Coat your next batch of popcorn with a spicy buffalo butter!  Thanks to  Pepcid for helping relieve buffalo sauce induced heartburn and for sponsoring this post!


Summer is obviously hot in Las Vegas.  I often tell family and friends that our summer is like an East coast winter.   We tend to spend a lot of time indoors avoiding the heat.  My family uses the summer to catch up on movies and TV shows we missed during the school year.  That means that we eat a lot of popcorn in the summer.  I love my popcorn with just butter and salt, but that gets a little boring so I like to spice things up every once in a while and buffalo popcorn is my newest favorite popcorn flavor.


I actually saw buffalo popcorn for sale at a fancy popcorn shop, but it was made with cheese popcorn, which I'm not a huge fan of, and it was expensive.  So I made it myself.  This is basically popcorn coated in a homemade buffalo sauce.  I'm slightly obsessed with buffalo sauce (see buffalo shrimp salad, buffalo chicken flautas, and slow cooker buffalo chicken sandwiches for example!), but it does tend to give me a little bit of heart burn at times.


I'm not one to avoid spicy foods just to avoid heart burn.  I love jalapenos just as much as I love buffalo sauce and for years I really had issues with heartburn.  It was an almost constant companion and it was not fun.  It can especially brutal when you eat a food that you know causes you heart burn and you know you'll pay for it later. But you can avoid all that with Pepcid Complete.  Pepcid Complete can be taken at the first sign of heartburn.  Pepcid's dual action acid reducer and antacid can take care of the burn.  Pepcid Complete also lasts all day and night – in case you are planning a trip to an amusement park this summer, you should be covered.


Fire up that popcorn maker and cover the popcorn with the spiciest buffalo sauce you can find and enjoy it without worrying about heartburn with Pepcid Complete.
