Recently Tropical Traditions sent me a quart of their Gold Label virgin Coconut Oil to try. Having sampled a couple of their other products, I knew that I was in for a treat. I opened my jar and took a whiff and it smelled full of coconut goodness. While perusing the Tropical Traditions recipes for ideas, I was immediately drawn to a recipe for movie popcorn. Seeing as how I basically never get to go to the movies now that I've had kids (and we're on such a tight budget), movie popcorn seemed like the perfect special snack.
Supposedly, movie theatres use coconut oil to make their popcorn so tasty! I never knew that. I immediately whipped out our Whirley Pop and put in 3 tbsp. coconut oil plus 1/2 cup of popcorn. Soon, the smell of popcorn filled the air, and it wasn't the normal smell of when I make popcorn. Oh no, it smelled just like movie popcorn. I kid you not.
Following the guidelines of the recipe, I drizzled it with some melted butter and salt after it was popped, and then dished out bowls for myself and the boys. And you know what? It tasted just like movie popcorn. That decadent combination of salt, butter, popcorn and...coconut oil!
