Calling all popcorn lovers!
Did you know that National Popcorn Day is January 19th? In honor of my favorite snack, we’re sharing fun popcorn products we love – as well as a few yummy recipes, popcorn tips, gift ideas, and more!
One of our favorite popcorn products is this highly rated Salbree Microwave Popcorn Popper. It pops every kernel of popcorn perfectly in your microwave – NO oil needed! Plus, it is so easy to use – just expand the popper bowl, add the desired amount of kernels to the bowl based on the measurements on the side of the bowl, place the lid on it, and put it in the microwave for a couple minutes. Voila!
And I love that the Salbree Microwave Popcorn Popper collapses so you can easily store it away when done (also great for small apartments or college students). It’s dishwasher safe and BPA free, too!

Did you know that the Great Northern Premium Popcorn has been voted as the best-tasting popcorn in the U.S.A.?! The All-N-One packs include pre-measured amounts of gourmet popcorn, coconut oil and butter flavored salt to make perfect popcorn every time! Use it in a popper or on the stove. YUM!
Check out these POP-ular and yummy popped popcorn treats:
- Harry & David Gourmet Moose Munch
- Popcorn Indiana
- Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP – my sidekick, Michelle, is addicted to this popcorn!
- Smartfood – Collin loves this stuff, especially the white cheddar!
- Skinny Pop
- Popcornopolis Organic Kettle Corn
If you like birthday cake and popcorn as much as I do, you’ll love these two together in Trader Joe’s Birthday Cake Popcorn – it’s a party in a bag! Each five-ounce bag is filled with freshly popped popcorn covered in a sweet, vanilla-flavored glaze and then finished off with colorful confetti sprinkles.
Even sweeter, this poppin’ treat is made with NO artificial flavors or synthetic colors. In fact, the fun sprinkles are actually colored with black carrot juice concentrate, curcumin, and red radish powder! You can grab a bag…or five…at your local Trader Joe’s for just $1.99 each.
Looking for fun gift ideas for a popcorn lover?
These Chocolate Lovers Popcorn Pizzas are a fun and unique gift for someone who loves chocolate and popcorn! It includes a gourmet candy pizza with a milk chocolate crust, popcorn “cheese”, as well as a pretzel and chocolate candy pieces topping with white chocolate drizzled on top! YUM.
I also spotted a few premium popcorn flavors that would make unique gifts for any popcorn lover. This Bacon Toffee Caramel Popcorn would be fun for any bacon lover, and this G.H. Cretors “The Mix” Popcorn is perfect for anyone who loves a sweet/salty mix (it consists of buttery caramel corn and premium, aged cheddar cheese corn blend).
And how fun are these Retro Style Plastic Popcorn Containers for your next movie night at home?!
