At a farmers market in my area they sell bags of the most delicious kettle popcorn to die for

I use an air popper and usually don't put anything on my popcorn, I love how big and slightly chewy the air popper makes it. It's on of my favorite snacks. :)

I like it air popped with just a little butter.

I don't like movie theater popcorn. It is too greasy

I season my popcorn with "spray" butter and various toppings like:
Cinnamon and Splenda
Mrs. Dash -Various flavors
Lawry's Seasoning salt
Garlic powder
Chili powder
Parmesan cheese
Adobe seasoning
Italian Seasoning-oregano, rosemary etc

All depends on my mood!

I am not a real fan of popcorn but I received a microwave popcorn maker. It was a bowl made from an unidentified product and a plastic cover. You use the regular popcorn kernels that you can get at any grocery. No oil. It tastes just like the air popped. You can add toppings at the end. I liked it because you can make only what you will eat. For me that was way less than a bag. You can also make one batch and have different toppings on everyone's portion.

I think the last time I used it was to pop some old kernels for packing material.

Microwave popcorn with nothing else added. Sometimes if my fat total is low for the day will splurge and melt a T. butter----thats a real treat.

Great, if you can eat it air popped with nothing on it.

I love the occasional bag of popcorn in the evening. I usually take the easy way out and use a healthy microwave version.

I have an air popper (received two as Christmas gifts in one year) and that thing rocks. No unpopped kernals and total control over what you add to it. I like it plain, maybe with a little bit of olive oil and garlic powder or garlic salt. My husband likes his a bit... richer, so we try to compromise. Way cheaper than theater popcorn. The only trick is sneaking it in!

I'm with EOWYN and others in that I like it best popped on the stove. I do mine in a large frying pan that has a large domed lid. Difference between me and others is that I like it with lots of butter and salt. I used to eat it plain and I don't know when things went downhill! I've been known to eat just popcorn as a meal during a good movie. Don't have it too often, though. My way = too fattening.

popcorn rocks! I usually get the air popped stuff at Whole Foods. It's expensive, suppose I could make it myself, but, well, I buy it and have it around. My boyfriend eats it too!

I'm still doing the microwave - I LOVE a bag of popcorn in the evening. That's right - a whole bag. It fits in my diet.

I like Redenbacher's Naturals (simply salted)

when we do pop corn on the stove, we always use olive oil

I like to make it in a kettle too - it seems to stay warmer longer! The tablespoon of oil for the whole kettle is worth the extra calories to me!

Yes, but you have to use oil, and a healthy oil like olive has a smoke point that is too low for cooking at that kind of heat.

I've tried microwaving too! But too many unpopped kernels. I still prefer popping in a pot!

I don't eat popcorn, but I have heard that you can put it in a paper bag and cook it in the microwave with no oil. The recipe is 1/2 C kernals in a lunch-sized bag--fold the top over a couple of times and zap it for 3 minutes.

I think that movie theater popcorn or from a vendor is very expensive compared to if you buy the corn kernels and pop your own! Not to mention all the butter, sugar and whatever else they add in to make it yummy!

Popping your own corn is easy! Just take a pot with a sturdy cover, put in 1 tablespoon of cooking oil, put a handfull or so of the corn kernels, cover the pot, turn on the heat and wait. You should be able to hear them popping! The moment the popping slows down, turn off the heat, or you'll end up burning your popcorn!

It's fun and easy, not to mention cheaper and healthier! I don't add anything to my popcorn except that one tablespoon of oil. I don't even add salt as I'm watching my sodium! Try it plain, like that, you just might like it!

Just wanted to share!
