BBQ Popcorn

There have been some weird Trader Joe's seasonings that I've tried, but this is by far, the weirdest. It's not a normal BBQ seasoning. It has coffee, garlic, and paprika in it. My goal with the whole Trader Joe's seasoning series was to try EVERY seasoning out there. I was very reluctant to try this one, but it had to be done. I made the popcorn. As I took the first bite, I had a mix of terror and excitement flooding my mind. I popped the popcorn in my mouth and, it tasted good! It's not my favorite Trader Joe's seasoning, but it's actually good! I was absolutely stunned! Now, let's get started:

What You'll Need:

A way of popping your popcorn (air popper, stovetop, microwave, etc.)

A bowl


1/2 cup unpopped popcorn

1 tbs. butter and 1/4 cup olive oil together in a 1/3 cup

2 tsp. BBQ Rub & Seasoning (you can get it at Trader Joe's or here)

Salt, to taste


Step 1: Pop your popcorn and put it in the bowl.

Step 2: Put the butter and olive oil in the microwave for 18-22 seconds and put the BBQ Rub & Seasoning in the mixture (I highly recommend putting the seasoning in the butter because it brings out the flavor and it spreads the seasoning more evenly on the popcorn. There's also garlic powder in it which you could inhale while eating.). Then drizzle on the popcorn, while stirring it.

Step 3: Season with salt.

Step 4: Enjoy!
