Give the gift of a healthy snack

For a simple — yet heartfelt — DIY gift, consider a jar of popcorn kernels with the spices to make a delicious and healthy snack based on 2 of our tasty popcorn recipes: spicy paprika and cinnamon maple.

Happy holidays from the Food for health team!


  • 1 cup of popcorn kernels (this is enough to make the recipe a few times)

  • Small bottle of hot sauce or maple syrup (optional)



  1. Pour popcorn kernels into a clean and dry glass jar. Put the lid on.
  2. Attach spices and hot sauce or maple syrup with a ribbon, if included.
  3. Decorate and add a recipe gift tag from the link above.
