There’s always room for popcorn at the AKHA household. Especially when you toss it with delicious Stella Asiago Cheese and garlic salt. Garlasiago Popcorn is perfect for Movie Night. It’s the perfect treat for you family’s movie night.
We grew up loving popcorn. Any kind of popcorn, to be honest. Microwave, homemade, movie theater, bagged; you name it we loved it. Popcorn was a way of life when I was growing up.
No matter what we had for dinner or where we went for dinner or how stuffed we got at dinner; there was always room for popcorn. It was like we had this reserve stomach just for popcorn. Dinner and a movie was constant in our house especially when it was double feature with free popcorn refills. What? You didn’t have that? Oh man! They were THE BEST! It was a movie premier so they’d show the premier and invite you to stay for a regular feature afterwards. Two two two for the price of one! And a family of four? SCORE!
So, yes, we loved popcorn. Mom loved it so much that when Dad was out of town, we used to have it for dinner! We’d pop in a chick flick – ‘cause Dad really didn’t like them – and pop a HUGE Tupperware bowl full of popcorn for the three of us girls and just chow down. While he was out of town we’d have buttered noodles and hot dogs. Not together. But we’d have things for dinner Dad didn’t approve of because he was a three squares a day man.
Now that I have my own “family” we have new love for popcorn! The hubs bought a hot air popper so we could have perfectly popped popcorn without all the fat and butter of a stove top popper or microwave popcorn. We did the stove top route. We even purchased one of those whirly pop things. It lasted a few years, but when he got the air popper we were hooked! True popcorn flavor and none of the grease.
It’s really funny. He gets up off the couch and does this “sneak” into the kitchen. I hear him open the cabinet, take out the popper, go into the pantry and grab the popcorn, and then I hear that delicious sound of the kernels being poured into the measuring cup. I’m up. Off the couch and in the kitchen to help toss the popcorn as he lightly sprays it with butter and sprinkles it with Asiago and garlic salt. Then it’s back to the couch to snuggle up with the bowl, the begging dog, and a movie. Perfect!
When you have pure popcorn flavor like that, you can only top it with the best flavors. Flavors that will really pop in your mouth and make your popcorn more fantabulous! I’m talking about Stella cheese Asiago Aged. Oh yeah, baby. That salty, cheesy flavor is perfect for the crunchy popcorn. Then toss in some garlic salt and I’m hooked. Line and sinker! I have found my new favorite popcorn. This one. Garlasiago Popcorn.
