Mother Goose popcorn is a fun, kid-oriented spring or Easter treat.
I remember when I was a youngster, my mom would make this popcorn. She'd pop the popcorn into a large paper grocery bag and one of the kids would shake the bag while she poured the sugary syrup in. This helped to evenly coat the popcorn and gave us the opportunity to help make it.
And it doesn't even have to be a spring or Easter treat. You can color it in any combination for whatever holiday or celebration you're having.
It's fun, easy, and totally addicting.
