Happy New Years Eve!

Today is the final day of 2016!! Jody's Popcorn can reminisce on a great year– full of new flavors including Sweet & Sassy and our Tropical Treats flavors. 

New Years traditions vary across different countries. We decided it would be fun to compare some of the most interesting traditions!

In Denmark, you may find a pile of broken dishes in front of someone's door. People will throw dishes at their friends' doors. 

In China, they may celebrate their new year by painting their front doors red to symbolize good fortune. Additionally, it is tradition to have a great feast. 

In Brazil, a boat is filled with jewelry, flowers, and candles and set forth from the Rio de Janeiro. 

In Spain, at the strike of midnight, it is customary to eat a grape at each ring of the clock. 

In Germany, they drop molten lead into cold water. Whatever shape it forms tells a story of a prediction for the future.

In America, we celebrate by going to parties, feasting, and popping champagne at midnight. One of our most notable traditions is the ball drop in Times Square. This tradition began in 1907! 

How do you celebrate New Years? We hope every one fun and safe time tonight, and don't forget to stop by Jody's Popcorn for some last minute snacks!

Popcorn Around the World

Popcorn Around the World

China: Street vendors use an interesting method to pop their corn. This method is believed to have been created during the Song dynasty! Some affectionately call it "The Popcorn Cannon."

Corn kernels are poured into a cast-iron canister that is sealed with a heavy lid and slowly turned over a fire. Rotisserie style! A pressure gauge determines that it has reached the right level, then a large canvas sack is put over the lid and the seal is released.

Watch this video, where you can see a Chinese vendor putting heated kernels in a large metal container and then releasing the pressure. There is a huge BOOM– all of the popcorn explodes at once. 

While this method makes quite a show in the streets, it is ok to prefer a little less excitement in our lives. But if you happen to be in China and see one of these, don't be alarmed! It'll only take a few seconds after the boom for the delicious smell of popcorn to reach you.

Simply melt marshmallows in a saucepan over medium heat and then stir in our Caramel Corn until each kernel is covered– it will be gooey. Make as little or as much as you want! 

At this point you can choose to add in chocolate chips, M&Ms, pretzels, peanuts... the possibilities are endless.

The fun part will be forming this mixture into a ball shape. You can choose to drizzle chocolate sauce or roll them in your favorite candy or snack. Then let it cool, cover it in plastic wrap, and enjoy!!
