3 Scrumptious Popcorn Recipes To Enjoy On National Popcorn Day

Ever since I can remember popcorn has been my weakness. This addiction has been passed on to me by my mom. Since I’m a popcorn pro, I’ve perfected  how I like to enjoy this old time snack. If its microwaved, I do not want it. The only way that I can enjoy it is fresh off of a stove or from a air popper.

If you’re looking for ways to spice up your popcorn game, I have three scrumptious recipes that are sure to please.
