No. Not microwave popcorn. That's gross. Hot air popped pop corn. Fluffy fresh popcorn faster than in the microwave AND way better for you.
Meet my pop corn popper. Its name is Presto PopliteThere's also the question of what kind of kernels to use. Yellow kernels are standard. They're the ones you see most often at the grocery store. Publix sells white kernels. I love them. They pop into smaller pieces but they taste better. But the holy grail of popping corn is the purple/red/black kernel. You know the kind companies make dark corn chips out of. Those kernels are fabulous. They pop even smaller but they've got such a good taste, I don't have to add ANY toppings.
ah. Toppings. Daughter loves a little (or a lot of) parmesan cheese.
I like about a tablespoon of melted butter, a little chili powder and a little parmesan cheese. Unless I can get my hands on red/blue/black kernels -- then it's plain.
I've also heard that the packets you use to make ranch and Italian dressing are good too.
