to experiment a little bit).
I decided that popcorn is generally an all time favourite snack and I didn’t want to take away from that too much, especially as they already have such unique flavours, so I decided to make a trail mix with it. For anyone that hasn’t had trail mix or doesn’t know what it is (I had to explain it to Ryan). It’s basically just a mixture of snacks. Normally they are made up of things that are full of energy like nuts, dried fruit, chocolate, seeds etc and are ideal for picking at. I even think its name comes from the idea that you can take it anywhere because it’s lightweight, easy to pop in your bag and you can snack on it whenever (like walking along a trail).
The best part about this recipe is that you can adjust it however you like and experiment to your heart’s content with different ingredients and flavours. Below is my favourite combination, but don’t be afraid to try out something different if you think it would be nicer! Also, if you don’t have time to make the trail mix then Popcorn Shed is pretty yummy all by itself! You can see the variety of flavours to try on the Popcorn Shed website and you can also find where to buy it locally too (Amazon, Waitrose, Coop etc.).
Have you tried Popcorn Shed before? If not, what flavour looks like it would be your favourite? I would love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment below!
