Hey gals and guys! Today I’m excited to share my thoughts on popcorn pairing with Skinnypop popcorn and cocktails– this was right up my alley! One of my favorite things to do, especially on a Friday nights, after a long day of work is to cuddle up on the couch with my favorite TV show, pour myself a big glass of wine and make a huge bowl of popcorn.
These days, I prefer pre-popped popcorn over the original, Skinnypop has quickly become my favorite go to snack food, even when its not a Friday night. They offer several different flavors to satisfy any taste bud; by far my favorite it the aged white cheddar paired with a crisp glass of white wine. I love the tartness of the wine with the bold cheddar flavor of the popcorn. I keep both on hand regularly!
Skinnypop was generous enough to provide me with a pairing chart of great cocktail suggestions to go with every flavor of popcorn they offer.
Although, I am very partial to my wine pairings, I did try almost all of the options mentioned above and my favorite was the naturally sweet popcorn with the white peach sangria cocktail. This was the perfect after dinner snack to satisfy my sweet tooth; in my opinion you can never have too much sweet! I had so much fun pairing the different combos together, testing which one I preferred best, that I though this would be a fun thing to have at your next party. Make a batch of several of the different cocktail options with the different flavors of popcorn and let your guests decide what they think pairs best.
I’d love to know what you guys think about the pairing guide and what combos would you try. Also, if you tried any mentioned, or created your own pairing, I’d love to know your thoughts and what you came up with.
Until next time!
