479° Popcorn for the Connoisseur


I know what you are thinking. Popcorn and the Connoisseur…Noooo!

Well…yesssss!

Is there anybody out there that has not sat and watched a movie and had some popcorn? I think not..! And what does the Connoisseur do in regards to popcorn? Just like everything else, locate something that has been raised to the top shelf…find that truly gourmet version of the crunchy puffed kernel.

What exactly does 479° have to do with all of this? Two things… the first being that it is supposedly the optimum temperature for popping corn (that’s Fahrenheit, not Celsius). It also happens to be the name of a company that makes high quality organic popcorn.

The brainchild of one Jean Arnold, 479° Popcorn produces a variety of popped kernels, one of which is sure to catch your eye. You can start with a little Black Truffle with White Cheddar and move to a Chipotle Caramel with Almonds. How about a bite of Ginger Sesame Caramel or maybe some Madras Curry Coconut..? Some exotic mixes of ingredients sure to delight the taste buds. Give them a try and let us know what you think.

Anyone up for a movie..?
