Pepsi and Popcorn Superbowl Shoppertunity #CBias #PepsivsCoke

I was given an awesome shoppertunity to grab Pepsi and Orville Redenbacher popcorn to create a recipe using the popcorn as either a snack or a craft. I like to make crafts a lot, one of my best friends always jokes that I am Martha Stewart, which I take as a compliment. This time I decided to be creative in making a snack using not one of Orville Redenbacher popcorn's but two. So I started out on my shoppertunity with a great snack recipe in mind.
My shopping trip was with my mom, she is my number one best friend and we pretty much do everything together. I shared my snack recipe with her and she was excited to shop for the ingredients but even more excited to try it! You can read all about my Pepsi and Popcorn Shoppertunity on my Google+ photo story.
Here is my recipe:

1 Bag of Classic Recipe Orville Redenbacher popcorn
1 Bag of Caramel Orville Redenbacher popcorn
½ Can of Toffee Covered Peanuts
½ Bag of Pretzels (stick or whatever kind you prefer)
1 Medium to Large Bag of Plain M&M's (you can use Peanut M&M's also)

You need to make the Caramel popcorn exactly as the directions state on the box, if the bowl is too warm it will melt the M&M's. Once the Caramel popcorn has cooled add the Classic Recipe and mix together, again make sure the Caramel popcorn has cooled so that you have two separate popcorn's not all Caramel popcorn. Then add the pretzels, toffee covered peanuts and the plain M&M's. Make sure to mix together but not too much otherwise all the toffee covered peanuts and M&M's will fall to the bottom.

I forgot to take photo's of the step by step process of making this recipe but it is such a simple recipe there wasn't much to see. I did snap a photo of the finished product.
We really enjoyed eating my snack recipe and drinking our Pepsi products. I grew up as a Pepsi brat, my Mom's drank Pepsi everyday and you wouldn't dare drink her last bit of Pepsi. And my Aunt Susi can tell you of a story of when I was just a toddler and would rat her out for giving me Pepsi. I just really love an ice cold Pepsi nothing comes close to taking those first few drinks and having that crisp taste and the burn of the carbonation going down your throat. Coke doesn't even come close to having that same great taste! During the #PepsivsCoke Twitter Party I made it very clear that I was and always will be #TeamPepsi! Thanks Collective Bias for this shoppertunity, I enjoyed it immensely!
