5 Ways to Celebrate National Popcorn Day & A Special Giveaway

Posted on: January 11th, 2017 by

Melanie first wrote this post about ways to celebrate National Popcorn Day back in 2014. This year we’re happy to update it with a special giveaway from our friends at Netflix DVD.com.


National Popcorn Day


Whether you prefer air popped, microwaved, stove top or theater style with lots of butter … popcorn is a snack we can’t resist! Years ago I got a most useful gift of a full size popcorn machine so it’s a frequent snack in our house. But you don’t need a fancy machine to make it fun – stove top Jiffy Pop is an event here as well!


Did you know that January 19th is National Popcorn Day?

January 19th is National Popcorn Day. It’s a great reason to snack on some popcorn but also to learn some more about that popular theater snack. Give one or all of the following ideas a try.


5 Ways to Celebrate National Popcorn Day

  • Popcorn BookPopcorn tastes great with more than just butter. One of my favorite seasonings is yeast powder with celery salt and dill. Sounds weird but it’s great, and healthy! Popcorn can be sweet, salty or savory. Go ahead and experiment with some of your seasonings in your spice cabinet. Find more ideas at The Popcorn Board. We’d love to know what toppings do you add to your popcorn?
  • Try a recipe for a dessert or treat with popcorn. We tried Brown Sugar lollipops . They were messy and didn’t turn out into balls for us but it was fun trying and still tasted good.
  • Teach your kids about the science and history of popcorn with coloring pages, worksheets, and books, also listed on The Popcorn Board’s website. We read one titled Popcorn, by Alex Moran that we found at our local library. You can get it through our Amazon link. It made us crave popcorn, of course!
  • Of course stringing popcorn is a Christmas pastime, but you can string popcorn anytime for a treat for the birds. Pop extra kernels and give them a treat.
  • Pick out a special family movie from Netflix DVD.com. Put it in your queue and get it in time for National Popcorn Day on January 19 or soon after.


You can also learn more about National Popcorn Day at their site, but before you do that we have some more National Popcorn Day fun for you.
