Cheesy Popcorn I can add whatever spices I'm in the mood for how about cinnamon/sugar or seasoned salt & taco spice. To anonymous who suggested 'use a spoon'. I enjoy popcorn because I can use my fingers kind of a habit of reaching hand in bowl; but I tried with a spoon while I was working on my computer. Pretty Cool! Thanks Pros: Popcorn is my favorite snack Read More

Eat it with a spoon! Sure it may seem a little silly to eat popcorn with a spoon. Once you try it though you'll be hooked! You get the cheese with the popcorn all the way to the bottom of the bowl. As an added bonus your fingers stay clean so you can text play games or use the tv remote! Pros: You get to eat the cheese with the popcorn! Cons: If anyone is watching you they may think you are a little weird. Read More

This is an excellent snack! I cook my popcorn on the stove since I don't have an air popper. After it's cooked I spray it with a little olive oil to get the goody to stick. And if I'm craving salt I'll add a light dash of onion salt. The combinations are endless! I've even tried parmesan cheese with a mixture of itailian herbs and it turned out really good. Read More

spray air-popped popcorn with cooking spray and the seasoning sticks better. I use olive oil cooking spray and it works. I've also tried popcorn spritz in a spray can it is the same as cooking spray but may cost more. Read More

If you don't have an air popper - Use a paper bag to pop your corn! Put kernels of corn in a brown paper lunch bag and turn the open edge under - put it on popcorn setting. Great popcorn and no mess to clean up. Add no fat olive oil spray parmesan cheese and cayenne after it is cooked to your preference. Read More

OK but don't use the microwaved popcorn. Please see recent reseach on PFOAs which are considered carcinogenic and especially should be avoided by children. Pros: This is a sensible 'treat' Cons: Microwave popcorn bags contain cancer causing chemicals Read More

Use fat-free organic olive oil cooking spray just a spritz or two to make the toppings stick better to the air popped popcorn. I use Pam but use your favorite brand. It's hard to get any toppings to stick to the air popped popcorn they usually end up at the bottom of the bowl. Read More

Taste is great but I have never been able to get the cheese to stick to the popcorn I wind up with a pile of cheese at the bottom of the bowl. Read More
