Question How do you like to eat popcorn? (Multiple Choice)

Popcorn makes the best snack. I like to eat it with a little salt and minimal butter. One of my favorite treats is caramel popcorn or porcorn balls.

How what is your favorite way to eat popcorn?


Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

Caramel corn (homemade) with loads of peanuts thrown in ....Oh, that makes me crave it right now!

Or just plain with a crisp, juicy apple on the side.

A little salt & butter, butter, butter...

I usuallly don't eat popcorn balls, but this one sounds sooo good.

Heavenly Hash Popcorn

1/4 cup butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup toasted pecans
6 cups popped popcorn
4 cups miniature marshmallows

In a heavy saucepan put the butter, chocolate and pecans. Cook over a moderate heat till melted, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Pour over the popped corn and marshmallows. Stir well. Spread out on a buttered cookie sheet and refrigerate to cool.

For variations, you may wish to substitute butterscotch morsels or use bitter chocolate. White chocolate pieces in place of the chips makes a pretty white candy which can be colored and molded into shaped cake pans. Yogurt candy coating can also be used for a more piquant flavor.

Popped plain then add spray butter on it.

Sometimes add seasonings to it. I have this stuff called Mongolian Fire Oil that's good sometimes. I've tried Mrs. Dash on it to.

I love it most ways that are not sweet (I am not crazy about sweets). I like to raid my spices when making popcorn and add all sorts of different ones. Chili powder is one of my favorites. I also like to sprinkle some Tabasco on as well. Oh how could I forget, I love to make brown butter and use that instead of just regular butter. It adds a nuttiness that is just great.

I love popcorn! I like air popped best. Once in a blue moon I'll pop some the old fashioned way on the stove top. I don't like the buttery, salty microwave stuff at all. =/

Usually I toss it with a couple dashes of soy sauce for some flavor and call it good.

But if I'm feeling wicked, I'll add a touch of butter, a sprinkle of garlic and some parmesan cheese.

Popsrite makes a butter flavored popcorn salt that is just delicious, and that's really all I want on my popcorn. Now, my husband wants it all! Butter, cheese, what have you.

We like to put salt, pepper & grated cheddar cheese on ours! We make it on the stove but whenever we go to the movies, I like the movie popcorn.
