Freshly grated Parmesan cheese and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper dress up air-popped popcorn.

"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. "

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

Popcorn is my favorite snack
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!

You get to eat the cheese with the popcorn!

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.


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.

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.
