Green Queen Loves: SOTE Gourmet Artisanal Popcorn
3 Mins Read
December 2016 Update: SOTE has now closed down operations permanently.
SOTE‘s founders Chelsea and Kate have the kind of faces that makes you think of fairytales. Turns out they met working at Hong Kong Disneyland. Their job? Being Disney princesses! Whilst living across the hall from each other (and making little girls swoon) , they discovered their mutual popcorn obsession. They also realized that Hong Kong had no good popcorn options. What’s on the market is sorely lacking in exciting flavour combinations and is packed with preservatives and “dirty” ingredients. With SOTE, Kate and Chelsea have changed all that. Welcome to Hong Kong’s first locally made gourmet popcorn brand!
5 Reasons Why SOTE is Awesome
- They only use non-GMO corn kernels
- Their boxes of goodness are 100% gluten-free.
- All the popcorns are popped with organic virgin coconut oil and extra virgin olive oil.
- The popcorn is only ever made in small batches by hand.
- Absolutely no chemical additives, preservatives, colorings, heavy coatings or synthetic sweeteners are added- only honey, peanut butter and cane sugar depending on the flavor.
Salivate Over Their Uber Creative Flavours
The teams are busy creating new ones all the time but here are some of their classic flavours:
Classic kernels with a salute of sea salt
Spicy chili with a bang of lime
THE BIG CHEESE
Cheesy Cheddar with a sneeze of Black pepper
Garden tomato with a shake of basil
Sweet Honey with a shimmy of cinnamon
Creamy caramel with a twirl of salt
Lovely lemon with a twist of honey
Coffee with a hit of vanilla
Sweet curry with a wave of coconut
SOTE is available to make popcorn a part of your life in any way possible. Looking for giveaways for a corporate event? Need baby shower favours? Want to add sass to your bestie’s birthday? Need to fill our the little one’s party goodie bags? SOTE has got you covered. They also do bespoke flavours, brand collaborations and bulk orders! Wow these ladies sure are busy, seems there is nothing they don’t do – to quote the founders themselves “the popcorn options are endless”. And we haven’t even mentioned Green Queen’s favourite service yet: SOTE can create personalized popcorn bars for you! How funky is that?
Did you know?
SOTE stands for ‘Salt Of The Earth’ because Chelsea and Kate believe that food taste better when enhanced with the life affirming power of sea salt. We are pretty excited to announce that SOTE will make their Made in HK Local Artisans Pop Up debut on Saturday May 3 so see everyone there. We have been lucky enough to get a taste preview of their popcorn and it is absolutely dee-licious! We couldn’t get enough and finished 6 boxes in 2 days! Woops!
