When considering the best snack foods of all time, we’d be remiss not to mention popcorn. This delightful, airy treat can be either decadent or healthy, depending on how you decide to prepare it.

Popcorn has become synonymous with movie-time munchies and tastes great topped with cinnamon, cayenne pepper, or just plain butter! If you’re serious about your popcorn, it might be time to invest in a very cool and very retro vintage-inspired popcorn maker for your kitchen.

Walmart carries a variety of these throwback makers, and not only does the popcorn taste better when you scoop it from this old-timey contraption (and that’s a fact), but the aesthetics of having one of these bad Larrys in your kitchen will put you at the forefront of 2019 kitchen trends.
