Just wanted to know what everybody likes to put on there popcorn, before
sitting down to watch that new blu-ray release.

I like my popcorn, hot air popped and drizzled with melted organic butter
and sprinkled liberally with cayenne pepper.

I actually make my popcorn in a pot on the stove using hot oil. When the oils hot enough, I throw in the kernels and season with salt.

As far as topings, I like an array of different ones. Traditional butter is always good. I've had "ass kickin" popcorn before which was extremely hot. I've had it with old bay which is pretty good, ranch seasoning...but I guess if I had to choose...I'd say just straight salt and butter.
If you love your country...you're gonna have to love moonshine.

Nothing better than the salty popcorn with the chocolate. Sounds weird, but try it!

Even better would be salty popcorn with chocolate and peanut butter?

I've tried popcorn topped with ramen seasoning. It doesn't seem to blend in well but it tastes alright.

That's because it's the oil that movie chains across the country use to make there popcorn.
But there's some controversy about coconut oil.
Some say it's bad for your heart, but there are some experts that say it's good for your heart.
Soooooo...

I'm not a salt guy - much prefer the sweet popcorn. I also like that toffee covered popcorn you can buy, although I'm more than aware of its awful health implications.

For many years people have been brainwashed into thinking that margarine is healthier than natural organic butter when it comes to food preparation.

While butter is a 100% natural food product, margarine is 100% man-made. This is a substance that you would never ever eat again if you knew how it was manufactured, and what it consisted of.

Many people believe that by consuming margarine, they will lower their cholesterol levels. Cholesterol is actually needed by our bodies in order to maintain intestinal health. It also assists with brain and nervous system development in children.

Butter is a lot better for us than margarine because it contains the following ingredients that are needed by our bodies in order to help us function optimally. It contains vitamins A, D, E and K in their natural forms. It contains a category of fatty acids known as glycospingolipids, which help to prevent gastrointestinal infections, especially in children and the elderly. This is why it is important for children to only consume organic, raw full-cream dairy products. Butter also contains selenium as well as iodine which is utilized by the thyroid.

Butter also helps to prevent many diseases and conditions which are major cash cows for big pharma: such as arthritis, cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease (those consuming butter were 50% less likely to develop heart disease as opposed to those who consumed margarine products), thyroid health, asthma, fertility problems and obesity (the CLA and short-and-medium chain fatty acids found in butter also help to prevent weight gain, making it a far better option health-and-taste wise to have on your dinner table).

This is what I use as well. It's dangerously good!

The whole setup can be purchased for under $55 and includes the following:
Stir Crazy Popcorn Popper
Flavacol
Coconut Popcorn Popping Oil
*Your choice of popcorn*

One box of Flavicol and one tub of the coconut oil will last for a very long time.

I currently use Orville Redenbacher popcorn, which is good, but I haven't tried much else. If anyone has any other suggestions, I'd definitely love to hear them.

Air popped with butter. Nothing is better, or simpler.

Here's another popcorn popper you might want to consider:

You'll want to use virgin coconut oil for popping corn.
It's healthier for you than regular coconut oil:

Made this as an appetizer once. People really liked it.

Melted butter and tossed into the popcorn, then drain out excess butter. Topped with freshly grated parmesan and truffle salt. Thought about sauteing garlic and parsley into the butter as it melted. Gotta try that again.
