Opulent Popcorn Snacks

Ordinary Popcorn Gets an Overhaul with Edible Gold Leaf Sprinkles

— December 16, 2014 — Lifestyle
With the addition of almonds, chocolate chunks, pretzels and edible gold leaf flakes, an ordinary theater treat suddenly becomes a gourmet popcorn snack. Created by the Honestly Yum blog in celebration of the Oscars, this snack blends savory and sweet.

Rather than opting to make quick-and-easy microwave popcorn, this snack makes use of homemade stovetop popcorn. For a healthier twist, instead of using peanut oil or butter, Honestly Yum used ghee—a clarified butter that has been revered in India for hundreds of years as a powerful healer of wounds, free radical fighter and immune system booster. As well as bringing a ton of benefits to the body, the use of ghee also gives the popcorn a buttery taste without all of the grease. To top it all off, this recipe is rounded out by adding in some indulgent movie theater snacks for extra crunch.
Trend Themes
1. Gourmet Popcorn Snacks - The creation of more sophisticated flavors and ingredients for popcorn snacks that cater to more refined tastes.
2. Healthy Alternatives for Movie Snacks - The use of healthier ingredients like ghee, nuts, and dark chocolate in movie snacks.
3. Luxurious Food Add-ons - The use of edible gold leaf flakes and other high-end ingredients to elevate the luxury factor of snacks and dishes.
Industry Implications
1. Snack Industry - There is a opportunity for snack companies to create more sophisticated and healthy snack options that cater to different markets.
2. Gourmet Food Industry - Gourmet food companies can tap into the trend of incorporating upscale ingredients to traditional snacks to create new products that cater to the high-end market.
3. Luxury Food Industry - The luxury food industry can expand into adding edible gold leaf flakes and other high-end ingredients in more dishes to cater to a more sophisticated clientele.
