Valentine's Day Date Ideas for Popcorn Lovers

Valentine’s Day. Two words that fill you with joy, or dread? For you, movie lovers and popcorn lovers, we have four Valentine’s Day date ideas that will show your significant other that you’ve made an admirable effort. We’ve done the hard work for you, so you can sit back, relax with your freshly popped movie theatre popcorn, and read our Valentine’s Day date night ideas. For movie lovers, this will be the best Valentine’s Day ever!

  1. First up, the classic Valentine’s Day date idea: Going to the movies. Before you roll your eyes and think what a cliché, it’s a classic date for a reason. Being entertained with the latest blockbuster while eating your favorite movie theatre popcorn (made in a Cretors popcorn machine of course) as well as cuddling with your special someone, we can’t think of anything better! Why not see if there are any local drive-in movie theatre showings on Valentine’s Day to make it extra special?
  2. Get creative at home with Valentine’s Day-inspired popcorn flavors. Think lots of pink, red, and white candy as well as white and dark chocolate sauce. It’s delicious and easy to make! Get a big bowl of popcorn, melt pink chocolate candy melts and mix into the popped popcorn and toss to coat. We like to spread the coated popcorn onto a tray or cookie sheet to dry. Melt white chocolate candy melts and drizzle on top of the pink-coated popcorn. Decorate with candy sprinkles, cinnamon-flavored candies, or anything else your heart desires! Then get ready to snuggle with your loved one under a blanket while watching the cheesiest romcom you can find or, you know, the latest horror, whichever floats your boat.
  3. Create a treasure hunt that leads to your Valentine’s Day gift! We’ll leave it up to you how extravagant you want to be. Create a map or leave a trail of popcorn that your beloved needs to navigate to find the treasure! P.S. popcorn machines make great unexpected gifts for popcorn lovers or movie lovers if you’re struggling to think of an original and fun idea.
  4. Go all out and recreate the golden age of Hollywood at home! Dress up in glitzy outfits and get out the fancy cocktail glasses to set the mood. With a Cretors Goldrush popcorn machine, you will have the most delicious popcorn on hand as a tasty snack. As the pièce de résistance, hire a projector for the full silver screen effect, to watch a classic movie on. This is a gift that will far outlive just one night. You’ll have the memory of a fantastic evening and you’ll be able to have delicious, fresh popcorn of any flavor you want every night of the week!

Valentines’ Day Craft to do with the kids! Why wait for Christmas to string popcorn? The best popcorn to use is unbuttered or salted popcorn that has had a day or two to sit and dry. One cup will equal about 3 to 4 feet of thread. Put kernels into a paper bag, fold to close, and microwave for about 2 and half minutes. Fishing line or colored embroidery thread and a needle are all you need! String the popcorn onto the thread, and add small pink, red, and white beads, pom-poms, or felt balls for festive color!
