Deck the Halls with Amazing Flavor!
This is the time of year when families and friends gather to share stories,
gifts, and, most importantly, food! Make your guests happy this year with a
variety of foods everyone can enjoy with very little work on your end. Who

is the perfect opportunity to enjoy popcorn. Consider spicing up your
"normal" popcorn recipe with something a little more festive like a
holiday-inspired shake-on popcorn seasoning. Think about shaking a little
cinnamon and powdered clove on top of your popcorn bowl to infuse it with
the holiday spirit! You could even consider adding a few drops of green or
red food coloring in your kettle for a snazzy holiday popcorn look!
You would not normally think of hot dogs at Christmas time. But, our
intrepid team of gastronomic researchers has come up with an amazing chili

or on a roller grill, and top them with your standard chili recipe which has
also been infused with cocoa powder and cinnamon! It is incredibly good,
and a belly full of this stick-to-your-ribs recipe will keep you warm when
constructing the all-important snowman family in your front yard.
So, fill your belly full of holiday cheer and let your foodie holiday spirit
