Our Buttery Classic is BACK!
After a long vacation, our original Movie Night Crunch has returned for your crunching pleasure!
This is our answer to the question, “Will you ever make just a ‘plain’ popcorn?” What fun is just “plain” popcorn? Movie Night Crunch is what movie theater popcorn SHOULD taste like! We pop it fresh with real butter, not butter flavoring (or that awful powdered stuff!) and hit it with just enough sea salt. We strive for “just salty enough” so that the true taste of the popcorn can shine. Authentic popcorn pleasure, pure and simple.
INGREDIENTS: popcorn, butter, canola oil, salt.
ALLERGEN INFORMATION: Contains milk (butter). Produced in a kitchen that also processes peanuts, tree nuts, milk and soy. This product is gluten-free.
The Rest of the Story…
Sadly, the popcorn that we’re used to eating in a movie theater is over-salted and coated in a greasy combination of tropical oils, artificial flavorings and colors… without a single drop of butter. It never lives up to the aroma, but we buy it and eat it anyway.
Microwave versions of “movie theater style” popcorn are even worse. If you’re patient enough to pop popcorn at home and melt your own butter you have a chance at some decently good popcorn… as long as you have a light touch with the butter. Otherwise, you’ve got soggy popcorn.
During the past few years as I’ve presented many gallons of popcorn to friends and family for samples, I was often asked if we would ever produce a simple and straight “plain” popcorn with salt. Nothing much in that idea inspired me. After all, what was the challenge in it? I want any flavor that we bring to market to have something more going for it, something that can not easily be made at home… something worthy of the name “CrunchDaddy” and worth serving to our customers.
I knew that we could produce a buttery popcorn that was flavored with real butter and without a hint of artificial flavors or colors. The result is what we now call “Movie Night Crunch”!
