Pepperoni Pizza Popcorn

*This post is brought to you by Pop Secret, my favorite light and fluffy popcorn that brings families together*

One of my family’s favorite snacks is popcorn; I swear my girls could eat it almost every day. We normally pop our corn when we need a quick and light snack, during play time, study time or during family movie time. Sometimes I like to jazz up the popcorn to get my family excited and to make their taste buds and tummy happy. The other night my girls had a friend over and wanted to order pizza and since this mom is cheap, I decided to make them the next best thing, Pepperoni Pizza Popcorn featuring Pop Secret.

Pepperoni Pizza Popcorn is so easy to make and the great thing about it is that you can change up the pizza flavor for each family member. For my girls I decided to make this popcorn extra cheesy with a lot of pepperoni. They absolutely loved it.

As I said above, my girls love to snack on popcorn almost every day, so on Martin Luther King Day we decided to do our studies but make them a little bit more fun. I let them help me build a fort! Who doesn’t love to learn their lessons in a fort with a big bag of hot and fluffy Pop Secret popcorn? Their fort was perfect because it was fit for two little queens and they were so much more focused on the  lesson for the day. Forts always seem to make everything better.

My family loves Pop Secret popcorn because it is so fresh and fluffy. It is our go to popcorn not only for the quality but because it comes in so many amazing varieties.

What are some ways that popcorn brings your family together?
