Summer is in full swing and that means beach days and hanging by the pool. Well…maybe for you, but this grad student isn’t going to see the beach for awhile. But I can dream right?
And nothing helps me dream about sand in my toes more right now than this Tropical Popcorn Crunch. The flavors of pineapple and coconut make me close my eyes and picture Gulf waves and warm breezes. It’s almost like having a Pina Colada in my hand…almost.
Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks. It’s light, but satisfying. Crunchy and flavorful. One of the brands I always reach for? SkinnyPop. Their popcorn comes in a few simple, yet flavorful flavors, including Sea Salt and Pepper, Jalapeno, White Cheddar and Naturally Sweet. It’s ready for snacking right out of the bag. I love it for afternoon snacking or night time movie watching.
And it’s great to get creative with! This Tropical Popcorn Crunch is a cinch to put together, making it easy to throw in your beach bag or to whip up before an impromptu get together. I used SkinnyPop’s Sea Salt and Pepper flavor because it’s one of my go-to’s, but really any flavor would go great with this mix.
Now, don’t let me hold you back from your beach day planning. Just promise you’ll pack this snack and let me know how the salt air felt against your face.
