I love popcorn! If you’re like me, you don’t simply save it for cinema trips, but you snack on it at home too. Now, what’s better than the cinema standard sweet or salted version, than popcorn from Nigeria’s first gourmet brand, Proper Popcorn? It is authentic, handmade in small batches and seasoned with an array of fine ingredients so you can have a guilt free snacking experience, yes please!
The founder, Shiyan Cole tells us that inspiration for her brand started back when she was a child and she used to make it on the stove for her family and friends. Fast forward to adulthood, she realised she still had the passion to make popcorn and so after encouragement, Proper Popcorn was born! A great example of people making viable businesses from things that they’re passionate about.
Proper Popcorn uses ingredients of the highest quality, including the popping corn which is a special hybrid of gourmet corn sourced directly by the brand- they do not cut corners! Having a strong belief in “No Artificial Anything!” the brand ethos is to simply provide a healthy snacking alternative for the Nigerian consumer market.
Recently revamping their packaging and expanding into stockists, Proper Popcorn believe popcorn should be a joy to eat. So much so, that despite getting many bulk orders for parties and events AND satisfying the needs of their stockists, they stick to their roots and handcraft each batch in a real kitchen with ingredients that can be found in your kitchen cupboard. Little Shiyan’s dream come true!!
