On Trend: Popcorn
The Fancy Food Show took place in Washington earlier this month and just like any other food event, influencers gathered to sniff out the top trends. Japanese and booze-inspired fare came out as favorites, as well as cherries and DIY kits. My favorite yield, however, is popcorn.
Manufacturers dress up popcorn in cheese, truffles and as a double-trend, bourbon, to turn this homely snack into a celebrity. But as high as popcorn climbs on the social ladder, it will always remain an innocent treat found on stove tops and in between movie seat cushions.
Happy Hour Kettle Corn, popping at the Cleveland State University Market, makes sure the good ole fashion snack continues to find happy mouths. Here’s a quick video of the making of kettle corn: 8 pounds of corn popped and seasoned in less than 3 minutes.
