Nostaligia is a key player in the recent resurgence of sweet coloured popcorn. It is even making an appearance at Weddings. It can be used as a favour, decoration or late-night snack at the reception. Pink is the traditional colour but there is no reason not to colour it with orange, blue, yellow or green. To up the whimsy-factor even more, do batches in a rainbow of colours and invite guests to fill their own snack bowls or favour bags.
Our Popcorn Boxes were recently featured in The Wedding Ring Magazine’s Favourite Things article. (See the top left picture on the second page)
The internet is full of recipes for Pink Popcorn. Here is one that I have tried. I suggest practising in the months prior to the wedding so that you have perfected the technique, experimented with quantities and also tested its shelf life. You may find that it must be made the day before or maybe it is just as fresh a week later. These are all things that you want to sort out without the pressure of the event looming.
