I don't think popcorn without the "skins" is possible! After all, the husk is what holds in the heat to make the steam that causes the pop! I make air popped, spray lightly with butter flavored Pam, and sprinkle with parmesan or one of the flavored popcorn salts. Chili-lime is nice!

John Deere microwave popcorn is absolutely fantastick. Best I've ever had. But, oh, the calories in it are insane.
Learned an easy way to make microwave popcorn at a fraction of the cost. Use a brown paper lunch bag, add desired amount of plain popcorn (I use 2 tablespoons) which gives me a small cereal bowl. I do not add any oil to the bag.
Put microwave on popcorn setting. Done .
I used to be so addicted to popcorn and the amount I was eating on a nighly basis was insane.
I actually had a dream some time ago where I was in a room filled with popcorn and I had to eat my way out of this room.

The wife and I went to the movies yesterday and had theater popcorn and a COKE. Just call us crazy and out of control. LOL But it sure was a nice treat. My wife really loves popcorn and theater popcorn without a cold COKE just ain't right. So a small baby step back, but that's what life is all about. I did have trouble really finding a reliable value for it. It was a medium size and with just one pump of butter, no additional salt. MMMmmmmgood
I have an air pop microwavable one and its good, with parmesian cheese sprinkled on it, I don't use salt, can't and I dont' use butter, and I think its a nice treat or snack for me and its not bad washing it up either.
I make popcorn in an old microwave popcorn popper. I am worried if the heated plastic might be bad for our health and can't seem to find out anywhere. I just saw the previous post about simply putting the unpopped popcorn to cook it. LOVE IT! I don't put anything on it except for unsalted butter on the rare occasion. What kind of spices do you put on the popcorn?

My wife loves popcorn and I like it. She read an article yesterday about movie popcorn and it's nutritional value. I am quite sure they were way off. First off, they talk about serving size as being a large container. Every movie theater I go to has their own definition of LARGE. We've also had to return popcorn due to the extreme saltiness of it. So who knows what the soda jerk was on when they add salt and/or butter. Some say they have real butter, some use that butter flavoring. Then of course there is the self serve and the article didn't say how drenched one could make their popcorn to get their values. So I would say NEVER trust the nutritional value given for movie popcorn, just too many variables.
As far as home popcorn, we us the microwave stuff and it suits us just fine. I do want to try that brown paper bag trick next time though, we got some old popcorn from the hot air popper days. I tried doing it old school once in a fry pan and it didn't turn out so good.

I make air-popped corn with the butter-flavored Pam and parmesan cheese! Also there are some great seasonings out there especially for popcorn. I have jalapeno, nacho cheese, and chili-lime. VERY few calories, too!
I used to have an air popcorn popper, but there were too many unpopped kernals in with the popcorn. So I got rid of it and now just pop 100 calorie smart pop kind.

To DOODLENG....I heard about the air pop machine but I didn't think it would hold any added flavorings because there is no oils on the popped kernels. I didn't know you could add Pam spray... Thanks for the info
