Now, you can have kale with your popcorn! Photo by Hannah Kaminsky | THE NIBBLE.
Quinn Popcorn, developed by a young husband and wife team following all the bad press on microwave popcorn. They:
Made the bag without chemical coatings from the bag (PFOA, PFCs, plastic liners, etc.) while creating a grease-proof and compostable microwaveable bag.
Eliminated the susceptor (gray metal/plastic patch).
Use organic, non-GMO corn, with no preservatives or artificial ingredients; rBGH-free cheeses and expeller pressed oils that are high in omega-3s.
In their better-for-you, better-for-the-environment version, you pop the kernels in the microwave, then blend them in a bowl with the oil and seasonings provided in separate packets. It’s a feel-good product, currently available in six microwave flavors:
Hickory Smoked Cheddar
Just Sea Salt
Olive Oil & Herbs
Parmesan & Rosemary
Real Butter & Sea Salt
Vermont Maple & Sea Salt
There are also two ready-to-eat flavors, including:
Cheddar & Chipotle
Kale & Sea Salt
For those who need a boost to get on the kale bandwagon, start with a bag of this popcorn with tiny flecks of green, salted with a bit of sweetness.
The company calls these two flavors “Farm To Bag.” Each bag has a batch number for complete transparency, a first in the snacks industry.
The line is Certified Non GMO, Certified Gluten Free and whole grain (23g per serving, with 39 calories).
