Flavored popcorn ideas?

I'm doing a cocktail party in a few weeks and have a mind to do some flavored popcorn rolled up in pretty paper cones.

Does anyone have some interesting flavor combinations to sprinkle on the popcorn? Probably looking for savory rather than sweet.

  1. butter and Slap ya Mamma seasoning
    butter and dukkah
    butter, oregano and sea salt
    butter, salt and vinegar.

    1. So glad you asked! I swear by a bit of salt,curry powder and a small squirt of Sriacha - shake it all up and prepare yourself for popcorn heaven!

      1. freshly grated Parmesan cheese and smoked paprika (with butter and a salt)

          Oooh. I already have a mix of sea salt and smoked paprika from Penzeys. These are all making my mouth water.

        2. Infuse a little olive oil with rosemary, toss the popcorn in and salt. Its incredible addictive!

          1. My husband uses xx-hot curry (oh the beautiful pain...probably not good for company though), and also likes a mixture of salt, pepper, chipotle and pasilla powders (very smokey and wonderful). He makes his popcorn using an saucepan with olive oil and just tosses the seasonings in while he's waiting for the popcorn to pop.

            I like olive oil with salt and pepper.

            For a sweet-salty combo, I've been know to do salted butter with dark chocolate drizzle.
