  • Buy the popcorn butter in the popcorn isle. Or they have the butter seasoning in a bottle near the popcorn as well.

  • any other "at home" ways?? i think that stuff is too expensive, and i dont think its worth buying for just a few uses. we dont eat popcorn that much, but when we do, i like to eat it with LOTS of butter =]

  • The popcorn seasoning is about 2 bucks and the butter is like 3 maybe 4 and lasts a long time. If you still want a cheaper way then you can try I can't believe its not butter or get a spray bottler to stay the popcorn so the butter isn't just being poured on it. if its bags of popcorn buy the extreme butter kind or if its bags with machine add extra butter once it starts popping

  • That Orville Reddenbacher popcorn oil, lasts forever. It's worth the 3 or 4 bucks.

  • it is the water in the butterthat causes it to "melt" you can use clarified butter or Ghee which contain no water. to make clarified butter ( the easiest way) melt the butter (micowave is fine) then refridgerate until the fat is solid drain off the water on the boottom by poking through, save it for flavoring veggies or potatoes and then remalt the butter for popcorn without ant water. I hope I have made myself clear.
