Deliver Ingredients


  • ¼ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1 teaspoon ground thyme
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 8 cups plain air-popped popcorn, kept hot

Parmesan Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Parmesan Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
