Do you use microwave popcorn in the bag or pop your own? Do you use an air popper or just buy jiffy pop? Do you buy your popcorn pre made already? I generally make microwave popcorn but recently, I have been popping some with just kernels I have around here in a paper bag it is cheaper and healthier.

I get out a pan and a lid and a little oil. I put the oven burner to pretty high and when its hot and the oil is about to sizzle I toss in popcorn kernels, slam the lid tight and not too long after that, we have popped corn. Garlic shaker time!!

Oh man I remember that. We'd take salt and put that and the popcorn in a paper bag and shake it. Did you know now they have all kinds of popcorn flavors that come in a shaker?

Air popper. There are chemicals in microwave popcorn that aren't good for you.

I don't eat popcorn, but when I did, it was microwave popcorn, no butter.

We have a hot air popper and are still working on a 50lb bag of kernels that I bought 5 years ago. We go weeks when we eat a lot of popcorn, and then a long stretch without. No prepopped or microwave popcorn around here!

I tried an experiment and made popcorn in the microwave in a dish. I will not be repeating this. A paper bag would definitely be an improvement.

I've tried the microwave in the bag popcorn and the air popper. My air popper broke and didn't last long. So now I make my own popcorn on the stove top. I prefer making my own than the microwave - it just tastes better homemade.

I make my own, I heat a wok with oil mixed with margarine or butter, when it's hot I put in the corn we buy in the supermarket, cover, wait till it pops, increase the heat, when the popping stops viola! Popcorn!

I make my popcorn in my dreams. I have IBS so I can't eat it anymore. That and nuts are the things I miss the most.

We just buy popcorn in the street because it's cheaper.

I don't like popcorn and don't even like the smell. I prefer potato crisps as a snack.
