There are hundreds of ways to top popcorn to make it a fun treat and snack.

Here's two of our favorites: a sweet and savory version

Cinnamon roll is one yummy example.... simply make a powdered sugar frosting (powdered sugar with a bit of water or lemon juice until it forms a paste) and then mix this in the popcorn and sprinkle with cinnamon - YUM!! That is just one of hundreds of combinations!

The favorite adult version is a bit of real butter, real salt, and then sprinkled with Turmeric and Cayenne pepper! It is so good! Plus we get the benefits of the spices like Turmeric!
