Hi friends! Hope you are having a great week and finally starting to get some warm Spring weather. You know what Spring also means? A new season of TV shows! I am currently hooked on Southern Charm, The Challenge Rivals III, and Rich Kids of Beverly Hills and anxiously waiting for The Real Housewives of Orange County and The Bachelorette to start soon. Typically my husband and I DVR all our shows and watch them on Friday or Saturday nights paired with dinner or snacks at home and a few glasses of wine. So when my friends at SkinnyPop came up with a Wine and Popcorn pairing infographic, I knew I had to share it with you. Two of my FAVORITE things that I often pair together =)
SkinnyPop is already one of my go to snacks whether I’m drinking wine or not. Popcorn always reminds me of my childhood because my family and I always ate so much of it either as a snack or during movie nights. Since then it’s always been stocked in my pantry. And I just love how easy it is to open a bag of SkinnyPop rather than make kettle corn on the stove or pop kernels in the microwave. Plus SkinnyPop is made with no artificial ingredients, flavors, or preservatives. And at just 39+ calories a cup you can eat so much more than any other snack. Best of all it is absolutely delicious!
I like how the chart pairs together the different SkinnyPop flavors with reds and/or whites. Since I was only able to find the Original and White Cheddar Skinny Pop flavors I purchased a bottle of Malbec and Chardonnay to pair them with. My husband and I were both surprised by how much we liked the White Cheddar, since I usually only buy Original. The White Cheddar with the Malbec was our favorite combination, because you can’t beat a cheesy snack with a glass of red! But we both really liked the Chardonnay with the Original as well. It was a fun night sipping, talking, TV watching, and taste testing.
Whether you are getting together with your friends for the season premier of The Bachelorette or having a date night, what a perfect time to pair SkinnyPop with a glass of your favorite wine!
