  • Yep,I had the same result
    I found one of those corn popper pans with the handle you turn as it pops,at goodwill for $3. It makes the best popcorn

  • I second the Whirly Pop. If you want to dare venture out today, drug stores usually have them on sale around Christmas. Making stovetop popcorn really doesn't take any longer than microwave, and added bonus, you don't get all the chemicals they spray inside the bag to make it pop. Even without the Whirly Pop - any non-teflon, deep saucepan or soup pot works, you just have to shake it a few times while it's popping.

  • Hot air poppers work well too

  • I bought a popper for the microwave, too, that works a zillion times better than the bags. Got it on Amazon, and I'll never use the bagged crap again. You can use any popcorn you get from the store, any topping you want, any oil, in this popper for the microwave, in two minutes, none of the bagged chemicals, it's totally wonderful. No chemicals. It's from Presto, for under $20. I wish I'd found it years ago. I bought some to give as Christmas presents, I'm so charmed with the thing.

  • I use a hot air popper. Love it. Absolutely freaking love it. It doesn't take any longer than the microwave, I can put real butter on it, and I get way more popcorn than out of a bag.

  • I agree with making it the old fashion way in a pot with some oil. Our favorite way is with coconut oil. No need for butter. And it is so light and tasty. The coconut isn't overwhelming either. You just get a hint with each bite. YUM! Add some sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. OMG!

  • going to have to look into the old way of making
    we eat a lot of it
    especially daughter, so i have to get kind that does not have the chemicals in it (or so it says it does not)

  • Weird because that's the kind I buy a lot of, and I have no issue with it.

    I still think Orville Redenbaucher's healthy popcorn is much tastier, though.

  • That brand is tasteless to me.

    I like garlic powder on my popcorn, sometimes coconut oil instead of butter too.
