Wine-Flavored Popcorn Is a Thing

‘Pinot Popcorn’ is a combined effort of winemaker and Populence gourmet popcorn.

Popcorn not good enough for you anymore? Spice it up with some booze. New York gourmet popcorn maker Populence announced this week that it is teaming up with New Zealand winemaker Kim Craford to create wine-soaked popcorn. Two flavors are ready for your eating pleasure: Pinot Noir Drizzle and Sauvignon Blanc Kettle. Populence's website said customers should pair the popcorns with certain wines. Bad news? You can't get drunk off of the popcorn alone. But just more of a reason to pop bottles.
