Microwave Popcorn

Updated on March 21, 2012

We LOVE Popcorn !!!

We love going to the movies to catch the latest releases and enjoy a tub of hot, buttery popcorn!

But with the larger TVs and sound systems on the market, why do we need to go out to see a show?

What could be better than relaxing at home in front of a big screen TV with a nice surround sound system, a good movie and your own freshly popped bowl of popcorn?

No waiting in lines, no ticket prices, no sticky floors and no disruptive whispers from others.

Plus, you can pause the movie if you need a break.

BUT... How do you get that "movie theater" popcorn at home??? There are many brands of microwave popcorn and each brand has many choices with various degrees of butter, calories and taste. So which brand and style do you find is the best. We're talking taste, texture and most importantly, fewest "old maids'.

When do you enjoy your popcorn more ???

If you're like me and enjoy a bowl of popcorn while watching TV........

How often do you eat popcorn ???

"You'll like it better or my name isn't Orville Redenbacher." That's the promise Orville made more than 40 years ago—and the same promise we stand by today. Orville Redenbacher dedicated his life to perfecting a lighter, fluffier popcorn.
