Every once in a while we call it a popcorn-for-dinner night and I highly recommend you give it go! This beats the movie theater variety any day! Gratefully, it couldn’t be easier to get your popcorn fix with an air fryer in tow. Popping corn in an air fryer is EASY. Bonus: it comes out significantly more fluffy and flavorful than the stovetop variety and it’s way tastier than microwave popcorn. I can’t wait for you to give it a go!
