Sweet, salty and crunchy, it’s everything you could want in a movie night snack, but when you have a migraine, you may feel like you can’t make it through. No worries, Excedrin® to the rescue!Popcorn Peanut Brittle

Migraines are a torturous part of my life. Too often they have made me miss activities due to the intense pain they bring. I was first diagnosed with migraines in high school and to this day have at least 8 migraine days a month. I have tried prescription medication, but have had no luck. Over the years I have learned that when I know a migraine is starting, I need to take my Excedrin® Migraine.


If you think that you are suffering from migraines, talk to your doctor. When a migraine starts I need fast relief. I don’t have time to hope that my medicine will work, I need to know it will. Excedrin® Migraine delivers fast relief for my migraines, with the relief in as little as 30 minutes. There is a reason it is the #1 Neurologist recommended solution for migraines. (Among OTC medicine for migraines. Symphony Health Solutions, 2016.)

Migraines always come at the most in-opportune times. As a mom, nights out are few and far between. After weeks of looking forward to a Girls Night Movie Marathon, I was just about to make my famous Peanut Brittle Popcorn when I started to see spots. Spots are a tell tale sign that a migraine is coming on. Rather than curl up in bed and miserably text my friends that I wasn’t going to make it, Excedrin® Migraine to rescue. I followed the directions on the box and it wasn’t long before the medicine kicked in and I was back to making Peanut Brittle Popcorn for my much anticipated movie night!

While Excedrin® Migraine has become a must have at my house, don’t use it if you’re under 18 or pregnant and consult your doctor if you think you are suffering from migraines and be sure to only use it has directed. As for me, thanks to Excedrin® Migraine, I was pain free, able to enjoy movie night and treat my friends to an incredible Peanut Brittle Popcorn treat. I’m sure you want to treat your friends as well, so here is the recipe!Gluten Free Popcorn Peanut Brittle

  1. While I was growing up in India, peanut brittle was my most favorite snack. We don’t see peanut brittles here in the states that much, I think, because of the peanut allergy fear..but everytime I eat it, I’m flooded with my childhood memories.

  2. I’m so sorry that you have to deal with migraines Amanda. My sister has had them, too, for decades, and I know they’re life-altering for her. Perhaps I should make her some of this brittle to go with her Excedrin – that would definitely make her smile!

  3. Oh you poor thing, those migraines sound horrible. I’ve got a few friends who suffer badly from them so I’ll be sure to pass this info along. In the meantime though – those peanut brittle bites look amazing! 🙂

  4. I’m so sorry to hear about your Migraine suffering. Fortunately, I’ve never experienced one and I hope that trend continues. That popcorn peanut brittle is another story — I’d like to experience that ALL THE TIME!

  5. Popcorn brittle??? I’ve never had or even seen popcorn brittle… yes please! I used to get headaches all the time and Excedrine is my go-to headache stopper 🙂

  6. This looks so delicious. I think I girls night movie marathon is in order soon. I have been so stressed and getting lots of headaches myself so a night off for some fun would be so good!
