What's the best kind of microwave popcorn?

Asked by ezraglenn (3454 points ) June 23rd, 2007

I usually use Newman's Own, the "natural" variety, which is somewhat buttered (I dont know why they call it natural...) and I like the brand for various reasons, but it's not perfect. What is everyone else's favorite? Im not a huge butter person. We also keep Jiffy Pop and raw kernels in the house for stovetop popcorn, but sometimes its just too convenient not to do microwave.

Ah I can't remember the name.. But the best stuff i've had was this organic black kernel popcorn. The stuff popped super white and it had almost a sweet taste to it. I'll see if i can come up with the name.

NONE! Microwave popcorn is the new asbestos . . . There are tons of articles out now on not only the dangers of the bag lining, but the chemical flavorings. Go air popped.

Orville Redenbacher's (sp?) is my favorite out of the few microwaveable popcorns I've eaten. It's great not just because of the taste, but because of the variety. Since this company is so rich, they can afford to make all kinds of different popcorn. So that's my favorite.

Agreed with the above that Orville Redenbacher's is excellent. For healthy (as well as a more distinct taste), I recommend getting Kettle Corn (no matter the brand).

I'd have to disagree with everyone and say Newman's Own.

Reddenbacher's Movie Theater Butter Flavored.... probably the worst for you.. but the absolute best.
