Why not try making stove popped popcorn? You can use healthy oils (like olive oil) and it will automatically make your popcorn moist.

I use butter flavored pan spray 0% fat and does not make your popcorn soggy. emoticon

I pop mine on the stove and usually give it a light mist of olive oil before adding seasonings... i like garlic powder & black pepper, parmesan & black pepper, lemon pepper, taco seasoning, etc. the possibilities are endless! sometimes i just flavor the oil i pop the kernels in and it works well- you can definitely add some hardier herbs at that time as well- like rosemary (with lemon zest it would be awesome!).

sometimes i just use the flavored popcorn shakers, too.

No Microwave popcorn, get the kernels and pop yourself. Air popper at Walmart $19.99
You'll be surprised to learn you forgot how good real popcorn tastes..

Use chili powder, garlic powder to flavor the popcorn or cinnamon powder...

Have 3 cups of air-popped popcorn, no butter or margarine, no salt..sprinkle with parm or romano which has protein...tastey too!

Popcorn is one of the healthiest foods anyone can eat..has fiber, protein, minerals and vitamins...Drizzle the popcorn with dark chocolate. Microwave dark chocolate chips and pour it over the popcorn...dark cocoa is healthy.

3 cups of air popped popcorn is around 100 calories....enjoy and get your B vitamins and some calcium from your treat.

I make my stove top popped in coconut oil and top with butter and sea salt. I do think sea salt would be enough though it taste yummy cooked in the coconut oil.

hot sauce
you get the "wet" pieces that you used to get with the butter poured on but you don't get the fat (make sure you look at the label on your hot sauce for fat, sugar and sodium)

Nutritional yeast!! Sounds strange, but some of the higher end movie theatres are starting to do it, and it really is tasty!! :-)

I spray my popcorn with butter flavored spray and sprinkle with a little Parmesan cheese and some paprika.

I can't stand popcorn but my roommates swear by buffalo sauce powder

I use garlic powder or one of those grinders you find in the spice section. I have one from Trader Joe's called an Everday Grinder - spices that would normally be in your kitchen all in oen bottle. So good!

I like steak seasoning, or parmesan & garlic powder/garlic salt. Or taco seasoning. Ranch dressing powder is also pretty good. Just beware the salt content of these, since they can be steep.

Parm cheese

BBQ Seasoning

Molly McButter

Chili Lime Seasoning

Buffalo Seasoning

pretty much any seasoning you have around... possibilities are endless!

I use a little I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray, then sprinkle on Parmesan cheese, or some Cajun seasonings. Sometimes even just a little salt does the trick.

Use Kernel Seasons flavored popcorn mixes. You can use a spray on oil or butter to make it stick. Here's their website. They have tons of awesome flavors.

My favs are Parmesan and garlic, sour cream and onion, and caramel corn. I eat these instead of chips. They also sell a few flavors including butter at several grocery stores. Look in the popcorn section, top or bottom shelf.

You could try something like Mrs. Dash seasonings. Some of them would be good on popcorn.

You could eat it dry?

I've also been known to spritz vanilla extract over a bowl.
