Does anyone really pop their own popcorn anymore? or is it just microwave? Do you have a favorite brand?

If I get a popper, I'll use it. Right now I pop it in the microwave in a brown paper bag.

 We still pop popcorn on the stove or if we're camping over the fire. It's delicious and the kids love to hear it pop or the "thrill" when we take the lid off and they watch a few pieces pop out of the pan.

My parents pop their own... but honestly I think it tastes stale when they pop it. 

I rarely eat popcorn but I use to eat it every night before bed - till I realized how many added calories that was!

Always pop our own - I care for the smell of the microwave style, too artificial for me.  We buy the Orville Reddenbacker in the lage plastic jars.  It stays fresh in the jar and you can make the amount you like.  

Usually pop it on the stove, with a tiny bit of canola oil and use sea salt.  For a treat hubby makes us "kettle corn" by adding 2 Tablespoons of super-fine sugar into the oil with the corn, then salting it when popped.  It's great!

I love to pop it on the stove but I don't do it as much as I would like.
