I love a nice big bowl of popcorn. Restraint isn't even attempted when I've got a bowl in my lap. But popcorn from a microwaveable bag is gross and when consumed, I'd always feel awful after. It's been a long time since I purchased a box of bags of the stuff - I just can't wrap my head around the fact that the inside of the bag flavors the popcorn for you. Wouldn't you rather just melt real butter and put real salt over the top... amiright? If this isn't a good enough reason to stay away from the stuff then mayhaps this won't interest you. However, I think it's worth noting that even if it's been proven that microwaveable popcorn doesn't cause lung cancer, it's likely that it's probably not a good idea to consume it.
One suitable alternative to bags of microwave popcorn are the kernels you can buy and pop in a pot - much healthier and safer and you can flavor however you like. But, how about you take it one step further and try it from an actual cob of popping corn!
I think if I heated it in a bag more kernels would have popped - it will take a bit of experimenting to get the perfect recipe down, but I'm up for the challenge. There were plenty of cobs to go around at the market - try it out!
