Elizabeth Eats: Quinn Popcorn

Popcorn is a staple in my diet. No joke. Which isn't a bad thing considering that it's a whole grain and rich in antioxidants. 

I grew up on homemade airpopped-with honey or Parmesan, garlic and sea salt (thanks Mom!).  If I'm going to watch a movie or TV I demand that J makes a batch. Because he's really really good at it. I can't quite remember the last time I've had microwave popcorn, until I met Quinn Popcorn.
A Local Boston company, Quinn is reinventing microwave popcorn. 

Kristy and Colter started this company when Kristy gave birth to her son Quinn and was craving a microwavable popcorn that was all natural in a bag that didn't contain PFOAs (chemicals in microwave bags that leak into the food). THEIR bags are compostable and made of paper. They source their non-GMO corn from a co-op of farmers. You can make it on the stovetop or in the microwave-your choice! And because the oil and flavorings are in a separate packet you can add as little or as much as you want.

Plus their flavors are pretty rad: 
Parmesan Rosemary
Lemon Sea Salt (using real lemon-no extracts here!)
Vt Maple Syrup (my personal favorite)

Wanna try? You can find them at these stores or online at

Happy Popping!

What's your favorite way to make/flavor popcorn?

I'm not a big popcorn person, but I think I would love those flavors. Next time I am in New England, detour to Whole Foods for these guys!

Argh, it's sold out online everywhere! They need to start selling this stuff on the west coast!

I've tasted this popcorn and it's very delicious and tasty. I hope we could also use our popcorn popper machines and create yummy popcorn like this.
