{Foodie Week} Sweet & Salty Popcorn


A favorite snack around here is air-popped popcorn. It's a delicious, inexpensive, low-calorie, high fiber snack that we can really feel good about eating!

 I don't know about you, but when it comes to popcorn, I am partial to the ever famous sweet/salty combo. Oh, kettle corn...

However, I recently stumbled upon what is my new favorite combo. It really hits the spot when I'm hankering a sweet & salty snack, but with way less sugar than kettle corn! The addition of coconut oil infuses a lovely hint of exotic sweetness while the dark chocolate melts into the warm kernels, all balanced out by the touch of sea salt - be still my heart!! And because dark chocolate is so rich, it doesn't take much to satisfy a pesky sweet tooth!

I can definitely get on board with healthy snacks that tastes awesome.

Too funny! I love the smell and idea of movie popcorn, but every single time I give on I end up feeling sooo sick :( Chris always has to remind me of this when I want to buy some!
