    I personally like using soy sauce, oregano, garlic powder and brewers yeast flakes. It tastes decadent but it is quite healthy.

    A little bit of Emeril's Essence is good on that buttered popcorn. Also, as for "brands", I LOVE Black Jewel. The black kernels pop perfectly white. Deep flavor, too.

    Black Jewel is wonderful! So much more interesting than everything else in the supermarket.

    I'd never had kettle corn until we were in Illinois last summer (at the Naperville, IL "Rib Fest"). I couldn't get enough of that stuff. A couple months later, I found some online sources and ordered a box. Yummy!

    I'd vote for "mix" at the Garrett Popcorn Factory in Chicago---caramel and cheese kernels in one yummy bag!!

    My favorite movie theatre popcorn can be found at the Ritz Five Theatre in downtown Philadelphia.

    Can you tell us the proportions that you use? Do you just sprinkle away until it tastes right?

    Ahh, popcorn. I love it! Especially buttered. I agree with Stan regarding theater popcorn in Philly. The Ritz theaters in Philly and in So. Jersey are tops! For caramel corn, I like Johnson's on the Boardwalk in Ocean City, NJ and available in some supermarkets during the summer months.

    I add just a little soy sauce until it gets moist like butter normally does. Then I add the other spices to my own mood and liking. I pretty much take out the whole spice rack when I feel ambitious. Let me know if you try it.

    I am also a huge fan of the "Chicago Mix" popcorn - caramel, cheese and buttered in one bag - the place inside Chicago's Union Station train depot makes it just right - popcorn you need napkins for. And it's warm, mm.

    I forgot to add that I also like to sprinkle on the packet from Kraft Mac&Cheese on homemade buttered popcorn. Oranger is better!

    I am traveling to NO to do lunch tomorrow at Uglesich's and currently in Lake Charles. I just sampled popcorn popped in lard rendered from pigs. Out of the box, it sounded repulsive, but I tried it and it was wonderful. I could not do much due to my dietary restriction, but these cajuns are always on to something great.

    Too bad I will miss Stephen Rushmore at Uglesich's

    I tried it, minus the brewer's yeast (we didn't have any) and I liked it. My wife, however, sounded like a cat coughing up a hairball.

    I'm sure we can all agree the worst place to get popcorn is usually the local movie theater. I do, however, have fond memories of the popcorn at the Music Box theater on Southport in Chicago. The Music Box was a second run theater with a moorish interior, complete with night sky and a house organ.

    The best part was walking into the lobby and seeing (and smelling)the popcorn actually being popped (instead of pre-popped and warmed by a 60 watt light bulb). Then, instead of the bubbling pot of yellow chemicals, there would be a pound of beautiful Wisconsin butter melting away. I haven't had theater popcorn that good in 17 years.

    LVW if you have Whirley Pop popper you can use goo grade popcorn and add 2 tbl spoons of sugar after popping starts and make very good "kettle corn" at home. For change try brown sugar it comes out somewhere between Kettle and Caramel Corn.

    I made some tonight like I haven't done in years. Don't butter or salt it, but sprinkle plenty of Kraft grated parmesan (in the "can"). I also added some grated Romano. REALLY tasty. Oh, by the way, this won't work on "air-popped", if anyone still does that.

    I live near the oldest continuously operating (summer seasons) drive-in theater in the U.S. I haven't been there yet this year but their popcorn machine has been operating for countless years too. It pops all throughout the double features and they use a mix of real melted butter and that buttery oil, which they squirt into the cardboard tubs - not just on the top but also a couple of pumps halfway through filling them up. Mmmmm.

    Lots of butter and lots of sea salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper, lots of napkins.

    Why not do your own kettle corn? 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels,
    1/4 cup white sugar,1/4 cup vegetable oil. Place the popcorn and sugar in a large pot with vegetable oil. Over a medium heat, begin to pop the popcorn. Constantly shake the pot to ensure that the popcorn kernels and oil do not burn. Once the popping has slowed, remove the pot from heat. Tada, easy enough.

    Tanks FDM, I am going to try some Kettle Corn as soon as I find me a pot. I think I am going to try the Brown sugar style.

    Two favorite things to do with popcorn:

    1. a spritz of olive oil and a little garlic powder

    or

    2. toss in a handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips--messy but good

    CAUTION: I've learned the hard way that the two kinds together don't mix well.
