Added home made toppings for your favourite sweet popcorn

Thursday, 23 October 2014 10:32:11 Europe/London

Sweet popcorn

The most popular snack with our customers lately has to be our sweet popcorn. A huge serving of around three cups of popcorn is a mighty whole grain snack with minimal calories and fat. It also provides a great serving of fibre too. For some the sweet popcorn is absolutely the only way to go but for others on special occasions they like to add a little something extra. This can be disastrous when your experimental topping goes wrong so here we’ve found some great topping ideas for fewer than 150 calories that will add extra zing in plenty of ways.

As soon as your popcorn has arrived from us here at Empire it’ll be ready for some of your homemade toppings. To make your herbs, spices and seasonings to stick you’re going to need a little liquid such as oil. A little goes a long way so use it sparingly. Choices are usually between olive oil, butter, truffle oil or even coconut oil. The tip is to add half of your sweet popcorn to the bowl, pour on half of your liquid and then add the rest of the popcorn and the rest of the liquid. This makes for better distribution of the ingredients. Then it’s time to get down to business and start adding your toppings. Here are our favourites…

Chocolate

When adding chocolate as a topping we suggest heating your sweet popcorn a little in the microwave. Then sprinkle on a teaspoon of chocolate chips. You don’t need any fat just a pinch of salt. Toss it well and make sure you have a few napkins to hand as this one can get messy. You can always swap the chocolate for other flavours such as butterscotch or mint chocolate.

Cinnamon-sugar

For this you’ll need unsalted butter or coconut oil, sugar and cinnamon to taste. Sprinkle the sugar on the buttered popcorn and then shake on the cinnamon. It’s that simple. You could also try so many other great combinations such as sugar and chai spices, powdered ginger and sugar or even vanilla sugar.

Buttery Maple

Drizzle on just one teaspoon of salted butter and one teaspoon of maple syrup. For this one we suggest you eat immediately as it can get a little soggy in places. For even more added flavour you could even add a sprinkle of rosemary or black pepper.

Don’t worry if this all sounds a bit too much like hard work because here at Empire Popcorn and Confectionary Company we have a wide variety of gourmet flavours that we’ll deliver straight to your door. So no matter what sort of mood you’re in, we’ll have a tasty option to suit. We even supply a fantastic range of hand made fair ground Candyfloss too. For the best in quality when it comes to sweet popcorn and any other flavour popcorn for that matter, there’s only one place to go and that’s here at Empire.

Could our SWEET POPCORN be the next big thing?

Buy Sweet Popcorn

Rice, potatoes, pasta and beans all have a long history as flavour transmitters i.e. foods that will readily take on the flavours of other foods that they’re cooked with or carry the flavours of whatever’s ladled on top of them. Now however, there’s a new wonder in town ready and willing to take the title on the flavour train and that’s our very own popcorn. Whether it’s salty, buttered or even SWEET popcorn you usually eat, here at Empire we’re changing that up. It must now be known that one of our most favourite snacks is no longer content being simply salted or sweet. It wants more flavour, more taste and it wants to give eaters an explosion, a sensation in fact when they try it. It’s begging for curry powder, for Thai sauce and for the sweet aromas of the Jamaican shores. Suffice to say our good old sweet POPCORN has grown bored and is waiting to party.

Here at Empire one of the reasons we adore popcorn so very much is because you can quite simply throw anything at it and it takes on the flavour. There are so many different routes to try and so many wonderful flavours to behold. It can literally be anything you want it to be, sweet or savoury. Flavoured popcorn is hardly new, first introduced in the United States. As with a lot of things however the UK have grabbed hold of it and made it there own introducing some of the most original flavours. At Empire we know it’s not just about toffee or buttered anymore. Popcorn really is great because it’s the perfect vehicle for other flavours and experiments. You can never get bored of it when it’s always changing.

The response in the UK too says it all. No matter what flavours we’ve offered, the people of the UK have been more than willing to try it and the reviews have left us very happy indeed. With flavours on offer from Hot Madras, Sweet and Spicy Jamaican, Sweet Pink Strawberry and even Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper the plain old popcorn of the past has been taken to an entire new level.

What makes it great is that you can even try it home, whether you buy our unpopped kernels or even simply purchase our salted popcorn you can still add ingredients at home to make it even more suited to your individual tastes. Popcorn never really leaves our minds because whether we are out at the movies or enjoying a DVD at home, it’s always wanted so why not make it even more delicious than it already is?

If you like to keep things simple, then take a peek at the flavours we have on offer here at Empire. There’s one to suit everyone and while you’re at it why not check out our fresh handmade candyfloss too? Here at Empire we dare you to take a step beyond the average Sweet popcorn.
