If you love popcorn like I do, then you will think its fun to try out different oils, and popcorn varieties, and popping methods. With a little trial and error, you can find the perfect recipe to suit your family.
In spite of the fun involved with discovering the best popcorn combinations, some of us just don’t have the time. Fortunately, there are kits available that have all of the ingredients premeasured. Just because you like the taste of fresh homemade popcorn that doesn’t mean a few shortcuts aren’t handy.
Great Northern Popcorn, 8-oz. Portion Counts (Count of 24)
Great Northern, the maker of several of the best home theater popcorn machines has premeasured portion packs that include gourmet popcorn, coconut oil, and butter flavored salt. These portions are sold in 24 packs that contain either 2.5 ounce portion packs, 4 ounce portion packs, 6 ounce portion packs, or 8 ounce portion packs.
If you are using a 6 quart Popper then you would probably use the 4 ounce portion pack. These packs also have popping instructions on the back. You can leave the guesswork out of it with these instructions for commercial poppers, electric poppers, air poppers, and for popping on the top of the stove.
Nostalgia Electrics KPK400 Theater Popcorn Kit
Nostalgia Electrics makes a fun popcorn kit. This kit contains 1 pound of popcorn, and an 8 ounce bottle of butter flavored canola oil, and three bottles of seasonings. The seasoning flavors are nacho cheddar, white cheddar, and ranch.
This kit would be good for hot air poppers or any other popping machine that you have. This doesn’t actually come with the popcorn oil because the butter flavored canola oil is used as flavoring after the popcorn is popped. If you’ve ever wondered what the butter at the movie theater is it is butter flavored canola oil.
This kit is fairly popular and has received some good and bad reviews. Some people said the popcorn was stale, while others thought it tasted fine. The seasoning salts were good, and the butter flavored canola oil tastes like butter flavored canola oil.
Nostalgia Electrics KPP24, Popcorn, Oil & Salt Kit, 24-Count
These are more premeasured packets by Nostalgia Electrics. These 4 ounce packets come in a 24 pack. These contain natural popcorn, salt and seasonings, and three tablespoons of canola oil for popping.
This pack is a little different from the previous ones because this canola oil is actually used as popping oil instead of as a topping.
Mega-Pop Popcorn Kit
Mega-pop also makes a popcorn kit. This is an 8 ounce popcorn kit, so it is enough to use in your larger popper. These come in a 24 Count set and includes a coconut and canola oil combination, a salt kit, and popcorn.
These are also no measure and no mess, just cut the top open and pour and pop. This popcorn received high marks on taste and quality, and it is super easy to use.
