When it comes to healthy cities, Seattle tops the list (It’s true; the Google said so!). We’re super green and we eat lean. Hey, even our kids love kale chips as a snack. But sometimes, you just need to indulge your taste buds. So, go bike the Burke or SUP the morning away on Alki, then take the fam (and your appetite) for a tour of some delightfully delish food fads that are truly drool-worthy. But maybe not so skinny jean friendly. Nosh on!

Gourmet Popcorn

Have you heard? Popcorn’s not just for the movies anymore. It’s found its mouthwateringly gourmet niche at KuKuRuZa Gourment Popcorn, where they’ve dressed up this old school favorite in new and tantalizing ways. The best part? They air-pop most of their corn and use non-GMO kernels, so you can munch guilt-free. The kiddos will make a mad dash for the rainbow fruit popcorn. And we recommend the Seattle Style caramel corn for a little parent afternoon pick-me-up. It’s laced with, you guessed it, espresso to help you keep up with the petit posse. Pop on!

Find it: Grab a bag, box or tin at any one of the three KuKuRuZa locations.

Have you and the kiddos tried any of these delish fads? Tell us about your experience in a comment below.
