Who doesn’t love popcorn? This globally enjoyed snack has been around for centuries and was once used in ancient Aztec ceremonies. Popcorn has continued to evolve from ancient times to the classic, salt & butter, to today's gourmet flavors like Sea Salt Caramel.
The best way to truly enjoy the flavor evolution of popcorn is to join a popcorn of the month club. Now you might be thinking that a popcorn of the month club sounds a bit silly, but it’s one of the most fabulous ideas out there. Think about it, a variety of fun flavored popcorn delivered conveniently to your door, what can be better than that?
One of the reasons popcorn of the month clubs is so well-liked, besides getting a delicious treat, is the multitude of fabulous flavors you get to experience. Honestly, it blows the mind that so many varieties exist, and popcorn of the month club is the optimal way to try them all.
Are you wondering how it works? Well, there is a wide variety of clubs to choose from with a multitude of plans, from three months to a full year membership. Some of the clubs allow you to customize your orders where other clubs surprise you with their popcorn of the month flavor. A few subscriptions offer one flavor a month, whereas others send two or more flavors.
With so many membership options available, you're guaranteed to find the perfect club. Popcorn of the month club memberships are excellent gifts to send to friends, family, or coworkers.
Which club should you start with? My favorite is Amazing Clubs Popcorn of the Month Club. As with all their clubs, they focus on quality and variety, meaning they spend time sourcing craft, artisanal, and hand made products from around the USA, then rigorously taste-test them to find the best before shipping the popcorn to your home.
