Top 10 things you must have if you’re going to move to Haiti— #7

Whirley Popper

I don’t mean to brag (actually, yes I do), but making kettle corn is my spiritual gift. I make GREAT kettle corn. It’s the best snack ever. Or can serve as a meal in a pinch. Cause, you know, it’s CORN.

I find that I spend a lot of time here missing food (see yesterday’s post about hating wearing a bathing suit). But kettle corn is the perfect snack for Haiti. It’s salty. It’s sweet. It’s crunchy. It’s cheap. AND THE INGREDIENTS ARE AVAILABLE HERE! It tastes just like it did when I made it back in the States, although it gets stale VERY quickly. (Which it would not if I put it in my Tupperware Modulars—but it never lasts that long.)


  1. So I've never made the stuff myself, but snacked on it so many times at carnivals and fairs. What's the secret?

  2. You do make great kettle corn. I miss you. *sigh*

  3. You shouldn't live ANYWHERE without a Whirley Popper. I love it so much.

    You definitely make the best Kettle Corn. Did you ever try adding a pinch of cinnamon? And when I say pinch I mean at least a teaspoon. Also very delicious. Although, you've got a good thing going' and if it ain't broke don't fix it. I was wondering the other day if you brought that with you, I'm so very glad you did!

    I eat popcorn multiple time a week, I can't eat it enough. I don't make kettle that often, I like to add 'Italian spices' to the oil, SO GOOD! Okay, enough about popcorn already!
