    Re: Recommend Best Microwave Popcorn

    Get a Whirley Pop.
    Full batch on the stove top, less than five minutes. Far simpler and more consistent than your dad's stovetop popper. With Orville's brand I get around 10 unpopped kernels per batch.

    Re: Recommend Best Microwave Popcorn

    The kind I get at the movie theater. No butter.

    Seriously. I'm weird, but I'm a fan of slightly stale popcorn. There would be times in college I'd just pop some at night, throw it in a bowl and leave it so I could eat it for breakfast.

    Same with like, Peeps or marshmallow treats. Open the pack then let it air out (or if I'm impatient, freeze them).

    Well, then you just keep your arse over there in Hawaii....'cause we don't need weirdos like you around here, and we sure don't need you polluting the minds of our children with your stale popcorn enjoyment.

    <full disclosure, my weirdo wife is the same way...I could make her happy everyday by bringing home a bag of popcorn from our machine at work, and letting it sit on the counter overnight, but I...just...can't...do it. It's not natural>

    Re: Recommend Best Microwave Popcorn

    Of course non microwave popcorn is better people. That wasn't the thread topic however.

    Kind of like best bbq in Des Moines question and people harping KC.

    Along this vein, and also completely off topic, have you ever double-toasted your bread? Just toast it normally but only don't let it brown. Remove from toaster and let it get back to room temp (stand on edge to allow both sides to cool and dry out). Reinsert in the toaster until it's brown. Very crispy - kind of like a crouton. Love the melted butter on there and the CRUNCH. But then I love crunchy food, too.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    This is definitely one of my staples, but sometimes I make myself sick of it by eating too much over a relatively short period of time.

    Well your wife sounds like a wonderful and beautiful human being and you can tell her I congratulate her for putting up with a non-believer in the stale popcorn ways. To celebrate I'm going to Target today to buy some of their stale popcorn for lunch.
