St. Patrick - Good News Popcorn

st patrick popcorn bagsMy parents used to treat my sis and I to flavored popcorn.  There was a small snack shop in the mall that had a variety of flavored popcorn.  My favorite was bubblegum.  It has been a long time since I’ve enjoyed that yummy treat.

I made green lemon-lime flavored popcorn, AKA Good News Popcorn, in honor of St. Patrick.  We celebrated on Sunday despite the fact that it’s a 1st class feast in our diocese.

Patrick suffered much in Ireland and there was always the danger that he would be killed, yet the saint kept on preaching about Jesus.….How happy he was to bring the Good News of the true God to the people who once held him a slave. ~Holy Spirit Interactive

The children loved the Good News Popcorn. 

I plan on sharing the extra popcorn with my nieces.  The day-old popcorn is a bit chewy and reminds me of pink popcorn.  My kids still think it’s yummy.

You can get the complete recipe at Catholic Cuisine.

Prayer About St. Patrick

God our Father,
you sent Saint Patrick to preach your
glory to the people of Ireland.
By the help of his prayers,
may all Christians proclaim your love to all men.
Grant this through our
Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.


St. Patrick ~ ora pro nobis
