Dill Pickle Popcorn is an easy snack sure to please any pickle lover. No fake flavors or colors here. This popcorn is the real dill. Seasoned with dill weed and other spices, plus a secret ingredient that really makes this popcorn shine.
Dill pickles, you either love them to the point of mild obsession or you hate them. Am I right? I fall on the love side of the pickle spectrum. But I think there’s something weird that happens when you dive into dill pickle flavored foods. More often than not you’ll end up with a weird electric green food so sour your mouth puckers. This dill pickle popcorn isn’t like that.
My take on Dill Pickle Popcorn tastes fresher and lighter with a seasoning blend of herbs and spices that’s topped off with a secret ingredient that really ties it all together, a drizzle of pickle juice instead of butter!
Pickley popcorn makes a fun snack that can be ready in about 5 minutes! We’ll start with a batch of Dutch Oven Popcorn. Don’t worry, if you don’t know how to make popcorn on the stovetop I’ve got an easy tutorial right here as well as some more tasty popcorn variations like Salted Caramel Pecan Popcorn.
Can I use microwave popcorn to make this?
Yes, this recipe can be made with microwave popcorn. However, I do want to highlight that depending on the brand and variety of microwave popcorn you use it can really change the flavor of the finished product. Specifically how salty your popcorn is!
To make dill pickle popcorn you’ll need:
Fresh popped popcorn
Dill Pickle Juice

- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon coriander

This popcorn is best eaten the day it is made. Be sure the popcorn has dried completely before storing in a ziploc bag.
