I, too, am a big popcorn lover. I have it at least once a week. While I have an hot air maker, I prefer Carl's method--hot oil in a pan. Yes, and I tinker around with different flavor additives. I've even grown my own popcorn (with mixed results).

A year or more ago, someone here recommended Ladyfinger popcorn, so I bought about 5 pounds of it.  I does taste as good or better than any other brand I've tried, but it's small, so it has more hard shell material compared to the popped white portion.  I don't like that, so I'm not going to buy anymore.  I'll keep trying new brands, Walgreens for one.

Sometimes I'll put some grated cheese on my popcorn.

As I get older, many things, including popcorn become more bland to the taste, so I've tried many seasonings on popcorn to spice things up.  I usually put spices in my favorite margarine and microwave it until the water mostly evaporates, then spread about 3 tablespoons of that over the corn.

Spud, Walgreens brand popcorn is just fine.  It pops perfectly on the stove top.  I made a batch the other day and only had one unpopped kernel in the bottom of the bowl.  Of course you can flavor popcorn with a myriad of toppings and seasonings, but I just pop it in the pot with vegetable oil with a little salt added in.  That suits me fine, but I guess I could experiment.  Some movie theaters offer sprinklings like garlic salt, chilli powder, etc.  I've never tired them.

In my younger days, when my nose was more sensitive, I loved the smell of popcorn, but the taste was always disappointing.  No where near as good as the smell.

Does the Walgreens popcorn taste as good as other brands Carl?

I've been on a popcorn kik lately.  Walgreens had a special:  two 46 oz. jars for $6.  That's almost six pounds of kernels!  Healthy, filling, and frugal snacking.  Plus you can't beat the smell.

Chili sin carne y con fruta recipe for Joan

300 grams of veggie ´mincemeat´

jars or tins of beans - any mix - about 800 grams

500 grams of tomatoes

2 or 3 big onions

500 grams of pineapple or peach - if in tins, unsweetened

a tin of concentrated tomato puree

4 cloves of garlic

cayenne pepper, black pepper, paprika powder, nigella or other spices you might like

Sauté the onions, add pressed garlic and fry a minute longer, add sliced tomatoes, tomato puree, spices, stir put a lid on the pan and let it simmer. Drain the beans and the fruit, save the fruit juice. When the tomato and onion stew is ready, add the beans and the fruit and let it simmer again. If it´s too wet take the lid off the pan, if it´s too dry add some fruitjuice. It will be ready in half an hour or so.

Chili tastes better after a night in the fridge. I always make a lot of it and freeze the leftover portions.

One thing for certain, I'll never buy corn (esp on the cob) in a grocery store. While the spring rolls look good, I'm not sure I would want to tackle making them. Guess I'm too "midwestern". I did roast 3 kinds of potatoes last night (reds, golds, sweet), rolled in olive oil, thyme, parmeson cheese, and added turmeric. Pretty good, although I wish turmeric wouldn't stain my plate, etc.
