Local and organic popcorn? With special collections for the holidays? Yes, it is all possible!

For day #2 of the 12 Days of Local Christmas (2 Turtle Doves, if you are wanting to keep up with the song), I present 479° Popcorn, a San Francisco company with savory and sweet organic flavored popcorn.

479° Popcorn was started in 2008 with an eye towards creating small batch, made-to-order popcorn in a business that values small farmers, artisan craftsmanship, fair trade practices, sustainable agriculture and organic farming. Most of the ingredients come from family farms in California, and the individual ingredients all have an interesting back-story.

For the holidays, 479° Popcorn offers several packages to chose from – the Foodie Sampler, with boxes of Fleur de Sel Caramel, Ginger Sesame Caramel, Black Truffle + White Cheddar, Madras Curry Coconut + Cashews, Alderwood Smoked Sea Salt. Or how about the International Collection, with Ginger Sesame Caramel, Chipotle Caramel + Almonds, Black Truffle + White Cheddar. And if you have a do-it-herselfer on your holiday gift list, consider one of the Pop It Yourself Kits in Sweet + Savory or Black Truffle. If you would like to order individual boxes, just give them a call – 1-888-479- yumm (9866).

Another great thing about this company is their commitment to green – buying local, composting, removing hazardous chemicals from the workplace and replacing all the office light bulbs with energy efficient bulbs!

Whether you are satisfying a sweet tooth, or need a cheesy snack at the end of the day, 479° Popcorn has what you need!
