ISO popcorn toppings

I saw an ad for some cooking show where a guy was making "movie food". On the popcorn he said he was going to put brown butter, rosemary & salt so I went & tried it right away (didn't bother to watch him do it) & it was pretty tasty. What else goes on popcorn?

Kettle corn is made with sugar, salt & butter.....it's yummy.

Other toppings, I like are parmesan cheese....& chili powder with lime.

I've put parmesan cheese and garlic salt on popcorn. You could sprinkle taco seasoning on it, too.

When I worked at a movie theater Cinnamon and Sugar corn was a favorite amongst employees.

In college my roommate and I often added chocolate (crunch bars or butterfingers) to freshly microwaved corn..... But you know how freshman are.... havent done that in years.

If you pop your own, try popping it in regular oil with a few drops of Mongolian Fire Oil added in. It adds a nice heat. You get it in the Asian aisle of your supermarket.

Also, I love melted bacon grease added to freshly popped popcorn.

I use Lawry's seasoned salt in the oil before popping the corn. You get really good flavor and less salt.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

I had a vegan friend that used to sprinkle dried yeast on his popcorn.
It actually was quite good.
Not sure which type/brand though. It was granulated/powdered.

That is an interesting one Nick. I have never heard of that. Did it make the popcorn taste like fresh baked bread?

You can use just about anything in you spice cabinet. I also sometimes like to put some tobasco sauce in mine.
