by being made to watch 48 hours of "ishtar" straight for mentioning it...... But what is the favorite microwave popcorn here? I don't really want to sacrifice the space for a dedicated oil popper, but I do like to indulge in popcorn occasionally. I recall the reddenbudders I got last year of so were pretty good, but haven't found a truly, "wow, I need to buy more of this" brand/flavor.
Popsecret Jumbo Pop. Though America's Test Kitchen didn't like it. They thought it tasted artificially. They preferred Newmans. Not the organic. America's Test Kitchen is a cooking, taste testing show on PBS.
The Stir Crazy and Megapop are good. Just put the popcorn in a LARGE baking pan in a 200 - 250 degree oven (don't go higher it will burn) for about 20 minutes after you pop it. It's crisps up nicely.
I haven't found it at every grocery store, but Orville R's Old Fashioned Butter (even has a picture of an popcorn cart on the box) is the best, most authentic butter flavored popcorn I've ever tried. I even prefer that over the stuff I make on the stove, and that's pretty dang good.
Yep, Act II. Buy it in bulk from Sam's Club, but since we don't eat that much it lasts a long time.
And don't feel bad about not going for the theater style popper. I made the choice for a microwave/convection oven instead - which means I can bake cookies, broil appetizers, and nuke popcorn. Very versatile.
I am a Pop Weaver Extra butter (I cheat and put some butter more on too) from walmart fan too. A friend at work made some about 5 years ago. I thought walmart popcorn?? It sure did smell good and after trying it. Orville was dead to me.
