From Kathleen Purvis’ blog I’ll Bite: obsbite.blogspot.com:
The trouble with March Madness is that there is so much madness and only so much March. It’s not like the Super Bowl, where you can put out a whole table of football-watching snacks and be done with it.
No, the month is crammed with multiple basketball-watching parties, which calls for things that are simple, tasty and fast. After I tried this dressed-up popcorn, it occurred to me that it would be perfect for watching basketball. It’s easier to make than caramel corn, but it’s still sweet and salty, with just enough curry to be interesting, and it’s compulsively eatable.
Even better: If a game result makes somebody mad enough to throw something, you can’t do much damage by throwing popcorn.
