Where To Buy Puffed Corn

Puffed corn can easily be found at a health food store like Whole Foods and Sprouts. If you don’t have these stores near you, never worry. You can easily purchase puffed corn on Amazon, however, it is more expensive to buy online.

If you are unable to find this product, you can also make this same recipe with Cherrios! Get creative using this easy technique and make this healthy snack recipe your own.

Many moms get hung up with buying convenient snack foods for their kids, and they grocery budgets suffer. That is why I am on a mission to prove that you can make healthy snacks at home, like this kettle corn twist.
