Inspired by memories of her mom’s popcorn, which was always prepared in a hand-cranked stovetop popper, Jean started making her own organic popcorn and experimenting with all sorts of delectable seasonings. When she learned that 479 degrees is the perfect temperature for popping corn, Jean knew right away that she wanted to incorporate that tidbit into the name of her popcorn company, since it’s symbolic of her unwavering attention to detail. You can see that thoughtfulness in Jean’s Pop It Yourself popcorn kits, which include oil, popcorn, different salts and sugars for seasoning, recipe cards, and fun paper cones for serving. The irresistible packaging is as delicious as the contents.
The Pop It Yourself Kit is a hands-on way to enjoy Jean’s sophisticated flavors in your own kitchen. For more instant gratification, you can try 479 Popcorn’s canisters of freshly-popped organic popcorn in a range of sweet and savory flavors. All of Jean’s products are made with organic corn purchased from small farms in the San Francisco Bay area. It pops up fluffy, scrumptious, and perfect for sharing.
