The perfect snack for game nights.

Kitchen Tips

We prefer ghee— which has the water and milk solids removed—over regular butter, as it doesn’t make popcorn soggy.

Furikake is a dry Japanese seasoning, typically composed of bonito (dried fish), sesame seeds, nori, sugar and salt, used to season rice or fish. Look for it at your local Asian grocery store.
