Unfortunately that microwave popcorn is covered in chemicals (not that you were talking about that). They can't make healthy easy can they.
Yeah the microwave stuff isn't great. Not sure if they sell it in the USA but there is a brand called Metcalfe's Skinny Popcorn here in the UK which is a solid choice for healthy popcorn. They have some flavourings to make them appealing too.
You can buy popcorn kernels at the store and put 1/4 cup in a brown paper bag, and microwave on popcorn setting (I have to stop mine about 30 seconds early to avoid burning). To add flavor spray lightly w Pam and sprinkle some garlic salt. Yummy!
@HeatherH104 I love that it's a common thing for microwaves to have a popcorn setting in the US. We need this in the UK:-)
On the back of some of that popcorn it tells you NOT to use the popcorn setting though.
@souther29 - Guess we must eat a lot of popcorn to make it standard to have popcorn settings. It's interesting, I assumed all microwaves had that setting
@Lady Guinevere- I've been popping it that way for years without issue. It's delicious-no issue.
I didn't say that you could not pop it in the microwave. I said that on the popcorn bag it says not to use the popcorn button on your microwave but to self time it at about 1 minute 45 seconds. Sorry it that was not clear.
I always end up hurting my fingernails trying to break into those tough pistachios.
