479° Popcorn: Sweet Flavors

Buttery caramel popcorn forms the basis of most of these sweet treats:

Chipotle Caramel + Almonds Popcorn
Sweet, hot and crunchy: This alluring popcorn is Crackerjacks taken to the zenith. Substitute almonds for the peanuts, use real handmade caramel and instead of a plastic prize, spice up the ante with smokey chipotle and some ancho chile.

Fleur De Sel Caramel Popcorn

Fleur de Sel is a delicate sea salt, a lovely counterpoint to buttery caramel (you may have noticed the proliferation of salted caramels at fine confectionery shops). When the two are combined, you get a delicious interplay of sweet and salty. As you nibble your way through the box, we invite you to pour yourself a glass of champagne and ponder the French paradox.

Ginger Sesame Caramel Popcorn
Inspired by the flavors of Chinatown, this buttery caramel corn confection is our favorite of the sweet popcorns (we love ginger). A gentle sweetness, tingly heat and nuttiness from the toasted sesame seeds had us at “Hello.” 


Every side of the box is beautifully designed. Here, the bottom of the Ginger Sesame Caramel popcorn box.

Vietnamese Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn
The popcorn cousin of cinnamon toast and doughnuts, this popcorn has an intense cinnamon flavor. Crunchy organic sugar add sweet counterpoint.

Serving Suggestions

Beyond a sweet snack, try the sweet flavors as:

  • Garnish on ice cream
  • Garnish on icing: cakes and cupcakes, for example

Now that you’re dying to try all the flavors, the news comes that you need to buy them in sampler packs, or collections. But that’s good news, since everything is so delicious.
