479° Popcorn : Savory Flavors

Some people like savory foods, some prefer sweets, some are omnivores. On this page, we’ll look at the savory flavors of 479° Popcorn.

Alderwood Smoked Sea Salt Popcorn
Salted popcorn dons a cloak of sophistication, with alderwood smoked sea salt instead of supermarket sodium chloride. Alderwood salt is coarse-grained sea salt that’s been smoked over Northwest red alderwood. The popcorn is drizzled with organic olive oil and tossed with the salt.

Black Truffles + White Cheddar Popcorn

Holy cheese corn, Batman: Here’s a popcorn that would be served by Bruce Wayne at the mansion. The distinctive aroma of black truffles beckons from the bag. The popcorn is drizzled with premium truffle oil and finished with organic white Cheddar. A light, yet most sophisticated twist on cheese corn.

Madras Curry Coconut + Cashews Popcorn
The house organic Madras curry is hand-blended each week, combining chiles, paprika and turmeric. The popcorn is tossed with the curry, toasted organic coconut and whole spiced cashews for a knockout result: It’s our favorite of the savories, the winner among winners.

Madras Curry Coconut + Cashews: Almost as good as a trip to the Taj Mahal.

Pimentòn de La Vera Popcorn
Pimentòn de La Vera, or Spanish smoked sweet paprika, is not bland supermarket paprika and it’s different from traditional Hungarian paprika. The pimientos are grown in the La Vera microclimate of Spain’s Extremadura region, by the Tietar River. The pods are harvested and dried over a slow-oak fire for several weeks. The paprika is milled with heavy stone wheels. The result is a unique sweet-and-smokey flavor. Enjoy it with some flamenco music.

Serving Suggestions

479° Popcorn is so much more than a snack from the box. Enjoy it that way, of course, but also:

  • Serve it with cocktails
  • Use it as a garnish—toss some atop salads and soups
  • Use it for canapés—top a spread on a cracker or bread round with fresh herbs plus a flavorful kernel
