    Default Popcorn

    So how do you like your popcorn? Buttered? Salted? With cheese? Or with icecubes?

    For me at least buttered. I can do without the salt.

    I can do without butter, but I need salt!

    In college, my misguided hippie friends used to ruin popcorn by putting brewer's yeast on it. <gag> More for them that way!

    Watching movies is not watching at all without a box of popcorn with extra butter and salt.

    Oh....of course with a date, to buy the popcorn, drinks and candies too!

    At the movies, extra butter, salt and mochi crunch!
    (Signature used REAL butter - I don't know about its successor, Regal).

    At home, on microwaved or freshly popped (in a pot) popcorn; melted real butter and one of the following -- or a couple of the following, in different bowls:

    - kosher salt, mochi crunch and furikake (the nori kind, of course)
    - lemon pepper (really ono!)
    - kosher salt, chipotle powder and a little cayenne
    - garlic salt (w/parsely bits -- pretty!)
    - Old Bay seasoning (tastes similar to Dixie Grill's popcorn)

    The possibilities are limited only by one's spice selection.

    Now that I'm writing this, it occurs to me one could also flavor the butter during/after the melting process ... or use leftover herbed or spiced butter from another recipe.

    Ho, I'm ono for popcorn now!

    (GREAT poll, by the way!)

    Curry powder works well. Li hing mui powder probably would work, too.

    Extra butter and salt at [some of] the theaters. "Extra" only because the regular amount there seems nearly nonexistant. Otherwise I don't actually like to eat popcorn. Something about the smell drives me crazy. If I do eat, I can only eat so much before I feel sickly. I like the kakimochi/furikake mixes in small doses, as well. I used to eat that cheddar flavored popcorn that comes in the big tin can but I seemed to pick the stale bunches a lot so I just stopped eating them altogether.

    I hate movie popcorn. I hate carnival popcorn. I only like popcorn popped my way: With as little oil as possible. No butter. No salt. Kaki mochi, most preferably the yakko shape. Furikake is also good, but purely optional. Light, dry, airy, fluffy kernals are best enhanced by kaki mochi.

    The one exception: I really like that microwaved caramel popcorn, but only as long as the caramel is soft; once it hardens, it's trash.

    Kilinahe loves to pop her own, in a cast iron skillet, minimal oil, a little more than minimal salt. Me? I'm not picky, quite lazy, and cheap. I tend to stock up on the Act II microwave popcorn and sakura-style arare at WalMart and make a simple mix twice a week to chow down during our Netflix movies.

    When we want to live it up a little, we get those easy-breezy "hurricane popcorn" kits at Costco.

    Green tabasco is good.

    Chili power and olive oil is what I usually do.

    Air-popped only. (!)

    Nope, actually it's a local reference to a time back in the early 1970's.

    Normally, I like it plain, maybe with a little salt.

    The only microwave popcorn I like is the Smart Balance brand. Has enough salt and butter for me. Some of the microwave popcorns on the market have wayyyy too much butter for my liking and i feel dirty after eating them

    but when I go to the movies, I'll splurge for the butter on my 'corn . but I never eat more than half a small bag. i dunno how y'all eat those large ones!

    The Varisty Theater there is squeeze bottle of melted butter you can use to flavor the popcorn but it usally just does the top part of the bag. Also used Kit Kat bites in the popcorn bag today.

    Heh, we went to Restaurant Row last month and my mom nearly died of happiness when she saw the butter dispenser they had. She wants to go there all the time now just because she can put her own butter.

    Speaking of that, I'm surprised movie theatres in Hawaii haven't offered SHAVE ICE yet (or have they?). Sounds like the perfect combination with Mochi Crunch-Popcorn.

    I like the Kettle Korn popcorn. I also like those 100-calorie packets for the microwave. Helps me maintain my ahem girlish figure ahem.

    Does Icee count? In any event making shave ice with a lot of flavor options does take time to manage, add to the fact that shave ice tends to be served with part of it outside it's container, making the possibilty of things spilling in the theater itself.

    It might be nice to have but it's impartical.

    I love Icee at the movies. And at the movies you can get a sprite one. My favorite Icee spot is the crack seed store on Koko Head Avenue in Kaimuki. That guy in there is such a sweetie pie.

    I used to love it drenched in butter and salt.

    Then I worked a few years in movie theatres, where one of the perks was "all the popcorn and soda you want, for free." That was when I was in high-school, and you can imagine how much I ingested.

    So...until about three years ago, even the smell made me ill. Now, I can handle a few handfuls again, but not much.

    True. ICEE works. As far as making a mess, an overloaded box or bag of popcorn is just as bad, if not worse.

    We grew up with JIFFY POP. Far superior in flavor and crunch to the microwave stuff. Used to scare the heck out of me as a kid when the foil would expand to maximum pop. Glad to see they still sell this nostalgic brand.

    Speaking of brands, Food Network recently did a biography on Orville Redenbacher. The man sure was into the science of the perfect pop. That wasn't just marketing fluff.
