13 Popcorn Toppings That Sound Weird But Are Apparently Delicious, According To Twitter

Don't knock it till you pop it!

I used to be a traditionalist when it came to popcorn. A salt and butter kinda guy. Lately, though, I've been branching out and trying more white cheddar or caramel corn varieties, and I took to Twitter to see what else is out there...

...and there is a LOT. I can't say I stand by all of them. But check out the list below and you might end up finding a new favorite movie snack?

1. Tapatío Hot Sauce

fyi best way to eat popcorn: nutritional yeast and tapatio 🔥😇

Save your bacon fat.
Pop fresh popcorn.
Sprinkle kosher salt.
Drizzle bacon fat over popcorn.
Thank me later.
