Have you ever made or bought Popcorn balls?

My grandmother used to make these as a treat for trick or treaters on Halloween. However, that was then and now everything must be wrapped for protection and safety. It actually was fun because we would make well over 100 of these popcorn balls and people would just eat them up. Some came to the door for more than one.

  • My mom has made them before for my dads company parties and stuff. I personally am not a fan of them, they are hard to eat. And I think my children would agree too. Were you asking for like a recipie though? Ive never seen them sold in the stores.

  • My mom made them most every year, but we did not pass them out, only ate them ourselves or with friends. They are yummy, but man do they burn your hands when forming the balls lol. I would not trust any home made item now days, so if we do make them we keep them and pass out name brand store bought candy.

  • My mom used to make them when I was little, and we all got to help : ). Although you could not make them for handing out to trick or treaters now, you and your kids could make some together! Maybe revive an old family tradition with your kids!

  • Never bought them, never made them. Never was fond of them though when I got them from other people or when my mom made them.
