Original Post

If for no other reason than I'm thoroughly addicted to it. I eat at least a bag a day.

Ever since I started WW and began chemo, I've cut out pretty much all of the bad cravings. I'm no longer drinking a gallon plus of milk per day, no longer eating candy bars, avoiding most ice cream save for slim-a-bear krunch bars, no more stacks of PBJ sandwiches when I've had a bad day...

The microwave popcorn is it. I usually alternate between Orville Redenbacher Light Movie Theater (1.5 WW points per bag) and Orville Redenbacher 94% fat free kettle corn (also 1.5 WW points per bag) and then treat myself once a week with my favorite: Pop Secret Movie-Theater Style!

Do you like microwave popcorn? What flavors do you like best? I'm tempted to try the spicy nacho, but it's much higher in points....

I have had the spicy nacho. it was more like salsa flavored to me and less cheesy.

I like to add garlic powder to my popcorn

I love microwave popcorn. I've never ventured out past butter and kettle corn. I do like making it from kernels and putting parmesan cheese on it.

MP, I freaking LOVE microwave popcorn. My father and I are addicted as well. He buys jumbo boxes with a dozen bags or more. I know people are going to get up in this grill about how terrible it is for us, but damn. LOVE. IT.

Salsa flavor could be yummy to me. :)

Hmmm... parmesan cheese. I'll have to try that. That shouldn't be too many points.

Pop Secret Homestyle 100 calorie bag is where it's at! Just a hint of real butter and table salt. I lust for it- bigtime.

I used to like microwave popcorn but it was more of a passing thing. I much prefer stovetop or air popped.

I have one of these and LOVE it!

it's hands down the best ever! The popcorn comes out tasting like hot air popped. It's light and oh so good!

I put ordinary popcorn in a bowl and nuke it.
then I drizzle olive oil on it & sprinkle it
with parmesan cheese.
It smells like stinky feet, but I love it anyway.
