Meet Amaretto Almond, our April 2014 flavor of the month. This delectable flavor comes at just the right time as sunny days begin to poke their heads through the rainy ones and we start to make that final transition into Seattle spring weather.
Our chefs infuse our Classic Caramel recipe with both amaretto and almond extract, before mixing in whole almonds and popcorn, to create the perfect balance of amaretto and almond.

After the almonds have been thoroughly stirred in with the infused caramel popcorn, we transport the batch to a large cooling table where it is constantly moving during the cooling process.
Time for the almonds and thorough stirring & mixing!
This constant moving prevents the popcorn from becoming one giant Amaretto Almond popcorn ball as it is brought down to room temperature (but how terrible would that be really?).

Be sure to grab a bag of this flavor before it's gone! It will only be available until the last day of April. Once you've snatched this month's flavor, go soak up some sun, and let us know how it is! We'd love to see how you're enjoying Amaretto Almond and the springtime weather, so share a picture of your popcorn on our Twitter page (@KuKuRuZa or #KuKuRuZa) for a chance to be featured on our social media!
