Popped To Perfection
A classic snack from the home of the Star Spangled Banner, popcorn is back in favour and Joe & Seph’s gourmet popcorn promises an explosion of flavour with everything from truffle, cheddar cheese and ginger caramel to alcoholic concoctions like Cosmopolitans and Margaritas on the menu at Harrods.
Here, Joe & Seph’s founder, Joseph Sopher, reveals five facts about his namesake popcorn brand.
"The idea behind Joe & Seph’s was a happy accident. I was making a batch of popcorn and forgot to put an ingredient in. Instead of starting again, I just threw it in at the end and discovered that I could actually control the sequence in which flavours are released."
"We are a family-run business – my son, Adam, is the company director and all of our popcorn is proudly popped in the UK."
"Our alcoholic popcorn is a world first! We make our cocktail-flavoured Gin and Tonic, Mojito, Margarita and Cosmopolitan popcorns with 5% real alcohol."
"Cheese on Toast is our most popular flavour, but Toasted Cheddar and Strawberry Jam was probably a step too far…"
"Ideas come to me in the middle of the night: I’ll go straight to the kitchen to test new flavours, even if it’s four in the morning!"
