Popcorn and bubbly, with a side of nostalgia
When sparkling wine Freixenet recently asked us to help them find a food partner to fit a “movie night” theme, our brain jumped instantly back to childhood and our parents’ romantic Friday night ritual. They would pop some popcorn, pop the cork on a bottle of bubbly, cuddle up on the living room sofa, and watch the Friday night movie.
So when we accepted Freixenet’s challenge, we knew ONLY popcorn would do. Enter the very cool Angie’s Boomchickapop®! Their brand, more adult-oriented than most popcorn, fit the bill perfectly. Keep an eye out in stores this fall for displays of Freixenet (in their recognizable black matte bottle), featuring savings on bags of Boomchickapop. Make sure you try the Lightly Sweet!
This search delivered an unexpected, personal benefit. We at Dovetail are known for considering chardonnay and popcorn an adequate dinner. It wasn’t until this search, though, that it dawned on us where the idea originated: those long-ago Friday nights. Thanks, Mom, (and dear departed Dad) for the legacy of a great pairing, and for showing us how easy it is to make any night a celebration.
