What Are The Best Options to Dip Soft Pretzels In?

Soft PretzelsNot too many people like to eat plain, unsalted pretzels. One of the nice things about soft pretzels is that you can dip them in different foods and tantalize your tastebuds.

Soft pretzels can be dipped in honey mustard, cream cheese, nacho cheese, ranch dressing, and/or marinara sauce. If you’re feeling adventurous, try dipping them in salad dressing, artichoke/spinach dip, or even peanut butter and chocolate sauce.

Have you ever dipped a soft pretzel into whipped cream? Try it! How about honey? Go for it. There’s always the tried-and-true butter/margarine to dip your soft pretzel into, which tastes oh-so-good, and if you’d like to mix things up a bit, dip it into salsa or chili!

Now some of the more unusual things people dip their soft pretzels into include lemonade and ice cream– not sure how that tastes, but it might be good. Pretzels are the rare kind of food that seemingly go well with “everything.” Simply made from flour and water, pretzels are easy to make, heat up, and serve. It’s no wonder they’re one of America’s most popular snack foods.

One thing’s for sure: soft pretzels and dips are a staple of events where people enjoy themselves. Almost everybody likes pretzels.

How to Make Your Child’s Birthday Party Special

Child's Birthday PartyWhen you think about it, you’re only a “kid” for about twelve or so birthdays of your entire life. Since you’re just starting out in life, it’s important to really enjoy those birthdays because they help set the tone for the rest of your life. Think back to a particular birthday you celebrated as a kid that was amazingly awesome in every way– what made the party extra special?

Kids generally love balloons, animals, costumed characters, and sugary foods and drinks. These things can enliven a child’s birthday party, for sure. Kids also love feeling recognized by everyone else as the special person of their day, so little things like giving them a birthday shirt, button or crown with their name on it to wear for their party can mean a lot to them. Even something like a “chair of honor” for them to sit in on their birthday makes them feel special.

A particularly fun thing to do at your kid’s birthday party is to have guests hide their presents and then have the birthday kid look for them. This can help make the party quite fun, especially when the guests give clues to the presents’ whereabouts.

Now a kid’s birthday party is best when it includes some things they don’t normally get to experience in their daily lives. With that in mind, Miracle Strip Popcorn helps make parties “the best” by offering cotton candy machines, shaved ice/sno-cone machines (especially good for warm Florida days), and other concession products like candy apples, nachos, caramel corn and funnel cakes.

Miracle Strip Popcorn of Fort Walton Beach, Florida, is just a phone call away at 850-864-1139 or you can email sales@mspopcorn.com to ask about the various fun food supplies available to help make your child’s birthday party extra special this year. From equipment to cleaning supplies, Miracle Strip Popcorn can deliver all your party snack bar needs.

Does Food Taste Better on a Stick?

Food On a Stick Think back to a time when you were younger. What do you remember about those days? Perhaps you can visualize your time at an amusement park, county fair, or party where you enjoyed eating cotton candy off a stick? Those were happy times, weren’t they?

There’s something fun about eating food off a stick. It’s a novelty for most people because they don’t do it everyday. You can eat cotton candy, hot dogs/corn dogs, and apples off of sticks while you’re walking around a fun place. The sticks make the food portable, and when you’re at a “fun fair” of any kind, you generally are walking around more than sitting around, right?

Consider caramel and candy apples. These taste great, but they’re pretty messy if they’re not attached to a stick. Whomever came up with the idea to put apples on sticks and then cover them with sugary goodness was a genius.

In many ways, eating food on a stick reminds people of their childhood. Most kids have gone places where their parents or caregivers bought them food or snacks on a stick. Suckers/lollipops come on a stick. Lots of candies utilize the stick. The stick is good.

It has been said that food tastes better on a stick. While that’s debatable, we have to consider that food on a stick is usually associated with pleasurable events when family and friends are having fun, typically outdoors in nice weather. So maybe there is some credence to the idea.

Miracle Strip Popcorn is in the business of delighting people with fun food and drink options. As concession suppliers, Miracle Strip Popcorn supplies people with the needed items to make and distribute food on sticks and other party-friendly items. From cotton candy to caramel apples and then some, Miracle Strip Popcorn’s website is full of fun snacks and more to choose from.

Which Movie Snacks Shine the Brightest?

Movie SnacksA great movie is driven by its stars. Actors and actresses like Tom Cruise, Jennifer Lawrence, and Chris Pratt take blockbuster films to the next level while putting butts in the seats. But anyone who loves going to the theater can tell you the real lead in any viewing experience.

The movie snacks.

Everyone has his or her favorite candy, and movie time is perfect for indulging. Chocolate peanuts, sour gummies, and fruity chews are all popular choices at the concession stand. Here at Miracle Strip Popcorn, we like to kick things up a notch with carnival style cotton candy made with one of our professional-grade machines. Nothing can keep you from your candy during the excitement of a movie.

While some like to satisfy their sweet tooth, others lean towards options a little more savory. The best movie snacks also tend to show up at other spectator events, like the ballpark. Hot dogs and nachos, both commonly available at movie theaters, are undeniably delicious options.

By now you’re probably wondering when we were going to mention the biggest star of all. There is perhaps nothing else that goes hand-in-hand so well with a movie as popcorn-salty, buttery popcorn that keeps you munching from the very first scene to the closing credits. Movie theater popcorn makes every other snack an afterthought. Even if you plan on trying something else, the overwhelming aroma that greets you when walking through the door is all it takes to bring you back.

No matter which movie snack you choose, everyone knows you’ll need a tasty beverage to wash it all down. A classic, often overlooked choice is fresh squeezed lemonade, a treat still offered by some of the old-fashioned movie houses. Frozen drinks have become a more popular choice these days. The go by a number of names, but we’re pretty sure our sno-cones and shaved ice can do the trick.

Hungry yet? The best part about these popular movie theater snacks is that you can easily provide them at your next event. At Miracle Strip Popcorn, we sell the equipment you need to make popcorn, cotton candy, hot dogs, nachos, and a variety of beverages. Once you realize the leading role that movie snacks play, you have the power to take your next big showing to the next level.

What Are the Best Snack Options for a Child’s Party?

We know that you want to make your child’s birthday party as special as possible, which is why we’re here to give you a few ideas. If you’ve been struggling to come up with a plan for the party, you may want to consider a few rental options. Party rentals are a great way to bring something fun and excited to the party without having to spend a lot of money.

So, what exactly could you rent for the party? Let’s start with snacks. Rather than simply order a pizza or bake some cookies, you could add some more excitement to the party by renting a traditional popcorn cart or cotton candy machine. These things will make the kids feel like they’re at a truly special event, and it will give the party a fun festival-like atmosphere.

In addition to renting machines to make snow cones, popcorn, or cotton candy, there are a few other options. If you have the space, you could rent an inflatable bounce house for the kids to play in. Inflatable bounce houses and slides are always a big hit with kids, and they offer the extra benefit of giving everyone a place to burn off some energy. You’re going to need it if they’ve been eating sugary treats all day!

Other rental options include hiring an entertainer like a clown or a magician. Renting some or all of these things will make your child’s special day stand out from the average birthday party, but it’s important to do what they want. Talk to your child about some of these rental options and see what interests them the most!

Which Concession Rentals are Ideal for a Child’s Birthday Party?

Concession rentals are a fun addition to any child’s birthday party. Depending on the age of the child and the party theme, there are different options to make your party memorable.

Popcorn Machine

Popcorn is a snack that works for any party. This rental is great for both indoor and outdoor parties and is one that all children will enjoy. Different flavors and toppings can be added depending on the children’s preferences, allowing for an easy yet customizable treat.

Sno Cone or Shave Ice Machine

Sno cones and shaved ice are best for outdoor parties in the summer months. They are a great way to keep cool in the heat, but can become a bit messy with younger children. These machines are a tasty addition to “Frozen” themed birthday parties as well.

Cotton Candy Machine

Carnival or circus themed parties can always use the addition of a cotton candy machine. This sugary treat can also be messy, so wet clothes or wipes are best to have on hand for parties including younger children.

Hot Dog Steamer

Hot dogs are a crowd pleaser regardless of the age of children or party theme. They can be served as a lunch or dinner, making for an easy meal. With condiments, each child can customize their meal to their liking; no worries about picky eaters.

Interested in adding a concession rental to your child’s birthday? Call Miracle Strip Popcorn at 850-864-1139 or email sales@mspopcorn.com for pricing and more information.

Kick Off Your Super Bowl Party With A Concession Rental

These days, watching football at home is almost as good as actually being at the game. Huge, flat-screen televisions and surround sound systems can make you feel like you’re actually in the crowd.

Best of all, you’ll be able to enjoy the comfort of a sofa, a private bathroom, and a fridge full of your favorite beverages.

Still, there’s something missing, isn’t there? Take a big whiff. Can you smell the sweet and savory aromas of fresh popcorn, cotton candy, and tasty nachos? Turns out, there’s something about that stadium atmosphere that you can’t replace.
