I don't like microwave bag popcorns. I prefer to buy loose kernels and pop them in one of these. Then I spray lightly with coconut oil and season with some combination of sea salt, garlic salt, parmesean cheese, or nutritional yeast.

I have this contraption to pop loose kernels in the microwave.

If I'm using loose kernels, though, I prefer to make it in a pot on the stove top, using this method.

For packaged popcorn, I love Skinnypop. That's the popcorn I eat most often because the two options listed above are more work than (1) open bag; (2) eat. Not to mention, the stuff is delicious.

If you like Skinnypop, youíll probably like Simply Popped microwaved popcorn.

My favorite popcorn is home-popped kernels made in a cast-iron pan, then doused with Challenge Euro butter. But the OP asked about packaged popcorn, not home-popped.

Ooooh! I forgot Boom Chicka Pop. So good! And also pre-popped so just open and eat.

Herr's fire roasted sweet corn popcorn. Aldi brings it in a couple of times a year under their own label with a similar name.

I use one of these on the stove and pop in butter-infused olive oil (I have to be careful because the smoke/burn point is fairly low for the olive oil). https://www.whirleypopshop.com/stove...rs.htmlhttp://

Add real butter and salt, delicious!

Agree - I could eat a big bag of Boom Chicka Pop or Skinny Pop every night.
