    No matter which movie you choose, one thing stays the same–all movie nights require snacks! While we love the simplicity of buttered popcorn, we also love to shake it up from time to time. Popcorn is one of those magical snacks that taste great with simple toppings but is also a delicious vessel for creative toppings and seasonings. These sweet popcorn flavourings are a great way to add a little variety to your movie night.

    Let’s get popping…
