Gourmet popcorn shop hits Amsterdam high street



I’ve recently noticed an increase in popcorn flavours besides salty and sweet at my local supermarket, such as fancy popcorn with cheese and chives and what not from the UK as well as Dutch attempts at making popcorn that reminds me of American Cracker Jack.

This time Italians are bringing the popcorn to downtown Amsterdam, with the opening of FOL Gourmet Popcorn, the first ever popcorn shop of the country. Flavours will include bacon, chili pepper and white chocolate with pretzel. You can also sit down and have a beverage with your popcorn.

I love popcorn and every time I reach for some I say ‘popcorn!’ and picture of James Brown getting down.

    Here in the US, they sell big tins of popcorn with butter, cheese and caramel flavors (separated of course). My dad gets one every Christmas, and we all eat it when we are at his house.

    Otherwise, my dad was big on popping his own popcorn. We would usually have the typical yellow, but there are black and white as well (the outside of the kernels themselves are black and white, not the inside.)

    I have never been to a popcorn store here, but I'm sure we have them.
