I remembered my father was fond of bringing pop corn every time he arrive at home from work. it’s his surprise delight to us kids and we love him so much for doing that. It was reallu one of my favorites when I was still a kid. The taste of the popcorn before was very classic and I missed that now. The popcorn now wasn’t the same anymore as before. Now, love it when paired with cheese. My other siblings sometimes put ketchup on it.

Hi Flagella, I love popcorn with cheese. I can't imagine the taste of a popcorn with ketchup LOL. But if they loved it with ketsup it must taste good. Well, i cna only eat popcorn whenever i watch a movie. That's my favorite snacks.

The smell of popcorn is just classic. I used to love it as a child. However, now I like chips more. My sisters still love it. I would prefer chips though. My mom prepares it at home with different flavors. and the whole house has a beautiful aroma of it! I love the feeling of it being made.

ya, kids love popcorn. I like to eat popcorn especially while watching movies. as always movies are always attached to pop corns as while watching movies something should always be eaten and what else could be more great than a pop corn.

The smell of popcorn is just so tempting. This is what we would have every time we went to the movies. And we got just the plain kind. Now we have all types of varieties like caramel, spice, etc. Every time my mom makes popcorn at home it reminds me of those days.

Father didn't bring that to home. But when we decided to go outside with my family, i always prefer for POPCORN.

Reading your post made me remember my childhood. There was a popcorn vendor in his bike going around our place. We would wait for him everyday. I loved this sweetened popcorn that he sold. He would put them in a paper cone. I miss that. It's different now. My kids would buy this microwavable popcorn in supermarkets. They like the butter and cheese flavor.

I used to eat pop corn when I was a kid, too. There were two types of it, one was made of corn, which is coarse; the other is rice, which is finer. It was very common to see pop corn men popping corn with their original machine, a dirty net connected with a small container of high press. There was a meter in the container, indicating the pressure. When the pop corn was almost ready, the men shout to warn people of the booming sound. So people covered their ears. The newly popped corn was tasty. It remains popular snack thoughout my childhood. Now, pop corn is promoted to advanced ones with different flavors. I love cream flavor the most. the traditional type is becoming less common now though we occasionally see pop corn men pop corns on spot.

I still love popcorn with butter on it. I also love carmel popcorn. When I would go to the movies I would not eat much dinner so I could get me a big bucket of butter popcorn to eat while I watch the movie. Yummy Yummy

I used to eat popcorn all the time as a kid, but I stopped snacking on it until recently. I like mine buttery, but I also like the cheddar cheese popcorn that they have. It's such a great snack because it feels you up and it's low in calories. I enjoy it when I'm watching The Biggest Loser on Tuesday nights, or when football is on.

I am a huge popcorn fan when I was a kid. My mom was given this yellow colored popcorn maker. I love hearing the popping sound it makes. We used that machine to our heart's gusto till it got damaged because of overuse. In the movies, I would like my popcorn with extra butter. Delicious buttery taste. You mentioned about popcorn taste being classic. How would you describe a classic taste of popcorn? Currently here in Manila, there is this company selling a product called "Kettle Corn". Their popcorn is a mixture of both sweet and salt at the same time. I never knew that sweet and salty combined would taste this great. I am craving for it as I am speaking but it's night already. Oh well....

My kids love popcorn. They usually eat buttery salty popcorn or the toffee popcorn that I make. The toffee popcorn is so buttery and sugary they do not get it often though.
