Kernel Season’s Seasoning Review & Giveaway #Kernelseasons #Shakeupyourflavor

It’s no secret that my family watches a lot of movies. It’s also no secret that movies often require snacks. Our family’s favorite is popcorn. Movies and popcorn pretty much come as a pair around here. Kind of like peanut butter and jelly. I just can’t imagine one without the other. Being a self proclaimed expert in both movies and snacks, I’m thrilled to have recently receive a variety of Kernel Season’s seasoning shakers to review here on my blog. I love the idea of kicking up our popcorn a notch by shaking on some flavor.

It all started back in 1999, when college student Brian Taylor was looking for a way to add some pop to his favorite snack, popcorn. In 2000, Brian teamed up with experienced flavor experts to perfect the recipes and began developing a seasoning line. In 2005, Kernel Season’s Popcorn Seasoning started shaking up the flavor in grocery stores, movie theaters and millions of homes around the globe. Kernel Season’s is now the leader in the popcorn-seasoning category.

Popcorn lovers be prepared – Kernel Season’s seasoning is available in more than a dozen flavors, and with an 18 month shelf life, you have time to experience them all. This is one product my family has been more than happy to help me review. While our teenage daughter and I might not agree on the amount of seasoning to add to our popcorn (she adds way too much), we can agree that Kernel Season’s Caramel seasoning is the bomb! Though the geek in me does love some Bacon Cheddar – come on’ it’s bacon. On my popcorn – bacon! My husband is a fan of the Garlic Parmesan, and my niece chose the Ranch seasoning as her favorite. Also high on the list is the White Cheddar seasoning. In-fact it might just be our first empty shaker.

It’s been so much fun sharing Kernel Season’s Seasoning and asking for opinions. The only flavor photoed above that has not been loved is the Kettle Corn. I’m not sure what happened there, when all the rest are so darn good.

More than just on top of popcorn, Kernel Season’s Seasoning shakes up the flavor of so many other foods. So far I’ve tried Kernel Season’s Ranch seasoning on corn on the cob, Butter + Bacon Cheddar on baked potatoes and White Cheddar on fresh green beans. All were delicious. From pork chops to milk shakes you can find all kinds of fun recipes to try on the Kernel Season’s Recipe page. Also, don’t forget to check each shaker cap for a fun little flavor tip.

Very Berry Holiday Tree featuring Driscoll’s Berries #3pmSnack

If you are looking for a fun family activity and eye-catching centerpiece? Check out this Very Berry Holiday Tree!

Baddish-Driscoll-Berrytree-HR

Special equipment: one floral foam or green Styrofoam cone measuring 4-5 inches in diameter at the base and 12 inches high; one box of toothpicks
Four 1-kb containers of fresh Driscoll strawberries
1 bunch fresh mint
1 slice from a carambola fruit (also known as star fruit)*
*Note: If you can’t find a carambola, you can use a 1-inch star-shaped cookie cutter to cut out a star shape from a mango slice instead.

1. Wash the strawberries and blot them dry with paper towels. Pull off the green stem from each strawberry. Reserve a perfect strawberry for the top of the ‘tree’.

2. Push a toothpick halfway into the side of the cone, about 1/2 inch from the bottom edge. Secure a strawberry to the toothpick, piercing it through the stem end. Secure another strawberry right next to the first one. Continue securing strawberries to the cone in circular rows up to its top, covering the cone completely. Secure the reserved strawberry to the top of the tree.

3. Remove some mint leaves from the bunch of mint and tuck them between the berries, placing them at about 3-inch intervals.

4. Secure the star-shaped carambola or mango slice to the top of the cone using a toothpicks

Easy, yet impressive! I’m planning to have two of these on my table this Christmas morning during our annual family breakfast.
