I really don't like popcorn but once I start eating it, I won't stop. It's like light, fluffy, buttery crack.

I mean, when you thought of making popcorn just when you put in the VHS...that popcorn machine was fucking loud and always needed to stand behind the bowl with a towel so the popcorn doesnt overshoot onto the kitchen floor.

Even with the jiffy bags you had to sit at the stove and shake that thing and go in circular motions on the burner. Still the beginning of the movie is missed.

I'm not old enough to remember the popcorn straight from the big pot.

well right now i'm still sittin on about 100 packs of buttery microwave popcorn.

back in the day we had the air popper. with the butter melting cup on top... the best popcorn really.

sometimes in the winter, we would use that fireplace tool to pop them in the fireplace.

Popcorn is made in a microwave... everything is made in a microwave... it's only natural... lol

J/K

I remember my mom or my sisters dumpin popcorn out of a big ol' jar into a big ol' pot... shimmying the pot over the burner fire until the pot lid started rising up... and then putting the popcorn in a giant bowl or paper bag with the sides rolled down and pouring butter all over the popcorn... butter which had been melted in another big ol' pot btw...

Good times...

pour some oil in a tall pot, let it heat up, pour in some popcorn kernels and keep the pan moving over medium heat. don't stop moving the pan unless you like charred-ass popcorn


btw if you want some flavor in the popcorn, flavor the oil before putting in the kernels

Most food in the microwave comes out like crap. But popcorn is alright in it.

Are you ever too lazy to pick up the popcorn with your hands so you just stick out your tongue to the bowl for easy transfer?

If you could somehow make popcorn whose kernel disappeared when it popped you'd be a billionaire.

I sometimes use a popcorn maker, but most times I use the microwave. I am sure it kills me by microwaving it, but it is faster

I'm a 80's baby and I will tell you that the best way is one of them air pop machines like shown in the first post. Its got a lil insert that you can put butter in and it warms as the popcorn is popping. Its wonderful and my childhood was better for it.


Into adulthood I endorse the microwave popcorn but fuck any (ANY) brand that says movie butter CUZ they a goddamn lie. A GODDAMN LIE. Plus it always depend on the size of microwave for the bag to come out right. You might burn it or end up with mad kernels. With the air popper you pop it down to the last bit.


I say air popper.

Im pretty sure the government, under the direction of the NWO, does something to popcorn that causes you to be more compliant AND get cancer when you eat it.

I like it with a 3-cheese parmesan, romano, asiago blend.
