OK I went to pop it here at work and um...it didn't work out. After 30 seconds in the microwave, I smelled scorching...and I looked in and a hole was burning near the top of the bag. I took the bag out (not a kernel had even popped!!!) and noticed a few other places where the bag was starting to burn already. It wouldn't have made it 2-2.5 minutes.
I'll try again with another bag when I get home. I wonder if this has anything to do with the oils that are used. Since they are not hydrogenated, the package says there may be slight staining on the bags because the oils are liquid and not solidified.
I have used this popcorn at home with a 1000 watt microwave with a popcorn sensor and a built in turntable and it turns out great! I use a saucer to elevate the bag and that helps with using all the kernels. We try to eat a healthy lifestyle and not eat a lot of trans fat, though the price of this popcorn may not be worth it... I like the Paul Newman and I think that has no trans fats though it is hard to find it in grocery stores. Health food and our natural foods coop has it. Sometimes I have micro pop popcorn which is basic airpop and a little real butter on it! The land o lakes sounds really good... May have to try that!
i by the jar of kernels at the store. then i measure out as little or as much as i want into a paer bag and fold the tope over a couple of times. then throw in the microwave and wait. i eat so much popcorn that this is the most economic way for me too go. as well, i cant ever finish a whole bag of popcorn on my own so this allows for better portin conrtol on my part. best thing is that there is nothing on the popcorn. just the taste of good popcorn. i then season it on my own if i am in the mood for something more.

You can dream a little dream or you can live a little dream, I'd rather live it because dreamers always chase but never get it."
I tried the Newmans popcorn and I threw the whole box away after eating a few bites of the first bag. We're popcorn junkies at my house and nobody liked it. Maybe we had a bad box? It had an odd taste to it. Not corny - more like cardboard. There is another popcorn thread here in Food - there are suggestions for popping it in a pan with olive oil, plus flavorings...
