Have you ever tried the "natural style" version of microwave popcorn? Don't. It's just plain and bland tasting, livestock food.
In the opposite corner, weighing in at 100 calories per serving, are the mass-market brands. These are really delicious, and just the right size for not sharing. The
problem with these brands is that they are "miracles" of modern food science. They are rife with artificial additives and unpronouncable chemicals.
What we propose is a machine which can receive a just-popped bag of popcorn (that is compatible). The popcorn is high-quality, pure, whole grain popping corn, in a high quality, chemical-free paper, like hemp or something. The POPCORN DUSTER punches two holes in the bag, vampire-like, and a fan creates a vortex inside the bag. Then a measured amount of the powdered butter-salt mixture is injected and gets evenly distributed by the vortex. Viola!

Microwave Popcorn... I'm pretty sure that
the salty-fatty pleasures of Flavacol are
