Cheddar Popcorn - Why Buy Fresh?

in Popcorn

Cheddar, along with caramel, is one of the pillars of the flavored popcorn business. In sample packs, it is one flavor that is usually represented -- and with good reason. People flock to the tangy, salty, and slightly sweet taste of cheddar popcorn in droves, making it one of the highest selling varieties of popcorn in the entire world.

This type of cheese popcorn is made by preparing popping corn using a high temperature air popper. When the popcorn emerges hot and fluffy, it is then doused with real sharp cheddar cheese, which melds to the hot kernels to form a layer of cheese right on top of the salty fresh popcorn. This article explores why you should buy fresh cheddar popcorn as opposed to prepackaged microwavable popping corn.

Here's To Your Health

Popcorn that is prepared fresh is high in fiber which aides in digestion and helps promote healthy digestive function. Fresh popping corn is also low in fat and calories and contains no sugar or sodium. However, when the cheddar is added, there is an amount of sodium and sugar that are added along with the ingredient. Because natural cheese is added, gourmet popcorn is still a fairly healthy choice for people with dietary restrictions or people who are watching their weight.

Microwavable corn, on the other hand, is typically full of ingredients needed during the popping process. Also, much sodium, fat, and sugar are added prior to the preparation, which can make microwavable popping corn a health liability and a poor dietary choice.

Always Arrives Fresh

Fresh cheddar popcorn is just that, fresh. As opposed to microwavable popping corn, which can range in age from a few days to a few months old, gourmet popcorn is guaranteed to be fresh and is guaranteed to arrive on your doorstep still at the peak of its freshness and taste.

Another major difference between fresh and microwavable is the amount of preservatives that are included in the recipe. All-natural gourmet corn contains no preservatives. On the other hand, microwavable popping corn does contain numerous agents designed to keep it smelling, tasting, and looking fresh.

Where To Find Fresh Cheddar Popcorn

If you are trying to locate fresh popcorn, you have a couple of options. You may check your yellow pages for a gourmet shop or popcorn emporium in your neighborhood. You can also search online and buy from a trusted retailer on the Internet. The net gives you access to numerous different flavors and options. And because many companies ship their orders quickly, it will get there before you know it and arrive still at the peak of its freshness. Both methods have the potential to yield you results and salty snacks.
