John Deere Party Food Ideas – Indian Corn Popcorn Balls

John Deere party food ideas are just the thing for a good ole country party.  Here in Vermont, we have a lot of farms and a lot of corn fields. Of course, you cannot have a farm without a John Deere tractor. You just can’t. I love themed party foods but I get tired of the typical cakes and cupcakes sometimes.  I want something a little bit lighter but still fun to make and serve. Since I am part of the Good Cook Blogger Program, I got a box full of Good Cook products and popcorn so that I could share a popcorn ball creation with you all using the Good Cook products.
