479I love popcorn, in fact I think I am a popcorn-aholic.  There have been days in my life where I ate popcorn pretty much for every meal – or at the least there were days where I ate nothing but popcorn.  Can you imagine?  I am not necessarily proud of this fact, but heck, I loved it.

I like others who have a similar fondness for the perfect food, and I think there is a special place in heaven for those who decide to build a business around the stuff, like the folks at 479° Popcorn.

About 479° Popcorn: “479° Popcorn began with a fond childhood memory of cozy evenings spent playing cards and devouring fresh popcorn with my family. Over the years, I experimented with making my own organic popcorn and flavoring it with exotic seasonings inspired by my international upbringing and training at Le Cordon Bleu in London. In the process, I came upon the discovery that 479 degrees Fahrenheit is the optimal temperature for popping corn. I knew immediately that this would be the name of my popcorn company, because it reflects the careful attention to detail that I work so hard to incorporate into every single element of the business, from the pristine ingredients to the beautiful packaging to the avid dedication to customer satisfaction.”

There are plenty of places where you can order pre-popped flavored popcorn, and I have to tell you that I have never been a fan of that stuff.  The Pop it Yourself method employed by 479° Popcorn is the way to go and I think it makes a wonderful gift.

I like the Sweet + Savory P.I.Y. Kit: “Organic heirloom popcorn meets mouthwatering flavor in this do-it-yourself popcorn kit. These colorful kernels contain special antioxidants that pack a healthy punch. Pop a batch and season it with one of our delicious salt + sugar blends, then scoop it into our stylish popcorn cones to turn any occasion into a party.”
