Illuminating fact:

Generic brand microwavable kettle corn at 99 cents a box (and 33 cents a pack) is much fluffier and tastier than the Orville Redenbacher's regular priced box of oil-drenched corn stuffs. A wonderful fact to know if you not only like your popcorn but are cheap besides.

If I had an air popper I'd be all over making fresh saltless popcorn and downing it by the fistful, but I make do with some very tasty kettle corn indeed.

And what brand of orange juice would you recommend to go along with that? :)

I have found that Penzey's Cheese Sprinkle on microwave popcorn made of regular kernels in a micro-popper thingo I bought at Le Tarzhay is sad, but zesty.

Well, it was unbuttered popcorn but with sugar and a bit of salt to it. Kettle corn is nice and sweet in a "hey I just put sugar on my popcorn" kind of way, but not a "hey I just dumped an entire bowlful of sugar on my popcorn" kind of way.

I am sorry to hear about your adventures with aspartame, though, but it's a well-known fact that many olde-fashioned homesteads kept a ready supply of aspartame in their kitchens, especially after the Saccharine Blight of '52.

Sarah and I have found that el cheapo Pop Weaver brand microwave popcorn (regular, not kettle) is much better than either Act II or Redenbacher's. Unfortunately, the only place we can find the 15-packs is Wal-mart, and we refuse to shop there, so we pay a little more per unit by getting 4-packs at Family Dollar.
