“There are 228 recipes w/popcorn in their title! I know, I just went through each of them and found nothing like this unique popcorn recipe I found while recipe browsing. From The Popcorn Institute, its original title was "Beach Party Popcorn", but I renamed it after I amended the recipe & prep to be more salt content friendly if that is an issue for you. This is a great snack for all "To Go" occasions, but mostly just to enjoy w/your family & friends. (Times do not include popping the popcorn or cooling the finished mixture.) SPECIAL NOTE: The recipe editing mechanism wouldn't accept 2 CUPS ASSORTED SNACK ITEMS as an ingredient, but this is a part of the recipe!”
10 1 cup servings

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 13 cup butter (melted)
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 drop Tabasco sauce (or more to taste)
  • 2 quarts popped popcorn
  • 12 ounce Lipton Onion Soup Mix


  1. Add soy sauce and Tabasco to 1/3 cup melted butter.
  2. Put popped popcorn & assorted snacks of choice in a large bowl. Pour butter/soy mixture over the popcorn/snacks combo & toss. (NOTE: When selecting your assorted snack items, I suggest you avoid anything already salted or seasoned like salted pretzels, nuts, shoestring potatoes, etc.).
  3. Sprinkle w/dry onion soup mix seasoning & toss again. (NOTE: Some salt content has already been included in the butter & soy sauce. Since salt is a matter of personal preference, I suggest using a small strainer to collect the dry onion components of the soup mix, set them aside to later recombine w/the remaining soup mix & gradually sprinkle the seasoning part of the soup mix to the popcorn/snack mix per your personal taste.).
  4. Spread mixture in a jelly roll pan (15 1/2 × 10 1/2 × 1-in) & bake in a 350°F oven for 8-10 min, stirring once.
  5. Serve when fully cooled & store remains in a relatively airtight container with a snap-on lid, but you're not likely to need it!
