My Top 5 Favorite Popcorn Flavors (+Recipe)

cinnamon popcorn
I'm a HUGE popcorn fan, over the years I have also experimented and eaten some pretty crazy flavors. At fairs and carnivals you'll always find popcorn, butter, cheese and caramel are ALWAYS present. Despite the regular flavors being so popular, I once bought a bag of cinnamon popcorn and my mind was blown! The popcorn was a beautiful bright red and the taste was incredible! The moment I got the recipe I tried making it myself and succeeded. I always have my friends asking me to make a batch, I think I've gotten them as hooked as me! I love popcorn, its such a great light and airy snack that comes in many different varieties, my top 5 favorite popcorn flavors are:
1 - Cinnamon Popcorn - My all time favorite! Great flavor and wonderful color.
2 - Caramel Popcorn - Love it at all times.
3 - Cheesy Popcorn - I prefer to eat this during the holidays, not sure why.
4 - Butter Popcorn - Best to eat during the movies!
5 - Nuts & Popcorn - Not exactly a flavor but the mix is great!
Cinnamon Popcorn Recipe:
2 tablespoons vegetable oil1/2 cup unpopped popcorn1/2 cup butter2 tablespoons light corn syrup2 (2.25 ounce) packages cinnamon red hot candies

1. Heat oil in a large pot or saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour in the popcorn, cover, and shake a couple of times to coat the kernels with oil. When the corn starts to pop, shake pan continuously until popping stops. Pour popped corn into a large paper bag.
2. Combine the butter, corn syrup and red hot candies in a microwave safe bowl or saucepan. Heat, stirring occasionally until the candies have melted. Pour the hot syrup over the popped corn, and shake the bag for 1 minute, until completely coated. Cool, and serve.

Disclaimer: I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog for popcorn and was compensated. However, views & opinions are my own.
