10 Sweet and Savory Popcorn Recipes to Celebrate National Popcorn Day

January 19, 2014 is National Popcorn Day.  My son thought it was really cool that there is a holiday for popcorn since it is one of his favorite snacks. He and his Nana have watched cartoons and movies since he was a little boy with popcorn as their snack.  At least once a month now, he wants us to have movie night with popcorn at our house. My husband and I don’t want to have just plain popcorn all the time so I add different ingredients to change the taste, sometimes savory and sometimes sweet, for us but Little Buddy still wants his plain.

Let’s celebrate National Popcorn Day with one of these 10 sweet and savory popcorn recipes that my friends and I have made.
