It’s no secret that I love popcorn. It’s the snack I used to make myself after school as a teenager, and I still can’t see a movie in theaters without it. With the big blockbusters on the silver screen and late-night Netflix binge-watching on the computer screen, this is primo season for popcorn lovers.
I prefer to make my popcorn on the stove and not in the microwave. That fake butter is scary. It’s a good idea to have butter and olive oil on hand to make it easier to pop at home. You’ll also need a covered frying pan, a big ol’ bowl and some vessels to deliver toppings like salt and pepper, melted chocolate and spices.
Whether you like it sweet or salty, there are a few things every popcorn fanatic needs, especially if you want to make it fancy at home. These popcorn lover essentials would make great wedding or housewarming presents or just treats for yo’self, so snatch them up.
