How do you like your popcorn?

It's our favorite treat around our house. We used to buy microwave popcorn but after finding out they were worried about the flavorings and additaves they put into the popcorn we switched over to air popped corn. It was a challenge to find just plain jane popcorn kernels, everywhere carried microwave only. I found a local store that sells it in I suppose you could say a bulk quanity of 12lbs for $5 is a good deal where the grocery store sells it for over $1.50/lb! So this is what we had for our snack tonight.... Typically we like it with butter drizzled, parmesian cheese and some salt. Usually I'll have it plain myself or with a lil bit of butter and salt drizzled. And upon occasion I'll have butter and cajun seasoning. How do you like your popcorn? Does anyone else like it plain? Do you prefer microwave over air popped? or kettle popped?

I only like plain popcorn. It's very easy to make our own popcorn in home. Usually i add little salt on it for the taste. And it's done, ready to consume without any worry about the additive nor unhealth ingredients inside. Popcorn with any taste in the market is just the variation of tasting. But most of the sellers use unhealth ingredients inside and sometimes with chemical additive ingredients. But i think if we really want to buy popcorn, we could choose sugar, salt, cheese, or butter as the topping or additive. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

Hello 3SnuggleBunnies , my preference for popcorn is to have a touch opf butter put in before it is popped in a pan. I do not like too much butter and definately do not like salt in it due to the fact I am allergic to iodized salt but I can have a touch of salt from time to time. Before I got this allergy I used to use jonny's season salt and jonny's popcorn salt whenever I made popcorn. Now I buy microwave popcorn made by haggen, not too buttery and not too much salt.

I love microwaved popcorn but I like movie popcorn more drowned in butter which of course, is completely unhealthy. It's so good I go tho the movies just for it. :)

I like microwaved but stove popped is good to. Not sure if that's the same as air or if it's the same as kettle. I like just light butter or maybe a lot but if It wasn't microwaved I'd probably just use salt. I know one year I used to eat microwave popcorn all the time, that and ice cold water. That's all I'd eat for an entire summer and I think I lost a bit of weight, although the popcorn was buttered down a lot... That's one reason why it's little butter for me now.

we have been making it on the stove for quite a long time (its way cheaper than microwave popcorn) but i guess i am pretty boring, just lots of salt and lots of butter! my daughter has bought 'kernals cheese flavouring' (kernals sells popcorn at local malls here in canada), so thats how she likes it.

I love the 100 calorie kettle corn. But since I got a very cheap microwave of low power-I didn't know any better when I bought it-it burns the popcorn every time so I haven't had popcorn for two years. I don't care about the additives and flavorings, I'd rather die of cancer than to be so huge I have to be buried in a piano box hauled into the grave with a crane. Of course, I'm an organ donor who will be cremated but I still feel the same. It takes days, probably, to cremate a body with so much blubber as I'd have if not for 100 calorie snacks!

i usually just put butter and salt on mine. i prefer it air popped,but i'll take microwave if that's all that's available. i used to make it in a covered pan with a little bit of oil sometimes.

Just had popcorn this morning and this afternoon while loggong in to mylot LOL. It's cheesy in flavor but I like barbeque best. Well, the grocery store ran out of barbeque flavored powder for the popcorn. I also like plain with a little salt. Popcorn with butter is also nice but I can't finish a lot LOL. I cook popcorn using a large pan and cover it up and wait for the corn to pop over low to medium heat.

just plain popcorn, add a little bit of salt and that will do the job. i don't like cheesy popcorn cause it's a bit messy. some portions of the cheese powder remains in my fingers haha... the way on how it is cook, i like it microwave!
