By the way, those of you with kids and grands, this fall, when the decorative cobs of dried "Indian" corn come out, gather the kids around the microwave, put an ear in and nuke it (try it yourself first to make sure it works, but I've never had it fail). Whiile it isn't the tastiest popcorn (after all, what we eat is grown specifically for that purpose), it shows kids -- who need to learn -- where their food comes from.

Wow, Claire--I remember those days and especially going to drive-ins--"Planet of the Apes" will always be special because that's when my Dad came home ALIVE from Viet Nam and we all piled into the car to see it. Glad to know that bacon flavored popcorn isn't a secret. Thanks for the memories.

expat, you and I obviously have a lot in common. I distinctly remember shopping for trailers to live in when we expected Dad to be ordered to Vietnam. His orders came through, and they were for Germany rather than the expected Vietnam. There was a lot of celebrating (and baby sister 9 mos later!).

You're right, Claire, we really do, only I didn't get a baby sister 9 months later!!!

I love baby rice popcorn. No hulls, such a great taste to it, and it makes the cutest popping noises you have ever heard.
Wonderful stuff!!!
