There is a candied popcorn recipe in The Joy of Cooking that uses molasses and it flat out rocks.  I've made this many times and people who have never tried molasses (yet claim to hate it???) have flipped for this recipe.

I'm assuming that you are interested in savory flavor profiles.  No matter what they may be, please ensure that the husks are effectively dealt with.  There would be nothing more annoying than to enjoy a popcorn-based amuse bouche and then be tormented by pocorn husk between the teeth/gums for the remaineder of the dinner.

I'm beginning to question your sincerity.  If all you intend to do is salted popcorn, then the most reasonable answer to your question is to pair it with canned beer.

 

But for a sweet treat, why not caramelize some sugar to drizzle over the salted popcorn, form it into a ball with a fruit center.  Make them bite-sized and serve with shaved melon that has been anointed with a squidge of lemon juice.

 

For a savory treat, do the same but anoint the popping oil with garlic and put whatever you have that is like ham or prosciutto in the middle.  Serve with the same shaved melon.

"Grind the popcorn" - I do not understand what this means.

Me neither, exactly.  I was almost afraid to ask.  But the mention of "popcorn salt" leads me to believe that the popcorn is getting blitzed until it is fine particles and then dusted on food products.

Truffle popcorn!

Truffle popcorn is great.

 

Crumbled bacon and a little bacon grease instead of butter is good, too.
