479° founder Jean Arnold spent several years experimenting with organic popcorn and flavoring it with exotic seasonings inspired by her international upbringing and training at Le Cordon Bleu in London. In the process, she came upon the discovery that 479 degrees Fahrenheit is the optimal temperature for popping corn. Jean knew immediately that "479°" (four-seven-nine degrees) would be name of her company, because it reflects the careful attention to detail that she works hard to incorporate into every single element of the business, from the pristine ingredients to the beautiful packaging to the avid dedication to customer satisfaction.
All our innovative, delicious popcorn snacks are made with high quality ingredients which we source locally whenever possible. Our flavors are low calorie, non-GMO, and gluten free, made with organic, heirloom corn, and come packaged in big, beautiful bags.
To ensure freshness, we use high quality packaging that provides superior protection from oxygen and moisture. We recommend you refer to the best by date on each package, however unopened packages should stay fresh for 6-9 months. Once opened, store in an airtight container and consume within a week - that is, if you can resist the temptation to devour every last delicious kernel in a single sitting.
Sorry, we don't provide gift-wrapping services at this time. However, our bags are beautiful designed, in rich, sophisticated colors that make them perfect for gift-giving. Just add a bow, and you're set!
