Do you add anything to your popcorn?

Do you like the original kind of popcorn or do you add something fun and extra to it? I would love to hear what you put in it and get some ideas. Has anyone tried the sweet tasting microwavable popcorn? I forgot what brand it was but it is a well known brand with an old man. Anyone know what I'm talking about? I really like that kind. I have never tried putting anything to my popcorn and I wanted to know other people thought about it. Any suggestions? What's your all time favorite?

I think that you are talking about kettle corn and the brand that you are referring to is Orville Reddenbacher (spelled right?). Personally, I'm not a fan of kettle corn. I like to sprinkle parmesan cheese on popcorn. Adds a nice flavor. They have different flavors that you can sprinkle on your popcorn at the movie theater now but I've never seen them in the market. I love popcorn. I snack on it every night

Yes, thats the brand! I heard of kettle corn but I didn't know that was it. It should say it on the box. I think its a twist. Cool! I hope to try that next time. I wish, I had that kind of movie theater around. I would love that! But, I would hope it would be inexpensive. Then again, I almost never go to the movies. Really? Every Night? I would get tired of it.

Yes I like to squeeze a lime and add valentina's hot sauce it is really good that way you should try it. I really like the popcorn that you get in the theater but I have not been to one in a few years, but it is by far the best I think.When I am at home I pop pop secret.

Cool! That sounds good. I love sour and spicy! Just thinking of it makes my mouth water. If you like spicy and sour, you should try the Spicy Cheetos with Lime. It's very yummy.

I just like to add salt to my popcorn, if it's not flavorful enough. Butter is just so unhealthy...but it's sooo good on popcorn! I try to avoid it by using salt instead. I like sweet popcorn sometimes, like kettle corn or caramel corn, but it's too much effort to make it myself.

I know right?! I mean, popcorn is so healthy but when you add all this extra stuff to make it how you like or to make it better , it makes it the worst thing ever! It's a good alternative to chips,though.

I have used both microwavable and air popped. I think air popped is best. The microwavable I find sometimes tastes stale even though you have just made it. I add nothing to microwavable popcorn as it already has flavoring added. The air popped I like best with butter and salt. I have tried the flavour shakers at the grocery store but I don't really care for them. They are mostly additives anyway and no good for you. Popcorn is a good choice for a snack because it does not have the transfat and calories of potato chips and other snacks the stores sell today.

I agree sometimes they do taste stale. Or sometimes they get burnt for no reason. That's what I hate most about microwavable popcorn. It drives me nuts! I agree, it is better and since it is so simple you can add in what you like to make it better.

I used to only add butter and salt to my freshly popped pocorn. Now i like to add cheese flavoring as well. All you have to do is check where popcorn is sold to get some good topping ideas.

I sometimes add that special seasoning you can buy in different flavors. I love a lil flavor to my popcorn. Or I put parmesian cheese on it. So yummy. My fav popcorn is carmel popcorn and kettle corn..

I make popcorn on the stove and usually just add butter and salt. I have used those dry soup mixes, like cream of chicken or the packets that come in ramen noodles and that's good. I don't usually eat sweet popcorn, but if you like it, try mixing a little molasses into it while it's still hot. It's sticky, but good!

I prefer my popcorn without anything on it. I don't even put salt on it usually. I put it in a brown bag and let it pop in the microwave. Then I cut the top off the bag and eat it fresh and hot! love it!!
