Sometimes the food gods shine down upon us, bringing flavors together to create epic hybrid creations, case in point, the Cronut and Mochi Donut. This time wine and your favorite movie snack have joined forces (cue in celebratory orchestra music) to bring you the perfect drunchie munchie to sneak into your next movie outing.
NYC-based Populence and New Zealand wine maker Kim Crawford have brought forth a boozy snack in two flavors: Pinot Noir Drizzle and Sauvignon Blanc Kettle. This wine-infused popcorn is meant to be paired with the wine it’s made with, which is probably a hint that you can’t get drunk off the popcorn alone. Psh, we’ll see about that.
However, for those of you who can figure out a way to sneak your favorite Pinot or Sauvignon Blanc into the movie theater: Respect. For the rest of you, you’ll just have to enjoy this unique pairing from the comfort of your living room.
