Guacamole seasoning, gives it a zesty (cool ranch) sort of flavor.

Here in San Antonio, we like to spice it up with a sprinkle of chile powder seasoning!

Speaking of zest in popcorn - has anyone tried Quinn microwave popcorn? The corn is organic, there are no preservatives, no artificial ingredients, they use expeller pressed oils high in omega 3's, and all in a compostable bag.

And the flavors are great - Parmesan and Rosemary, Maple and Sea Salt, Butter and Sea Salt, Hickory Smoked Cheddar, Olive Oil and Herbs, Lemon and Sea Salt, and Sea Salt.

We tried them and love them.

Old Bay wins. Crab seasoning and popcorn at the same time - you can't go wrong.

Too bad I no longer drink beer.

Smile I love popcorn as a great snack food...

I usually spice it up with garlic powder…black pepper. Or if you prefer sweet, try cinnamon and a pinch of sea salt. Just experiment with you favorite "taste" buds…you might create the next big thing to butter. Though thats hard to beat seriously.

Great recommendation, too bad I do not own a microwave.

Meh, how often do you eat popcorn? It's a small expense if you only eat it every so often.

Default Hurricane Popcorn - From Hawaii

OK - you gotta hear from Hawaii on this one. It may be an acquired taste, but to me there's nothing like a big bowl of Hurricane Popcorn:

First you butter the popcorn - best to do this in a brown paper bag and shake'em up good.
Then add Furikake - whatever flavor you like best. That's a mix of nori (the seaweed around sushi), some pepper flakes, some tuna flakes, soy sauce, miso, like that.... You can find it in Asian grocery sections in the stores.
Next you add Mochi Crunch (we call it Arare) - It can even be Wasabi Arare which will make it hotter.

Shake it all good and pour in a bowl and devour it!

You can find all these ingredients in every grocery store and Longs Drug store in Hawaii. Or you can look in the Asian food section at Safeway or in the Asian grocers in your area. Alternatively, you can probably go to this site and order it already packaged up (disclaimer: I don't know this group so I'm not endorsing them for reliability.)

You can also go online and type in Hurricane Popcorn. The Hawaii Popcorn company has a great selection and they were the first to market this though many of us were making this before they started their company. As we say in Hawaii: ONOLICIOUS! (Ono is Hawaiian for GOOOOOOOOD)

I eat popcorn 3-4, sometimes more, times a week. I'd go broke if I used microwaveable popcorn (certainly anything organic, preservative free, compostable, etc.)

I buy a large 2 lb. bag of kernels for a couple bucks and a stack of brown paper lunch sacks for about a buck. I microwave 1/3 c. of kernels in the bag (top folded over a couple times) for 2 minutes. No chemicals, no preservatives, and cheeeeeeap!
