Are you hosting a Valentine’s Day party? Or are you just looking for a themed snack to enjoy on February 14th? We have a few ideas on how you can turn ordinary popcorn into a snack that can keep things either sweet or spicy (or both) on Valentine’s Day.

To start all you need is some plain popped popcorn.

Can Popcorn Go Bad?

Popcorn, one of America’s favorite snacks, is a great staple to keep in the kitchen at all times. Besides popping a big bowl of popcorn for movie night or a midnight snack, popcorn can be turned into desserts and sweets, and even used as toppings for ice cream.  Because this snack is so versatile, you may be tempted to buy popcorn in bulk and store for later. However, how long can popcorn stay in storage? Does it go bad?  Well the answer is “sort of, but not really.”


Stick To Your New Year’s Resolution With Snack Swaps

It’s a new month and a new year! Many of us make resolutions to achieve special goals for the near year. One common New Year’s resolution is to get in shape. This can mean going to the gym more, eating healthier, or taking up a physical activity as a hobby. Making simple changes to your daily eating habits can have a big influence on keeping your resolutions. One area in particular is snack food. While munching on crackers, chips, and cookies may be convenient, they don’t help the waistline.

Making some small swaps in your snacks with healthier options is just one step to eating healthier and helping you maintain your New Year’s resolution.
