Just about everyone loves popcorn—and this holiday gift idea takes popcorn to a whole new flavor level.

Why Try? This is an exciting way to flavor your popcorn. The buttery flavor of the popcorn pairs well with the rich flavor of the Parmesan cheese. What a wonderful gift as well. Include popcorn kernels in a container along with a wedge of Parmesan and a grater in a basket. Use popped popcorn to fill the basket and include a copy of the recipe.

For premium flavor try Parmesan-Reggiano.
