What do you like on your popcorn?

I like home popped popcorn, just done on the stove nothing fancy. I have always just put on salt and butter. Then I thought I would be daring and used butter and seasoned salt. I like it that way. I just need to try new things all the time. How do you do your popcorn? My friend used to put soy sauce on it, I haven't been brave enough to try that yet. I need fresh ideas. Any good ideas?

Well I'm pretty boring. I just like butter and salt on mine. I make the microwave popcorn and add to it from there. I have done the butter salt that they sell for popcorn and that can be really good on it too. Of course my favorite is movie theater popcorn. It's something with how they make it that makes it taste really good. Of course I get butter on it and add salt but it's very good. I've been known to drop the teenager off at the movies and I don't go to watch one but I'll buy a box of popcorn to eat at home.

I have been banned from ever having microwave popcorn in the house. My hubby just hates the smell, I think he is nuts but I allow him this one quirk...

I don't think I'd be able to live with that but I guess you can air pop or do it on the stove.

I am lazy so I mainly just use microwave popcorn even though I know it is not good for you. When I was growing up we had a popcorn popper. We just added butter and salt. I have taken hot popcorn and melted shredded mild cheddar cheese on top of it then sprinkled hot sauce over it. Yum!

The way I like my popcorn is when I have the microwave type and then I'll melt extra butter and pour it on. I find that if I eat popcorn from theatres it makes me sick, not sure why but I get an ill feeling from it. I was using those flavored powders that came in a salt shaker(I hope you know what I mean) we would just shake it on our popcorn. My favorite flavor was Ranch.

My friend gets sick from the "butter" they put on movie popcorn and asks for it plain, I thought it was so she didn't have to share! I know the shakers you mean I was going to try one then I changed my mind but I think next time I see them I'll try one.

I like to melt some cheese (hot, american or swiss ) and put that on top and sometimes i'll put butter but usually if i'm not putting cheese on it then i don't put anything on it and i just ate it straight out the bag because it already has butter on it

I thought the cheese would make the popcorn soggy but I'm willing to try as I love cheese.

i like butter on my popcorn but seeing that many people like different things i'd have to say it depends, i like popcorn normal without anything on it sometimes.....other days i just feel like throwing anything on it and eating it. Probably sounds corny, but thats me. :D

i just like the usual butter and salt on the popcorn. i think anything else that would add would ruin it.

Nacho cheese! Don't poor it all over it, but grab a few kernals at dip it in like. It is really yummy. Another things that sounds really nasty, but it actually really good is mustard and jalepenos! i used to work at the cinema so we came up with weird things to eat on our popcorn lol

Hmmm well being that up until now!! THe only thing that i have ever placed ontop of my popcorn was melted butter. I also hear that melted cheese is delicious as well as powdered cheese. Lol i dont think that i am that bold to try these things as of yet. Maybe in the near future. But great question.

I have such a craving for popcorn right now I think I will have to pop some and see what I have in the cupboards to try.

I will use those microwave packets in a pinch, but I prefer air popped or better yet stove top. I use real butter and salt. I've even put parmesan cheese over it a few times to try. If 'm wanting something sweeter, I make up a mixture of corn syrup and sugar on the stove and just pour it over the hot popcorn and stir - makes it like a loose popcorn ball. Good stuff. You know you are instigating severe popcorn cravings here on myLot!

The loose popcorn ball idea is great. I love caramel corn and never thought about making it myself. I think I have a craving...

I found a great very lo-cal popcorn called "sweet and salty" by Reddenbachers.. then, lo and behold they discontinued it, or all the stores around me did.. and the "kettle korn" tho close is no where as near as good! It's so frustrating! And seems to happen to me quite often!

That is one of my pet peeves. They come out with a good product and leave it on the shelves just long enough to become addicted then poof gone

Soy sauce on popcorn??Well, thats an idea.^_^ I dont really knwo any new ways of eating popcorn. We make it the way its always been cooked. Popped and after that a bit of sprinkling with salt. Thats it. But I dont midn the comemrcially avialable one either. I really love the sweeta and salty taste of Kettle Corn popcorn. It mixes the taste that I lvoed about popcorn but it adds to my sweet tooth so its the best of both worlds for me. Anyways, goodluck wiht your quest in finding new ways of eating popcorn. Hope you save me some!^_^ Enjoy!

I do it the same way u do it except that i put a dash of turmeric powder to it. I just have an idea . maybe u should try and put some pepper to it. It's just an idea , i have never tried it so do it at your own risk. I prefer to buy popcorn from outside most of the time. I love cheese and schezwan popcorn. Hey maybe u can try and add some schezwan sauce. Might turn out good who know's ? All the best ~pinks~

Turmeric powder that is a good idea. It is a great spice to cook with.

I use to put powdered cheese on my popcorn. The cheese was leftover from boxed mac and cheese. It wasn't bad. But now I fix the buttery microwave popcorn.

I normally make microwave popcorn. I add various things depending on what sounds good.. usually some Johnny's seasoning, or Tony's seasoning, some parmesan, some garlic powder. I have also added cumin, cajun seasoning, or italian seasoning, or smoked sea salt from a grinder. It would probably be even better using garlic infused oil and oil popping it on the stove in a big covered pot, then melting some butter along with some seasonings (real butter, a dash or two of worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cumin) and shaking up the popcorn in a bag along with the seasoned butter.

I put melted butter on mine. But me kids like the cheese or caramel popcorn. I love going to the movies and getting a large tub of popcorn. To me it was always the best.

well, just like fries, i eat popcorn together with a sundae or ice cream. unlike fries that i only dip it on the sundae, i mix the popcorn and the sundae, it really tastes good, especially if you like the taste of sweet and salty. why don't you try it?

I like my popcorn with butter and salt. Once in a while I will add some of that Parmesean cheese like you sprinkle on spaghetti. I have a friend that sprinkles yeast flakes on popcorn. I hated that but she loved it.
