What candy goes best with popcorn?
There are many candy options to pair with popcorn, but for a Spider-Man themed snack I needed red candy. I used the ACT II Butter popcorn with sour cherry candy for this delicious sweet, sour and salty candy popcorn recipe.
I love this butter popcorn because you get the perfect balance of buttery and salty taste in every fluffy kernel! The mixture of the red sour cherry candy along with this delicious buttery popcorn makes it perfect for a movie night Spider-Man snack!
