Butterkist Savoury Popcorn

Oh. Em. Gee.
I'll get to this really good Popcorn in a moment but first I should probably say Hello, I'm back. It's been a while and I've missed writing my random ramblings. Where have I been? Oh, just here, sweating, stomach in washing machine mode with nausea, swollen eyes and an added dose of angry bladder. Did I mention sweating? That's been the main theme during my absence.

The heat here in London has been far too much for me to handle, in turning my stomach and giving me a horrid sick feeling it meant that I couldn't bear the thought of eating a week or so ago and that resulted in a lovely build up of stomach acid that was incredibly painful and difficult to budge. I spent two whole sweaty days languishing on the sofa watching Sky News on Royal Baby watch then on Royal Baby name watch. I hardly ever watch the news let alone for two days straight. 

To blog would have been impossible, my brain is only just beginning to function.

As for my eyes, well that was a hair dye rinsing incident that I will not be repeating anytime soon. Bladder, who knows? The heat has funny effects on my body and I HATE IT. I'm made for a cool climate me.

So that's why I've been neglecting my dear blog but I'm back for sure and will endeavour to find things to post about until I get back to properly experimenting in the kitchen again.

So, the Popcorn. Oh, the Popcorn. I could eat bucket loads of this stuff, especially the Salt and Vinegar one. There's not much to describe really, Sour Cream and Chives and Sea Salt and Balsamic Vinegar flavours, much like my crisps I like a lot of flavour and these are quite strong which I love. There's also a Barbecue flavour which I'm sure The Glutenite told me wasn't gluten free hence why he didn't get them for me but looking on the Butterkist website it says they're safe.

I've not seen these in a supermarket, The Glutenite randomly picked these up for me from our local mini mart type of shop. 

We've been making our own Popcorn flavours for years now but I have no idea how to replicate vinegar in powdered form so that's why the Balsamic one is so appealing. Lovely Popcorn, great flavours, nothing else to add really. Another gluten free snackett is always good though.

It's funny how trendy savoury flavoured Popcorn is now, I remember some guys on Dragon's Den a few years back who made it sound like they had invented the wheel. Now there's loads of companies making the stuff, the most interesting of which for me is Joe and Seph's who have a Gin and Tonic Flavour. HELLO. I'm eagerly awaiting an update of this page for a bargain and next day delivery.

All but three of the current Joe and Seph's flavours are gluten free, the ones to watch out for are Peanut Satay, Soya and Sesame and Caramel, Macchiato and Whiskey but always check labels and product info regardless, we all know how things change.

So yes, I'm looking forward to indulging in some Gin and Tonic Popcorn, especially since I had some Forman and Son Gin and Tonic Cured Salmon a few weeks ago and it was Amazing. Never been that much of a fan of the drink but in food form I'm loving it thus far.

It's been so long since I posted a recipe, there have been a few little experiments but nothing really postable as of yet, I've not been trying too hard due to the heat. I'd love something to adapt to gluten free but I've covered pretty much everything I can think of. If anyone has any suggestions please share.
