My Favorite Holiday Tradition

One of my ALL time favorite holiday traditions is to make a pallet, grab some popcorn, and watch christmas movies! For those who did not grow up making pallets, it is basically just a giant stack of blankets and pillows, aka the best way to watch a movie! We recently added something new to our tradition; Popcornopolis! A LA based gourmet popcorn company that just launched their Organic Nearly Naked Popcorn bag in select Costco locations for a limited time!

Popcornopolis has been dubbed the World’s Best Gourmet Popcorn and is farm-fresh, lightly-tossed in coconut oil, certified gluten free, whole-grain, and only 38 calories per cup!! No holiday snacking guilt happening here!!!

Jackson and I were blown away by the giant bags that are big enough for the entire family! He would have ate the entire bag if I would have let him, haha! We watched one of my all time favorite holiday movies, Home Alone, snuggled with our pups, and ate popcorn surrounded by lights. It was absolutely perfect!! I highly suggest running to your nearest Costco grabbing a bag of Popcornopolis, making a pallet with your family, and put on your favorite holiday movie. I promise you will thank me later!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! ❤

This recipe has been made every holiday in my family since the ’70s! We usually just call it “green stuff” and it is so DELICIOUS!! Unfortunately, I refused to eat this until about 4 years ago because of the way it looked. I thought it was such a strange looking dessert and since I used to be quite of a picky eater, I wouldn’t even try a bite! Trust me this dessert sounds/looks weird but it is definitely worth trying. It is always a huge hit in our household and goes perfectly with the rest of your Thanksgiving dinner! 🙂

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy! 🙂
