What makes popcorn so popular during the holidays? I have no idea – from Harry & David’s moose munch to a slew of all things popcorn at The Popcorn Factory (where else, eh?), popcorn is a part of holiday traditions. If you’ve received popcorn holiday tins for a gift, then you understand. I’m surprise that we don’t leave a bowl of popcorn for Santa instead.
I like popcorn but I like it even more when it’s kettlecorn; so it takes serious discipline for me to avoid the kettlecorn booth at farmers’ markets. But it’s the holidays… so indulgence is in and discipline is still sort of in but not totally.
Whole Foods in Redmond has Popcorn Indiana on sale for 2 for $5 until 12/25. So if you’re like me and other sweetened popcorn lovers out there, then this sweet deal is for you. I don’t know if Whole Foods in other cities have the same sale, but why not check it out? All the bags have the Whole Trade Guarantee seal so by buying the product, you’re supporting a program that promotes “quality, premium price to the producer, better wages and working conditions, and the environment”. It’s a feel-good buy. How you’ll feel about all the calories after your indulgence is another subject.
