    Anyway, health concerns might be able to be avoided:

    If there is any danger at all associated with microwave popcorn, it is most present when the bag is first opened and heated fumes escape. Breathing in these fumes will expose the consumer to the highest level of diacetyl possible at the consumer level. This may cause damage to the smallest air passages in the consumer's lungs or trigger a pre-existing asthma attack. Young children and those with compromised lung capacity may also have an adverse reaction after breathing in the first fumes of a hot bag of microwave popcorn.

    Yes, you can't beat oil in a pan or kettle. It takes a few minutes and is so much better than other options. Short of really screwing up the oil amount you can't screw it up either.

    Mini bags? I don't like the sound of that...


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

    Re: Recommend Best Microwave Popcorn

    I just want to know if I'm the only person in the world who doesn't like popcorn of any kind? Never have, don't know why. I'll eat it if I'm absolutely starving and there's nothing else around.
