Don't give cookies this holiday season - give popcorn instead! Everyone loves popcorn and this gourmet popcorn sampler of some of our delicious popcorn flavors and gives you a great gourmet popcorn taste variety.
Dell Cove Spices' deluxe gift set of old fashioned popping corn makes movie theater snacks pale in comparison. Each 10 oz tube makes about 10 quarts of popped popcorn.
Though you can use an air-popper with these popcorn varieties, they pop far better when you made by stove top. If you host a movie party at home, you'll love this set.
You will receive one tube each of:
Baby White - Very mild in flavor, this is one of our favorites. We love this popcorn because once it is popped, there are very few of those shell-like pieces that can get stuck in your teeth - known as hulls - that will be found in your popcorn bowl.
Black Pearl - Looks black on the outside, but pops white with an occasional gray hue. They tend to be a smaller corn when popped, but they carry more antioxidants than either the red or yellow. The kernels are very tiny, but pop really big and melt in your mouth. Because the kernels are so small, you get a greater number of kernels - and therefore a larger volume of popped corn - per tube.
Extra Large Amish Caramel - Fat and yellow, this is your classic movie theater popcorn, only better. Pops big, with a creamy texture and a mellow flavor.
Mushroom - The kernel is similar in appearance to the Extra Large - until you pop it. Then, wow! When we make caramel corn, this is the popcorn kernel we use. Packed with flavor, this produces a round, mushroom-style popped corn that is more dense and compact. And because it's round in shape, it holds up very well to being stirred in a pan. (We just love how its larger surface area clings to more of our popcorn seasonings.)
Northern Lights - A colorful blend of taste and texture, this popcorn mix harkens to the night sky during an Aurora Borealis. The kernel are a mix of black, a brown-bronze, purple and white colors - and all grown on the same cob. (Honest. It's just how these popcorn plants have naturally evolved over the past few years.) When it pops, the popped corn becomes various shades of white, ivory & pale yellow. Slightly sweet and quite crunchy.
Over the Rainbow - A colorful mixture of the blue, caramel, purple, red and white kernels that all grow naturally on the same corn cob. (Wild, but true.) Festive and fun for movie night.
Ruby Red - A deep, dramatic red hue that makes the kernels look like tiny little rubies. When it pops, the corn is white with a subtle yellow color. The texture is a nice mix of fluffy and crunchiness, and has a nut-like flavor.
Royal Purple - A deep, blue-purple color that pops white and has a slight nutty taste. Perfect for an afternoon snack.
The gift set also includes: 16 movie-themed popcorn bags; a brief description of the popcorn varieties; and directions on how to pop popcorn by stove top.
