Help! Let's save ourselves from tutti-freaky, day-glow popcorn filled with artificial flavors and colors, and instead enjoy some popcorn deliciousness that uses real ingredients.

This project is my way of taking back America's favorite snack food, and making popcorn that we can get excited about. I've created my own unique recipes using Ohio grown popcorn, local butter, natural flavors, fruits, nuts, spices, and creativity. Everybody loves popcorn, so I've made sure to dream up some dairy-free, and vegan options so we can all enjoy snack time.

My plan is to pop fresh, hot popcorn for my unique recipes, and offer them up from a walk up window right in downtown Kent, Ohio. Whether you're here for Kent State University, the folk music festival or cruising down the hike and bike trail- you're going get hungry. I want to offer you an original Ohio popcorn experience with a small, but changing menu of unique popcorn creations.

Some recipes I've developed so far, include my own Caramel Popcorn, Sea Salt Kettle Popcorn, Firehouse Caramel (it gets a spicy kick from cayenne pepper- I taste tested it on Kent Firefighters), Espresso Popcorn, Buttery Almond Toffee, Cajun Kettle Popcorn, Gingerbread Crunch Popcorn (a molasses, ginger, cinnamon trio for the holidays), and more recipes that are still in development like a dairy-free chocolate, caramel whiskey and ginger and five spice combo.

I need a big popcorn popper to create the ultimate noshing experience- that's why I'm looking for pledges. Support me in my quest to make popcorn delicious again, and we can snack it up at a Popcorn Party, or you can have your own popcorn party at home!

Thanks so much for checking out my project.
