479° Popcorn began with a fond childhood memory of cozy evenings spentplaying cards and devouring fresh popcorn with founder Jean Arnold's family. Her momrefused to serve anything other than organic popcorn cooked in a sturdystovetop popper that she'd hand crank until the kernels turned into adelightful fluffy treat. Then, as now, a bowl of popcorn could turn anordinary moment into a special occasion.

Over the years, Jean experimented with making her own organicpopcorn and flavoring it with exotic seasonings inspired by herinternational upbringing and training at Le Cordon Bleu in London. Inthe process, I came upon the discovery that 479 degrees Fahrenheit isthe optimal temperature for popping corn. She knew immediately that thiswould be the name of her popcorn company, because it reflects thecareful attention to detail that she work so hard to incorporate intoevery single element of the business, from the pristine ingredients tothe beautiful packaging to the avid dedication to customersatisfaction.

These days, she makes popcorn by hand in the San Franciscokitchen she started with her husband. Jean creates mouth watering flavors like Madras Curry Coconut and Cashew, Black Truffle and White Cheddar, and Pimenton de La Vera, which is smoky Spanish paprika with bursts of ripe organic tomato + onion!
