{party trends} Popcorn and Pretzels ... for a Winning Super Bowl Party!

Planning your Super Bowl menu?  Add flavored popcorn and soft pretzels - one of the food trends predicted by Andrew Freemen & Co.

Need some inspiration?  My family is going to a Super Bowl party and I'm thinking about taking one of these snacks to share:

Bacon and Cashew Caramel Popcorn
My husband loves anything with bacon, and the combination of sweet and savory flavors is sure to be a hit with friends, too.
Time Saving Tip: use microwave popcorn

Soft Pretzels with Queso Poblano Sauce and Mustard Sauce
I have a weakness for soft pretzels ... dripping with butter or dipped in cheese!
Time Saving Tip: buy frozen pretzels at the grocery store

More inspiration?  Gourmet popcorn bars are popular at employee meetings and celebrations, mitzvahs and especially, wedding receptions.

So, what do you think of the popcorn and pretzel trend?  Thumbs up or down?

  1. Wow, my mouth is watering just from looking at the pictures. The gourmet popcorn looks very delicious and reminds me of the popcorn I usually get. All I can say is I wish I'm invited to whatever party you're throwing.
